  • Treat other women in your organization with respect and it will pay you back 1000 fold. Women tend not to mentor younger women and treat them as if they were competition. Bad move! This is one of the reasons there are few to many women at the top of management. We all know women can be catty and defensive. Do not believe for a moment it is not noticed by the powers that be. Save the 'drama' for dating!

  • Within the classroom as well as in everyday settings, I remind my fellow nurses to listen to that voice in their head.

  • When I was younger, a boss told me, "You cant be everything to everybody" when he saw I was trying to be the perfect wife, mother, supervisor. It made me take a second look at what I was doing to Pamela Bunt myself, and see that some things are okay to let go of. Someone Director of else WILL take care of it.
