Stories of Florence Nightingale’s compassion, bravery, and leadership have shaped modern nursing and influenced and inspired millions. As we celebrate the 200th anniversary of her birth, we are honored to shine a light on today’s #NurseHeroes on the front lines by sharing some of their stories.
This is Patti’s story.
“She is always going the extra mile to ensure everyone she encounters is treated with dignity, kindness, respect, and compassion.”
Describe why you chose to become a nurse.
Taking care of others is in my nature. It gives me great comfort to know that I have helped someone who is sick, injured, or dying.
Do you have any nurse hacks or lessons learned in the field you would like to share with others?
Practice patience, patience, patience… Even when we are overwhelmed, take the time to be patient and kind.
What’s a favorite quote of yours?
“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” – Mother Teresa
For those looking for a way to help others, is there a charity you suggest?
Thank you for all you do, Patti!
Thank you for helping us honor Patti and the profession of nursing, Jan. We salute you!
Do you have a story to share?
While our team at ShiftWizard believes all nurses are heroes, we’d like to hear who you feel has gone above and beyond. Help us honor a fellow nurse or nurse leader whose actions have inspired others in these unprecedented times, and let’s celebrate nursing together! Let’s also recognize the great work being done by the charities these nurses are championing, and encourage others to help if they can.
