I saw this article in my local online newspaper and immediately thought of this site to share it. I am not a nurse but have always been interested in medicine. I have 2 daughters that are nurses and couldn't be more proud. I guess you could call me a lurker here, but I have learned so much just from coming here every night to read the posts. I have a new admiration for all nurses, no matter the specialty. I have been a patient a few times and always try to treat my nurses(s) with respect and not ask them to do anything that is not absolutely necessary, and even then I won't disturb them if I know they are really busy. Ok, I've rambled enough. I just wanted to share this article with you and say Thank You to all the nurses here.
