By now you’ve hopefully heard the buzz among the nursing blogosphere and the social media community about Amanda Trujillo, the registered nurse who was fired by Banner Health after educating her patient on hospice options. Banner Health also took action again Ms. Trujillo’s nursing license and she has been unable to practice nursing for the past 10 months.
Nurses everywhere are standing with Amanda Trujillo and coming together and putting their money where their blog is…. or something. The point is, the community is supporting Amanda with more than just their words.
This is about more that one nurse. This is about more than one patient. This is about a culture of healthcare that has to change.
Nurses are fighting so hard to be able to practice to the full extent our license. Educating patients is at the very core of our profession and no nurse should ever feel their job will be threatened when the advocate for their patients and do the right thing.
