We are in a nursing crisis.  Working in nursing pretty much all of my life, I have seen a lot of issues from patients spitting, punching, biting, kicking and slamming nurses against walls.  Is this behavior acceptable?  Absolutely not!  It has been my mission to advocate for others and help them to advocate for themselves, so helping nurses is one of my highest passions.

Nearing the end of my DNP (Doctor of Nursing Practice) project and program, I am honored to have had the privilege of working with some of the best healthcare professionals that have helped me navigate through the doctoral process.  They have helped me grow my focus instead of patient on nurse abuse but the overall picture.  It took me a very long time to get others around me to see the problem and proud that they would look at me like I was insane!  Needless to say, it is important to educate everyone about the issues that we face and give support to all nurses and healthcare workers.
