"Inspiring those who inspire others! That's the FGCU EFECT." Recently I was inspired by a man that I looked up to as a model citizen and a true example of what it means to be a man. His name is Ernie Mitchell. He was a funny inspirational war veteran who worked to fix up the air force fighters that would help keep this a free country. He also set an example when it came to being religious. He always showed up to church and he would often joke with other people there.
He was a man of faith who lost his arm at the age of 16 but that didn't stop him at all. He continued with life and turned his situation into one that would put a smile on everyones face as he joked. Once about a tiger having eaten his arm! 🐅🐯 I'll never forget him for sure. However, today we have a problem. Army veterans and senior citizens need our help. So how can we help?
With FGCU's nursing program and all of the nursing homes here in Southwest Florida, I would love to combine both resourses in a collaboration that would not only bring smiles to the elderly but army veterans as well (we have so many). If we work together, not only will FGCU nursing students receive hands on experience with real people but they will also impact those same people who have worked for this amazing country, who have dedicated their lives for a better American future and finally have fought face to face with our past enemies in battle.
Together we can inspire the elderly and senior war veterans who inspire us to make America the greatest country in the world! 🇺🇸💯

Home. Tired. After 38 hours at the hospital I came home to the miracle of my home, my roof, water and electricity. One look in our back yard reminded me the power that was here hours ago. Kids and my Dustin will be home from Ft Meyers tomorrow. Overwhelmed. Humbled. #hurricanematthew#floridanurses#godiswithus#20milemiracle
Reality check. My shift has ended. I'm no longer distracted by normal tasks. I made up my cot. This is my Grandmother Alice's quilt. I almost didn't bring it, but without Dustin, it is the only thing that brings me comfort. Really, it's not any safer at my house than here. Brigit gave me her dolphin to snuggle, and when Joe forgot his fox, I couldn't leave it behind. Time to strengthen myself in prayer and distract myself with comradery. #hurricanemathew#icurn#rnlife#floridanurses
