Sara's story: Celebrating nurses

International Nurses Day 2018

Every year on May 12th the International Council of Nurses (ICN) sponsors International Nurses Day to spread awareness about the important role of nurses in improving patient care.  In honor of International Nurses Day we celebrate nurses like Sara, whose training prepared her to save a life.

When Sara's patient began to deteriorate, her simulation-based training was put to the test.

I knew every moment was critical. But I’m amazed at how calm I was. I was the new nurse on the team. And, I’m probably a little shy. But, my simulation training taught me how and when to be assertive for the benefit of the patient and the team. It also taught me how to manage stress. I wasn’t quite satisfied with my first day of simulation, so I asked to go back for more.
