On May 12, 2014 I was a motivational speaker for the Texas Nurses Association District 18 Gala. Over 250 Nurses, Nursing students and Nursing Leaders attended the Gala Event. The event took place at the Kipling Education Conference Centre in Lubbock Texas.
At the Gala the Nurses association raised money through a live auction and a silent auction.
They also did a banquet awards ceremony and introduced the newly elected board members.
The Student of the Year award went to Julia Pyle. Dr. Patricia Francis-Johnson won Nurse of the Year.
It was an evening of celebration for a very hardworking, proud group. Nurses work really hard and act as continual advocates for safe patient centered care. I was proud to be a motivational speaker for the Nurses Gala. I presented the Motivational Speech This Would be Funny if it Wasn't Happening to Me! The audience was very warm and engaging.
What was encouraging to me was so many students representatives were present. Their enthusiasm and pride really shows.
