The Heart of Health Care

nurseGreat nurses gain great reputations and we all know what a vast difference they can make when we are celebrating a birth or anticipating a death, and any illness in between. Here are some great quotes regarding these angels of the first-responder team.

“She opens her hand to the poor, and reaches out her hands to the needy.” —Proverbs 31:20

“Nurses are the heart of healthcare.”
—Donna Wilk Cardillo

“Constant attention by a good nurse may be just as important as a major operation by a surgeon.”
—Dag Hammarskjold

“The trained nurse has become one of the great blessings of humanity, taking a place beside the physician and the priest.”
—William Osler

“Nurses: one of the few blessings of being ill.”
—Sara Moss-Wolfe

“To do what nobody else will do, a way that nobody else can do, in spite of all we go through, is to be a nurse.”
—Rawsi Williams

“Panic plays no part in the training of a nurse.”
—Elizabeth Kenny

“Nurses may not be angels, but they are the next best thing.”

You can’t serve people to the degree that most nurses do and not display a number of Heavenly qualities. We can all learn from these servants and be challenged by their level of commitment and care.

GENTLE HEALER, give me strength today for my own service and teach me to care as You do.

A daily devotion fromstrength for service
