Honestly I love this line of work. You get to help others. You get to be a person that they see and put a smile on there face. My grandmother was a Nurse before she passed away and I guess I just followed her foot steps. You have to be kind and warm hearted and most of all have compassion. Some days in this line of work might be better than others but your there to care and basically treat them like family as well. Some have worse situations than others but you try your best to make them feel comfortable and happy as possible in any kind of situation. I like being that person to bring them happiness or joy even when there feeling down or going through something.
