"Being a Nurse..."

"Being a nurse isn't about grades. It's about being who we are. NO book can teach you how to cry with a patient. NO class can tell you how to tell a family that their parents have died, or are dying. NO professor can teach how to find dignity in giving someone a bed bath. A nurse is NOT about the pills, the IVs and the charting.

It's about being able to LOVE people when they are at their WEAKEST moments and being able to forgive them for ALL their wrongs and make a difference in their lives TODAY.

Nobody can make you a nurse...YOU JUST ARE."
