Being a nurse is a privilege. And a calling. If your feelings aren't in it at all, what kind of nurse can you be? If I am going to be a great nurse, I want to be able to put myself in their shoes and give them the best care they deserve, the kind that I would want. There once was a day where nurses were kind, considerate, empathetic, caring, and felt compassionate for the ones they cared for. I didn't get into this profession to just keep people alive. I entered this profession because I care a great deal about people.
