Am not just a nurse
This article is dedicated to all global nurses,for their tremendous activities in caring for the sick and rehabilitate them if the need arises.
Am not just a nurse by profession
Have been trained to make it my nature
With my meekly tender on motion
Blissfully showing the sick my affections
Irrespective of their conditions
A vow I pledged during my induction
I am not just a nurse but a saviour
A reliever of all souls
Medically putting sickness behind the door
My scapel,an instrument of pure
Pills, scissors, and more
Tape measure, all is pure
I am a nurse and a mentor
An ever conscious health visitor
In and out of the ward I ensure
In spite patient's aren't sure
Your health care,my venture
Health education, is my chore
I am a nurse,yet an health inspector
Working diligently with the doctors
Not like a servant to his Monsieur
But a co worker working hand in hand
To make you back on your feet
Is a must,not an option
Consolidate and palpation
Till you are back to rehabilitation
I am a nurse, that's my call
A job I do with all my all
With gentle joy throughout my course
Telling everyone across the world
Showing it big on my wall
Am a nurse among all
I am a nurse, your humble servant
Always at your service with all my might
In the morning, day or night
Whenever you seem not alright
I bring your health back alright
Cheers!it's your right!
I am a nurse your caring friend
Comforting you since all then
Through your ailment, injury and pain
I encourage, persuade and mend
Even when relatives turn you down
I am ,but always there!
I am a nurse, that's my habit
Always euphoria to be on feet
My white apron is my envious suit
Looking good while it fit in
I am much proud of my responsibility
Oh,God remain ability
Nursing is a globally recognized profession!
I am a proud nurse, gladly overworked
And still underappreciated ,mostly motivated
While standing to seek motivation.
I am the determination and hope for the years to
I may be small, but I build a giant in me.
I soar through societal beliefs
And move through people's prejudice
I am a hero to one, a conditioning to another
Yet, no sector stands without me.
I am fearless and dedicated
For liberation and inspiration
I render lots of determination,
Power to care and stories to share..
Don't test me, am building the eagle in me
Think of it, imagine what nursing will be in the next
Ask yourself, what can I do to restructure nursing
and make it reach its climax?
Remember we are not just hearers but doers,
Don't let us be policy abiders, but policy makers
Let us make this profession stand out among its
This is the time to stand up and give nursing its
credibility and take it to the climax because
without nursing, the health sector will be no where
to be found in the society.. .
Be delighted in your words and actions as you
render the holistic care putting Human Rights into
consideration by being fair, show dignity, respect,
allow autonomy and equality to patients
irrespective of their status, gender,tribe,religion
For this profession to move forward, capable
leaders are needed to strengthen its
professionalism and re-brand its image...
Let us soar together as one and give nursing its
We have been our patients advocates in our interest
with doctors and administrations, why not with
Congress? Who better to speak to policy makers on
behalf of nurses than nurses?who has a better
understanding of what nurses do than nurses?Who
is In the best position to address the health
concerns of our patients than nurses?If not
nurses,whom!?if not now, when?
This is the time to speak and to be heard ,to hold
elective offices,more nurses are needed in the
Parliament no one else in the health profession
can speak with the voice that we have!
