Nurses Share Their New Year’s Resolutions for 2020

 In Nurses Weekly

New year’s resolution? East Tennessee-based registered nurse John Mayer doesn’t do that, admitting he’s too focused on “making it through the day I’m in.” While that’s one valid approach, some nurses do set goals for the new year and are willing to share them. Some of these resolutions are brief and very specific, others literally involve entire public awareness campaigns. All are inspiring (as is managing to get through one day at a time).

Here is a sampling of nurse New Year’s resolutions for 2020:

Roxanna Chicas, registered nurse and nursing doctoral candidate at Emory University’s Nell Hodgson Woodruff School: “My new year’s resolution is to fight climate change by reducing my plastic use, recycle more and switching to all-natural cleaning products.”

Delaney McCann, former ICU nurse and current certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA) student: “First, I resolve to survive my first year of CRNA school! And also, journal and/or meditate every day and learn guitar.”
