Am not just a nurse

Am not just a nurse by profession

Have been trained to make it my nature

With my meekly tender on motion

Blissfully showing the sick my affections

Irrespective of their conditions

A vow I pledged during my induction

I am not just a nurse but a savior

A reliever of all souls

Medically putting sickness behind the door

My scalpel, an instrument of pure

Pills, scissors, and more

Tape measure, all is pure

I am a nurse and a mentor

An ever conscious health visitor

In and out of the ward I ensure

In spite patient's aren't sure

Your health care, my venture

Health education, is my chore

I am a nurse, yet an health inspector

Working diligently with the doctors

Not like a servant to his Monsieur

But a co worker working hand in hand

To make you back on your feet

Is a must, not an option

Consolidate and palpation

Till you are back to rehabilitation

I am a nurse, that's my call

A job I do with all my all

With gentle joy throughout my course

Telling everyone across the world

Showing it big on my wall

Am a nurse among all

I am a nurse, your humble servant

Always at your service with all my might

In the morning, day or night

Whenever you seem not alright

I bring your health back alright

Cheers! It's your right!

I am a nurse your caring friend

Comforting you since all then

Through your ailment, injury and pain

I encourage, persuade and mend

Even when relatives turn you down

I am, but always there!

I am a nurse, that's my habit

Always euphoria to be on feet

My white apron is my envious suit

Looking good while it fit in

I am much proud of my responsibility

Oh, God remain ability

Nursing is a globally recognized profession!

I am a proud nurse, gladly overworked

And still underappreciated, mostly motivated

While standing to seek motivation.

I am the determination and hope for the years to come

I may be small, but I build a giant in me.

I soar through societal beliefs

And move through people's prejudice

I am a hero to one, a conditioning to another

Yet, no sector stands without me.

I am fearless and dedicated

For liberation and inspiration

I render lots of determination,

Power to care and stories to share.

Don't test me, am building the eagle in me.

Think of it, imagine what nursing will be in the next ten years! Ask yourself, what can I do to restructure nursing and make it reach its climax? Remember we are not just hearers but doers. Don't let us be policy abiders, but policy makers. Let us make this profession stand out among its counterparts.

This is the time to stand up and give nursing its credibility and take it to the climax because without nursing, the health sector will be no where to be found in the society.

Be delighted in your words and actions as you render the holistic care putting Human Rights into consideration by being fair, show dignity, respect, allow autonomy and equality to patients irrespective of their status, gender,tribe,religion

For this profession to move forward, capable leaders are needed to strengthen its professionalism and re-brand its image. Let us soar together as one and give nursing its credibilities.

We have been our patients advocates in our interest with doctors and administrations, why not with Congress? Who better to speak to policy makers on behalf of nurses than nurses? Who has a better understanding of what nurses do than nurses? Who is In the best position to address the health concerns of our patients than nurses? If not nurses, whom!? If not now, when?

This is the time to speak and to be heard, to hold elective offices,more nurses are needed in the Parliament no one else in the health profession can speak with the voice that we have!
