“Save one life, you’re a hero. Save 100 lives, you’re a nurse.”
I am pretty sure that national nurse day was about half a day ago but it now international nurse day and I would love to celebrate because nurses are amazing.
In my life alone I know a few nurses, as well as a handful of people that want to become nurses. Within the past year, my mom got her BSN and started working as a nurse.
Needless to say, I have seen and am very aware of the amount of work becoming and working as a nurse is.
They truly deserve the most love, praise, and appreciation now more than ever before. But even when the whole pandemic has passed they still deserve an immeasurable amount of love.
So, today go say thank you to all of the nurses in your life. The ones in nursing school, the ones on the front lines at ERs, the ones across every spectrum of being/becoming a nurse.
They are doing the dirty and difficult work that so few people are motivated to do. See things that would make people faint, throw up, or break down.
They deserve love and appreciation, and a lot of it.
