This week my cousin sent me a message late at night on Facebook. She’s a nurse and had just experienced her first patient who coded on her. Needless to say it was a traumatic experience and she was reeling from the experience. I’m not sure how much I helped her, but I tried to show some empathy and at least be there to listen to her in her time of need.
This experience reminded me of what a challenging job it is to be a nurse. We certainly don’t show them enough appreciation. With this in mind, it seemed fitting for this Fun Friday post to share ZDoggMD’s “Dear Nurses” parody of Tupac Shakur’s “Dear Mama.”
A big thank you to all the nurses out there that make healthcare great and don’t get nearly the recognition they deserve.
