Nurse's Week

Did you know it is national Nurse's Week?
How cool is that...
Some professions get a day, 
we get a whole week!

Nurses Week is celebrated annually from May 6th through May 12th, 
the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing.
Coincidentally, it also happens to be my birthday, so it's extra special!
{via}
I can't really imagine myself in any other profession.
It was fate that led me to become and nurse, a story for another day, and I haven't looked back since.
I feel really lucky to be able to do something I enjoy, and something that challenges me
while helping others, and making a difference in people's lives at the same time.
Happy Nurse's Week!

Happy Nurse's Week! I am especially grateful for nurses this week as so many of them took such great care of my dad while he was having his bypass surgery last week. Thanks to you and all the nurses like you who help people when they need it most!

Nurses week ROCKS... because they can either make or break a tough situation. I'm sure you're the type to "make" it cause I sense your compassion. But its sooo tough isn't it??? I couldn't do it. When my mom had cancer... the nurses MADE it tolerable... and gave us hope and happiness.
