Today was National Nurses Day. A day to honor all the nurses who have made a difference in your life. I love being a nurse and I feel lucky to have had such a wonderful career that I absolutely love. I enjoy being part of someone's life and making a difference. I became a nurse in 1986 and I have worked in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Johns Hopkins Hospital since then.
1986 Nursing Graduation
I have met some amazing families in my 24 years as a nurse at Hopkins. My first primary patient was a 24 weeker and she has since graduated from college. I love to receive cards and emails from my parents to update me. I have lost some babies over the years as well but have attended more birthdays then funerals.
Hug a nurse today!
