Expanding my Horizons

In about 3 weeks I am going on a trip to India.  The invitation to go on this trip to visit holy people and tour ancient India came to me at the last minute and although it takes me out of my comfort zone, I am looking forward to the trip.  I will be visiting ayervedic healing centers, ashrams and temples with a group of 10 women.  Today the itinerary arrived and although none of the sites were familiar, I think this is what I appreciated the most. The trip is literally off the beaten path.  I am grateful to have th chance to see and experience the ancient country and old healing treatments and lifestyles.  I plan to take many pictures and keep a journal of my observations and experiences that I witness on this journey.  Recently I learned that whenever I am facing a decision, choice, or opportunity in life, I should decide in favor of my passions.  Being a world traveler and learning new things is on my short list of passions.  What is on yours?  I will be discussing this concept in the next blogs and I hope you are interest in discovering your own passions too. Namaste, Diann

Hi everyone, I wanted to let you know that my next free faculty webinar for Nurse Educators will be on July 9th at 8AM Central time and again on July 10th (Wed) at 6:30 PM Central time. The topic will be on the Quality and Safety in Nursing Education Initiative (QSEN) and how you can thread this content into courses, lab and clinical.  I will be posting the links to the webinar shortly and sending out the reminders through my RoadScholar email system. I was recently a poster presenter at the QSEN Institute  I look forward to having you attend. Take care, Diann

Diann on the Podium at ACHNE

ImageHi everyone, among my various interests is nursing history.  I just completed a presentation at ACHNE in San Antonio (the Association of Community Health Nurse Educators). Additionally I do a one person show that features the famous nurse founder of the NY VNS, Lillian Wald.  If I have another life, I would love to get more involved in research regarding the history of nursing. It has a great deal to inspire our work today.
