I’ve talked about the “Do one – see one – teach one” philosophy that’s the backbone of becoming and being a nurse. Nurses do an awesome job at nurturing the younger generation. Of course, we have heard of “nurses eating their young,” but in my experience that misconception is the exception, not the rule.

Unfortunately, this functional trait of ours doesn’t resonate in all aspects of our job. We have somehow adopted the age-old mantra, “Do as I say, not as I do.” “Don’t imitate my behavior, but follow my instructions” is something we not only pass on to the younger generation of nurses, but also the patients we care for.
