Act Stop Lamenting
I hear many Nurses, if not all nurses complaining about the image of Nursing
If all then who is responsible for the poor image
The followers blame the leaders the leaders blame the followers
Everyone blames everyone and none blames himself
We all are sons and daughters of lamentation
- We see fault everywhere and in everything
Nursing is not progressing, nursing is not progressing we all cry

Yet over the past two decades, there is increase in the number of degree awarding institutions
More and more Nurses have earned the so called elusive degree and even added degrees to it
Some have become Professors
We have more and more Nurses who have never being to a Hospital based Schools of Nursing
Yet, lament we still do
We always see the grass greener from the other side of the fence
We admire everything that is not Nursing and denounce everything Nursing.
We are quick to praise other professions and quick to voice our regrets for being Nurses
Yet Nursing has always been there for us
It is time to act
It is time to stop the blame
It is time for you and i to say i am the change agent of Nursing in Nigeria
It is time to lift up Nigerian Nursing
It is time to voice out
It is time to help the nurse next to you to do right
It is time for us to project the positive and work on correcting the negative
It is time to stop the bickering and selfish in house fight
It is time for leaders to carry the followers along
It is time for the followers to lift up the leaders to an enviable height in the comity of professional associations.
Together we can make, but each must consciously make up his mind to be the best Nurse.
If every one acts, then all of us have acted, and NURSING will be better.
