For Nurses

If you can bring a special understanding
To all of those entrusted to your care

And meet their needs, no matter how demanding
With patience and energy to spare;

If you can lend each task your full devotion,
And always try to listen and to cheer,

If you can learn to understand emotion,
And comfort others just by being near;

If you look forward with anticipation
to meeting special challenges each day,

If you keep your faith and dedication
Whenever disappointment comes your way;

If you take pride in giving your profession
The finest skills and talents you possess,

Then all your dreams and goals will find expression
And, as a nurse, you’ll be a great success.
