A Lesson in Kindness, Kelly Maher Morrissey, RN, MSN:"The ED appeared relatively calm on Sunday morning as I arrived to work my 8-hour shift. I received report on two patients; both sounded clinically stable. One patient, Dominic,* was particularly memorable. Dominic was an 87-year-old man who had been transported from a nursing home to the emergency department (ED) at about 4 AM for symptoms including a 104F fever and chest congestion. He was evaluated, diagnosed with pneumonia, and admitted. During report, the departing night nurse indicated that Dominic was oriented to person only and had been agitated since arrival."

A Moment in Nursing, A Changed Life, Sharon Obelsky, RN, Nursing Spectrum:"Recently I was asked, “What has been your most memorable moment in nursing?” Many humorous moments came to mind. Of course being at all four of my grandchildren’s births was wonderful; however, the following story has really affected my whole life. I do not take for granted some things that I may have, had I not become a nurse and had this experience. As a long-time maternity nurse, I often hear, “Oh, maternity, that must be such a happy place to work with all those little babies to hold and rock!” For the most part this is true; I have always loved it and would not work in any other field of nursing. Except for other maternity nurses, though, few people know how terribly tragic it can be, to be working when there is a fetal death, or what it’s like to deal with issues of abuse, neglect, or poverty."

It's Like Going to Work in Your Pajamas, Bryan Lorber, RN, Real Vermont Nurse Stories:""Nursing gives you the opportunity to make a real difference in people’s lives while giving yourself a feeling of total satisfaction."

Livesaver Extraordinaire: From Firefighter to Charter Nurse, George Henry, Emergency Room Nurse, Real Vermont Nurse Stories:"Nursing has given me the freedom I enjoy and the excitement I want in a career." From transporting critically ill patients by ambulance to traveling the country caring for patients, George Henry has been on the move in his nursing career. He may have been destined for this exciting career path as a nurse. Ever since his high school days when he volunteered as an emergency medical technician and firefighter, George has had jobs that give that adrenaline rush of excitement. After working in the U.S. Navy as a medical corpsman in a naval hospital and on board a ship, he moved to Vermont and received his bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of Vermont."

This lifelong caretaker has seen it all and doesn’t get grossed out easily. So it is no surprise that nursing came naturally to Maureen."
