What it means to be a nurse

You will never be bored
You will always be frustrated
You will be surrounded by challenges
So much to do and so little time
You will carry immense responsibility and have very little authority
You will step into people's lives and make a difference
Some will bless you
Some will curse you
You will see people at their worst and at their best
You will never cease to be amazed at people's capacity for love, courage, and endurance
You will see life begin and end
You will experience resounding triumphs and devastating failures
You will cry a lot
You will laugh a lot
You will know what it is to be human and to be humane
