Ours is a profession that denies us of going to the toilet whenever necessary but we are good in teaching kids how to perfectly train their bladders. We teach people the value of health and nutrition because we cannot practice what is right and we already know how detrimental it could be; allowing hunger to pass without eating will burn your intestines while savoring much on preserved foods despite its easy availability is a big no-no either. We are with our patients while they are going through phases of pain because we are very well able to handle our own; always ready to render a heart-warming smile and a gentle-healing touch, putting all our worries aside whenever we put on our dainty uniforms. We are very familiar with our own calendar too; a self-made calendar which does not consider holidays or weekends, a constant reminder that we have to spend every possible moment with our beloved every time we could. We are good in taking care of others, we get all uncomfortably sick but we keep it to ourselves, at times we are almost at the brim of losing what and who we love because it would either be we are too busy to take time or too tired to care.
The day we chose nursing, we already put ourselves aside for the lives of others.
So never ever regret being here, ours is a profession that only the people with tough hearts and strong minds can handle. God would have single-handedly hand you your license if He could.
We are here because someone took the time to choose us, to bring us here.
We are here because God knows for sure that we can. Because He trusts us in taking care of all the people He love.
It is a vocation. God chose you.
