When I was considering college, my dad offered me some simple advice, “Why don’t you become a nurse?” I rolled my eyes and said, “Nah, I want to be a social worker.” Four years later, I stood proudly with my white cap and nursing pin securely fastened as an RN graduate.
As I reflect on my years in this noble profession, I have witnessed the most unselfish acts of love and pure heroism by my nursing colleagues. I have highlighted some top qualities that represent my gratitude, but this thank you list could encompass an entire page.
2020 – 2021 has been a tough year for the four million nurses in the United States. But they have not wavered from their commitment to providing care to even the sickest among us.
This week is a perfect time to let our nursing colleagues, mentors, professors, and friends know how much they are appreciated.
Coach Beverly thanks each nurse who has cared for me, held my hand, and reassured me that I am going to be okay.
These are just a few ideas to get started. As you think of that special moment of gratitude, maybe you will come up with the perfect idea for that one special nurse.
