“It would not be possible to praise nurses too highly.” — Stephen Ambrose
It truly is impossible to overstate just how much nurses do for their patients. Whether it’s in a hospital, doctor’s office, surgery center, school, call center, or the comfort of a home, a nurse is so often the main caregiver for patients. Whether it’s providing treatment, giving education, keeping patients comfortable, or giving emotional support, nurses really do it all in a wide range of settings.
Nobody said nursing was easy though, which is why a positive attitude is one of the most effective qualities any nurse can have. As a result, there are a wealth of quotes out there by and about nurses that are just as funny as they are inspiring.
Read on as we share a sampling of some of our favorites.
