�In August of 2012, I lost my boyfriend to leukemia. I can truly say that being here with him in the hospital showed me a whole new perspective and has changed me as a nurse. I've learned to be more understanding, informative, and caring. Putting myself in the patient�s shoes really helps me be a better nurse. I am inspired every day to try and make the stay of the patients and their family members the best and most pleasant I can make it. Keeping them informed and listening is very important. I always picture someone I love in the hospital bed while caring for patients.�
