Local nurses provide so many benefits. People sometimes forget that local nurses are people too, not just local nurses. Local nurses provide care for the sick, the elderly, family members, and strangers. Local nurses are always on the ready in the event an accident happens. Local nurses put their own lives at risk by stopping at accident scenes to help victims. Sometimes the victim is still conscience, and in a state of shock because of the accident. A local nurse will try to calm the patient, call for medical assistance, evaluate the situation, and make decisions to what is best for the victim. Local nurses do everything from bandage scraped knees to holding pressure on gaping wounds until other medical supervision arrives. Local nurses practice at different locations. Some local nurses work at clinics, some local nurses work at hospitals, some local nurses work at schools. Local nurses usually work twelve hour shifts, some of those at night, some of those during the day. Local nurses have to make sacrifices with their family also. Local nurses have to miss their children playing sports, they miss family events, they miss holidays at times, and they miss family time. Local nurses are willing to make those sacrifices because they know that the job of a local nurse goes far beyond what is seen by the general public. Local nurses make good livings to provide for their families and their children. Local nurses are available to friends when the friend has a medical question. Local nurses are always at the ready to lend a helping hand.
