“We must ensure as part of their identity [nurses] see themselves as caregivers, as problem solvers, and as innovators.”
Margo Brooks Carthon
“When nurses are [there] that’s where I think we have the opportunity to innovate for dignity, for inclusion, for belonging, for fairness, for equity.”
“It’s up to us to start educating the next future of nurse innovators and to educate and train the nurses who are working at the bedside and out in the community today.”
“Whatever ideas that you have to come up with a new approach or new solutions or the continued problem that you seem to see over and over and over again… [ask] how could it be approached differently. And that to me is what innovation is all about.”
“That somebody should be you. If you've identified a problem, why wait for somebody else to come up with the solution?”
