When I see the charge nurse jaunting out of the unit while I’m drowning trying to get everything finished before the next shift comes in…
I always try to bring a little cheer to the unit when I’m charge nurse… that’s started to backfire now because every time I see someone the first thing out of their mouth is:

I realized that being a nurse is incomparable: as we care for our patients, we learn how to cover our sorrow with a smile; we learn how to stay vigorous despite all the tasks we endure; we learn how to give hope even though our’s is unclearly seen; we learn how to give strength even at times that we are weak. Nobody would know what kind of life a nurse has unless they become one.
