The life of being a nurse can be both rewarding and challenging and all in the same day. We are honored to witness some of the happiest, as well as some of the saddest, times in a person’s life. This in itself can have an impact on us: We are human, with amazing hearts full of love, compassion and empathy. How we view these situations can shape our future both personally and professionally.
At HealthTrust, we are focused on ensuring that each of our clinicians have the tools, knowledge and support to provide an exceptional patient experience while working at our client facilities.
At some point in our life each of us will encounter a nurse, whether it be as a patient or as a loved one. And that one encounter can mean the difference between suffering and peace; between chaos and order. Nurses matter.
Being noble is defined as having, showing, or coming from personal qualities that people admire (such as honesty, generosity, courage, etc.) There are a few noble professions in this world. Caring for the health and well-being of others is certainly one of them.
Through the compassionate care of the nurses at Health First, a health system located in Central Florida, a mother who recently lost her son was able to receive comfort during her time of need. She wrote a letter that painted a picture of what nurses do every day.
This week, we celebrate National Nurses Week, shining a spotlight on the millions of men and women who care for others when they are at their most vulnerable. When illness or injury interrupts daily life, there is no one more important to a person in pain than a caring nurse. Not everyone can do this job, and we know that being a nurse is far more than a career choice; it is a calling—one that reflects a generosity of spirit that is unique to caregivers.
