  • [ – ] theoldsparrow reply I had a friend growing up whose mom was a neonatal nurse. It probably is the most emotionally affecting and hard job I know of. She would cry every time a newborn died. It's something that I know I don't have the strength of heart to do.
    • JessicaMartwin parent reply I don't have to heart to work with children. It is just way too sad to see sick children. The nurses that are able to do that are very strong and amazing people. They have my respect.
  • [ – ] JustABloke reply As a patient, any nurse is more than just a nurse. Just a smile is all it takes to take that fear away, they seem to understand you as a human being. I have a lot of respect for all the staff in the hospitals.
    • JessicaMartwin parent reply I also respect all the staff in the hospital. Each and every employee in the hospital is vital to the well-being of the hospital.
  • [ – ] HeroicVillain reply Nurses are the friendly trolls of the medical world.
  • [ – ] Flying_Purple_Pizzas reply I have no memories of being in a hospital for myself but I have been in the hospital for my wife, who has had some physical issues. The nurses have all been great! We have met many, many nurses and sure some are more outwardly friendly but all of them were professional and caring. It's a vulnerable time to have to be in a hospital and the nurses help make it less stressful. We'd see the doctor for a few minutes a day but the nurses were there constantly, doing the little things, checking up on the situation, providing help. They were always the most positive part of the experience. I don't agree with many of the practices of the medical institutions, but I haven't had a bad experience with a nurse. You do get to meet a lot of different people in that job. Granted, you meet them when they are not at their best, but I think that generally creates a stronger connection. I'm glad you found a vocation that works for you so well! Did Sarah continue with the nursing option? I don't remember...more if you mentioned that. Your new dresser looks really nice! It looks like a tall one. I'm thinking your t.v. is feeling safer about now. Great vlog, as usual!
    • JessicaMartwin parent reply Thank you for sharing. It is really great to hear that you have had such positive experiences with nurses. It is crazy how much of an impact they can make. I also don;t agree with many health care practices but they nurses make it better, or at least I think so. I have met so many great people in nursing school and I feel like I have made a positive impact. Yes, Sarah is in nursing school here. She is a few years behind me because she moved to Alaska to be with her husband a few years ago. But, they have great schools here so she can continue her education. It is really nice. Free things are great, for the most part. I feel a lot safer now that my TV is not stacked on boxes. Thanks :D
  • [ – ] GunDoctorTV reply Nurses are very important and I think you're going to do great!
  • [ – ] SurfersSelfies reply nice video :)
  • [ – ] USUandS reply Sometimes reflecting on older videos to see how much you've grown is always interesting and this may be one of those videos for you, once you're much farther into the job field you want to be in. Even if it's just a glimpse, it could be a time stamp of your thoughts, perspective and life before working. Honestly could not do what you're doing. I know plenty of people working in hospitals and have tons of admiration for the great things they do for others. Just as a quick example, the nurse who I usually have when I go see the dentist makes the whole experience for me that much better. Calm, caring, always looking out for my best interest and just a great person. Just based on your vlogs and reasons for working, it feels like you're destined to make tons of people's lives better.
    • [ – ] JessicaMartwin parent reply Oh wow, thank you so much for sharing. That is a really great point. Who knows, my dream job might be completely different in a few days, months, or years. There are so many great people that work in the healthcare field. A great nurse can make a world of difference. When I was in the hospital for my hip surgery I had an amazing nurse and she really made the experience much better. Thanks again
      • [ – ] USUandS parent reply That is true, things change sometimes. It's still pretty cool you found your calling though and are pursuing it. I'm sure just thinking about that surgery and literally putting yourself in her shoes is great to think about. But good luck regardless! Very happy things seem to be coming together :)
