I will never regret my decision to become an RN.  I had several short lived careers before I finally earned my nursing degree, but the title I always identify with is nurse.  Did you catch the surge of nursing pride that followed the Miss America pageant last month?  Millions of us stood up proudly after some disparaging remarks were made about the contestant who claimed nursing was her talent.  

Nursing is a unique and exciting job choice.  Most people know that it requires a lot of selflessness and compassion to be a nurse, but there is so much more to it.  We are the link between doctors and patients.  In addition to administering the medication and care the doctor prescribes. It is the nurse who will catch subtle (and not so subtle) changes in a patient's status.  But that is not all we do.  We talk, we teach, we listen, we share the victories, and we mourn the losses.  We are there from birth to death, and at every stage in between.

I cannot count the joys and the sorrows that I have experienced during many years of night shifts, but I would not trade a single tear.  I have been blessed by my amazing co-workers and have been honored to work with my patients and their families.

If you are a nurse, you know exactly what I mean - we put a lot into the job!  Here is a Chicken Soup for the Soul book that makes a great choice for your nightstand,coffee table, nurse's station or break room.
