Spirit of Nursing

This week has helped me remember why I love nursing.

Patients and their family members remembered me (and my name) even when I'd been off for a day or two. They were glad to see me. They vented to me. They reached out for hugs. They called me their angel.

One of the aides told another aide she liked working with me.

Good days at work make it easier to leave the girls in the care of near-strangers at the crack of dawn.
