Become an Advocate
By 2020, the US will face a shortage of 800,000 nurses.
If you’re interested in spreading the word about the shortage, and the rewarding career that is nursing, you can get involved with the Nurses Who Make a Difference program. This program was designed to help nurses speak to elementary, high school and college students, community center members, and more.
To join, send us an email with your name, job title (RN, LPN, etc.), mailing address, and scrub top size to email@example.com. We’ll send you a package that includes a presentation kit, a scrub top to wear during presentations, and all kinds of other Campaign materials.
Please note: This program is only open to nurses. Right now, we have only large and extra-large size scrub tops available, but we’ll be receiving smaller sizes soon.
Be a Mentor
Becoming a mentor for students and new nurses is another great way to be an advocate for nursing. At NursingLink, you can answer students’ questions and participate in online forums.
