Good Things About Being a Nurse with a disability

         

                                             
     The American Journal of Nursing published an article called

"10 good things about being an older nurse" written by Alice

Facente, MSN, RN.

Alice lists:

        Older nurses have empathy and death isn't so frightening.

Older nurses are not easily fooled and not bothered by computer

crashes.

       They have x-ray vision and tricks of the trade. In addition, they

collaborate, trust their personal judgment and appreciate the

energy and enthusiasm of new nurses. Older nurses also have a

sense of  humor.

       Since many nurses with disabilities are also "older" nurses,

does this list apply? Or, are there other good things to add to the

list?

      Can you help develop a list of good things about being a

nurse with a disability...at any age?
