Kim Froehlich, MSN, RN, NEA-BC KFroehlich@relias.com Happy Nurses Week! This is a week that I’ve always appreciated as a nurse. It reminds each of us to take a moment and honor our profession, our colleagues, and ourselves. Nursing has been the number one trusted profession for the last consecutive 16 years, with firefighters deservedly ranking number one in 2001. Nursing is also one of the most diverse professions in the nation, with opportunities for clinical growth, professional role expansion, social advocacy, and leadership, to name just a few of the many areas where nurses practice using their unique knowledge and expertise. Personally, I have had the pleasure of having a very robust, creative, and exciting career in nursing and it is one that continues to develop as I grow and evolve. Nursing provides access to a fulfilling and meaningful career wherever we choose to practice. I encourage you this Nurses Week to open your mind to the possibilities within our profession; take time to recognize your own creative genius and the wealth of knowledge that you current resident or Presort Standard US Postage PAID Permit #14 Princeton, MN 55371 as an individual, and as a nurse have to share in this world. Whether you work in a clinical setting, a business setting, whether you’re a formal leader, or providing direct care, you are making Kim Froehlich an impact on those you serve while transforming healthcare in this nation every day. For decades nurses have been recognized for their dedicated efforts in providing care to those in need. Nurses provide the lion’s share of the care needed in clinical settings, and we carry that responsibility with us as we take our professional skills and expertise where our passion leads us. That also means that we know not only what needs to get done, but how to get it done, and why it needs to get done. We know how to realize the intended outcome clinically and holistically. This expertise translates to any work we choose to do where meaningful, tangible changes are needed. A nursing Nurses for Idaho!
