The Next Shift is a new series of stories written by experienced RNs to provide advice that can help guide the next generation of nurses.
The series is presented by The Johnson & Johnson Campaign for Nursing’s Future.
My daughter asked me the other day, “Why did you become a nurse, Mommy?” I remind myself of this all the time at work. My answer? I want to take care of others and help people any way I can. God has instilled this in me and has given me the abilities it takes to be a nurse. I have the pleasure of being a servant to others every time I clock in at work and fulfill my childhood dream.
