This manifesto is a desired action outcome of a dedicated inspired commitment of 50+ career path addressing nursing practice, education and research in a number of countries with a variety of different “hats” on my head all in service to the nurses profession growth, impact and leadership worldwide.

Nurses are not from just one nation but multiple nations, countries with varying health, healing and wellness challenges that stretches the mind, imagination, expertise to meet the demands of service. This is done while addressing the need to understand the impact on nurses in their life roles as woman, man, wife, husband, mother, grandmother, grandfather, great grandmother/grandfather, colleagues, friend, confident, motivator, donator of expertise, dedication and service within the community we serve.

The approach to nursing practice and education must be all encompassing to the various obligations nurses have to the self, our families, our friends, our associates, our organizations and life path as a nurse front and center alongside the other parts of who we are.

As a new graduate I adopted the motto: “nursing is, what nurse’s do, what nursing does is what nurses are and become.” And the nurse changes over the course of her / his life journey.

Nursing is not a one size fits all.  It is an integrated path within and without that is shaped by our roots in family, in our community, our heritage, our spiritual multi-dimensional leads that empower us to take charge of our life and work as nurses. We are not a cookie cutter replication of our family, our boss, our peers our mentors, our organizations but rather a unique individual loaded with possibilities that transcend mere ego orientation. We are dedicated professionals who are capable of creating innovations for nursing of the future.

Hence, this manifesto is written to lay a foundation for the nurse of the present, of the future and hero of the past achievements of what our profession has achieved. Yes it is designed through my “inspiration” as I walked this path in becoming a nurse practitioner, educator and researcher.

The resources in this document are taken from public documents handed out at ICN as well as available from other sources. They do not represent an endorsement from those organizations rather they represent the communication link between professionals dedicated to evolve the profession of nursing and be resources for each person who read this material to engage themselves to ascertain what is right for them in the evolution of their nursing career path.

My goal is / was to offer resources to empower and do not in any way imply I am approved by those organizations to represent them. We grow through knowledge that inspires to action. Nurses are not handmaidens of another profession or an organization. We are empowered individuals dedicated to serve others using our skill set.

Nurses were the “handmaidens of the MD”, but no more. Rather nurses are ”heart held handmakers” (HHH)  of the future of health care.

HHH is based on a heart 2 heart, divinely inspired nurse who is filled with light and love energy that guides my way to innovative practices, education and research. The three goals represent the golden triangle of universal force field of energy to blasé through to new possibilities and innovations and are the roots supporting my path forward that may help others on their path forward in nursing as well.

Arduino is an open-source platform used for building electronics projects. It consists of both a physical programmable circuit board and a software development environment. The Arduino programming language is based on C/C++ and is easy to learn for beginners, yet flexible enough for advanced users. The language is used to write sketches, which are programs that run on the Arduino board. The course on Arduino Programming covers the following topics: sketch structure and flow, variables, arithmetic and relational operators, loops, conditional statements, functions, arrays, and more. The course is interactive and includes lots of exercises and practice. It is also hands-on, with implementation in a live-lab environment. The course customization options include different models of Arduino and support for different programming interfaces and IDEs. By the end of the course, participants will be able to program Arduino to control lights, motors, and other devices, understand Arduino’s architecture, add third-party components to extend Arduino’s functionality, and test, debug, and deploy the Arduino to solve real-world problems. The course is suitable for hobbyists, students, and professionals who want to create interactive projects.

The Effective Time Management for Professionals course is designed to help participants learn strategies to manage their time more efficiently and effectively. The course covers various aspects of time management, including workspace arrangements, task management, and time prioritization, enabling learners to strike a balance between daily responsibilities and long-term goals. The course emphasizes the crucial role of organization and introduces techniques such as the Eisenhower Matrix and batch processing to streamline workload management. Time management techniques like time blocking and the Pomodoro Technique are also explored to help participants optimize their efforts and concentrate as much of their time and energy as possible on high payoff tasks. The course is interactive and includes lots of exercises and practice. It is also hands-on, with implementation in a live-lab environment. By the end of the course, participants will be able to prioritize work based on urgency and importance, organize time efficiently, reduce distractions, foster a conducive work environment, and apply strategies for effective data organization, reducing search time and supporting better decision-making. The course is suitable for professionals who want to enhance their productivity and time management skills.

This course mentors you in skills for success that are taught in top universities and expected of engineers in international workforce settings in today’s global market for career advancement.

You will learn through case-studies, practical experience and you will learn by being personally mentored in career skills for success in the practice of engineering. These skills can give you a proactive edge in competing and collaborating in a global engineering workforce.

Even if your work is local, your engineering practices are impacted by forces that are global – international economics, social policies, geopolitical conflicts, cultural values and geographic/climate dynamics all have influence on your salary, career success and ability to grow and thrive as an engineer.

This course gives you skills for agility and success in dealing with these forces. It does so by inviting you to learn practical mastery of competencies that are highly valued by international companies. These competencies are transferrable to any workplace and allow you to succeed in competitive engineering workplace environments.

These competencies include:

  • Observation
  • Data Gathering Across Disciplines and in Collaboration to Enhance Teaming Success
  • Data Analysis – to strengthen design and problem solving and to communicate to non- technical audiences
  • Applied Data Analysis within a Real-World Problem
  • Communication across disciplines and modalities
  • Synthesis of technical adaptations with human usage of engineered environments and solutions
  • Innovation and Collaboration
  • Professional Development with Mastery to Become a Supervising Professional
  • Professional Development with Mastery to Expand Contacts and Career Horizons
