Happy Nurses Day!

Being a NURSE means you carry immense responsibility & very little authority. You step into people's lives and make a difference. Some bless you, others curse you. You see people at their worst and best. You see life begin and end. You see people's capacity for love, courage, and endurance....

Today was a wonderful Nurses Day! I gave my fellow RN's Nurses day cards, and it went up from there. We were delivered bagels, donuts, fruit platter, and an Edible Arrangement. The BEST part of the day was when my wonderful Husband surprised me at work (while putting an IV in someone mind you) with BEAUTIFUL roses and a card. It was so sweet, and the flowers are stunningly beautiful! I then treated myself to a relaxing pedicure :)

I absolutely LOVE what I do, and know It's what I'm supposed to be doing. Everyday when I go to work I realize how lucky I am that I get to take care of people, comfort them, and alleviate stress. I've saved lives, and I've lost them too. No matter what, there isn't any other career I'd rather do.

Happy Nurses Day!!

You rock, Jess! There are so many nurses that I would love to thank personally, who went above and beyond the call of duty while I was either going into one of my many surgeries, or doing a stint in the hospital. Even if they just stood next to me while I was being put under for a procedure because I was panicking, I appreciate what nurses do every day. It is a hard and often thankless job, and you all deserve a big "Woohoo!!" lol

Happy Nurses Day (one day late). I know you love what you do and truly have a passion for it. I can't wait til I'm in the same place :) Nurses are awesome and such a big part of your care when you are in the hospital. I know I love mine and they take such good care of me!
