Today is a Great Day, a Day That Will Be Remembered!
Today, I bring comedy nursing to LinkedIn.
I do so for three reasons:
1) Nurses and patients desperately need more and higher quality humor as a survival skill and clinical tool.
2) LinkedIn could also use rather more of the good stuff. Laughter is a universal human good that builds social bonds, trust, good will, coöperation, health, creativity, energy, motivation, initiative, courage, hope, productivity, problem-solving, and joy. It’s also a known alternative to insanity – ask Jimmy Buffet! Otherwise it offers nothing of any practical use. Still, think about it, especially all you good folks out there who think you’re “too busy” to “waste time” on humor. Too busy to reach your full potential and waste your precious time thriving? Really?
3) Given that LinkedIn is so gosh darned serious and practical, I find this project inherently amusing. Humor and innovation are both highly esteemed within my – our – new LinkedIn group, Comedy Nurse Specialists.
Therefore, I warmly invite you to join us and enjoy. How often does a ground floor opportunity come along? How does THIS kind of ground floor opportunity come along? (Answer: “not often”. The answer is, “not often”) There’s plenty of room on stage, so to speak (for now!), and plenty of room in the audience as well. It’s all good.
Why build another regrets? Give it a try:
Come on Down, and Keep On Playing!
(P.S.: there’s an outside chance that “Comedy Nurse Specialist ” might become a recognized nursing specialty someday with its own professional organization, maybe even a Doctorate of Nurse Comedy. Picture a world served by Comedy Docs! Doesn’t it sound like a better future?
It could happen! It’s certainly a refreshing vision, in any case.)
(P.P.S: Yeah, House et al are docs, not nurses. Who cares? Humor grows with sharing, and they did it just as bad as we do. All people do, right?)
