For those of you who might not know I am a Nurse and today, where I practice we had a Nurse Day celebration. It was a beautiful affair. The guest speaker was Karen Scipio-Skinner, ED-BON. Her comments were inspiring, encouraging and humorous. She encouraged us to get back to caring not just for our patients but for ourselves as well. We must all take time to smell the roses. I left the program refreshed and focused. I want to take this opportunity to encourage those studying in the field and those contemplating the profession. Come on we need you. There is currently a nursing shortage and you will help fill the void, and to congratulate the millions of Nurses, CNAs, GNAs and other support staff on a job well done and to encourage you to continue caring for the masses and take care of yourselves...society needs you, the unsung Heroes of the medical profession.
