Vickie Milazzo's Thoughts for Success

Thoughts for Success: To Be Touched by a Nurse Is to Behold Humanity at Its Best

My love story with nurses started decades ago and I’ve been inspiring nurses with my mantra “We Are Nurses and We Can Do Anything!®” ever since. It’s true, registered nurses can do anything – after all we save lives by making split second decisions that often mean the difference between life and death.

Thoughts for Success: To Be Touched by a Nurse Is to Behold Humanity at Its Best

That single fact is more than enough reason to celebrate #nursesweek, but today, I’m not stopping here. There’s also another reason to honor registered nurses and that reason is one of my favorite Thoughts for Success, “To be touched by a nurse is to experience humanity at its best.”

Nurses treat all patients without regard to skin color, economic status or political viewpoints. We see only a fellow human in need. All patients are created equal in the eyes of a nurse. Yes – even those who believe in stupid notions like #nursesplayingcards will be treated with humanity by a nurse.

During these tumultuous times, with polarizing divides on every subject being stronger and more prevalent than ever, I propose we celebrate not just what nurses do, but who we are. Just imagine – if people approached each other with the spirit and openness of a nurse, what a more successful planet this would be.

Happy Nurses Week. I love nurses!

Success Is Yours,

P.S. Comment here and wish your nursing colleagues Happy Nurses Week.
