Another key element to our success: Bring candy to nurses. Not only do you make nurses happy because they get candy, but you're also showing that you understand their culture and are at least a little bit willing to move yourself closer to it.

Just make sure you don't buy only "granny candy". As project managers and senior nurse educators, we tend to be closer to the end of our career than to the beginning. Don't forget that a significant number of nurses nowadays carry iPhones and have a huge number of friends on Facebook.
