Being a nurse is no easy task. It’s demanding, overwhelming, exhausting, and heart breaking at times; yet I love what I do. Yes, there are aspects of my job I hate (changing people’s diapers, emptying commodes or an ostomy, working night shift and holidays) but the good definitely outweighs the bad. I like knowing I’m helping someone heal and hopefully brightening their day while they’re recovering. Sometimes I might be the only smiling face they see for eight hours so every time I enter a room I try to remember that.
There have been times where I’ve questioned why I went into nursing in the first place since it’s so hard to get a full time job and having to work 24/7 sucks but any time I hear a patient compliment me on a job well done or tell me how I’ve made them happy I remember why I really do love my job. I absolutely adore the floor I work on at the hospital. We work so well as a team and we’re all bonded by our love of this field.
In honour of Nurse’s Week, here are a few hilarious nursing meme’s I found online! Hope you enjoy! And if you’re a nurse I hope you have a very happy Nurse’s Week! You deserve it!
I would love to shake the hand of whoever made these because I swear this is exactly how I look in all these situations!!!
