"Making a difference in someone’s life is for me the most rewarding aspect of being a nurse. Giving individuals who are going through a challenging moment in their lives compassion, care, and respect is something I enjoy. One of the most rewarding feelings is recognizing that something as simple as my voice, touch, care, and attention can have a profound effect on my clients."
