Dear Diary,

"l am a nurse, I didn't become a nurse because I was denied admission into medical school or failed other courses, but rather I chose it.

"l am a nurse, I didn't become a nurse because I was denied admission into medical school or failed other courses, but rather I chose it. 

I work to maintain my patients dignity through trying times, difficult long term decisions and heart breaking situations. 

I share in the joy of the newborn, and miraculously cured illnesses. 


I share in the heartbreak of a child taken too soon, a disease too powerful and a life changed forever. 


My patient is often an entire family. 


I assess , manage, mentor, direct, and advocate, oftentimes I serve medications ignoring the aching feet and cracked hands galore. 


But, these aren't the extent of what I do. 



I get screamed and shouted at, punched and hit, but this is a profession I will never quit. 

Most times, the media portray nurses as people of error, creating a negative mental picture about the profession to the public. 


If they really know what our day details, how kind and sacrificial my noble colleagues are and how we strive not to fail. 


There are people above me and people below. 

I work closely with both  - without them, I could not do what I do well. 

I chose this profession and love almost every minute of it. 


I know I'm not alone and I appreciate all of the nurses who work alongside me. many of them have shaped me into the nurse I am. 


Someday, I will shape others into the nurse they would be. 


This wasn't my plan B, rather it was my plan A and I will gladly choose it over and over again.
