    There is much discussion about why people leave the field of nursing and how the field of medicine is broken and seems to be getting worse in many ways. Why do you stay a nurse? Just for the money to support the lifestyle you have grown accustomed to, because you still care about your patients and feel you are doing good, you don’t feel qualified to do anything else … why?


    My clients are like family. You don’t just walk away from family. I love my job and the reward is not in the paycheck (if so I would starve) it is in each smile, hug, and “thank you” I receive.


    I stay as a nurse because I have worked to hard to get where I am to do what I love. I still get excited to come to work even if it means dealing with politics.


    I totally agree with you. No matter what politics are occurring my residents and family members keep me striving for excellence. In nursing you must be armed with a heart of compassion driving you to gain every skill necessary to deliver the best care.
