Nursing is a profession that assumes responsibility for the continuous care of the sick, the injured, people with disabilities, and the dying. Nurses are also responsible for encouraging the health of individuals, families, and communities in medical and community settings. Nurses are actively involved in health care, research, management, policy deliberations, and patient advocacy.
Walking into a new doctor’s office or an emergency room is very nerve-wracking for a patient. Most of us are nervous, concerned or scared, and then we encounter a nurse. They introduce themselves, smile and ask us what’s going on and what brings us in today. We start to explain the reason for our visit, the nurse engages us, asks questions, smiles at us, asks for more details. Talking to the nurse, our face and shoulder muscles soften, we feel at ease, heard.
Nurses work hard to show their respect to their patients. Always saying please and thank you, asking if it’s okay to touch, to look closer. They know that a comfortable patient is better to assess and help and go out of their way to us at ease. Think about the nurses who help patients use the restroom, dress, undress and help them understand their medical issues. Nurses have a tough job, and yet, they show up each shift with the goal of helping their patients anyway they can. Thank you nurses for respecting your patients and thereby giving us the level of care, we deserve. Today, and every day, thank a nurse!
