My Upcoming Trip to Germany

In March I’ll be speaking at a military healthcare conference in Bad Kissingen, Germany. The attendees will be healthcare professionals assigned to the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center (http://www.landstuhl.healthcare.hqusareur.army.mil/) in Landstuhl, Germany. This facility receives all the US military causalities from Iraq and Afghanistan. I am told that the staff is suffering from “compassion fatigue” and needs a motivational shot in the arm. I am honored to have been asked to speak. What is also unique about this facility is that it serves all three branches of the military: Army, Navy, and Air Force. I have requested to visit the hospitalized troops while I’m there and will apparently have an opportunity to do that. What an amazing trip it will be for me and a great opportunity to support our troops – and our fellow nurses. Watch for updates in March.

  1. Hi Donna,
    What an honor!! My son-in-law just got back from a year in Iraq. He has nothing but the highest praise for all of the nurses and healthcare professionals he came in contact with.

    Please recommend http://www.ExceptionalNurse.com to nurses who may be returning with physical or mental disabilities.

    Also, please recommend my new book “Leave No Nurse Behind: Nurses working with disabilities”.

    Thank you for supporting our nurses and troops in this special way.

  2. Hi Donna,

    So glad your son returned home safely. You don’t have to remind me to recommend your book since I do so all the time. For yours and everyone’s information, I will be adding several more pages to nurse-power.com soon. One page will be “Great Books by Nurse Authors” and of course, Leave No Nurse Behind will be featured there. Another page – coming soon – will be “Cool Nursing Web Sites.” http://www.exceptionalnurse.com will be listed there.

    Thanks for all you do!
    Donna
