Share your best Moment / Story / Anecdote as an RN:
My first heart transplant. Seeing someone cut out a human heart and just leave an empty cavity inside a chest is always impressive. Seeing them take a stranger’s heart out of a 6-pack cooler and sew it in is even better. Amazes me every time we can do that.
Quote/Lyric/Line that sums up Nursing For You: “You can keep complaining or we can keep working, your choice.”

Alarm goes off, try to break it. Fail. Get to work, find my OR, gather the team, then do 100 things at once until we’re done. Usually succeed.
