An Acquaintance Makes A Rude Comment Regarding Her Profession While She Buys Groceries In Her Uniform.
It's been 18 years since Caitlin Brassington has been serving for the human's well-being. She's a nurse at the hospital and had faced many inhuman words but for the first time, something made her upset.
She met one of her friends at the grocery store and instead of greeting her, all she does was to comment upon Caitlin's profession by calling her 'just a nurse' as she was in her nurse's scrubs.
She decided to take a stand for her profession and all the other nurses out there.
#4 She Took Social Media's Help.
Caitlin began her letter saying, "‘Just a Nurse’. I am just home from a busy shift, looking very ordinary in my scrubs. On the way home today I stopped at the shop for milk and saw an acquaintance. She has never seen me in uniform and said that she didn’t [realize] I was ‘just a nurse’.
“Wow! Over my 18 year career I have heard this phrase many, many time[s], but today it got to me. Am I just a nurse?”
"I have helped babies into the world, many of whom needed assistance to take their first breath, and yet I am just a nurse. “I have held patients hands and ensured their dignity while they take their last breath, and yet I am just a nurse.”
#3 So What If She Doesn't Have Dr. Degree..
Her role is equally important and above that, she has 18 years of experience. She continues her letter, "I have [counseled] grieving parents after the loss of a child, and yet I am just a nurse. I have performed CPR on patients and brought them back to life, and yet I am just a nurse. I am the medical officers' eyes, ears, and hands with the ability to assess, treat and manage your illness, and yet I am just a nurse. I can [auscultate] every lung field on a newborn and assess which field may have a decreased air entry, and yet I am just a nurse.”
#2 She Can Be Guide As Well!
While she looks after the injured souls, she even takes the charge for educating people and training the fresh faces in this field. “I can educate patients, carers, and junior nurses, and yet I am just a nurse. I am my patients advocate in a health system that does not always put my patients best interest first, and yet I am just a nurse.”
She concludes her letter with the most subtle yet the most powerful words..Go ahead to read them!
#1 Do Not Overlook Her Sacrifices.
Never underestimate a nurse. She may not be a doctor as whole but is not any less. "I will miss Christmas Days, my children’s birthdays, and school musicals to come to work to care for your loved one, and yet I am just a nurse. I have the experience and knowledge that has saved people’s lives. So, if I am just a nurse, then I am ridiculously proud to be one!”
