Calling all AANLCP Ambassadors!

Calling all AANLCP Ambassadors!

I recently was asked why I joined AANLCP and I realized it was because I found my home among like-minded, educated, mature nurses who have a passion for lifelong learning and for providing the best outcomes to the ill and injured population.    I glow when I tell others about the field of nurse life care planning and about our incredible membership.  This got me thinking about ambassadorship, I call it connecting others.

What is an ambassador?  According to the dictionary, an ambassador is 1) an official envoy; especially:  a diplomatic agent of the highest rank accredited to a foreign government or sovereign as the resident representative of his or her own government or sovereign or appointed for a special and often temporary diplomatic assignment and/or 2) a:  an authorized representative or messenger b:  an unofficial representative (traveling abroad as ambassadors of goodwill).  I propose that as members of AANLCP, we ALL are authorized representatives of our organization; thus we all are AANLCP ambassadors!

How do we demonstrate that we are ambassadors for AANLCP?  When you attend professional meetings and seminars:

  • Use social media to let others know about how that activity/topic is important to AANLCP
  • Promote AANLCP as your professional organizational home as you talk with other nurses.
  • Invite vendors to work with AANLCP to provide their product or service to other nurse life care planners
