    I admire them so much, I became one. I just took my state boards a few hours ago and pray that my dream has finally come true and I will be the nurse I have always wanted to be! For all those other aspiring nurses, keep your head up!

    This happened tonight.

    I was at the hospital because was having surgery. I headed up to the ward she was eventually moved to. A middle aged woman was walking down the hall in her hospital gown. It became untied in the back. This nurse fixed it without missing a beat. I wish some of the nurses...

    All nurses everywhere in the world go above

    and beyond, they go without eating sometimes to help a injured or sick patient that comes into the OR, ER, or hospital. My step mom is a very well liked nurse by everyone at the hospital she works at.

    The nurse putting my IV in was

    so skilled at it I barely felt it, I made sure to thank her for treating me and all her patients so well. There's not many jobs I feel get as under appreciated as nurse, sometimes they truly make a difference.

    Those I have met have always been open

    and caring but I do think that the NHS mucks them about and the imposition of heavy management structures is not suitable for a caring profession.Heath care is not a business to make money It is an expression of social love and support.

    I spent two weeks in hospital earlier this year

    due to Chronic Heart Failure. Until then I never knew just how much nurses do. A hospital wouldn't last five seconds without nurses. I have a lot of respect and gratitude for them. Thank you for looking after me in my greatest time of need.

    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...
