In the spirit of my article Let’s “Curate” One Another, I decided to celebrate my first Medium anniversary by featuring 12 writers who followed me in my 12th month. The editor of An Idea was kind enough to publish both of these articles.

I aim to feature between 5 and 10 writers who follow me in the previous month as self-published articles. The majority will be those with fewer followers. I’m hoping that other writers will start “curating” each other.

Without frequent confessions, we will never reach that finish line. — The Sacrament of Reconciliation

Is there a middle ground that appeases? — modern day relationships are like globalization

Every life is important, every patient deserves the best care and when a nurse feels like the safety of any patient is compromised, he or she is affected in some way. This is why adequate staffing should be a priority in any hospital. — MY BITTERSWEET EXPERIENCE AS A NEW RN IN A PANDEMIC -PART 2
