    Nurses Are Angels!

    As a physician, I want to personally thank every nurse out there for their hard work and dedication. You are my eyes, ears, and my hands in the frontline of taking care of the patients. Our jobs are so much easier because of the work you do. I also want to apologize for those of...

    Nurses.

    When I was about 6 or 7 I was in hospital for nearly a year, I had a cyst on my brain, and had hydrocelphalus, (fluid on the brain), the nurses were fantastic, helping me get better, that was many years ago now, but I'm so greatful for them.

    Nurses Are Wonderful!

    I have long admired nurses since I was little. Part of it has to do with the fact that I was a preemie, and had to be taken care of by nurses. Later on, I worked in the hospital as a teenager, and working with nurses gave me even greater respect for them. Any time I hear someone...

    They Can Be Angels

    The only experience I really have with being hospitalized was giving birth to my boys. I had amazing nurses both times. It takes a certain kind of person to choose nursing as a career--I don't think I could ever have what it takes, but I admire it. I couldn't deal with the...

    I'm Proud To Be A Nurse

    I Admire Most Nurses

    I admire nurses because where I'm from, they don't get paid much, and the majority of ones I've met in hospitals and clinics and things have been lovely people who seem to really care about the patients they are looking after. I can't say this for all nurses though, I've heard...

    Everytime, I go to the doctor, I am excited. This fascination started when I was ten. I would wait patiently in the waiting room. When a nurse called my name, she would guide me by my hand to the weight and height station. She recorded my data in a notebook. Then, I was relaxed...

    Nurses

    The majority are nice and do their job well.  It also takes lots of patience being a nurse.  They need dealing with people's b.s. either when the patients are in the room, they give them a hard time and / or we see a common amount of patients in the E.R. with attitudes.
