Magnify Your Voice — Use Storytelling to Advance Nursing

Supported by: Capella University

The ANA Enterprise would like to thank Capella University for its sponsorship and CeraVe for a grant to the American Nurses Foundation in support of this webinar.

MAY 20, 2020 @ 1:00 P.M. (ET) — FREE

The World Health Organization declared 2020 as the Year of the Nurse. While the global pandemic quickly shifted our focus, this health crisis helped magnify the impact and value of nurses. This is why the stories you and your colleagues share about your work, particularly during this pandemic, will shape your history and ours. Join Carolyn Jones, noted master storyteller and photographic ethnographer, as she celebrates nurses and discusses techniques on how to share your story. During this 60-minute webinar, you will discover how to construct a narrative that:

  • Communicates the motivations that led you to become and stay a nurse
  • Connects the impact and value your nursing practice has on your patients, colleagues, and community
  • Shares how you overcome the challenges nurses face everyday

You can use these techniques in a variety of settings from explaining the contributions of your work as a nurse to government officials, your community, or sharing with a friend as part of the healing process.

When more of us tell our stories, we work together to raise the awareness and value of nurses everywhere. You make a difference!

Key learning outcomes:

  • Constructing your nurse story
  • Sharing your story
