Nurses do more than most people realize, they have no time to mourn every patient's death because there is always someone else who is going to need their full attention. Some may say nurses are heartless, I know I did. To be a nurse is to be mentally strong. Based on my personal experiences I have come to see that American nurses are amazingly strong. Are You Okay?

  • Rewarding In Nursing

    The most rewarding part of nursing is to be able to help people as a career. However, it is not always as nice as it sounds to be.
