Being a nurse…

Friday, July 11th, 2008

One message I received from my friend…

Being a nurse isn’t about grades. It’s about being who we are. No book can teach you how to be emphatic. No class can teach you how to tell a family that their parents are dying. No professor can teach you how to find dignity in giving someone a bed bath. A nurse is not about the pills, the charting. It’s about being able to LOVE people when they are at their weakest moments.

One text message that speaks a lot about nurses. Oh well, bed bath is not that easy (one fact about me: I got 56%, yes a failing mark in one of my return demonstrations during my sophomore years for the reason that I didn’t big a large towel. pfft.) Charting may seem monotonous but charting is considered one legal document and that with a single mistake, it can endanger your license as a nurse. Charting is not easy because every individual is not of the same level of health. Every individual is unique that you need to render special interventions focused on each of their needs. I have a lot to say about nursing but since I also got “a lot” of things to do, I would stop here first and wait for my next post.

P.S
I am so in high level of toxicity because of my community organizing concept (to be blogged soon..LOL!). I miss clinical setting. =( (I just stole some minutes in my studying time just to post this. LOL! i hope it does make sense…)
