I hope everyone is enjoying fall and the slighter cooler temperatures. November is National Gratitude Month which is fitting with Thanksgiving looming in the next few weeks. While there has been much change and loss over the last year and a half or so, there is much for which to give thanks. Something as simple as admiring a beautiful sunrise on the way to work can help with a positive mindset. Thank someone for something they have done – everyone will get a boost from your positivity and thanks. We have much to contribute and our patients and colleagues are thankful for our unique clinical gifts.
With our 2021 regional conference in the rearview mirror, we are looking forward to our 2022 conference in Birmingham, AL. Stay tuned for more information as the details unroll. We hope to see you there.
When you have a moment, please look at the serwocn.org website for 2021 conference photos and board positions that will be up for election in the spring. If you have a little time and are willing to give back to your region, we would welcome your self-nomination. Additionally, start thinking now of those stellar colleagues that you would like to recognize via either a SERWOCN Nurse of the Year or Rookie of the year. The board looks forward to reading your blinded nominations to select the winners. The winners and nominees will be honored at conference.
If you have any updates from your state, please go to the news page on the website and contact your state reporter. We know you are doing good things – let’s share!
Take care of yourself in the midst of caring for others and practice your gratitude muscle.
