Excerpt

I'VE BEEN A NURSE for more than 20 years and have worked with some truly gifted professionals. I regularly see seasoned nurses use their clinical knowledge to save rapidly deteriorating patients, their communication skills to deescalate a volatile situation, and their compassion to help ease the agony of loss.
Though many nurses are comfortable with their clinical expertise, many find sharing this knowledge in professional circles overwhelming. However, sharing clinical knowledge is essential to advancing our profession and producing the best patient outcomes. So, whatever field you work in, keep an eye out for experienced nurses with strong writing skills, and encourage them to publish.
