Nursing has long been called a selfless profession, where Nurses care for many ill individuals, nurturing them, comforting them, keeping a watchful eye for complications and acting accordingly. Nurses are there for births, and they are there at deaths. Nurses are there to offer a hug for your joyful moments, and to offer a hug when the moment is filled with grief, anger, confusion. It is said that when someone is going through a storm, your silent presence is more powerful than a million words, and that is often where you find Nurses, standing in the storm with their patients, weathering it with them.
Mahatma Ghandi said that the best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others. Nurses continually give of themselves in the service of others, and the wonderful Show Me Your Stethoscope Nation of Nurses is no exception. Over the past several years, SMYS members, with help from our partners at Healthy Villages, have organized international medical mission trips to provide nursing and medical care to thousands of under served people in Ghana and Haiti. This Nurses Week, and always, we are so proud of these selfless nurses and their dedication to making the world a better place.
