It was June 18, 2022, when I humbly accepted the role of being PNASD President for the year 2022-2024. Thank you PNASD for the trust and confidence, and the opportunity to serve. The one thing that continue to inspire me about PNASD is the commitment, dedication, and passion of its leaders. With such strong leaders around me, along with the hard working newly elected officers and Board of Director. I am confident that we will make PNASD SPARK.
We hope to continue the legacy that our founding leaders started, spearheaded by President Femi Ramirez in July 1974 at Paradise Valley Hospital.
As I look forward, it is important to look back at what nurses have been through over the past two years. We are in a new phase of the pandemic. Behind the masks, there is still pain and suffering. Many of our nurse's face anxiety, feelings of isolation, and mental health issues. We always take a sense of responsibility for the work that we do and sometimes compromise our self-care. With this in mind, this is an opportunity for PNASD to engage members, attract new members and make an impact. But we must do so with empathy. Oprah Winfrey said it best: "Leadership is about empathy; it is about having the ability to relate to and connect with people to inspire and empower their lives." It is my hope that this concept can be modeled with PNASD. Thus, for my mantra I chose "Leading with Empathy, PNASD C.A.R.E.S" meaning Compassion, Authenticity, Respect, Equality and Service.
