As with many things in life, Nursing isn't what it used to be. People's expectation for a 'free service', have never been more demanding. More demands, less finance, less staff = less Health Service. The service is being run a lot on good will. But, seeing a90 yr old lady, make her own way to an appointment and being thankful, was one of the nicest moments recently.
Being able to help someone at a stressful time in their life and be thanked, is the best feeling.
Undervalued generally by a lot of society.
