You might be a nurse if you firmly believe that “too stupid to live” should be a diagnosis.
Whether a person is a male or female, a nurse is a nurse.
The trained nurse has become one of the great blessings of humanity, taking a place beside the physician and the priest….
Nursing would be a dream job if there were no doctors.
Nursing is an art: and if it is to be made an art, it requires an exclusive devotion as hard a preparation, as any painter’s or sculptor’s work; for what is the having to do with dead canvas or dead marble, compared with having to do with the living body, the temple of God’s spirit? It is one of the Fine Arts: I had almost said, the finest of Fine Arts.
If Christian scientists had more science and doctors more Christianity, it wouldn’t make any difference which you called in – if you had a good nurse.
Finley Peter Dunne
Constant attention by a good nurse may be just as important as a major operation by a surgeon.
