I Am A Nurse, What Is Your Super Power?

Education Poem Uncategorized  I Am A Nurse, What Is Your Super Power?
I am a nurse, what is your superpower?
 I am a nurse, I am not your waitress
 I am a nurse, I am not your servant
 I am a nurse, I am not your drug dealer
 I am a nurse, I am not your punching bag
 No one said it would be easy but 
 I put everything I had in it
 I pulled my hair back
 I stayed up late to read everything twice 
 Not for myself but to save you
 A nurse is not what you do, 
 It’s what you are.
 I am a nurse it’s not what I do, it’s what I am
 I am the first to work, and the last to leave
 The heart and soul for caring
 A unique soul where will pass through your life for a minute
 and impact it for an eternity
 I am an empowered individual who you may meet
 For only a 12-hour period, but who will put 
 You and yours above mine
 I care for people when they cannot care for themselves
 I am a shoulder you cry on
 infact I am a cheerleader
 A nurse is not about the pills or the charting
 It’s about being able to love people when they 
 are at their weakest point
 Being a nurse isn’t about grades
 It’s about being who we are,
 No book can teach you how to cry 
 with your patient
 No class can teach you how 
 to tell their family(ies) that their parent(s) died or are dying
 No professor can teach you how to find dignity
 in giving someone a bed bath
None can teach you how to do an orthopedic bed
 None can teach you how to do a cardiac bed
 None can teach you how to do an occupied bed
 None can teach you how to do an unoccupied bed
 None can teach you how to wash your hands medically and surgically
 None can teach you how to do what a nurse can do except a nurse
 THAT’S WHY AM A NURSE
