9 Reasons to Fall in Love With Nursing

In a very basic sense, nursing is a profession of love. Love means giving of yourself, without asking anything in return, and this is what nurses do every day.

You never know what you’re going to get at the beginning of a shift. You might get a patient that is an absolute joy to work with and save lives. You are equally likely to witness death and have blood and tears all over your scrubs.

At the end of the day, what matters is that you gave a piece of yourself to people you don’t even know — you helped them no matter how badly they treated you, or how tired your feet were, or how many other patients needed you, too. And that is an act of love.

Oh nursing, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways! —>
