Episode 10 — Nursing: Where Passion Meets Purpose
Nurses often say that in being a nurse, they are doing what they were born to do. We know it takes a special person to be a nurse, and while every nurse goes through standard education and training, every nurse’s journey is different — is that what makes each nurse so special? Our nurses shared with us what sparked their passion for nursing and each journey will inspire you.
When those they are caring for may not be at their best, our nurses are there to “be the best part of their worst day.” How do they do it–what keeps our nurses going? When we ask our nurses this question, we see common themes in how they do it – how they continue being the best nurse they can be – and it’s the people they work with, the people they serve, and their own support systems. The feeling is mutual, Mission Health nurses — you keep Mission Health going every day.
