3. “My feet feel like I’ve walked on pillows all 12 hours!”

4. “I would love nothing more than to answer your call light 15 times in 12 minutes. I have so much free time!”
Natalie B.

5. “Dr. So-and-so’s handwriting is SO neat and legible!”
Michele B.

  1. The truth is that there are some nurses that go above and beyond then just giving meds but the ones who work there, bum’s off are the aid that put in the hours, to get the job done…..so that the nurses, are able to make there med runs….I feel that as well should be spoken of, for the hard work they perform…Day in as day out…..The only, difference, n the two…..would be they have the authority to med, as well as call the Doctor’s…..for installation, on where and how they would handle and emergency…. without the CAN….. Certified assistant nurse things will be so much harder for the RN, LP……that being said let’s not take them for granted something to think about…..
    thank you
