If I had one nurse in particular that I can think of as being a caring and strong individual that is dedicated to the nursing profession and helping others, I would definitely choose my cousin Mary. She is a nurse in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at a hospital in PA. She is a mom of three wonderful kids, amazing wife, one-of-a-kind nurse, and she does it all with maintaining her own health issues. She was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in her late 30′s and still continued her night shifts, managed her home and work life, as well as learning about how to manage the challenges of these new health issues she was dealing with. I don’t know a more dedicated, caring, and wonderful person and nurse than my cousin. I hope she knows how appreciated she is as a NICU nurse.
