I have been asked to recite a poem for our pinning ceremony. Does anyone have ideas where I can find an inspirational poem that is geared toward new nursing graduates. Everything I am finding is for nurses that have been in the profession for a while. Thanks for the help!!!!

Well not sure if this qualifies...
A NURSE'S WISH
To be a nurse requires dedication,
With years of study and preparation.
I pray for guidance and humbly ask,
That I will do well with this chosen task.
When illness stikes or pain demands,
And a life is placed within my hands,
Give me compassion, knowledge and skill
To do the things that comfort and heal.
Suffering makes patients' fear grow worse
And they seek reassurance from their nurse.
Help me see things from their point of view
And always to know what is best to do.
May I have a part, in some small way,
In restoring good health to someone today.
Let my work be all that I want it to be--
I ask the great healer to work through me.
