Ask A Travel Nurse: How can we strengthen the Nursing Profession?


Gypsy, I was forced into resignation from a job that I loved to avoid a wrongful termination due to trumped-up accusations. This happens a lot in the nursing industry.  What can we do as a profession to avoid this?

Thank you, Karen

Thank you for reading The Gypsy Nurse. You have taken the first step on your journey to become A Gypsy Nurse.

I hate to hear that this has happened to you.  Too many good nurses with valuable experience have been lost from hospitals and even our profession because of issues like this, as well as burn out or retirement.  I worry that the profession as a whole is losing a valuable source of knowledge and experience.  Who will mentor our new nurses and train our nursing students?

Personally, I don’t know the answer to this question.  I do have an upcoming Guest Post by an experienced nurse titled: Going A Step Beyond Camaraderie.   Hopefully her post will help us all as nurses understand the importance of building Camaraderie and standing together.

While your waiting for the guest post to publish on August 6th, take some time and read a previous post I wrote regarding Nurses Building Camaraderie.  Make sure to subscribe to The Gypsy Nurse to be notified of the most recent content as it’s published.

Do you have thought on what this nurse could have done?  What would you have done in this situation?  I love hearing the opinions of my readers.  Your opinion could be the perfect solution for someone.  Please share your thoughts below in the comments.
