Hello everyone! Welcome to Nursing Wit and Wisdom.

My name is Audrey Friedman. I am so pleased to be able to host this site for you!

I love to help nurses find ways to stay excited about their work and understand their unique position to influence others, so they can be inspired about the impact they can make on their patients, families, community and especially each other!

I want nurses to feel excited about their work!  To feel empowered, connected and inspired when they make a difference in another person’s life.

What is the Toxicology Report?

What is the Toxicology Report?

When does an element change from being a remedy to being a poison?  A toxicology report can give you clues. So many herbs, elements, medications and chemicals can be used in advantageous was to help heal, clean, and improve our lives.

What is your ONE THING?

What is your ONE THING?

Nurses are experts at looking at every angle possible. Sometimes it is helpful... But sometimes it can be distracting, overwhelming and put a stop to inspiration and dreams...

Tell me a story about old timepieces and cookies

Dear Nightingales and Friends, How do you teach a medical or nursing concept?   Are you clinically technical? Are you technical in just the right parts or do you sound like a surgical textbook? Do you tell only the good parts or only the bad parts?  Do you tell all the gory details? Are you a storyteller?  Are you a good storyteller?  Do you tell the punch line and don't tell the story?  Or do you just blurt of the facts and then wait for the storm to settle? Does your approach differ if it is...

Wisdom

 Is there a "best" wisdom?  If so, it comes seasoned, like fine wine... given time, experience and reflection.  It sits calmly with an inner strength.  It is fearless and compassionate.  Ideas can be learned in a book, but true wisdom comes from spirit and... always walking in tandem with your soul.  Otherwise, it is only power. 2012 Audrey Friedman

Real Reviews

Hear from the Nightingales!

I have had the pleasure to read quite a few of Audrey’s work, and they have always been enjoyable, as well as educational. Don’t miss out on a chance to read such a witty, informative, educational and memorable journey with insight only a dedicated RN could share with us.

Audrey has a talent (and uses it) for facilitating other’s efforts to find ways to excel – and earn more, potentially. I am a benefactor of this special ability and recommend her most strongly for her innovative, creative approach to mentoring professional practices.
