Transforming impostors into heroes. Metaphors for innovative nursing education

Transforming impostors into heroes. Metaphors for innovative nursing education

Nurse Educator 22(3): 45-50

Nurses negotiating professional transitions, whether they are entering an academic program or assuming a new role in the workplace, often feel like impostors. The metaphor of the hero can serve as an "antidote" to the impostor syndrome. The author describes an educational experience shaped around the impostor and hero metaphors that integrates feminist process with expressive methods to transform nurses' perceptions of themselves from impostors into heroes.
