It's a inspiration to see nurses supporting nurses especially in the current environment. Let's keep supporting each other and realize what power we have to create a safe practice for our patients and ourselves. We need to band together and keep our support like this thread going! All nurses rock! This is awesome.

I give my utmost respect to the MS nurses for the patient loads they have to take. It takes a strong person to deal with that. I could not do it permanently. And yes I have, as an ICU nurse, walked more than one shift in the shoes of a MS nurse.

BUT..... I am pretty damn sure ICU nurses "depend on their assessment skill, knowledge base and gut" while caring for their patients also. Just because we have "modern technology" doesn't mean we don't use/need basic nursing skills!!!

Way to perpetuate the "us against them" attitude.

Agreed, I thought the same thing. I don't get why we can't just appreciate the amazing skills our colleagues have instead of continually trying to one-up each other. All of us, for each different department, are AMAZING.

Personally, my kudos goes to the LTC, psych, oncology, hospice, palliative care nurses. I could never do what you do, you are a special bunch of people to be able to do what you do every day. Hugs!

Being a nurse is a great profession. I'm proud to be one!

It was never easy being a nurse. The pressures and the expectations are very high but whenever I see patients recovered and saying a simple "thank you", it makes my profession worthwhile.

Specializes in L&D; Post-Op Med/Surg.

I have been a nurse on a post-op med-surg unit for one year now that has tested my sanity more than a few times but what I have learned in that time has been priceless. It feels great to hear all these praises & recognitions. But all nurses deserve it!

ICU, your mental skill levels blow my mind.

ER, I can only hope I can be that quick in ability as well as have that much patience.

Psyc, hats off to you around the board as I don't know how you do it but thank God someone is willing to.

PEDI, that terrifies many of us so kudos.

L&D, 2-for-1 so enough said.

Oncology & Hospice, it takes a special person to be able to do what you do.

OBS, I would lose my mind at the amount of admits & discharges you have to deal with every day.

Geriatrics, we don't even need to explain that one so hats off.

The list could go on but we all deserve a pat on the back & a job well done!
