What Three Words....

  1. describe you as a nurse?

    I was completely stumped by this one, and I'm not usually at a loss for words.

    Too late for me, but not too late for you to think about it in case you have this question thrown at you in an interview.

    I think that's why I was so tongue-tied. I'm never asked to describe myself and I've never felt comfortable doing so.

    I can describe what I do but not so much who I am.


    And BTW, I'd agree with your words.
