It’s Nurses Week May 6-12 and it’s time to celebrate nurses all over the US with nurses week freebies, great deals, and discounts!
Nurses are one of the most trusted professionals according to this Gallup study. In fact, nurses have been ranked the highest in ethics and honesty for the 17th consecutive year now.
If you follow me, you’ll know that I am an RN. I work in the Surgical Trauma ICU and I’ve been there for over 7 years now. The job is both incredibly rewarding and equally exhausting.
Here is a beautiful song written and sung by ZDoggMD, titled “Always a Nurse”
She can cure with a smile, she can heal with her hands
And she can ruin your high with 0.2 of Narcan
And she only sips Snapple where JCAHO can’t see
She’s wise like a doc but she’s always a nurse to me
She can lead you to vax, she can calm you and teach you
She can ask for your med list but she’ll never believe you
And she’s got a side hustle loan interest ain’t free
Steal your pen like a thief but she’s always a nurse to me
No, she can’t care for herself, understaffing for months
She’s again overtime
Oh, and she never takes breaks and she never pees once
She just changes bed 9
And his patients want more than the Garden of Eden
And they still call him doc when he said he’s Nurse Stephen
Still he brings out the best a caregiver can be
Blame it all on yourself, a nurse ain’t always a woman, you see
Oh, they take care of you well, despite one nurse to nine,
Their license on the line
Oh, and she never gives out and he never calls in
They just coded bed 9
She is caring and kind when you’re suddenly cruel
He can smile and stay calm while you act like a tool
And unlike that Gwyneth, she’s earned her degree
And you love what you do although praises are few
Yet you’re always a hero to me
