I get in my car never knowing
What to expect for the day
I have seven patients to see,
3 labs, 2 wounds, and all to assess
Where do I start, with what patient,
Whatís next

This day will be an obstacle, a journey,
A mess

I am a home health nurse

A knock at the door, a smiling face I see
Good morning John
Arenít you happy to see me?

I am a home health nurse

I tote my computer, my labs, and satchel
Loaded down from head to toe
But for my patients
I consider this no hassle
For them there isnít anything
I wouldnít do, lord knows

I am a home health nurse

An assessment is completed,
Labs drawn, med box filled
John is feeling well today
With a little more care and prayers-
He will be healed
I pack up my things and Iím on my way

I am a home health nurse

Eight hours later, the seventh patient,
Little Mrs. Way...
She is so cute,
So fragile and thin
I save her for last so we can talk
For the rest of the day
For with nursing, you always win

I am a home health nurse

Mrs. Way is doing fine, so lonely is she
But for when I leave today,
It is her I will miss
If only I could take them
All home with me As I walk out the door
She gives me a hug and a kiss....

I am not just a home health nurse .

To all student nurses and nurses alike who have the privilege, daily, to engage in and be part of, the healing process of humanity.
