Ask a WOC Nurse
Have you ever wished for someone to talk to who would "get it"? Someone who understands what it's like to be a WOC nurse yet who is not enmeshed in the same work culture you are? Someone to whom you can ask questions you wouldn't feel safe asking your work colleagues? This is the place for you. Submit your questions today!
Your question and answer may be published anonymously in the next issue of In It For You.
