Short Takes: Narratives by Nurses – What I Love Most About Nursing


As part of Johnson & Johnson Campaign for Nursing’s Future, a group of nurses were asked a series of questions and in recorded their own video responses. I was honored to be asked to participate in the promotion of nursing. I’ll refrain from making this another post about the fantastic things that Johnson and Johnson are doing, but I will say that they honor and uplift nurses and for that I am very thankful.

These are the 2nd in the webisode series in which nurses where asked “What do you love most about nursing.” You’ll find the answers below. I encourage you to share yours with us in the comments section below as well.

Again, I ask you to share with us:

What do you love most about nursing?


Full disclosure: I have not received any compensation from Johnson & Johnson to write this post. I was blessed by their generosity and received a scholarship to blog world expo where I was able to connect with talented and dynamic individuals in the realm of healthcare social media. They did not request I write this post, and I am doing so of my own inclination. I truly feel that Johnson & Johnson do great things for the nursing profession. In my humble opinion they have done more to promote a positive image of nursing to the general public than any other organization. I am proud to share with all of you the positive messages they have to share with and about nurses.

    I consider being a nurse over 35 years to be the BEST possible work I could have chosen. While I worked in nearly every are of Hospital nursing, my passion was Labor and Delivery. After an injury that would not allow me to do this work anymore, I realized what I loved most was helping someone at a time that they believed they could not do what they needed to do (have a baby) and not only got them through it, but helped them be there own shero! I have transferred that skill to other ways of helping women. A few years ago I reregistered for my license on-line and accidently forgot to push send. I was unaware of the mistake until my next registration. When I realized what happened, I cried for months, not because I still needed the license for my job, but because I felt stripped of one thing that was SO important to me. I recently completed an RN refresher course and am again registered in my state! I am so proud to state that I am an RN! Leanne Meier

    Awesome! I loved seeing the person behind the scenes! I’m so glad you were chosen, loved your reasons for nursing and variety is also one of favorites! I haven’t switched roles yet from an inpatient nurse but I’m sure the day will come someday to find a new purpose for my skills! Thanks for sharing :)
