i save these when i find them, and i thought it might make a good thread to share nursing poems, stories, prayers, or anything else we've come across.....
i'll start with one of my favorites :d
being a nurse means
you will never be bored
you will always be frustrated
you will be surrounded by challenges.
so much to do and so little time
you will carry immense responsibility
and limited authority.
you will step into people's lives
and you will make a difference.
some will bless you,
some will curse you.
you will see people at their worst
and at their best.
you will never cease to be amazed
at people's capacity for
love, courage, and endurance.
you will experience resounding triumphs
and devastating failures.
you will cry a lot.
you will laugh a lot.
you will know what it is to be human
and to be humane.
