  9. Nurses Share Your Empowering Scriptures :)
    "For God has not given you a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and a sound mind." As one who flies frequently, I can't tell you how many times this verse has been of great comfort. Since...

  12. enjoying religion without actually being religious yourself?
    I am interested in well in what others believe. I myself believe in Christ as Messiah, and my Savior. For me, it is not a religion, but a relationship, one which I have found throughout the years...

  13. Is this a common attendace policy?
    I honestly think my aforementioned boss was cloned.......or, "we" (not everyone, but the profession as a whole) have become heartless in the face of tragedy. Goodness!

    I am so sorry for your co-worker's loss. How awful that no compassion was shown. When my husband died unexepectedly I had a similar incident.....I was director of a non-direct patient care area. I...

  15. Do you think you have ever encountered an angel?
    Sometimes, we do encounter "angels unaware". However, I believe it is possible to encounter them in a tangible fashion as well. When my eldest was just learning to drive we allowed her to drive...

  18. Is the anti-bully trend going to far?
    Jadelpn---well said. I've been on the receiving end of "let her figure it out for herself", and it was not pretty. Thankfully, the patients were safe. I, on the other hand, felt stupid, and hung...

  20. Today a patient asked, "Do you know Jesus?"
    If you are comfortable with your answer, why do you think you need to revisit it with him? If he brings it up again, be honest with him. If he's been a missionary, he's used to hearing "no" or "not...
