  1. Yes you could walk a mile in my shoes UA because you are a giving company! I have a pedometer and I try to walk at least 10,000 steps per day. At work I get around 8 ,000to 9,000 steps. But I know you mean what I do as a nurse!!!! I love being a nurse because I enjoy the pt care! Yes you do get some hard to deal with pt’s!!!! But that keeps you on your toes and teaches you to be strong and have good character!

  2. What I like most about being a nurse is knowing that I make a difference in someones life everyday!

  3. 2 milles!!! Or more this shoes are very comfortable!!!! I love helping people. And see at the end their face of greatful

  4. What I like most about being a nurse is being able to build a relationship with the patient and the family and being apart of that patients recovery process.

  5. The thing I like best about working in the medical field is knowing that I’m making a difference in others lives.

  6. What I like most about being in the medical field, specifically being a nurse, is that I am able to help people through some of their toughest times in their lives. I know that every little thing makes a huge difference in a person’s life, and knowing that is amazing!

  7. I like getting to work with others and seeing improvements in another’s well-being.

  8. As a child growing up my mom was a pediatric oncology nurse. She worked many hours and nights and I missed her a lot. As I grew older I went to work with her one day. That day I knew I wanted to be a nurse when I grew up. I wanted to be the one helping those people. I am 28 now and work as a cna and going through classes for nursing. I love the medical field. I love being able to take care of my residents, being able to talk with them and help them with things they can no do themselves. It’s not an easy job as many may think. I’m on my feet for 8hrs straight. Running around answering lights, tolieting people, changing them or helping them eat their meal. When in turn I’m holding my bathroom break in, not being able to eat my lunch or go on break because someone’s not feeling well and they need me. I still love my job though, because it feels amazing when they give you a hug or thank you so much over and over for your help. That’s why I love the medical field, because I know I was there to care and help them. I’m so excited to still be a nurse someday, and working hard to get that goal. If you love being able to do the things I just described, you could def walk many miles in my shoes

  9. <3 my alegria shoes & sandals… they are the only footwear that takes care of my feet through a double shift!!!

  10. I enjoy working as a CMA ..With mental disabilyand elderly residents . Each day there is different challages with the residents both medical and mental
    challages. I lot of peple wouldn’t even consider working with the challages
    that these people face in every day in their lives. You get to see what things
    brings big smiles to there faces and how hard they work at it to make even small steps in their lives. I think both Nurses and CMA’S make differents in
    there lives in how they hand each resident.

  11. The pleasure to know you helped someone relieve their pain and their fear of dying.Turning a frown into a Smile. This is some of my favorite Rewards in Long Term Nursing!

  12. I love working in the medical field because your always helping someone out. The history that you can learn from your older resident is priceless. Some of them have opened my eyes to look at things differently. If I make it to 100 like them I hope to have the same joy that they have and live my live to the fullest.

  13. Having the opportunity to help someone each and every day is what I like most about the medical field.

  14. I like most about being in the Heath profession is being able to instill some home into a frightened mind, that’s sick, afraid and feel helpless hat some one is taking care of their basic needs. I try to make them feel blessed instead of depressed, and let them know with faith there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

  15. I love making connections with my patients and their families! It is a privilage to help guide them through what can be a very difficult time in their lives!

  16. What I love most about being a Nurse is the knowledge I can pass onto my patients to comfort them in times if need.

  17. I absolutley love these shoes have been looking for a pair but can’t find any I like but these ones are deffinently ones I love and would purchase:)

  18. The thing I like about being in the medical field is that it gives me a since of purpose in my life. There’s nothing else I see myself doing that I would enjoy more than, helping the sick feel better. I love the fact that I get to meet people from all walks of life. I get to here their stories and make new friends.

  19. I love the fact that I get to connect with families. Not only do I touch their lives, but they touch mine.

  20. What I like most about being in the medical field is…well…everything. Being a CMA allows me to do a little bit of everything: triage, lab, ekg, desk work. What could be better than having the opportunity to “switch it up” every now and then?

  21. I love the people I get to work with and being able to help other people makes me feel like I have a purpose.

  22. The most amazing thing to me about being in the medical field is the chance to help my patients, My heart just swells when we get a patient assistance approved or a same day appointment, or just a call back with anticipated test results, my patients are so appricative thats what makes my day

  23. The thing I like most is the feeling of making a difference in other people’s lives. It’s such a rewarding feeling! I would love a pair of the black leather Debra slip-on shoe (DEB 601)! They are very classic and would go with just about anything. I can’t find the “Like” button on the page though!!

  24. Since Nurses Week is approaching, tell us if we could “walk a mile in your shoes” what you like MOST about being in the medical field??
    What I like most is working for an incredible hospital with supportive staff, but what I LOVE MOST is the patients in the Intensive Care Nursery I care for!

  25. I work with children as a dental hygienist in a pediatric office. I love it because you never know what they are going to say.

  26. I love knowing that I have made a difference in someone’s life. It’s so nice to get a letter from a patient you took care of, and they tell you that they made a life changing decision because you “kept it real”. People love to be treated like they are people, regardless of their situation. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

  27. Walking a mile in my (hopefully) new Alegria shoes means working in a field that gives me a sense of purpose and fulfillment. Not many people get to walk out of work everyday and know that they changed someone’s life. Most everyday I get to say that. I love that when treating and caring for people we are all on an equal level, in the most very raw and un-judged way. No one person is treated different than another. Everyone is treated the same, with respect, compassion and care. In so many circumstances in life this is not the case. There truly is no other professional field that can compare, and for these reasons, I love my job.

  28. What I love most about being in the medical field is being able to be positive and put a smile on peoples faces everyday. I get to be someone these people can depend on and someone who can make them realize that even if they are sick or disabled they can still live a normal life. I love to keep it positive for them!

  29. I love the medical field for the simple fact that you are constantly learning things! I love the interaction with my patients! Nursing is all about caring and nurturing! Everyday I experience something new and I would never change it for anything. I am not only humble but I am grateful to experience and work in a field that I love! I wish everyone could “walk a mile In my shoes” even for a day. It is a experience of a lifetime!

  30. If you could walk a mile in my shoes, what I love most about being a nurse is the smile and the simple thank you I get. It makes the difference!

  31. What I like most about this industry that I am in and nursing is that it will always be growing, it will always get bigger and there will always be a demand of nurses. But there is a difference from being a ‘nurse’ and being a ‘great nurse’. A great nurse is someone that walks into a room and makes sure he/she puts a smile on that patients face. A great nurse is a patient advocate 100% and we will take the bullet from the doctor yelling at us. A great nurse puts everything they have into saving a patient from dying. That’s what I love most about the medical field. That I know no matter what I walk into a patients room I will put a smile on there face, I will always be 100% patient advocate and I have put everything on the line to save a patient.

  32. I myself am not a nurse, I’m an EFDA!! What I like about being an EFDA would be being able to help a patient and relieve there pain and know that they will be back to see the Dentist because of me and the care I gave them!!

  33. lt is so hard to pick a favorite but ONE of my favorite would be the Alegria Seville Leather clog

  34. What I Like about being a nurse is to be able to reassure my patients and their families during a emotional time. So I can,t be worrying about my feet!
    The Alegria Sevlle leather clog would be helpful for my tooties!

  35. What I love most about being in the medical field is… to be able to affect a positive change in my patient’s lives
