What we LOVE About Nursing

It’s February, the month of LOVE! Whether you celebrate Valentines Day or chalk it up to being a cheesy Hallmark holiday, love is always something to celebrate. We’ve decided to compile a list of quotes and sentiments that show exactly what we love about our jobs!

If you missed our staff Q&A check it out here, where each nurse breaks down what they love about their job.

Let’s get started!

To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived, that is to have succeeded. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Living daily with the awareness that everything you do helps people lead an easier and healthier life is the greatest reward for a nurse. In nursing, success is not measured in money or promotions. Success means to be able to help at least a soul in need.

Our job is to love people. When it hurts. When it’s awkward. When it’s uncool and embarrassing. – Jamie Tworkowksi

Awkward interactions and embarrassing situations are very common in nursing, but our goal is to make all our patients feel comfortable, secure, and cared for.

Care for one, that’s love. Care for hundreds, that’s nursing.

Lost in the current doom and gloom of the pandemic, is the heart of why we chose a career in nursing. There is an immeasurable reward that comes with caring for others when they need it most. The deeply meaningful impact in helping patients lead healthy, happy lives.

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others. – Mahatma Gandhi

To lose yourself in the service of others takes great courage and strength, it’s not easy but it comes with the job and keeps us moving forward.

From our Nurses on Demand family to yours, we hope everyone has a Happy Valentines Day and feels the LOVE!
