In each newsletter from now until the September 2017 issue, there will be a hidden Mobius strip (the circular symbol as part of the ISPAN logo) for you to find. If you submit all four by October 1, 2017, you will be entered in a drawing to win a copy of the 4th Edition Core Curriculum. Submissions can be sent via email to ISPANews Editor, Kathy Mortl (firstname.lastname@example.org). Good luck!
Most cosmetic clinics, and now almost every medical practice, asks for patient reviews and testimonials. Make sure they're powerful by asking the right questions.
Member Highlight Introduction
Kathleen Mortl, RN, CPSN, CANS
ISPAN has a diverse nursing population with decades of knowledge. From novice to expert, the journey in nursing is vast and has many roads. I would never have thought in 1993, I was an International Board member with dual certifications. I could not have accomplished as much as I have to date if it was not for the greatest peers a nurse could have. ASPSN and ISPAN nurses are supportive and have a wealth of knowledge that they all have shared with me.
Now my new endeavor is school. NP is on the horizon.
I urge each one of you to reach out to a member, ask questions, e-mail a comment to the Newsletter, just reach out.
I would like you to take a few minutes to read Haley's nursing journey in the Member Spot light.
