Dear Nurses,

Thank you. For doing what you do, and for doing it even when understaffed, exhausted, and set upon on all sides by the assembly line machinery of Healthcare 2.0.

Thank you. For living up to the ancient Latin meaning of your chosen profession’s name, to nourish. Even when you yourselves go hungry on a shift with no breaks.

Thank you. For standing up for those who are most vulnerable, even when you are so tired you can barely keep upright.

You are a gift for which we doctors are eternally grateful. Even if we all-too-often are pretty terrible at showing it.

You are appreciated.

Love,

PS: Just hold out a little longer. Healthcare 3.0 will come if we work together, and it’s gonna rock.
