Happy Nurses Week! Every year, I always reflect this week on my practice. Who I am and who I am becoming. I also use the time as a special reminder to encourage my colleagues. I would never trade being a Registered Nurse for anything. Its not only a privilege but a great challenge too. Stress is probably the greatest thing any of us will battle. Not only external stress, but the internal pressure we place on ourselves too of not measuring up or doing enough.
I’ve made it my mission to integrate more of what I believe about how are bodies function, that we are the sum of all our parts, and not just a diagnosis. Not every person wants the same thing, but every person has a story to tell. Their story, just like mine, has its own unique stressors and being present in the moment, with someone, is the greatest gift I can offer.
