As a nurse I am ALWAYS given opportunities to educate people on various things. Note I say educate, not give medical advice because that is totally out of my scope of practice and I need my job to pay my bills.
When I started caring for my little patient in her home over a year ago, I never thought I’d grow to love it so much. She’s such a special little girl and her family has become my own as well. I even have my own shelf in the refrigerator. That’s bad ass.
Today I fulfilled a part of my duty as a nurse by being an advocate for my patient and her family.
