oa Professional Nursing Today - Nursing - the tipping point is at hand : editorial



Although I have never wanted to be a rock star, or even an actor with moderate fame, I got a taste of it. How so? Well, it was my privilege to be invited to deliver a paper at the recent International Council of Nurses 25th Quadrennial Congress in Durban. Wow, the hall was huge and it seemed to be more suited to a rock concert than an august meeting of nurses. Luckily my topic was a professional passion - hypertension and its management by nurses - so I didn't feel too nervous. Once I was given an antidote to speakers nerves, just imagine all your audience is naked and you are the only one with clothes on. Unsurprisingly, I have never found that very helpful because I convulse in fits of laughter and can't speak at all. Well quite frankly, the thought of a thousand or more naked nurses was way more than I could deal with!
