Nurse Prayer - Unknown Author

Dear Lord, Grant me the Serenity
to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
and the Wisdom
to hide the bodies of those Doctors
I had to kill because they pushed me too far...

Happy Nurse's Week

Nurse's Week 2014

Nurse's week is coming up pretty soon, May 6-12th. Get pumped!

What is Nurses' Week, you may ask?

Nurses' Week occurs every year to celebrate nurses! Yay! The week coincides with Florence Nightingale's birthday (May 12th), who as you all should know, helped to establish nursing as a profession. Nurses' Week is supported by the American Nurses Association. It is time set asside to take notice of nurses, celebrate their role in society, educate the public on the role and profession of nursing, and to give us presents! Neat!

So during that week I plan to post daily about nurses. Stories. Poems. Pictures. eCards. Your comments, stories, and encouragements are very much appreciated.

Today's Letters {Nursing Edition}

Dear Kam, last night you brought me "shower cookies." Only my true love would know how much I love eating Thin Mints while washing the day's C.diff & other people's stool from my skin!

Dear patient with end-stage ALS, your sense of humor astounds me. Although you can't talk & can't move, you still found countless ways to make fun of me during my shift. I am inspired to be a more positive person. Thank you.

Dear stethoscope, I am still learning how to use you, and I think you are playing tricks on me. Either way, you make me look like a fool when trying to listen to the lung sounds of my patients. Please stop changing the way you go into my ears.

Dear 10-hour-shifts, why do you exist? Why do you call yourself 10-hours, when it is actually 10.5? Why not just be 12 hours and get it over with? I was intrigued by you before, but now I find you annoying.

Dear Mr. Toews (who gets two letters), thank you for volunteering to sleep in our walk-in closet on nights I have to wake up early. Your dedication to making my shifts the best they can be is amazing. [just know you never have to sleep in the closet]

+The idea for this post came from one of my favorite blogs called Today's Letters+
