reBlog from Nursing Notes

I found this fascinating quote today from Shirley Williams over at Nursing Notes regarding Nurses Week.  I think she speaks for many of us. Follow the link to read the entire article:

What I want instead of trinkets is a voice.  I want to have some say in how I do my job and how I care for my patients.  I want to be respected for my knowledge of my patients’ and their families’ needs.  I want to have the right to say, “I can only take care of 5 patients today because two of them are critically ill and will need constant attention.”, Nursing Notes, May 2010

You should read the whole article.
