International Nurses Day: A nurse’s story about ALYN’s children

Four years of nursing school were not enough to prepare me for what I encountered upon joining the Warm Home ward at the ALYN Orthopedic Hospital and Rehabilitation Center.

My decision to become a nurse was formed over many years of nursing my own mother with her illness. I was familiar with the challenging, frustrating and painful aspects of nursing, both physical and emotional, and felt capable of overcoming the challenges that are part of this profession, knowing that I would thrive and be at my best in this occupation.
