Today I REALLLY did not want to go to work. But I woke up, got my coffee and put a smile on my face because I knew their were patients in beds that needed a girl like me to cheer them up and help them get through their hospital stay. Most days I'm usually the teacher, the helper, the walker, someone to talk to because their family didn't visit, or they have no family at all (breaks my heart). I am so happy I chose to become a nurse. It has absolutely molded me into the person I've always wanted to become; a compassionate, loving, nonjudgmental healthcare provider.
