Circumstance took me from the classroom to the bedside for a few 12-hour night shifts during the height of the pandemic. Seeing the burnout first-hand was both distressing and motivating.

I’m a vehement nursing advocate for accessible care for inmates. Why? Because I don’t think anyone should be excluded from end-of-life care, especially those in the shadows of society.

As expected, the first six months of my career were filled with mishaps and unplanned learning experiences, but through all the challenges, I found these six things to be true.

Learn how volunteer experiences have led to more for Eric B. Bauman.
 
Volunteer Experience:
Coming from a long line of academics and clinicians, Eric B. Bauman has been surrounded by a support system that taught him the importance of lifelong learning. But other people’s belief in him was what led him to his current volunteer position as a grants and abstracts reviewer for Sigma.
 
Eric enjoys this unique opportunity because it allows him to help others grow and achieve their academic goals. Through his experience, he has also learned how to be a better academic writer himself. He has found that learning to review is both summative and formative, which takes time and a certain level of professional maturity. “By engaging in processes that promote others’ development in terms of research and academics, you are moving the needle for the entire profession and cementing important roles for nurses in an ever-increasing interprofessional health professions ecosystem at the bedside, research and leadership positions, the policy table, and beyond.”
 

His volunteer experience has also allowed him to explore other opportunities with Sigma as he has contributed to three Sigma publications, two of which were textbooks; currently serves as a member of the Beta Eta at-Large Chapter Scholarship Review Committee; and has had the chance to present at a Sigma conference with a graduate student he was mentoring. For Eric, one of the real joys of his time in nursing has been seeing mentees and students become successful in their own careers.
