In honor of Nurse’s Week, Renown Health Chief Nursing Officers Jen Richards, PhD, RN, and Melodie Osborn, RN, BSN, MBA, share what inspired them to become nurses.
Everyone has a story about why they became a nurse. Some nurses wanted to follow a family member’s footsteps. Others were inspired seeing nurses in action. Some simply wanted to make a difference in another person’s life — and many of us can’t imagine doing anything else with our lives.
There are many reasons for becoming a nurse, but many of us share a love for the same things about our job. Caring for others. Putting people at ease. Advocating for patients. Being present to offer a smile or a hug. Touching lives.
