A Call to Share Our Stories

As we head into National Nurses Week (May 6-12), this is a good time to be reminded of the importance of sharing our stories as nurses.  Unless we tell our stories, the general public gets their impression of nursing entirely from news and popular media, and as we all know, that is frequently inaccurate.

GLMA is calling for all LGBTQ+ front line health care workers to share our stories (link).  By participating in this, you not only have the opportunity to educate the public on what nurses do but also on the contributions made by the LGBTQ+ community.  Telling our stories is also an important way of acknowledging and processing your own contributions.  If you are currently working the front lines in combatting the COVID-19 pandemic, please consider taking a moment to share your story.
