Nurses Are Always “On Call”

Nurses are always on call

Had to do a nursing intervention in the parking lot of my gym earlier in the year. I saw a woman with her elderly dad, unstable on his feet and down on one knee. She was struggling to get him up and panicking. I went to their assistance and helped her to get him into their car. After thanking me, she looked me square in the eye and said, “Are you a nurse?” I smiled and said, “Yes, I am.” She then asked me some questions related to getting help for her father at home. Talk about fieldwork! The whole incident reminded me of why I‘m a nurse, and I was so glad to be there when they needed me.
