What does it mean to be a nurse? To go above and beyond the call of duty. The first to work and the last to leave. The heart and the soul of caring. A unique soul that will pass through your life for a minute and impact it for an eternity. An empowered individual whom you may meet only for a 1- or 2-hour period, but who will put you and yours above theirs.
As we celebrate International Nurses Day 2022, the theme being “Nurses: A Voice to Lead – Invest in Nursing and respect rights to secure global health.”, it is important that we value the people who are putting their lives on the line every day in order to keep the world safe from its challenges. The pandemic has shown, now more than ever, the value of nurses, the true respect they deserve and their importance in the field of medicine.
