Happy Nurses Month to All Those Nurses Who Touch Our Lives

CSI Caregiver Services, Inc. would like to take this occasion of National Nurses Month to thank all of our Nurses for everything you do without you we would not fulfill our Mission. We also would like to take this opportunity to share what it is like to be a nurse.

"When you become a nurse you know that every day you will touch a life or a life will touch yours." Author Unknown, (Quote Garden, 2008)

Each nurse commits to the core values of becoming a nurse which include human dignity, integrity, autonomy, altruism and social justice. When you choose the path of nursing, it is usually because you are a caregiver and it is a "calling" for you to pursue.

Expect to have aching backs and feet at the end of some days. Sometimes you'll help people rejoice over a new life coming into the world, and some days you'll shed tears with grieving families who have lost a loved one. You'll never be bored as a nurse. So if you're a kind and compassionate person who can learn to care for patients like you'd like to be cared for yourself, we welcome you to the world of nursing.

Some days when a nurse has had to deal with a noncompliant patient, an irate family member, or other healthcare workers who take their frustrations out on the nurse, they may feel like they have chosen the wrong profession. It is important to remember why you chose to be a nurse and remember the oath you took upon graduation.

"I solemnly pledge myself before God and in the presence of this assembly, to pass my life in purity and to practice my profession faithfully. I will abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous, and will not take or knowingly administer any harmful drug. I will do all in my power to maintain and elevate the standard of my profession, and will hold in confidence all personal matters committed to my keeping and all family affairs coming to my knowledge in the practice of my calling. With loyalty will I endeavor to aid the physician in his work, and devote myself to the welfare of those committed to my care." (Cybernurse, 2008).
