“I was privileged to be holding the hand of a woman at the time of her death who was a Nazi concentration camp survivor. As I clasped her hand I noticed the tattoo on her forearm. I couldn’t imagine what she’d been through during that time. It’s unfathomable. She, thankfully, passed away by natural causes at the ripe old age of 89 very, very peacefully. I’ll never forget that.”
- Angela K. Kiddle RN
“As a hospice nurse, I had a patient describe a dream in which he was in heaven and I was with him. He voiced such gratitude that I was there. A year after his passing I received a letter from his daughter telling me how much my time with her father meant to her and her family and the memories and ease of grief that I gave them.”
- Mendy Simmons R.N. CDS
“When a former nursing student comes back and thanks you because they feel you helped them get to where they are in that point of their career.”
- Anita L. McGlynn MS, RN, CNE
“Looking into the eyes of a nineteen-year-old as he was dying. Him asking me, “Am I going to be alright?”. Me assuring him he was when we both knew he wasn’t.The bullet had knicked his aorta.He bled out before anything could be done.He needed his mother.I played that role for him. I was the last thing he saw before he died.”
- Janet C, RN
“I was a very new RN, working in a teaching hospital, on the orthopedic trauma floor. I had two pts in traction in one room. I recall walking past the first, to go hang IV antibx in the next bed. I walked past the curtain only to interrupt my patient and his girlfriend in a very compromising position. I remember saying “uh, you can’t be in his bed” and exiting quickly. I was so embarrassed… it was also my first needlestick. Couldn’t remain steady while hanging that IVPB… one too many piggy backs in that room that day!!”
