Table Talk

MSU News - July 30, 2014 - 12:17pm
Some of the best conversations happen over food. Families reconnect and talk about their days at the dinner table. Friends meet for lunch and catch up on their lives. Coffee is a great way to get to know someone. Romantic dinners are ripe for meaningful connections. There's a reason why so many first dates include a meal. There's something about sitting down at a table that puts people at ease and opens up the lines of communication. I'm a bit of a talker. (Okay, that's actually an understatement...those of you who know me, stop laughing). I love nothing better than a lovely meal and lively conversation. I do love good food, but I'd rather have great company and mediocre food than the other way around. I eat lunch at my desk far too often, so when I go out with my coworkers, it's always a welcome break in the day. No matter where we eat, the best part is always the banter. I work with smart, creative people who always make any meal more interesting. (By the way, do you have a spirit animal? Mine is a meerkat.)

Douglas Olsen: Caring Concern for Others

MSU News - July 30, 2014 - 10:50am
Nursing uses science to enact values, and for me, the core professional value of nursing is caring concern for others. To enact that value to its fullest, nurses need the best science of health and disease, and rigorous ways to judge the degree to which we have maximized the potential of caring concern for others when giving nursing care.
