I believe nurses save lives not only ‘on the clock’, but off the clock too. We are trained how to perform CPR to someone in cardiac arrest, to “stopping the bleed”, or simply knowing that a small sign such a droopy side of the face and slurred speech could mean this person might have a stroke. I have already been to Africa, and although I wasn’t trained yet being a nurse, I was able to see how I would DEFINITELY be able to use my skills in many countries, and to volunteer and help people. This is one photo I found that touches my heart as a future nurse (this is not me in the photo). This photo speaks to me, because Nurses go above and beyond their work “on the clock” to help others. Becoming a nurse will give me vital skills and knowledge to help people every where I go.
