You may be thinking, "why sista?" - by Jemima Mitchell & Sarah Catling Seyffer

Some of you might be wondering why we are using the word ‘sista’ in this modern world.  Perhaps you think it sounds old-fashioned or maybe even sexist.  Throughout our nursing careers however, the term ‘sista’ has been one of endearment and unification.

Some of you might be wondering why we are using the word ‘sista’ in this modern world.  Perhaps you think it sounds old-fashioned or maybe even sexist.  Throughout our nursing careers however, the term ‘sista’ has been one of endearment and unification.  Whether it be by giving your well-respected colleague a nod as you mumble ‘sista’ under your breath, watching two burly male nurses yell out to each other “sista, can you get me a bedpan?” while they are helping a full-nursing-care patient to have a wash or stating “sista, do you need a hug?” after a challenging day. This term is one we hold dear to our hearts. 

Lots of love to all the sistas reading this.
