How much do you make?

A great view on nursing from source: Unknown.

Somebody asked: “You’re a nurse?” that’s cool, I wanted to do that when I was a kid. How much do you make?”

The nurse replied: “HOW MUCH DO I MAKE?” …

I can make holding your hand seem like the most important thing in the world when you’re scared…

I can make your child breathe when they stop…

I can help your father survive a heart attack…

I can make myself get up at 5AM to make sure your mother has the medicine she needs to live…

I work all day to save the lives of strangers…

I make my family wait for dinner until I know your family member is taken care of…

I make myself skip lunch so that I can make sure that everything I did for your wife today is charted…

I make myself work weekends and holidays because people don’t just get sick Monday – Friday. Today, I might save your life.

How much do I make?

All I know is, I make a difference.
