I Am a Nurse

Many years ago when I was four years old I had a dream of becoming a nurse.
I would bandage my dollies and my dog and had a little cape, cap and a medical bag which held the tools of my trade...
a stethoscope, a syringe and needle (make-believe of course), candy "pills", bandaids and gauze.
I never waivered from my dream, and now, after being a nurse for forty-five years, I have stories to tell, and I would like to share them with you.

As a critical care nurse, my career has made me the person I am today. In those forty-five years, I have faced life and death on a daily basis.
Through the interactions with my patients and their families I have so many beautiful as well as sad memories.
I have met many wonderful people along the way... those I have cared for and those who I have worked with.
I venture to say that nearly every person's life will be touched by a nurse in some way.

I will share these stories but will not violate anyone's privacy.
I will celebrate these patient's lives so that you and I can learn from them and I celebrate the nurses who work tirelessly all over the world
to help alleviate suffering, provide healing and loving care in a patient and family's time of need.
