- Jan 21 by RaewynvQuote from brittneHearing comments like this also drives me to finish nursing school. Hearing stories like these show me that there are compassionate nurses out there that really do care about what they do.Nurses like you make my drive to finish school and get into the field all the more. I know nursing is hard, but to have moments like these when you can reassure a patient or their family in their most vulnerable times just makes it all worth while. Thank you for the tears this morning, it was a heart moving story and a reminder to me that this is the type of nurse I want to become.

- Jan 23 by HospiceNurseRNI work in a hospice inpatient facility. Many of our nurses are previous L&D nurses. I think the common bond is we know how 'fragile' the family unit is when faced with life, the beginning or the ending. It is a family experience where everyones feelings and memories they will carry for a lifetime need a loving supporting prescence. The families will not remember our names, but they will remember the love and support they felt during these life changing events. I do not remember the nurses name with my first delivery at 18, but I still remember her love and compassion, her calming prescence in my caos of fear. I not not remember the nurses name when my second child was in ICU, but I remember his compassion for not only my son, but for my husband and I. We do make a difference even when it causes us pain. I am sure God is pleased for all the nurses that offer not only 'nursing' care, but also advocate for families emotions when they are in so very fragile. You sound like a loving nurse and I am glad you were there.
- Jan 24 by annette1Thank you so much for being so kind and caring towards that Mother! You don't know how much that meant to her!! I am a nurse too, but two years ago I had a little girl and she ended up dying from NEC. I brought her into the world and then 11 days later I had to take my little baby off of a ventilator. It was the most horrible thing I've ever had to do/go through. What I remember the most (and I remember everything) is the kindness from the wonderful nurses that were around the NICU that my daughter was in. So I know that Mom is very greatful for what you have done for her/them! Thank you for being such an amazing nurse! (((HUGS)))
