This coming Saturday seemed a million miles away a year ago. I never thought I could make it one single day and now it has nearly been 365 days. I close my eyes and I can still feel the hollow emptiness I felt as I got in the car and left the hospital that night […]

A Gentle and Quiet Spirit – How to

I had a nursing student one time who didn’t have any interest in really being a nurse. She just wanted to make lots of money being a “medical expert” in trials. On a clinical rotation with the Director of Nursing at a local hospital, she walked into her office and pointed her finger at her […]
