Nursing Poems, Prayers, and Stories

  1. i save these when i find them, and i thought it might make a good thread to share nursing poems, stories, prayers, or anything else we've come across.....

    i'll start with one of my favorites :d

    being a nurse means

    you will never be bored
    you will always be frustrated
    you will be surrounded by challenges.
    so much to do and so little time
    you will carry immense responsibility
    and limited authority.
    you will step into people's lives
    and you will make a difference.
    some will bless you,
    some will curse you.
    you will see people at their worst
    and at their best.
    you will never cease to be amazed
    at people's capacity for
    love, courage, and endurance.
    you will experience resounding triumphs
    and devastating failures.
    you will cry a lot.
    you will laugh a lot.
    you will know what it is to be human
    and to be humane.

    unknown author
    help me as i care
    for my patients today,
    be there with me,
    o lord, i pray
    make my words kind
    --it means so much--
    and in my hands place
    your healing touch
    let your love shine
    through all that i do,
    so those in need
    may hear and feel you.
