Stethoscopes, blood pressure cuffs, medication administration, pain management. All of these are an integral part of a nurse's daily career. But it goes deeper than that, much deeper. Nursing is the privilege of ministering to people in their most vulnerable time, giving of yourself to meet someone's need that they can't meet. Just think of the satisfaction that will come from helping one of your patients deal with a diagnosis, helping them to understand the big picture and what their treatment options will entail. Being a nurse requires excellent critical thinking skills as well. A good nurse is not only sympathetic to the patient's needs, but also able to respond with a cool head quickly if necessary.
