Nurses--An Acrostic

Nurturing and caring men and women

Understanding and hard working

Respectful of privacy, it's a must

Sometimes difficult, usually rewarding

Encouraging to the ill and their families

So compassionate to our patients

    I have had surgeries in my life and I always have very much appreciated them. They are extremely special. Most recently, I made a special trip back to the hospital and left a huge cake and other items to show my appreciation. As a result, the supervisor of the nurses called me personally to thank me! Great Poem!

      Well thank you. Even though I am one, I appreciate nurses too. Thanks for your comments!
