New York Times Calling All Nurses!

Newspapers72x721 Wild, loud thunderstorms hit the area pretty badly last night, right when I was on the computer answering a few emails from patients with dystonia. They seem to write at all hours of the night, desperate for answers and a cure. I thought my computer would blow out as well as me. I had fears of being struck by lightening because of my freaky DBS wires acting as antennas!

The New York Times is searching for nurses to feature in a November issue focusing on nursing leadership, compassion, attentiveness, and contribution to society. Four winners — three practicing nurses and one nurse educator — will be chosen from a group of candidates nominated by patients, their families, students, colleagues, and medical organizations. Winners will be featured in the New York Times Magazine in November 2008. Deadline for submissions: August 1, 2008.

To make a nomination , simply click here and begin writing about that special nurse and/or nurse educator today.

Dr.Neighbors has taught nursing at the University of Arkansas for over 35 years. She embodies professionalism and she has never lost her enthusiasm for nursing. She teaches community health nursing and is consistently rated by students as a favorite instructor. The evaluations consistently mention her passion for nursing, her caring for students, and her ability to inspire others. She has written and edited textbooks and is a co-organizer of an annual conference for school nurses that is attended by school nurses from around the stete. She is generous with her colleagues and either formally or informally mentors new faculty and serves as a role model of teaching excellence. She is very deserving of this honor.
