It’s Hard To See The Connections & Mechanics That Can Save Us

The lives of nurses and leaders are busy. It’s hard to see the mechanics and connections around us.

The Cogwheel propels on its own when authentic caring happens.  But when Caring Language is part of the environment, nurses and nurse leaders propel the Cogwheel mechanism even more … generating more authenticity, connection, meaning, purpose … All the things that comfort and heal patients and save nurses and nurse leaders.  

This one page document is Authentic Caring in action and illustrates its mechanics and connections.

  • Where does it start?
  • Who needs it?
