FORMIDABLE: Navigating nursing with a moral compass for clarity, discernment, and the courage to be disliked.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Any nurse who works in an arena where the words: “CODE BLUE, ROOM BLAH… CODE BLUE, ROOM BLAH,” are as common as a missed lunch-break, will tell you that going back to the “A-B-Cs”: A – Airway, B – Breathing, C – Circulation, is an antidote to doubt and indecision. Amber Moore brings the same kind of simplicity and clarity to her ‘modus operandi’ as a clinical nurse, nurse manager and educator, by illustrating how to lead with a MORAL COMPASS. She shares how her own moral compass was refined by the wisdom and resilience gained from her life and career experiences.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR 

Amber Moore, BSN, RN, CNOR has a meaty nursing resume. She’s a Certified Perioperative Nurse (CNOR,) and 20+ year veteran of all-things O.R: OR nurse, OR manager, and OR educator.

In addition to her diverse roles in the OR specialty – and her other part-time, 168-hour/week job as a wife and mother – Amber is also a certified EPIC Trainer (noun and adjective forms of the word “EPIC” equally apply,) and Expert Witness.

The consistency and progression of her experience in a singular nursing specialty for 2 decades is certainly impressive, but what makes Amber Moore exceptional – as a nurse, and a human – isn’t itemized on her resume, but it should be the subtitle to her name:

“Lives and Works Through A Moral Compass.”

Amber Moore’s superpower is discernment. She leads and teaches with a foundation of common sense, and embodies a clean-and-clear expression of truth in her professional and personal life.
