Viagra Soft

Viagra soft nursead

Viagra soft I just love this ad.

Viagra soft Judging by the text, viagra soft it looks like an ad from the UK.

Viagra soft I like it so much, viagra soft I can’t even think of a joke to go with it.

Viagra soft I did this exact thing as a child, viagra soft except I used my little sisters as my “patients” and the “hospital” was under the card table in my great-grandmother’s bedroom. Viagra soft Of course I always wore a paper cap!

Viagra soft My great-grandmother taught me to make the best nursing caps out of typing paper! I held it onto my hair with paper clips.


Almost two years ago, viagra soft I considered writing an e-book on why nursing was a great profession. Viagra soft I just found my introduction in an old “blog file” and realized I had never posted it. Viagra soft I do so now, viagra soft because we can always use a reminder of what sent us into this profession. Viagra soft I now present, viagra soft the intro to the e-book that never was!


“You’ll always have a job.”

Viagra soft “You’ll always have something to fall back on!”

Viagra soft This is what I heard as a child when I first announced my decision to be a nurse.

Viagra soft It was (and is) absolutely true.

Viagra soft Nursing is the backbone of the health care industry in the United States.

Viagra soft Patients are admitted to hospitals solely for the fact that they require nursing care.

Viagra soft Advanced practice nurses (Nurse Practitioners) are needed to work in tandem with physicians in both rural and urban areas to ensure access to healthcare.

Viagra soft Nurses are needed to work with patients in the home, viagra soft when hospitalization is no longer required but the need for nursing care remains.


Only there aren’t enough nurses to meet the needs of our rapidly expanding health care systems.

Viagra soft Nurses are needed. Viagra soft Desperately.

Viagra soft Nursing instructors are frantically educating the next generation of nursing professionals, viagra soft even as qualified applicants are placed on waiting lists or chosen by lottery.

Viagra soft Nursing professors are needed. Viagra soft Desperately.

Viagra soft Nursing will provide you job stability, viagra soft a healthy (no pun intended) income, viagra soft a flexible schedule and good benefits.

Viagra soft But there’s more.


Nursing provides you a way to make a difference in your life, viagra soft your patients’ lives, viagra soft the life of the community in which you serve.

Viagra soft Nursing is, viagra soft after all, viagra soft a service profession.

Viagra soft You will serve by healing the sick and promoting health in the community. Viagra soft You will serve the disenfranchised of society and those who reside in upscale communities. Viagra soft You will see them as equals. Viagra soft They are your responsibility.

Viagra soft They are your patients.


Viagra soft You will work hard. Viagra soft You will make decisions on the fly that will affect lives and make lasting impressions on those you care for. Viagra soft You will give of yourself until you have to dig from the depths of your soul to keep on giving. Viagra soft You will occasionally leave work exhausted, viagra soft frustrated, viagra soft maybe angry.

Viagra soft You will be present at the beginning of life and you will be there guiding a patient and their family through the process of dying. Viagra soft You will receive untold rewards from your patients. Viagra soft Perhaps it will be a heartfelt “thank you”. Viagra soft Or a shy smile from a toddler as you hand them a teddy bear. Viagra soft Maybe it will be the satisfaction of watching an anxious patient in pain relax and sleep for the first time in a day.

Viagra soft But let me tell you the greatest reason for choosing to be a nurse…

Viagra soft When you walk out of that job, viagra soft whether it be a hospital, viagra soft a clinic or a home, viagra soft you will leave with the knowledge that you made a difference in someone’s life.

Viagra soft And you will be touched by those same lives.

Viagra soft In the end, viagra soft even considering the benefits, viagra soft the flexibility, viagra soft the income and the respect you will receive as a nurse…

Viagra soft Making a difference in your patient’s lives is the best reason of all.

    Thank you for being a nurse. It’s not that we “need more nurses”, it’s that we “need more nurses like you”.

    Maybe you should consider a book of essays on this subject. Thank you for writing this posting and please contact nursing education departments and ask them to share this information with visiting students and new employees.

    Found this post through grand rounds. It’s great! We do need more _good_ nurses. No matter what hospital administrators think, patient care techs are not substitutes for good nurses.

    Rock on Kim! I only wish I was a quarter as eloquent as you! I’m going to have to print that and put it up on the wall in the new clinic I’m helping to open in Jan.

    I love this post! Its really inspiring. Currently, I’m a health educator that started out as a nursing major 10 years ago. I just recently decided to do a career change to nursing! Its great to read and hear about people who truly enjoy and promote the field of nursing. I think, I missed my calling, and looking forward to reclaiming my destiny as a nurse. Thanks for this post. It has truly inspired me to work toward the career endeavor.

    I am currently considering becoming a nurse. That’s what I wanted to do right out of HS, but unfortunately my parents didn’t have the funds to send me to college and wanted me to pay rent. Now that I’m “older” and am thinking about a second career … I’m still contemplating nursing. I don’t enjoy the sight of blood like I once did, but I’ll have to see what happens.

    1. Graduated from Nursing school….
    2. Passed the NCLEX examination.
    3. Accumulated $50,000+ in student loans..

    4. UNEMPLOYED, and can’t find an RN position anywhere.


    *As of April 2012, Beyonce Knowles admits to the public that she left school at 15 years of age, and is not obtaining her G.E.D.
    Beyonce Knowles current wealth….more than 80 Million U.S. dollars.

    Feeling like you wasted your life in becoming an RN…priceless.
