Dan Rather once said "The dream begins with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called truth." In nursing education it is necessary to teach students to analyze the truth before them, while remaining ever cognizant of the unique needs of each individual. It is through careful assessment and planning that nurses provide compassionate care that heals their patients mind, body and soul. I feel very blessed to be in a position which helps guide students on their journey to become nurses.
