"...We might be the lucky one who gets to provide the care..."
Tiffany Lightfoot, Nursing Student
TranscriptJesus says in Mark, "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick." People don't come to nurses, doctors, or therapists because they are well. They come because they are hurting and need help. We are here as healthcare workers to help them. Everyone will experience hurt and suffering at some point in their life. We might be the lucky one who gets to provide the care during that time. Jesus's life is structured around broken people who he helps. As health care workers, we need to follow Jesus's life as an example in our careers. It is easy to forget that we are caring for human beings and someone else's loved one. We need to treat each patient with dignity and respect, no matter the circumstance. It is our job to heal in many different ways. Healing may be all that is needed. Acceptance and love should be exemplified. We are here to make this world a better place.
