Two weeks ago, I co-hosted a segment on the Dr. Oz show with Dr. Oz. Yes, the real Dr. Oz!
I am honored to represent my product partner, USANA Health Sciences, along with Dr. Oz, to sponsor an essay contest awarding the winner a $10,000 scholarship.
The contest is called,
The Future of Nursing
All current nursing students are eligible to apply.
Hilariously, and so fitting for my life, nothing went quite as planned. Lucky for me, mom of 7, I’m used to it! After a surreal experience with hair and makeup experts () I was whisked away and there I was, in the hot seat next to Oz himself.
As I sat next to Oz while he read through the script and
they did light checks etc., I was thinking, “how did I get here?” I
never thought about cohosting a segment on the Dr. Oz show. Not ever.
Not even once. I thought, "Is it karma? Is the universe really listening? Thank you, universe!"
thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you
concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough”
I felt so grateful for the experience and so honored, as a former nurse, to be representing nurses.
Nurses are the unsung heroes of so many important times in our lives.
I’ve learned through great mentors, books, and wisdom:
- Generously paid forward (spread good energy).
- To be clear about the end result (set a clear intention)
- Head in that general direction (allow things to manifest).
- Be grateful when things manifest, don't overlook them when they do, & (most importantly) enjoy the ride!
I am thankful for
- Being clear on where I want to go.
- Having the opportunity to cohost with Dr. Oz
- The honour of representing the amazing nurses of our future.
THE NURSING STUDENTS
Nursing students have a clear end result. They need to finish their
studies and graduate. The intention? To serve others with all they’ve
learned--this is clear.
The essay contest is an opportunity to win a scholarship. Only one nursing student will win but EVERY one of the contestants entering are worthy of it.
Just participating says alot about
- Overcoming fear/doubt.
- Being confident & inspired.
- Recognizing & allowing opportunities such as this contest to manifest.
- Being grateful whatever the outcome may be.
Each contestant has to provide a video of themselves explaining why nursing is important. The stories shared in these videos will bring tears to your eyes. Each applicant telling why becoming a nurse is important to them. The future of nursing lies with men and women committing to getting the education needed to serve others in vulnerable times. All of us will need the care of a nurse some day. Whether it is for us or a parent or loved one. The future of nursing lies in ALL of the nursing students.
Not only in the passing meds but in caring for the whole person, mind, body, and spirit.
|Best of luck to all the amazing students!
Please join me on the Oz show this Friday at 4:00 p.m. CT. See you on then!
|There’s still time to enter! Deadline November 15th|
