Here are some of the most heartfelt stories of nurses going the distance:
Date night, it is!
A nurse from a hospital in California named Bernadette Steele found that one of her patients was feeling a little bit down. Given the fact that Valentine’s Day was approaching, she felt as though this man just needed some sort of romance, fit for the season, to cheer him up.
She, together with the other nurses, planned a simple, yet romantic dinner for the patient. Bringing the romance of the holiday to the comfort of his hospital bed where he was staying. What a good way to spend your Valentine’s Day, isn’t it?
Against all odds
We all know that we are at the mercy of bad weather. However, this is not true for Kris Johnson, a nurse from a hospital in North Dakota. Once, the snow was so bad that the road conditions made it unfit for driving and thus, many other nurses were unable to attend their shifts. However, Kris knew that the patients were in need of her professional care. Thus, she chose to face the odds and walked for miles in order to be able to tend to her patients.
In duty and in travel
