Nursing is so much more than a collection of skills and knowledge that make up a job title. It is the choice to dedicate one’s life to helping others, and a complex fusion of traits, abilities and beliefs.
So what does it really mean to be a nurse?
Nursing is learning something new every day. It is the highs and lows of doing something incredible for someone else while constantly being at risk for self-mortification. It is the art form of constantly changing your plan based on the ever-shifting conditions of your patient, your environment and yourself.
Nursing is about giving someone else strength when they have none, and providing answers in a time of weakness and uncertainty. It is, above all else, about caring.
