“People often say to me that I must have a hard job but I feel like I have the most rewarding job I could ask for. I feel very privileged to care for the patients I do. Being able to make a difference in just a small way makes my job every bit worthwhile.
I have met some wonderful patients and their families, that have let me into their lives to care for them at such a precious time. I feel very honoured and privileged. They have made me the nurse I am today.
