Nurses go to care.

Mary Stahl, AACN board member, shares her personal experience with her colleagues.

The story

"The nurses on our unit became the family she didn't have. The patient had made poor choices in her life that contributed to her being in our unit for four months. She was difficult at first, yet we became fond of her and were very sad when she died. It's easy to feel instant affection for some patients. Others are more of a challenge. As nurses, we know that everyone deserves not only to be cared for, but also to be cared about."
