We were just thinking of the different types of members we have and what motivates them to do what they do. We have retired nurses, veteran nurses, first-time nurses, nursing students, those who are interested in 'nursing',... Read More

    If
    If you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;

    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
    Or, being hated, don't give way to hating,
    And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

    If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
    If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
    If you can meet with triumph and disaster
    And treat those two imposters just the same

    If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
    Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
    And stoop and build 'em up with wornout tools;


    If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
    And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breath a word about your loss;

    If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,
    And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on";


    If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
    Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch;
    If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
    If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
    Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
    And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son!

    this is not actually a quote but it was the shirt design of our nursing batch and it never fails to move me...

    GOD, my family and the people whom im going to help keeps me motivated.


    Quotes that keep me motivated!

    studying for NCLEX:
    "Most of all, our way is a way of sacrifice and bearing pain in order to relieve the pain of others. When you study now,when you want to stop and rest,do not rest. Each moment of pain you experience is consciously undertaken in an attempt to improve oneself so you are skilled to take care of others.When you take on this pain,you are helping to dispel the suffering of the world" -Dr.Conrad Fischer



    my motto and Bible verses in life:

    "if others can do,why cant i?"

    “remember that any suffering you may encounter along life’s way is only temporary and in some way,may be the cause of future happiness”

    “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” – Philippians 4:13

    “For I know the plans I have for you,declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you,plans to give you hope and a future” –Jeremiah 29:11

    “Be strong,don’t be afraid,don’t be discourage, the Lord is with you” -2Chronicles 20:15

    "if you have love and honesty in your heart, you got it all" -J.

    I personally think the motivational posters & sayings are stupid. Except for the "Demotivators". Those I like, especially "Mistakes - It could be the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others" & "Consulting - If you're not part of the solution, there's good money to be made in prolonging the problem"

    Am I cynical? Perhaps. Pragmatic? Yep. High self-esteem? Yep.

    One of my favorite is a Cherokee Indian saying....

    When you were born, the world rejoiced and you cried. Live your life so that when you die the world cries and you rejoice.

    Quote from simonemyheart
    Praying that I can leave bedside nursing as soon as possible. I hate it, it's depressing, it make me want to crawl up in a bed and die.

    I cry on my way to work, at work, and leaving work.

    I am motived by the Lord and pray for His strength everyday.
    I am so sorry you are going through this, and I totally get it... I felt the same way. I thought I had made the worst mistake of my life by becoming a nurse. Luckily, I was able to move to a specialty area that I love. I started in Home Health and it was like the clouds parted for me, I've been doing this for 12 years and never looked back. You should look around at other opportunities, there are so many things you can do as a nurse that one of them is bound to be just the thing for you. Good luck.
