The nursing profession has much to offer those who pursue it as a career. Often it’s just the satisfaction of helping and serving in a position vital to a community.
The demands of the job are many and varied. Patience, understanding, calmness, friendliness and not the least of all, extensive medical knowledge.
Often patients fail to give esteem toward nurses and their precious work because they are distracted by pain, fear and maybe even money concerns.
This lack of acknowledgement can create difficult moments for nurses. Many nurses who leave the field cite this lack of esteem as a primary reason.
Having uplifting work, and the esteem of those whom they serve is a recipe for building strong self-esteem and ultimately happiness.
