About NursesPosted: November 18, 2012
Somebody asked: “You’re a nurse?!? That’s cool, I wanted to do that when I was a kid. How much do you make?” The nurse replied: “HOW MUCH DO I MAKE?” I can make holding your hand seem like the most important thing in the world when you’re scared. I can make your child breathe when they stop…I can help your father survive a heart attack. I can make myself get up at 5 a.m. to make sure your mother has the medicine she needs to live. I work all day to save the lives of strangers. I make my family wait for dinner until I know your family member is taken care of. I make myself skip lunch so that I can make sure that everything I did for you wife today is charted. I make myself work weekends and holidays because people don’t just get sick Monday thru Friday. Today, I might save your life. How much do I make? All I know is, I make a difference.
