Barbara talks with us about how her early exposure to news, policy, and activism shaped her career interests, the power of storytelling, incorporating personal interests into nursing care, her work with Project Kesher, and how nurses can make their voices heard.
Barbara is the type of nurse who is comfortable pioneering new forefronts in nursing. She decided to create a documentary on nursing in the 1980s, which spurred her love of media, broadcasting and radio. She is a fierce advocate of nurses and allowing them to shine in the media. As Barbara says, the stories of nurses move us forward and elevate the profession. Journalists who use nurses as sources say their news pieces are better, more interesting and more comprehensive.
