“Being a grey nurse is not automatic. It takes going through some rough situations and learning from them. It means gracefully accepting constructive criticism and allowing it to make you a better nurse. It means checking your ego at the door. It means caring about the big picture. It means knowing and acknowledging the fact that while this may be just another day at work for us, it is a profound time in our patients’ lives, and our needs are not the priority.”
“My prayer for you is that you become one of these nurses. These nurses not only save lives, but also profoundly affect each patient they touch with their blessed hands. My prayer for you is that you believe in yourself enough to do both the mental and emotional work to get there.”
“You know how people say nothing can prepare you for children? Well, nothing can prepare you for your first experience changing a bedbound 300-lb patient who cannot move, and is covered in feces and urine in a small, non-ventilated nursing home room. Nothing.”
