21 Affirmations for Nurses

Nurses work tirelessly for all of us when we are facing a medical situation in our lives. I’ve spent my share of time in hospitals and doctor’s offices over the years. Most of the nurses I’ve met are people committed to helping others.

Here are some affirmations for those of you have chosen this vocation.

  8. I am compassionate to patients and families.
  9. I never allow a patient become just a number.
