Lauren Lodico, NSNA President, Winter-Spring Memo
Happy New Year colleagues and NSNA members! I hope that during our winter break you were able to spend time with family, take some time for yourself, and relax!
Can you believe we have made it through another year in nursing school? It is an amazing accomplishment and something that you should be so proud of yourselves for. It is not an easy accomplishment to earn and through our dedication to this profession and association, our perseverance and resilience shines through. So, I hope this winter break you were able to give yourself a pat on the back and get a much-needed break from nursing school. Like most of our mentors tell us, we are the future. And it is up to us to show the future nursing students to come how to properly care for ourselves AND our patients—not just our patients.
I would like to extend a big congratulations to the graduating class of winter 2023! You finally did it! Add those letters to your name, turn your tassel, and celebrate with the ones you love because you have earned it! It is no small feat to add those letters of RN to your last name and show the world that you made what was seemingly impossible possible. I hope that you take on with you the lessons, connections, and friendships that you have made with NSNA. Remember that nursing is a lifelong educational journey that can take you many places if you have the courage to pursue those opportunities.
For those still cracking open textbooks, pulling long hours studying, and dreaming of those two letters after our last names, keep going! Wherever you are in your nursing journey, remember that you can achieve anything you set your mind too, regardless of what any other person says you can or cannot do.
