With uncompromising honesty, Carol Gino strips the TV image to reveal the gritty truths of a nurse’s life, from it’s early, optimistic beginnings to the harsh realities – and incalculable rewards – that sustain her even in the face of a nurse’s greatest professional hazard: burnout.

A must listen to.....for anyone interested in the intersection of quantum physics and mysticism....oh, and the nature of God and why Nurses, not robots, should be doing hands on healing!

Judith Tuohey I am dumbfounded by this boy's intelligence and knowledge! I hope he is being charged and followed.
Isabelle Wiggins Worth listening to!!!!

Karen Cooper Lovely words Dr Mike, huge thank you from me and my colleagues who a lot of the time don't feel valued by Dr's. 👍💜 I believe one of the Doc's said 'nurses were his minions!' Lol Of course, he soon saw the error of his ways 😆😉
Helen Goode Thank you for admitting that. Most doctors would never be honest enough to say it even though it is the truth. Everyone who works in healthcare has their important part to play supporting each other and no one is independent.
Rachel E Sims A nurse saved our newborn son's life by catching something the doctor dismissed and bugging the doctor for two days until she agreed to run a test which uncovered a serious problem requiring emergency surgery! Without her attention and persistence our son would have some major handicaps or would not have survived.

Geraldine Kiely Ñurses are completely under valued. We could not do without them. They work so hard - too hard -12 hours a day. They are not Appreciated enough. No wonder they all go away once they qualify. Shame on the Government -they are to blame.!!!!
Wendy Stirling Great words doc. Ones nurses don't hear or feel very often. We are a team and none of us from the domestics to the matrons could do what we do without each other. Thank u for this public pat on the back X 👍🏻
Debbie Martinez Wow. Thank u Dorine for finding this for me. I didn't know MD felt this way. In the past we had to stand n give the docs our seat out of respect. It is all re the patient. Doctors depend on us as we depend on the CNAs
Ruth Marie Knauf Brewer Thank you for this post. So well said. It is encouraging for an MD to be so appreciative of the help a nurse brings to his success. And..IMO, it's quite rare to find a doctor who isn't likely to think of himself more like a "god."
Sonali Sequeira Nurses do a lot.When you are delivering a baby,they are the ones that stay by you all along and do all the unpleasant work.If it wasn't for them,we would not be having the great experience we usually do.Ofcourse I am not in any way saying doctors are not important,however,they both help in saving lives and giving you courage when you have almost given up.A lot of respect to both professions.
Coleen Taylor Bonnette So nice to be appreciated! I have had the privilege of serving the Vancouver, WA community as an RN the last 42 years and will be retiring in 5 weeks, but do RNs really ever stop caring for everyone around them? Had a very difficult time being the patient in the ED this past week as I wanted to help all those that looked worse than I felt. Thanks again. Your nurses are very fortunate to work with you <3
Steven Simpson Thank you Mike Ginsberg, all too often myself and colleagues feel so undervalued by some of the doctors we work with. I think anyone who works in healthcare deserves credit.
Pat Kingsley Appreciate the kind words. Wish more MDs realized nurses can be your best friends or we have ways of getting even. 😉 One thing I learned the hard way was never loan your stethescope to a Resident. He'll "forget" who he borrowed it from. Have your name (including the "RN") engraved on the scope in letters easily read from a distance. The MD will be too embarassed to be seen with it on his/her neck and one of your fellow nurses will see to it you get it back.
Lisa McKinney Empey oh wow! Very nice! thanks for sending me this Sarah Piper. Im here at work today on the New year holiday feeling good about what I do and so happy and proud to be a nurse!
Elizabeth Parker Tedesco Thank you Dr. Ginsberg! It means a lot to hear those words from a Physician with the years of experience you have! I had almost 28 years working in an ER and you meet a variety of Dr.s there. Often with a variety of personalities that you learn to deal which sometimes makes it more fun or it can make it difficult!!!
Sheila Yemm A very caring thoughtful Doctor to tell in detail, how important nurses are not just to patients but the Doctors as well. Thankyou Dr. Ginsberg on behalf if all nurses.
Kathleen Broderick Great description of what a Nurse is and only one of our duties. I loved helping and teaching other nurses, techs, families, patients and the new doctors. Residents, interns, etc. I always felt like we were on the same team, someone taught me!
Aggy Bailey From an RN from the UK to working in the USA, not knowing anything about heart sounds and being able to read an ECG... I am thankful for learning this on the US side and for alerting doctors to unstable rhythms .
Bob Kramer Thank you, You have no idea how much that means to hear someone say that. I loved my job till I retired after 42 years but I have wondered if it was sometimes worth the bilateral knee replacements and the bulging discs.
Judy Edmunds Thank you Dr Mike for being brave enough to be honest. More people (if that's what you call them) in the nhs should take a huge leaf out of your book. Respect sir x
Jo Chapman Thank you for this. I've worked with some brilliant Obstetriciens who became brilliant Consultants. You could tell the outstanding ones, they asked our opinions (us midwives) took that advice, acted on it and thanked us for our contribution. Having said that, they would have been daft not to have listened!
Cathy McGeechan Things have not changed since I was a senior nurse We the nurses did go to Drs aid many times and it is so nice to hear it is appreciated at the end of the day we are all on the side of the patient eh!
Ann LaRue Puffpaff Thank you, Dr. Mike Ginsburg, for your kind words for our Nurse's. They deserve so much credit for helping the doctors and the patients. What would we do without your dedication to all of us. Thank You! 💕💕💕
Margaret Rowcroft After recently being in hospital for an emergency op I can wholeheartedly agree with everything you wrote.Doctors get the majority of praise. I believe that nursesshould get just as much , if not more. Thank you for drawing attention to the nursing profession.
Vicki Day Many thanks to this wonderful educated man to be so appreciative. We ALL depend on one another. As the nurse...especially at night but still today I am updated by the CNA, MOA, and I hope I do and did let them know how much they information they gather is important.
Sherree DeYoe Thank you for your words. I have workek with some really appreciative doctors, and others who thought they were better then sliced bread. As a nurse we see all sides of all people whom help carw d

The Cutting Edge of Nursing--
There should be a special degree for nurses—RN’s, LPN’s, who choose to work at the bedside. Those nurses who have experienced the healing in really listening to patients and noting the changes in their psychological as well as their physical well being.

Beauty is not as trivial as you think it to be: One can get stuck in suffering and that can prevent growth. under angels you'll find Rashana's says...:) With love.

Rashana's Magic Garden Ok. Got it!! Can't fence Pegasus either. Or consciousness. Or imagination. I liked his face. And thought his hair would serve. But the message is the same.
Michelle Mazur That's a pegasus not a unicorn. Although I'm sure you can't fence either one lol.
Lisa Sierra PEOPLE HAVE TRIED THOUGH! (Highlight the word TRY!)😉💯

I just found a piece from my journal on how my love for Nursing intersects with my love of writing. I thought you'll might be interested......Like being a nurse and taking care of those people who are dying heightens my senses and the way in which I perceive life, writing...
