    it's not always WHAT WE CAN ACHIEVE that matters but IT'S WHAT WE BECOME from having made that effort. And for me the best thing I can do is TO become WHAT GOD WANTS ME TO BECOME...

    It is fundamental for a human being to care, but when science and faith spins with care, NURSING is probably the most appropriate word, it's not just a profession rather a unqiue calling - it's a way of living with a purpose.

    The reason decided to go to nursing school is this thought:
    IF I JUST DO MY JOB AS A NURSE WHO KNOWS HOW MANY LIFES I CAN SAVE OR CHANGE JUST BY BEING WHO I AM I CAN HELP HEEL AND PROLONG SOMEONE'S LIFE. I CAN BE A PART OF THE TEAM THAT GIVES SOMEONE A SECOND CHANCE ALL BECAUSE I CARE

    Nursing as a job there is no other, but as a profession is robotic. I would like to see us back at the bedside spending time with the patients (as a whole) including families. This is a very compassionate, healing, life changing time. We need each other!

    "An oncology ward is a battlefield, and there are definite hierachies of command. The patients, they're the ones doing the tour of duty. The doctors breeze in and out like conquering heroes, but they need to read your child's chart to remember where they've left off from the previous visit. It is the nurses who are the seasoned sergeants - the ones who are there when your baby is shaking with such a high fever she needs to be bathed in ice, the ones who can teach you how to flush a central venous catheter, or suggest which patient floor kitchens might still have Popsicles left to be stolen, or tell you which dry cleaners know how to remove the stains of blood and chemotherapy from clothing. The nurses know the name of your daughter's stuffed walrus and show her how to make tissue paper flowers to twist around her IV stand. The doctors may be mapping out the war games but it is the nurses who make the conflict bearable."

    Health care is like a three-ring circus, you've got the patients, the facility, and yourself. Anything can happen at any moment, so be prepared!

    Confidence is not thinking you will always succeed; that is mere stupidity. Confidence is knowing that if you fail, you will have the courage to persevere. - This was written by my amazing 14 yr old when I almost failed out of nursing school.

    This from a nurse who was a confidant during my first year as a nurse, "Trust your instincts. They come from the collection of all your experiences that brought you to this point."

    "Love people and use things...dont use people and love things" that was one of the many quotes that i recall from my adorable mother. She told me that growing up and it stuck to not only my mind but also my heart.
