Nurse Practitioner Speaks to United Nations
Veronica Southerland, APRN, FNP-BC, FIEL, DNP(s), recently had the opportunity to show the United Nations exactly why nurses deserve a seat with world leaders.
“We, as nurses, need to understand our worth,” Southerland said. “I don’t know if nurses genuinely understand that. When you understand what our worth is in health equity, it makes a difference. Realizing what it means and moving the pendulum forward for nursing, I think it makes a difference. We add so much more to medicine and nursing as a profession.”
