    This great article was circulated in our ER, posted in our breakroom and copied in our bi-weekly newsletter that we get attached to our paystubs. I never tire of reading it. Tonight I did tear up at the part of caring for the critical heart patient. That was me at midnight, not only was she critical, she was the grandmother of a co-worker.

    Thank-you, Thank-you for reconizing us for the sometimes thankless jobs we do. I LOVE being an ER nurse would never do anything else but sometimes a mere thank-you means everything.

    We have this article hanging in our nursing station. It's wonderful to know that all the small (and sometimes not so small) things we do don't go un-noticed.

    I whole heartedly agree. er nurses do have a thankless job sometimes, but as a pediatric er nurse for 10 years when you do get the smile of a child, or a hug it makes it all worthwhile. Children are truly a blessing from God and I enjoy every minute I am blessed with the job I am so forunate to have.

    What a true and well written article. As an ER nurse myself I totally agree 100% about us being a different breed. We have to be to survive. Excellent article.
