    Right now I love sweet old men. It's great to walk into a room and be greeted as "young lady" instead of "ma'am".

    What I love about Nursing.......
    I am able to help mankind to somehow alleviate their suffering, which is our true purpose here on earth.Is'nt that amazing. We make people happy, We make God happy too.
    Nursing is indespensable.
    We're able to provide TLC, and at the same time ricieved hugs and kisses from appreciative clients.
    I'm able to go places which I only dreamed of before.
    Respected profession.
    A vocation
    A continuing education
    I'm able to apply it anywhere and everywhere,especially to my family and friends.
    Most sought for by patients.
    And these are just a few of the things that I love about nursing.

    Being able to positively contribute to a persons memories during their life events.
    Hearing: "I remember you from my last baby", accompanied by a smile.
    My crazy coworkers (really, its everybody else), and seeing how awesome they were when they became my caregivers.
    Being able to laugh till I 'bout pee my pants, at least once a day.
    Saying at the end of the day: "Well, I did my best."

    Nursing is about everything....It touched my life smoothly as it is...the best word i can describe about my experiences would be AWESOME.... i had fun,there are also sad moments but then again much of learnings gained in my everyday life because it focuses about me as a nurse or should i say my nursing profession...social activities are present!!bonding moments with my co nurses and also with my patients who treat me as their family. My clinical instructors became my second parents when i was still in colllege,they taught me everything,i learned a lot from them....what i am and what i have right now its all because its my calling....and im proud of it...

    Quote from Roy Fokker
    We support, nurture and care for the sick, the wounded, the dying. Age, caste, creed or sex no bar. People at often their worst points in their lives - we work at setting them all right again.

    The awesome responsibility that is ours alone to bear of being the patient advocate.

    Where each day brings forth a new challenge. A new puzzle. A new case - or maybe a familiar old one. Never a dull moment.

    How we are reminded from time to time (sometimes painfully) that despite our best efforts - we are only human and that there is only so much we can do. And that this is not necessarily a bad thing.

    That there is as much love and happiness in this world as there is grief and sadness.


    All this and much more - are the reasons I am proud to be a nurse.

    cheers,


    PS: Besides, how many professions do we say "And let us not meet again anytime soon" as a parting farewell?
    I love your post!!!

    Quote from ranchwife
    I LOVE my little 9 bed hospital....I have worked larger places where you have 7 pts a piece, cna's to do the baths, RT, PT, OT, code teams, IV teams, etc!! Here in the madison valley, WE NURSES ARE IT!!! We are the code team. We are housekeeping. We are the IV team. We are RT!! When you come to work for your 12 hour shift and you and your only other nurse (yes, we staff with 2 on the floor) have 6 patients, all with IV's, 3 with foleys, one chest tube, 4 are TOTAL CARE and one in the croup tent andthe you have a 2 vehicle MVC come in the ER doors, you really learn to work as a TEAM and pull it together!! I cannot imagine doing anything else!!!
    This sounds like a dream job! I have came across a job recently in Kentucky, where they say nurses don't want to be, because it is a small place, but I would have been so happy to go there, I like having responsability just like you describe at your job. Of course, I couldn't get the job, it was a rapid response assignment and someone else got it. Where is Madison Valley?

    Illness/disease/accident is the most stressful thing in a person's and family's life. To be able to make this time easier in even a small way is a joy. I love the constant learning and improving your knowledge and the knowledge of others...the teaching, the variety...and no day is ever alike. Best of all, there is the intense feeling of accomplishment at the end of the day....even on a "bad" day something is learned, something is resolved, a smile made someone life just a little easier.
