My name is Cory. I am a mom, a wife, a NaNa, and a critical care nurse that lives in Nashville, TN. I have found my calling in ER/Trauma/ICU. Each day I find myself experiencing life changing events and hope that by reading my posts, you will experience and feel some of what I do. If you read nothing else, please
take time to read "The Hardest Question Ever Asked". It's my very first posting.
And if for some reason you think you see your story here.....you don't. It's not about you or anyone you know. =)
This is an e-mail I received from one of my readers who just graduated and is aspiring to be a Trauma Nurse. (posted with permission) I had to share it because it really touched me. NOT ONLY the last sentence, but the fact that THIS is the type of person who needs to be a nurse, who our society needs to be a nurse. There needs to be more compassionate, caring, and quick thinking nurses out there! Way to go Brittany! You will be an AWESOME Trauma Nurse.
I'm starting to get some stories as well =) I thought about you the other day (sorry if that sounds weird!!). I was saving people all day!! lol... it started off with my little brother who fell and landed on some sharp rocks... i never knew i could run that fast!! He was perfectly fine.. only one small bruise and some hurt feelings but besides that everything was in perfect condition. Then me and my mom were walking along the mini shopping center when a man just collapsed in front of us!! Once again, i never knew i could run sooooo fast! (lol) I was scared when i thought about working in trauma because i know that you have to think fast on your feet.. but now, im even more excited because in those situations, everything came so naturally... like instinct. The man was fine as well... just a little embarrassed. I will admit, i didn't do much at all but check to make sure he was ok and check for cuts of course =), but i walked away with the best feeling in the world. This career is absolutely for me and im so excited to graduate and get started on it. Thanks for making me realize what exactly i want to accomplish after high school. In my eyes, you are the BEST nurse in the world and i pray that i can be the best just like you! =)
