    Pondering the emphasis on volunteering. It seems that our institutions are moving more toward taking advantage of that mindset. Nurses want to be involved in practice change and will put hours of research and work into bringing that forward. Institutions celebrate that they allow nurses to innovate – but they are unwilling to budget for the cost of research and best practice. As long as we volunteer, why change that? Clinical, bedside nurses are a crucial part of the conversation and it seems to be more challenging all of the time for us to make the time. This may be a difference between what volunteering means to nurse leaders (volunteer to take an opportunity- still part of their job) and clinical nurses who truly volunteer their time off, outside of the “job description” to conduct research and attend meetings.
