If I could have one superpower, I would choose Empathic Power Randomization: the ability to gain random powers based on one’s emotions. Emotions are such a powerful part of who we are, and I think being able to express them in tangible superpower ways would be awesome.

If I could have one superpower, it would be Power Bestowal: the ability to bestow powers or jump-start latent powers. I choose this superpower because nurturing people’s gifts and hidden potential creates a constellation of magic that expands far beyond what can be reached by an individual.

I turned to my trusted universe of Harry Potter for an answer. Apparition (the power to disappear and reappear in a different place instantly) would significantly cut down on time to be where we are most needed in the most timely fashion – a truly useful power in our line of work.

Kristen Adelman, BSN, RN, CHPPN

Team Lead

If I could choose a superpower, I would choose Infinite Energy and the ability to transmit that energy to others. If my energy were limitless, I would never become tired or depleted, and I could share that with anyone I encountered – especially caregivers.

My superpower would be Benevolent Materialization. At any moment, in any place, I could make anything manifest – whether an idea, a meal, or an inner song! If it is for the good of the person in my presence, I could make it appear.

If I could have a superpower, I would choose Realm-Walking, the ability to easefully travel to (and fully adapt to) any realm or dimension in creation. There is such an abundance of mystery, and I would like to be able to explore it without restraint and bring back some of that magic and wonder to this place where we are.

Emily Parker, BSN, RN, CPN

Medical Support Specialist

There are many superpowers that I would love to possess, and they all bring with them advantages, but I decided on the superpower of Omni-Lingualism. With this superpower, I could instantly learn, speak, and understand any language fluently. If I had this power, I could communicate with any family regardless of where they are from or what language they speak. Until I acquire this superpower, I will continue to use interpreters.

I would choose the superpower Translate Animal Communications because animals amaze me, and humans have much to learn from other animals.

John Bailey, MSW, LCSWA

Shelly Wenzel, RN, CHPN, CHPPN

I would choose “Elasta-Girl Powers,” because they would allow me to be super flexible in any situation. They would also allow me to shapeshift.

If I had to choose a superpower, it would be Chrono-Kinesis, to have the capability to alter time. This superpower can also comprise of manipulating the space-time continuum, allowing for teleportation. At a moment’s notice, I could spend time with family and friends around the world, along with historical figures throughout time. I would like to go from telling time to telling time what to do! My superhero name: Time-Turner.

Allie Lindahl, MS, BSN, RN, CPN

My superpower would be Mind Reading – I could help people address concerns they didn’t know how to bring up, and I could break up my kids’ arguments before they even start!

If I could have one superpower, it would be Multi-Location. As the mom of three young kids who is attempting to work from home, it would be amazing to be able to devote my full attention to one task at a time as opposed to doing three to four at a time!

Liz Fernadez

Elizabeth Fernandez, RN, BSN

On-Call Nurse

If I could have any superpower, I would choose to be able to Fly – so I could go wherever I want and get there fast!

Zach Carleton

I’d go with…the ability understand and speak any language fluently – Omni-Lingualism – because it would make traveling a breeze!
