    I'd take a moment of compassion over a day of competence. Caring for the infirmed is next to Godliness. Caring and compassion are the two vitals that are at the core of my practice.

    To do what nobody else will do, a way that nobody else can do, in spite of all we go through; is to be a nurse."
    Nursing is an art: and if it is to be made an art, it requires an exclusive devotion as hard a preparation, as any painter's or sculptor's work; for what is the having to do with dead canvas or dead marble, compared with having to do with the living body, the temple of God's spirit? It is one of the Fine Arts: I had almost said, the finest of Fine Arts. ~Florence Nightingale

    Being a nurse(CNA,RT/PT/OT/ST...)is challenging and fulfilling like no other profession. It is also more demanding and draining. The best thing that makes it all worth it, is when I get home and put my feet up; I am tired but I have made a difference this day. All the aches and pains, frustration and responsiblity, are forgotten when I know I have done my best to help my patients. That's a Good Day (*_*)
