The Heart of a Nurse
By Confessions of a Semi-Domesicated Mama on May 21, 2012
It's not about going above and beyond. It's about taking the time to do the small things that matter. Like taking that extra 5 minutes to listen to an elderly patient's wife tell you all about her husband's train collection, knowing that she is overwhelmed and just needs a moment of normalcy. Or like the amazing nurses that cared for Dad and gave Mom a dollar so she could run down to buy a cup of coffee. Nursing is about so much more than just patient care.
