    20 Things I've Learned From Nursing

    1. When you're 92, you shouldn't have to beg for the salt shaker, even if you do have congestive heart failure.

    2. Our profession has no room for bullies or whiners.

    3. Every day I've held a hand but forgotten to chart vitals, I still may have come out ahead.

    4. A good doctor is one who'll say, " I have no idea what's going on with this patient. Come help me figure it out."

    5. Nursing in the hardest and easiest thing I've ever done.

    6. Whatever I need in a hurry will be in someone else's room.

    7. Healing the spirit is as important as healing the mind.

    8. If I don't take care of myself, I can't take care of anyone else.

    9. A body believes every word you tell it.

    10. Time flies whether or not I'm having fun.

    11. A lot of patients get well in spite of us, but even more get well because of us.

    12. If I don't get emotionally involved with my patients, it's time for me to change professions.

    13. It's usually better to beg forgiveness than to ask permission, especially if I'm taking a St. Bernard to see a child in ICU.

    14. Professionals give advice but healers share wisdom.

    15. If I don't celebrate the exquisiteness of each day, I've lost something I'll never get back.

    16. Grief knows no rules.

    17. The more unloving a patient acts, the more he needs to be loved.

    18. Some things have to be believed to be seen.

    19. No one promises us tomorrow.

    20. If I can't cure, I can still care.

    James is 87, the sweetest of patients, one of nature’s gentlemen. Just the other day when I was giving James a sponge bath I stood him up next to the bed so I could wash his privates when he looked down and said, “Have you ever seen anything so big?”

    I didn’t know what to tell him. All I could think of was there was this guy down in Florida one time…

    But before I could say a word James shook his head and said, “My brother-in-law told me once that these have got to be the biggest damn feet he has ever seen!”

    “I remember the fear of realizing on the first day [of nursing school] that watching every episode of ER would get me nowhere.”

    You know you're a nurse when you look for mistakes in every medical show you watch.

    No one can argue against the fact that a simple “thank you” from patients can complete a nurse’s day. It’s a reminder that despite all their misgivings, they are still doing what they’re supposed to do at the end of the day.

    You know you're a nurse when you've eaten applesauce and graham crackers for lunch...from your medcart...cause you're busy.

    “One time when I had worked a double and came back the next day, I had very little sleep in between and was sooooo tired I fell asleep sitting on the toilet!”

    You can drink a pot of coffee and still go to sleep in the morning.
