My wish for graduating nurses

Graduate Nurses

May you all be graduates who care about those to whom you are ministering.

May you all be people persons who are empathetic and humanistic in your manner of dealing with those in your care.

May you not let call bells ring for countless minutes before being answered. May you administer prescribed medications on time.

May you not shy from unpleasant nursing tasks, hoping that others will attend patient needs that are distasteful.

If on the service desk, may you respond to calls made by anxious relatives.

May you learn to speak in modulated tones, remembering that the volume of noise generated by loud talking and raucous laugher can be very disturbing to patients.

May you be staff remembered with appreciation by those with whom you are dealing.
