International Nurses Day 2010

Right now there is a nurse helping a woman become a mum, 

a nurse holding the hand of a dying man, 

a nurse inserting an IV in a child, 

a nurse listening to an Alzheimer's patient tell a story,
a nurse missing their family while caring for yours. 

As you read this, nurses all over the world are hard at work doing a great job that cannot be measured by the money they earn. It's not a glamorous job. It isn't highly paid. What makes it worth doing is the people we care for and the thanks we get from from their families. Today is International Nurses Day. If you know a nurse make their day by telling them they are doing a great job...
