Thank you to all the nurses out there for your hard work and dedication to patients all over the world.
I love nursing due to several reasons.
1) It is a fulfilling job that you can feel happy with yourself about.
2) It is so nice to know that you are helping people out and that you make a huge difference to the patients.
I was recently asked this question from a very new coworker. My reply after almost 20 years in the nursing field. ” Because everyonce in while you make a difference from the norm, and that difference changes lives”. I love being a nurse.
