My Most Memorial Nursing Words of Wisdom
I remember the two nurses who have been most inspiring to me. They were friends and mentors to me in a time in my career where I needed it most. Those nurses are Michelle and Stacy.
The Wisdom of Michelle
Michelle worked with me on day shift right after I graduated nursing school. She had a dry sense of humor and had a high level of patience for all my questions and new-nurse confusion. She made me laugh and supported me when others were mean to me. She was a friend and mentor to me when I felt alone and outnumbered on the floor. She taught me many technical and time management skills, but more importantly she was kind to me when I needed it the most. The best wisdom I received from her was everyone makes mistakes and it’s more important that we learn from them.
The Compassion of Stacy
Stacy worked with me on night shift. When I was moved to the night shift (through no desire of my own) Stacy threw me a party to let me know how excited she was I was coming to work with her team. She is a patient and compassionate nurse and taught me more about being caring and empathetic than any nurse I’ve ever worked with. It is because of Stacy that I truly understood how to manage pain effectively. The best nursing advice I received from her was prioritize to always make sure that a patient never had to wait for things they needed.
I think of Stacy and Michelle and draw inspiration from them often.
