A review of the literature (Part 1 in this series) revealed the power and pitfalls of being female and being a healer. A qualitative study of medical-surgical nurses (Part 2) gave a glimpse of the satisfaction, frustration, and confusion nurses experience as healers. In particular, participants did not engage in regular self-care behaviors and did not articulate ways to create healing environments that would support nurses as well as patients. In this third and final article, implications and recommendations beyond the study will be shared. Education, clinical practice, leadership, and research are aspects of professional nursing that may benefit from these interpretations.
