The Heart of Nursing
Nursing is more than just a job,
It’s a calling, a passion, a love.
It’s the heartfelt care you give,
To each patient you’re sent from above.
It’s the kindness in your soul,
And the patience in your heart.
It’s the joy you bring to others,
Even when their world falls apart.
It’s the tears you shed with them,
And the laughter you share, too.
It’s the strength you offer each day,
To help them make it through.
Nursing is a gift, a skill,
A calling, a work of art.
It’s the heart of what we do,
And it’s forever in our heart.
The Power of Touch
The power of touch is a nurse’s gift,
A soothing balm for those who shift
Between this world and the next,
A soft and gentle touch that reflects
The love we have for those in care,
The comfort that we freely share.
It’s the way we hold their hand,
The way we help them to stand,
It’s the way we wipe away their tears,
And ease away their fears.
It’s the healing we bring each day,
In our own quiet and simple way.
For a tender touch can bring relief,
To those who suffer in their grief.
So let us touch with love and grace,
In every precious moment and place,
For the power of touch can help heal,
And make us whole in heart and soul.
A Nurse’s Prayer
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
A nurse who brings hope and ease.
Grant me the wisdom to know my role,
The knowledge to heal, the heart to console.
May I touch each patient with love and care,
And offer them hope, in every prayer.
May I be a light in their darkest hour,
A comfort to those whose lives have turned sour.
May I stand strong in the face of pain,
And offer hope again and again.
May I treat each patient as I would wish to be,
With respect, compassion, and dignity.
Guide me with your loving hand,
And help me to understand,
That nursing is more than just a job,
It’s a calling, a passion, and a love.
The Caregiver’s Heart
A nurse’s heart beats steady and true,
With each day bringing something new.
She wakes up early, gets dressed with care,
And starts her shift with a silent prayer.
She enters the ward with a gentle smile,
And greets each patient with love and style.
Her hands are gentle, yet firm and strong,
As she takes vitals and checks all day long.
She listens intently to each concern,
And shows compassion at every turn.
She cheers up the sad, calms the distraught,
And with her touch, fear is swiftly fought.
She works long hours with little rest,
But it’s all worth it to do her best.
For though the work may be demanding,
Her heart is filled with love expanding.
She holds the hand of those who fear,
And wipes away each precious tear.
She is a beacon of hope and light,
Guiding her patients through the night.
She administers each medicine and pill,
And with her knowledge, she works with skill.
She is a fountain of knowledge and care,
And her dedication is beyond compare.
Each day she wakes, her heart renewed,
For she knows the work that must be pursued.
So she dons her scrubs and heads to the ward,
With her heart leading and her compassion adored.
The nurse’s heart beats steady and true,
With each patient she tends, and each life she renews.
For a nurse’s heart is generous and kind,
And it’s the heart of the healing mind.
