I don’t blog much about my life as a nurse because it would be unethical of me to share personal stories from work (nor do I want to) and because my health care facility is extremely sensitive towards social media.
Nevertheless, I do have a story of a lifetime that I would like to share with you. Okay, it’s not really a once in a lifetime story, nor a Cinderella story but here goes. When I turned thirty, two years ago, I didn’t really feel old. But today, what is it that makes me feel old? The 10th year anniversary of my nursing profession. TEN YEARS! When I think about it, it really does seem like a lifetime ago.
Reminiscing my life as a student nurse, I found it really difficult to watch blood, incisions, surgeries or even the gory scenes on TV. And seeing a child being given birth to was very much the same as seeing a dead body for the first time. It was really shocking for me, especially seeing that the umbilical cord was blue (and wondering if the baby would be okay). I never imagined what a dead body looked like. Much to say, like everyone else, I was thinking of changing my profession.
However, eventually I survived nursing college and I found my specialization and passion in cardiac nursing.
I believe that anybody can become a Registered Nurse (RN) but not everybody is going to be a nurse.
Thus, I am here today to wish all dedicated nurses a Happy Nurses Day. Thank you to all nurses, especially now for strengthening the efforts to combat the global corona virus pandemic.
