At noon on New Year's Day, the nursing staff of Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital (OLBH) joined other nurses around the world to participate in the "Million Nurse Project." OLBH is just one hospital of many that gather in prayer outside the facility. The project aims to "honor and extend the human caring vibration of nurses into the universal energy field of humanity facilitating healing and health for all."

Jean Watson, PhD., is the leader of the heart-centered meditations and events around the globe. Nurses gather in prayer and meditation because through evidence-based research, it was found that humans meditating or praying on heart-centered feelings radiate an electromagnetic field several feet beyond themselves.

The idea originated when Oprah Winfrey and Eckhart Tolle offered a course on Tolle's book, "A New Earth," and reached more than one million people simultaneously around the world.

Those nurses who were not working on New Year's Day were asked to stop whatever they were doing at noon and pray.
