What people are saying ... 

My Perspective as a Nurse

"I can only speak from my perspective as a nurse, we have a huge not only responsibility, but privilege of being there in every aspect from birth until death. And we spend so much time with these families and patients. And I think that if this area of umm spirituality or whatever you wanna call it was actually taught as a possibility to nurses and to physicians, gosh, we could make such an impact on medicine, on nursing, on ... We would be so much more caring as individuals in our practice. Because really, I mean, we're here to try to heal people, but we're also here to try to help people with whatever they're going through whether it be birth, sickness, a laceration, or death. That's what we're here for."
