Types of Nurses

Middle-Aged Musings: a Collection of Writings

Well, it’s a sad day indeed when I verbally acknowledge my own grumpiness and all of my coworkers agree! It’s a struggle to have patience… except with patients. With my patients, I give everything I have and am able to keep in mind that these are people who are loved by someone.

I was impressed with the number of young ones entering the profession and how caring they were. It’s nit easy touching another person but the ‘human touch’ was such a satisfying feeling and these nurses did it with the utmost professionalism and dignity. Wonderful story.
