I am sorry. I am one of those people that usually gives those kind of comments.
It is just really neat I do admire many of all of the nurses here and reading this website has really inspired me to go to nursing school
myself. I know you care if you are on this forum and a good nurse always cares.
I do not think people would tell you that if you were not such a good nurse. so, if people give you compliments you should smile and accept them with pride because you are good at what you do. (otherwise they would not have said it...people do not have to say anything.)
I would be proud of your profession it is a very unselffish profession. The people that do give these comments do truly admire you they are not trying to affend you or make you feel like an imposter. I can tell you I am truly one of them. I admire many nurses. I am totally inspired as i said by some of the things that are talked about on here.
There are so many great nurses. I totally love this website!
