    Absolutely inspiring, very uplifting, refreshing, and motivating. It lifts the spirit of nurses who sometimes can feel unappreciated and taken for granted.

    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

    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."
