    my dear im fine and doing great.I know there are some pple that left miracle hill for consulate, you know, due to individual preferences.wats the starting pay there? yeah, I know moriam very well and its true that I was part of her baby's naming party. I also know she works nght shift, I guess you work night shift too. Veronica Bradly is also frm miracle hill and like I said, pple have their prefernces when it comes to job. I have a motive and that motive is to obtain my BSN in the shortest amt of time. so I guess Miracle hill is giving me that opportunity for now cos I'm mostly 'in charge', so there is less work for me and more time to study. I hope you still retain your brilliant IQ and dont let it sink before you further your career. I have not really spoken to anyone in ou class and you should remember that I used to be very quiet in those days, so really never mingled a lot.
    Anyway, I hope life treats us all kind and say hi to moriam, natashi and velda.

    Inspirational Stories, Touching Poems
    20 Things I've Learned From Nursing by by Sally P. Karioth, RN, Ph.D

    1. When you're 92, you shouldn't have to beg for the salt shaker, even if you do have congestive heart failure.

    2. Our profession has no room for bullies or whiners.

    3. Every day I've held a hand but forgotten to chart vitals, I still may have come out ahead.

    4. A good doctor is one who'll say, " I have no idea what's going on with this patient. Come help me figure it out."

    5. Nursing in the hardest and easiest thing I've ever done.

    6. Whatever I need in a hurry will be in someone else's room.

    7. Healing the spirit is as important as healing the mind.

    8. If I don't take care of myself, I can't take care of anyone else.

    9. A body believes every word you tell it.

    10. Time flies whether or not I'm having fun.

    11. A lot of patients get well in spite of us, but even more get well because of us.

    12. If I don't get emotionally involved with my patients, it's time for me to change professions.

    13. It's usually better to beg forgiveness than to ask permission, especially if I'm taking a St. Bernard to see a child in ICU.

    14. Professionals give advice but healers share wisdom.

    15. If I don't celebrate the exquisiteness of each day, I've lost something I'll never get back.

    16. Grief knows no rules.

    17. The more unloving a patient acts, the more he needs to be loved.

    18. Some things have to be believed to be seen.

    19. No one promises us tomorrow.

    20. If I can't cure, I can still care.

    When God Created Nurses

    When the Lord made Nurses He was into his sixth day of overtime.

    An angel appeared and said, "You're doing a lot of fiddling around on this one."

    And the Lord said, "Have you read the specs on this order?

    A nurse has to be able to help an injured person, breathe life into a dying person,

    and give comfort to a family that has lost their only child and not wrinkle their uniform.

    They have to be able to lift 3 times their own weight,

    work 12 to 16 hours straight without missing a detail,

    console a grieving mother as they are doing CPR on a baby

    they know will never breathe again.

    They have to be in top mental condition at all times,

    running on too-little sleep, black coffee and half-eaten meals.

    And they have to have six pairs of hands.

    The angel shook her head slowly and said, "Six pairs of hands...no way!"

    "It's not the hands that are causing me problems," said the Lord,

    "It's the two pairs of eyes a nurse has to have."

    "That's on the standard model?" asked the angel.

    The Lord nodded. "One pair that does quick glances while making

    note of any physical changes, And another pair of eyes that can look

    reassuringly at a bleeding patient and say,

    "You'll be all right ma'am" when they know it isn't so."

    "Lord," said the angel, touching his sleeve, "rest and work on this tomorrow."

    "I can't," said the Lord, "I already have a model

    that can talk to a 250 pound grieving family member whose child has been

    hit by a drunk driver...who, by the way, is laying in the next room uninjured,

    and feed a family of five on a nurse's paycheck."

    The angel circled the model of the nurse very slowly,

    "Can it think?" she asked.

    "You bet," said the Lord. "It can tell you the symptoms of 100 illnesses;

    recite drug calculations in it's sleep; intubate, defibrillate, medicate,

    and continue CPR nonstop until help arrives...and still it keep it's sense of humor.

    This nurse also has phenomenal personal control. They can deal with a

    multi-victim trauma, coax a frightened elderly person to unlock their

    door,comfort a murder victim's family, and then read in the daily paper

    how nurses are insensitive and uncaring and are only doing a job."

    Finally, the angel bent over and ran her finger across the cheek of the nurse.

    "There's a leak," she pronounced.

    "I told you that you were trying to put too much into this model."

    "That's not a leak," said the Lord, "It's a tear."

    "What's the tear for?" asked the angel.

    "It's for bottled-up emotions, for patients they've tried in vain to save,

    for commitment to the hope that they will make a difference

    in a person's chance to survive, for life."

    "You're a genius," said the angel.

    The Lord looked somber. "I didn't put it there," He said.

    THE FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE PLEDGE

    I solemnly pledge myself before God and presence of this assembly;
    To pass my life in purity and to practice my profession faithfully.
    I will abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous
    and will not take or knowingly administer any harmful drug.
    I will do all in my power to maintain and elevate the standard
    of my profession and will hold in confidence all personal matters
    committed to my keeping and family affairs coming to my
    knowledge in the practice of my calling.
    With loyalty will I endeavor to aid the physician in his work,
    and devote myself to the welfare of those committed to my care.

    "If" for Nurses

    If you can bring a special understanding
    To all of those entrusted to your care

    And meet their needs, no matter how demanding
    With patience and energy to spare;

    If you can lend each task your full devotion,
    And always try to listen and to cheer,

    If you can learn to understand emotion,
    And comfort others just by being near;

    If you look forward with anticipation
    to meeting special challenges each day,

    If you keep your faith and dedication
    Whenever disappointment comes your way;

    If you take pride in giving your profession
    The finest skills and talents you possess,

    Then all your dreams and goals will find expression
    And, as a nurse, you'll be a great success.
