Our Facebook Supporter Tribe contributed their nurse photos and lyrics for this, and they got to see it a week early! Come join a group that cares deeply about making healthcare better for all of us. I may be biased in my opinion, as I am a retired old RN, but that was the best song I have listened to, for a long time. Thank you, from the 4 things a nurse doesn’t play about her stethoscope her feelings her coffee and her pens shirt, bottom of my heart. To all Nurses, everywhere, have a fantastic and safe week. ZDoggMD, we love you. Thank you for seeing and sharing all that we do! I’ve been a nurse for over 20 yrs and an FNP for the last 8yrs. Your FB site has changed my life! I’ve recently taken time off and for the first time felt “burned out.” I never before as an RN believed in burnout for myself but, as NP things changed and I now had to fight directly to employers to take care of my patients the way I felt was only humanly acceptable.

As you talk about, it’s all about seeing triple booked patients in less than ten minutes most times. How do you tell a pt they have Ca in less than 10 mins? Well after some rough positions, I took a break to really evaluate if I wanted to continue being an NP because for the 1st time I felt like I couldn’t balance great compassionate care with triple booked schedules and organizations that demanded perfect scorecards and compliance with Medicare etc. Until I found and became a supporter of your site, I was seriously thinking of leaving nursing altogether-the one thing I thought I could never live without! Well, you reminded me why I fell completely in love with nursing and most importantly I’m not alone! Now I’m all fired up and ready to continue to MY “STANDARD OF CARE!” Thank you ZDOGG for acknowledging Nurse’s Day with such a beautiful tribute and helping me find my way back to what I love the most- caring for patients and being their advocate.

Love all of y’all! Happy Nurses Week. At least we can appreciate each other even when admin doesn’t. But that’s okay. Not our First rodeo! I’m married to the most amazing nurse. I couldn’t do what he does! Thank you, Z, for singing what we all should be saying every day. Thanks, Doc you are awesome! Made me think of a dear friend who was a mentor; Charge nurse in PACU 40 years, volunteered @ the Red Cross, did Vaccines for VNA up into her 70’s She now has Alzheimer’s & I am her co-conservator & she caretakes her dolls- life can be cruel! Wonderful tribute. I’ve watched this 3 times already and I can’t get through it without tearing up. The words are heartfelt and the 4 things a nurse doesn’t play about her stethoscope her feelings her coffee and her pens shirt, musical delivery is beautifully soulful
