The reason nursing appealed to me, especially emergency room nursing, is that when somebody has probably the worst day of their life — they’ve almost died or been in a car crash or been severely injured somehow — I get to be a good part of that, to be the thing that changes for them. It was kind of a calling for me to be the calm in the storm. I want to be the kind of nurse where when someone looks back and says “I remember the day Grandpa almost died of a heart attack, and how awful it was, but that nurse made it so much easier to get through the day.”  I’m not the nurturing kind where I want to just rock babies all day. I like to stop the chaos and get some order back, and say “OK, yes, this terrible thing happened to you. Let’s fix it together.”
