A prison nurse:
Walking back to the control bubble, I felt like a nurse in the Wild West, nursing on the edge. No longer shaky, I felt like a gun-slinging sheriff walking though town after killing an outlaw.
"Nursing in the Big House" - Sara Stassen
A home care and hospice nurse:
Suddenly I was possessed with the urge to literally turn my head to the sky and say, "If you let me keep my daughter I promise I'll give you something back." My desire to become a nurse had finally decided to announce itself.
