    Every nurse,whether they have a story at home or not, I am sure they will have a nursing story, which is a special gift to nurses to relish those memories. Because we deal with humans and not machines!
    Congratulations for having written this article,you have inspired me to write one more from my side!

I have learned that it is okay to cry because you are frustrated. Just make sure that you are alone when you do it. It is also okay to cry with a patient and their family. [quote]

    May I include your thoughts in our NSNA newsletter at school?
