Got this one from my boss over where I volunteer. Really nothing I can say about this one, except have your hankies ready.

all I can say is wow! (pass the tissues)

I am a new graduate from the Marion County School of Practical Nursing, waiting to take the NCLEX. When I began this journey, I thought I'd be happy working in a physician's office...but, learning about death and the process of dying and seeing this video, I now know that I WILL continue to RN and will work in hospice! I will be the 'crazy' nurse with her therapy trained dog working at her side! What a blessing that will be!!!
