    You could include a reading. You could have hand outs, so the grads can follow along with you.
    Here is a great one:

    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 very little 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 see life begin .. and end.

    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.

    that we have a quote about Nursing being read during the program(from a classmate)--Do you think that it would be redundant to have 2 in the same program???

    Thanks again
