    Absolutely beautiful <3 I am currently a nursing student, and I have worrying myself to death about becoming attached to patients. After all, most people who decide to dedicate their lives toward caring for others, are mostly "caring" people. I don't know if I will ever have a patient who I don't feel attached to or care for in some way. This post helped me so much by making me accept the fact that caring for and feeling attached toward the people we are trying to help is nothing to be ashamed of. Thank you.

    aw.....(blushing) muchas gracias, mi amigo. that made me smile all over!!

    by the way, i do know my user name isn't exactly grammatically correct, but i thought it was cute, seeing as how i'm over 50 and have found that i really love being an older woman. i get my way so much more often than i used to, and if i want to be a stick-in-the-mud about keeping my traditions, i can do it without catching too much basura from my kids. (there's more to that story, but it's off-topic and not pertinent to this subject anyhow :d.) thank you, thank you for brightening my day!

    This made me tear up. I have been studying my Fundamentals book all day...hunting through websites to complete my care plan and read this. THIS is why I bust my butt studying and why EVERYTHING has been put on the back burner for the next year and half (until I get my degree).

    Thank you for writing such a beautiful piece. It really shows the reason that we all busted our butts in school and hopefully started working in this field.

    Hello. My name is Mikey and I am a RN nursing student. I am almost at the end of my first quarter and as part of my Portfolio assignment, I must interview an RN. I was wondering if you would be interested in helping me?
