Adventure with Gratification
Today at work we had a poster session event honoring our first group of DNPs who will soon be graduating. DNP means Doctor of Nurse Practice, but the speaker said DNP really means Do Not Provoke! My first advisee did a great project bring health education about diabetes to Hispanic migrant workers. I'm just so very proud of her work. She told me the greatest thing. Early in the program she was trying to decide between two projects. I wasn't at all crazy about the second option, but hey! it's her project. I told her to follow her passion because it would be so much work and she really needed to care about the project and its outcomes. Today she told me that was exactly the right advice!
