No man, not even a doctor, ever gives any other definition of what a nurse should be than this – ‘devoted and obedient’. This definition would do just as well for a porter. It might even do for a horse. It would not do for a policeman.
- Florence Nightingale-
If you’ve experienced the power of nursing, you won’t forget it. The wisdom, the skill and the dedication that nurses show every day, sets them apart as very special people. When a patient receives life-changing care, how can they possibly express their gratitude? For nurses, the ultimate reward is not a hefty paycheck or a bunch of flowers – it’s a patient’s well being.
