Abraham Lincoln
“Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country's cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as he best can, the same cause.”
Abraham Lincoln

Wendell Berry
“I took her into bed with me and propped myself up with pillows against the headboard to let her nurse. As she nursed and the milk came, she began a little low contented sort of singing. I would feel milk and love flowing from me to her as once it had flowed to me. It emptied me. As the baby fed, I seemed slowly to grow empty of myself, as if in the presence of that long flow of love even grief could not stand.”
Wendell Berry, Hannah Coulter

Marcus Sedgwick
“I'm just a girl in a nurse's uniform, but that doesn't mean I know how to save these men, and they- they are men in uniforms, but that doesn't mean they know how to die.”
Marcus Sedgwick, The Foreshadowing

Clara Barton
“You must never so much think as whether you like it or not, whether it is bearable or not; you must never think of anything except the need, and how to meet it.”
Clara Barton

Tilda Shalof
“The hospital will never be healthy for patients if it's not a healthy environment for nurses, where their voices are heard and where they can care for their patients and use the full extent of their knowledge, abilities, and skills. After all, hospitals today have become one big intensive care unit: all patients need intensive caring.”
Tilda Shalof

Monica Dickens
“Nursing is a kind of mania; a fever in the blood; an incurable disease which, once contracted, cannot be got out of the system. If it was not like that, there would be no hospital nurses, for compared dispassionately with other professions, the hours are long, the work hard, and the pay inadequate to the amount of concentrated energy required.
A nurse, however, does not view her profession dispassionately. It is too much a part of her.”
Monica Dickens

Erica Eisdorfer
“...For having a baby's sweet face so close to your own, for so long a time as it takes to nurse 'em, is a great tonic for a sad soul.”
Erica Eisdorfer, The Wet Nurse's Tale

Jenn Bruer
“Helpers carry a heavy load, they listen, love, cry, and often go into the depths of others’ pain. They sometimes enter darkness that no person should have to step into: the darkness of the abuse of a child, of mental health, of our cultural propensity to sit back and do nothing about it. They bear this each day.”
Jenn Bruer, Helping Effortlessly: A Book of Inspiration and Healing

Jenn Bruer
“Slowly you may have transformed from a helper to one in need of help. It’s important to talk about this, to identify the wounds you carry.”
Jenn Bruer, Helping Effortlessly: A Book of Inspiration and Healing

Vera Brittain
“Four impressionable years spent in a number of very different hospitals convinced me once for all that nursing, if it is to be done efficiently, requires, more than any other occupation, abundant leisure in colorful surroundings, sufficient money to spend on amusements, agreeable food to re-establish the energy expended, and the removal of anxiety about illness and old age; yet of all skilled professions, it is still the least vitalised by these advantages, still the most oppressed by unnecessary worries, cruelties, hardships and regulations.”
Vera Brittain, Testament of Youth

Jenn Bruer
“Have you ever stopped to contemplate how you might respond biologically, physically, emotionally and spiritually to the various experiences in your life? Is it possible that your thoughts become your biology? I believe wholeheartedly that they can.”
Jenn Bruer, Helping Effortlessly: A Book of Inspiration and Healing

Jenn Bruer
“Each of us wants to fuel our bodies and walk the earth with health and energy, to honour the vessel that takes us through life. We have allowed food, of all things, to divide us. Food is meant to bring us together. Food is celebratory, nourishing. Our world needs less conflict and more “live and let live.”
Jenn Bruer, Helping Effortlessly: A Book of Inspiration and Healing

“Find current LPN programs in Arkansas. See our list of accredited Arkansas LPN schools that offer LPN training classes.”
Nursing Staff of the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital at Stan

Jenn Bruer
“As you move through this world advocating for what you believe in, do it with love and an open heart, not with anger and a closed heart.”
Jenn Bruer, Helping Effortlessly: A Book of Inspiration and Healing

Jenn Bruer
“I now know that surrendering, allowing, and “BE-ing” is far more productive than grasping for control. I don't know why one child is born with autism and another isn't, or why some children have to fight cancer and some don't. I have lived long enough to know that life is not fair, never will be fair, and we shouldn’t expect it to be.”
Jenn Bruer, Helping Effortlessly: A Book of Inspiration and Healing

Jenn Bruer
“Dig deep, past the pain of knowing you failed or that you could have done things differently and past the temptation to self-loathe. Live in the pain of the mistake, notice your ego's attempt to protect you by justifying your mistake or blaming another for their part in a situation. We must go deeper into ourselves, to tap into the wisdom that resides underneath our mistakes.”
Jenn Bruer, Helping Effortlessly: A Book of Inspiration and Healing

Steven Magee
“The realities of nursing are that they work in environments which are typically filled with toxic air, toxic light, high levels of radiation, and potentially deadly infectious agents.”
Steven Magee

Romalyn Ante
“I will be the first one to greet you, Welcome back.
Even if I know you’d rather go.”
Romalyn Ante

Jenn Bruer
“So, while I knew what burnout was, I never thought it would happen to me. Even-keeled and rarely stressed out, I perhaps thought I was superwoman and nothing could break me. Burnout carries a stigma as a sign of weakness and since I am not weak, I think my young helper mind couldn't reconcile how burnout could come knocking at my door.”
Jenn Bruer, Helping Effortlessly: A Book of Inspiration and Healing

Jenn Bruer
“Letting confusion get in the way of changing your diet and lifestyle will deter you from facing the reality of how hard it is to give up sugar. If you’ll forgive the expression, I am not going to sugar-coat it: sugary drinks, donuts, cake, cookies and candy are out. And there’s no “okay in moderation.” What does that mean: once a week, once on the weekend, only on holidays? It probably doesn't mean Friday after work until Monday morning!”
Jenn Bruer, Helping Effortlessly: A Book of Inspiration and Healing

Lucilla Andrews
“We get used to seeing the patients ill; even used to them dying. When they do we get upset if we know them. We can't get upset for those we don't know. We have to forget them. We'd all have nervous breakdowns if we didn't.”
Lucilla Andrews, My Friend the Professor

Steven Magee
“COVID-19 has turned nursing into a very risky occupation.”
Steven Magee

“COVID-19 has swept through 75% of nursing homes in Stockholm, Sweden.”
Steven Magee

“Why is it that the U.S. government doesn't reward public servants by allowing them to live tax-free?”
James Thomas Kesterson Jr

Romalyn Ante
“Jump there with me - on top of the stretcher, the man between your legs, your hands pumping his heart. Do not fear the clatter of wheels, the bumps and slopes in corridors. It is only turbulence.”
Romalyn Ante, Antiemetic for Homesickness

“My hope is that by sharing my story, along with the continuing adventure to gain some sense of equilibrium, those of you who have also survived violence won’t feel quite so alone on your journey. A community of survivors is a brave place to start the healing process, and sadly, for many, that community is difficult, if not impossible, to find.”
June Zanes Garen, Hey! I Could Use a Little Help Here! My Story of Healthcare Workplace Violence

“Milk is food for the beginning eater. A gulpable essence distilled by the mother from her own more variable and challenging diet.
