We are coming to the end of “the week of the nurse” and I have come to the end of another week on service on the pediatric floor.
It is embarrassing to me that I don’t ALWAYS stop to thank the nurses I work with for their bravery.
What? Bravery? What’s that got to do with nursing?
Nurses give out medicines, tend to patients’ and parents’ needs, and carry out doctors’ “orders” RIGHT? Well, yes, but there is so much more, especially on a pediatric unit (and probably on adult units as well, but I can only write about what I know).
So this post is dedicated to the dedication and bravery of our pediatric nurses and the wonderful things they helped me and the rest of the health care team do this past week.
