Once again, with apologies to J. S. Bach, composer of Cantata no. 140, Sleepers Awake, these are my random thoughts of “Who Will be the First?” among nursology leaders while I was a sleeper awake one very early morning (see our first “sleepers awake” post: What if?). Here are my random “Who will be the first?” musings:
- Who will be the first dean/director/chairperson to re-name the college/school/department/ program nursology?
- Who will be the first Chief [Nursology] Officer to re-name the clinical agency department nursology?
- Who will be the first journal editor to re-name the journal … Nursology or Journal of … Nursology?
- Who will be the first “edge runner” or other nursologist recognized for innovative work to be referred to as a nursologist?
- Who will be the first president or executive officer to re-name the association/academy/ council [Country or State] Nursology Association or [Country] Academy of Nursology or International Council of Nursology?
Again inspired by imagining these possibilities, I asked other Nursology.net management team members!
- Who will be the first newscaster/journalist to refer to nursologists or Nursology In the media?
Margaret Dexheimer Pharris
- Who will be the first political leader to propose a Universal Access to Nursologists system for a country, state/department/region, city, and/or community?
- Who will be the first nursologist to lead peace, social justice, caring, and healing efforts throughout the world toward universal wellbeing/wellbecoming for all of humanity?
Rosemary William Eustace
- Who will be the first nursologist to theorize “task shifting of nursing services and roles” in advancing nursing knowledge and the future of nursing as a profession within other “traditional” and “emerging” disciplines in health care?
- Who will be the first academic dean to say we are advancing the discipline and profession of nursology by preparing nursologists? Nursologists practice nursology through the lens of nursological theory and the multiple patterns of knowing, with a focus on holistic practices such as mindfulness, centering, healing arts, aromatherapy, and coming to know the patient and family as person. The clinical practice sites for nursologists would expand beyond the hospital into healing centers, physician practices, and community centers.
- Who will be the first to graduate with a PhD in Nursology?
We invite all readers of this blog to contribute their own random thoughts–whether generated as a sleeper awake or during another phase of living–of “Who Will be the First?”
