“Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people”
– Eleanor Roosevelt
Nursing badly needs great minds; all of health care does, or course.
All nurses would do well to consider this great woman’s words.
Nurses would do even better to apply them in their own lives, their own work.
We badly need ideas, the more, the fresher, the better!
And we badly need to become more receptive to each others’ ideas. How better to encourage them?
We must rise above our own lives, our individual interests, and build our future. THE future.
ONLY IDEAS CAN DO THAT!
