    Inspiring Stories of Appreciation and Wisdom for Nurses with LeAnn Thieman

    in Moms and Family

    Most nurses didn’t choose their careers because of great hours, pay and working conditions. They entered the profession because of the desire to be of service to others. With a compassionate heart, nurses are a rare breed in the health care industry. 


    Working in health care never gets easier. Staying positive and engaged can be difficult. Yet, nurses show up over and over again, day after day, selflessly nurturing others with their hands and their hearts. 


    Join LeAnn Thieman and me on Tuesday, September 29, 10-11 A.M. CT US, as we discuss her own 30 years of nursing experience and other inspiring stories from Chicken Soup for the Soul: Inspiration for Nurses. 101 Stories of Appreciation and Wisdom.

As a graduate of North Park University and Liberty University, she carries 25 years of experience as a nurse. She began her career working in pediatrics and then began to expand her knowledge with various positions in the nursing field.

She used her passion to provide top quality patient care and motivation to help fellow nurses develop more skills, Emma then began to focus on becoming a nursing career coach.  Although she was able to observe her patient’s health status improve, she gained much appreciation getting the opportunity to witness her fellow nurses improve on their clinical knowledge as well as develop better techniques so that they could become better nurses.
