To be a nurse is not easy. You are at the beck and call of the patient and most of the time because they are not feeling well, nurses bear the brunt of abuse or complaints. Albeit all these, they pick themselves up, cheer themselves up and tends to another sick patient till the day or night of their shift work. Dealing with patients involve a lot of patience and understanding. Some countries are short of nurses in the care industry. Nurses play a bigger role in the care of the patient and they are the first ones in the hospital or clinics that provide the image for the organisation. An impatient one will only turn their patients away.
Nurses' Day is celebrated widely by many countries on the 12 May, the birthday of Florence Nightingale.
