It’s National Nurses Month, and it’s a time to honor and appreciate the work of nurses across the country!
Nurses play an essential role in healthcare, providing care and support to patients during some of their most vulnerable moments. This month, we celebrate their dedication, compassion, and commitment to the health and well-being of others.
They are often the first point of contact for patients and their families, providing emotional support and information about treatment options. Through tough times, they have been on the front lines, putting their own health at risk to care for their patients. They have worked long hours, and despite the challenges they face on the job, nurses consistently put their patients first.
What inspired you to become a nurse?
During National Nurses Month, we wanted to celebrate our Gifted Nurses and every element of their journey as a nurse. We asked them, “What inspired you to become a nurse?” and the answers, well, they were inspiring!
Read about some of our Gifted Nurses’ inspiration below.
“I became a nurse at the age of 54 after raising my family. The desire to become a nurse began in 1996 when my daughter was diagnosed with a rare heart disease and had a heart transplant. Throughout our journey, my daughter and I felt the calling to become nurses. We both achieved our goal and love caring for others.” – Janet G., RN.
“I was always interested in Healthcare, and I knew I wanted to help people. After seeing family members in the hospital at a young age, I saw how it works and decided it was for me.” – Kyle S., RN.
“At a young age, I knew I wanted to become a nurse. I chose nursing because it is rewarding to make a difference in someone’s life. We all go through our struggles, and to be able to be there and provide care, give comfort, and increase healing means all of the world to me.” – Kendra M., RN.
“I became a nurse because it is my passion to help others. I was born sick, and I saw what they did to help me. I either was going to love or hate the medical field, and I loved it. I am grateful to be in such a rewarding profession.” – Derek B., RN.
“I chose to become a nurse because of the joy it truly brings me to help others. The positive impact I have on my patients and their families, and the impact they have on me is very meaningful!” – Edith W., RN.
