Many of us dream about finding a job we feel passionate about. About finding a way to make a difference in the lives of others. About finding our “calling” the same way most nurses find theirs.
For Nurses Week, we embarked on a special project that would both recognize and honor the women and men who have found their calling. They care for us when we are sick. They hold our hand and comfort us, support us, and pray with us when our loved ones are sick.
We asked 100 Beacon nurses to tell us why they chose this noble profession. This collection has reached more than 20,000 people on social media. As you click on the photos below and read their stories, most nurses describe a sincere desire to help people. But we asked them to dig deeper and share personal stories. We hope you they give you a glimpse into their work and their caring hearts.
