I am a registered nurse (BSN) and a board certified emergency nurse (CEN). I have been in nursing for 35 years and an emergency room nurse for 21 years. I am also a wife, proud mother of two sons and a cat lover. I see some people who identify themselves as nurses on Yahoo Answers being less than compassionate. Some of them are downright rude. I would hope they would remember why they went into nursing in the first place. Give me the intelligence, intuition, and knowledge to Assess. Give me the reason, rationality, and understanding so I may Plan. Give me energy, agility, and tenderness during Implementation. Give me the wisdom, perception, and fairness to Evaluate. Most of all Lord, give me Patience, Compassion, and Kindness for all people.
