It’s true. Nursing is a work of heart. It’s also a work of hearts working together. In life, we encounter some of the most influential people where we work, no matter if they are our colleagues, supervisors, or simply those people we come across from time to time.

Is there an influential figure in your nursing career? Someone who has helped you get to where you are today? In a comment below, tell us about that person and you will be automatically entered to win a $100 Amazon gift certificate as part of our National Nurses Week celebration!

On behalf of all of us at Sunbelt Staffing, thank you for your hard/heart work, nurses!

The person who helped get me where I am today was my daughter! I wanted to show her that she didn’t have to be a waitress all her life, that with perseverance and work, she could be someone that people looked up to- a nurse!

I went into nursing after losing two cousins in their early 40’s, one to a massive HA, one to a brain aneurysm. I was already married with children of my own when I went first to LPN schooling, then eventually RN. While finishing for my RN, my father was suffering from and eventually lost his battle to cancer. As I was still in school during this time, I marveled at how well and caring the nurses were with my father. It was then that I truly knew I had chosen the right career to help others just like the oncology nurses did with my dad.

Nursing takes a special caring person and I am so proud of my Granddaughter Brittany Eaker who knew from the time she was 12 years old she wanted to be a nurse. She went on to college and while in college she was even paid a small amount by the college and by the people she helped tutored while she was in college. She worked part time when she was out of college before sessions. She has even won small scholarships from hospital and a patient at the hospital family because she was so loving and caring for a dying young person. She works hard and any time the hospital needs an extra person or someone to fill in she always makes herself available. Trust, this takes away some quality time she could have with her new husband/and family but she goes when she is needed and not just when she wants to. She fulfills a love for the patients and is loved by them. Not only is she a beautiful woman on the outside but on the inside where her heart show it. Brittany is a new young nurse, but deserves to be where she is now and is also working for her PA Degree. Her Grandma Lila Perkins is very proud of her and wants her to have a wonderful Nurses Week.

The person who has influenced me the most in my nursing career would be my mom, Randy Reed. She was a stay at home mom who was a school volunteer, took us to dance, soccer, baseball or any other activity. She raised me to be a strong, independent women. Her and I went to nursing school together, she graduated when she was 45 and is the strongest, most compassionate nurse I know. She encouraged me and pushed me through school and continues to be my biggest supporter as I continue to grow and learn as a nurse, mother, person, daughter and friend.
