Found this poem on the Internet...very well written.
Being a Nurse MeansYou will never be bored
You will always be frustrated
You will be surrounded by challenges.
So much to do and so little time
You will carry immense responsibility
and limited authority.
You will step into people's lives
And you will make a difference.
Some will bless you,
Others will will curse you.
You will see people at their worst
And at their best.
You will never cease to be amazed
At people's capacity for
Love, courage and endurance.
You will experience resounding triumphs
And devestating failures.
You will cry a lot.
You will laugh a lot.
You will know what it is to be human
And to be humane.
