    I'm an RN. And tonight at supper I was watching a show on Discovery about the selection process the Marines use to select candidates for the Green Berets. It is very physically and emotionally challenging and the guys were dropping out right and left and throwing up all over the place from the physical stress.

    I turned to another nurse that was working on the computer and said, "you know your a nurse when you can sit here and eat supper while watching a show with men throwing up all over the place!" LOL

    I'm a nurse and so far I think this is the best saying I've seen on here all day! (Not that I consider myself an "angel"...but definitely the "comfortable shoes" part!)

    Nursing is an art: and if it is to be made an art, it requires an exclusive devotion as hard a preparation, as any painter's or sculptor's work; for what is the having to do with dead canvas or dead marble, compared with having to do with the living body, the temple of God's spirit? It is one of the Fine Arts: I had almost said, the finest of Fine Arts. ~Florence Nightingale

    Caring is the essence of nursing.

    What fabulous thoughtful considered sayings. I'm appreciating my profession more with each of these posts.

    Nurses can take the pressure.


    Nurses dispense comfort, compassion, and caring without even a prescription.

    When I think about all the patients and their loved ones that I have worked with over the years, I know most of them don't remember me nor I them. But I do know that I gave a little piece of myself to each of them and they to me and those threads make up the beautiful tapestry in my mind that is my career in nursing. ~Donna Wilk Cardillo, A Daybook for Beginning Nurses
