During the happiest, saddest and most challenging times, a nurse is at your side.
Imagine… the birth of a child, the resuscitation of a trauma victim or the death of a loved one… once-in-a-lifetime events for most, but everyday occurrences for nurses.
Now imagine… you, a nurse, holding a premature baby in the palm of your hand, holding a beating heart during open-heart surgery or holding the frail hand of a dying elderly man as he takes his last breath.
You can be that nurse!
