had a great day in nursing!


As a new grad on a med surg floor I have had so many days where i honestly wanted to quit!! But im happy to share my great last night! All my patients were angels and i went to help an elderly man to the BSC after he urinated on his sheets. As I was helping him to his feet (he was kinda shaky) and said, "would you like to dance?" It was truly a great moment because you could tell he was a gentlemen. We laughed and I made sure he had everything he needed, changed his gown and bed and tucked him in. I wish he was actually able to dance with me!! a special moment for me. THAT is what i love about nursing.... those special caring moments. :redbeathethanks for reading!!
