I love seeing the blood make the first pass through a pristine white dialyzer! Something about knowing how much cleaner the blood is after it passes the artificial kidney and I know I have good access flow. A fresh dialysis treatment begins.

And also why I work Peds Private Duty. I love happy play time with my toddler client who doesn't realize that we're accomplishing his physical therapy goals.

Starting IVs for sure. I’m one of those people who drools over nice looking veins.

I love how diverse the responses are. Reminds me of my old floor where we all had our own strengths and loved working as a team. We all pitched in to get the pt the best care possible.

One of the biggest things I love about nursing is the variety!

I got to remember yesterday how satisfying it is to run a Kangaroo pump and prime the tubing.....

I also realize I forgot my hospital training (first, gather your supplies....).

Just reading this late...

I was amazed & so satisfied when I would push a bolus of dextrose 50% for an unconscious pt.  And then they responded within a few brief seconds. This is significant because only 1 NH I worked had facility standing orders/protocol for severe hypoglycemia.

Like another poster, I like to comb pts rat-nest hair. It just makes them look so much more neat, esp when visitors would come in.

And eyeglasses!!! I would just try to clear the smudges from all those  'Mr Magoo" type lens. Pts would almost start to cry with thankfulness. Eyeglasses were my really #1 thing.

I also liked to make sure pts were 'neat & presentable' after post-mortem care. I never wanted to be known as the nurse from the facility who sent pts to the funeral home so sloppy. I would try to straighten limbs (esp  clean hands, close the jaw, fit dentures in (if poss), CLOSE the eyes, apply a clean ostomy bag, etc.
