Much has been made and said about heroes in the past weeks. In the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more true than ever before that heroes come in all shapes, sizes, and professions. Whether it’s the people stocking the shelves at your favorite grocery store, the hard-working food delivery folks keeping America fed and keeping restaurants alive, or the always present nurses who are risking their lives more than ever before to keep people alive; heroes are everywhere.

In honor of the hard work of nurses, we are having a rather unique article contest. We want your story about your inspiration in becoming a nurse. Your impactful story about your inspiration could make you a winner of one of our prizes!

My nurse hero topic is why I decided to become a nurse in the first place if I ever make it. A resident doctor missed an 11cm mrsa infection in my left lung. A nurse practioner caught it by ordering an x-ray. I would be dead without her intervention

She became my hero and I dedicated my life to giving back by becoming a nurse. It is very difficult for me to become a nurse given that I am schizoaffective, but I decided that it was worth the risk.

It is better than a lifetime on disability any ways

I am currently in my first semester of a BSN program and I am likely to get 4 Bs

I can be a jerk at times, but I take the debt I owe seriously

I owe a debt to nurses as I would literally be dead without them. Doctors too, but it was the np who caught the mrsa infection

So that's my story I hope to become a nurse despite my conditions, but god alone knows if I will

I do not know if my conditions will allow for it, but I take my debt very seriously.

Its why I pursued a BSN in the first place, and It seems like I will pass my first semester.

I only regret that I was not able to thank her properly I delivered a card to the clinic of thanks, but I never got to see her again.

When she literally saved my life

Hi there, ALL nurses are treasures to me. I wrote a book about a nurse caled Augusta Chiwy (Google her)and made a documentary that won multiple Emmy Awards a few years ago. My wife is a frontline nurse in Belgium, so is my daughter and my niece and back in my homeland my sisters are both working on the front lines. Well I'm now writing a book about  American nurses from Concord and Lexington to Covid-19. 

YOU are all angels.  Stay safe.
