You may be many things to many people — a spouse, a parent, a friend. One of the roles you may be most proud of is that of nurse. Caring for people's well-being and health is something that is important to you, and you have worked hard for the privilege of doing so.
Your choice of nursing as a career likely came from very personal factors and events in your life. Most likely, there are many days when you feel good about the help you can provide and the difference you make in your patients' lives. Nurses are truly on the front line of many life and death battles.
