Looking for Inspiring
Nursing Poetry?

On this site, we have inspiring nursing poetry and hilarious nursing jokes to help you relax after a hectic or toxic shift. So as per request, I included nursing quotes as well.

I can still remember during my high school and college years, I used to write poems with themes from almost anything under the sun. But not anymore or so I thought. As a Nurse, writing some nursing poetry is both fun and inspiring.

To all very hardworking, understanding and joyful Nurses
- I dedicate to you this nursing poetry ...

“I am a Nurse, Anyway”

They may stare at you with anger in their eyes,
look at them with compassion anyway.
They might spit on you while feeding them,
feed and nourish them anyway.
They shout and ignore you when you talk,
talk and be with them anyway.

They can bite you when you tuck them in bed,
tuck them in to keep them warm for the night anyway.
They can slap you when you lean closer to listen to them,
hear them out anyway.
They can kick you while trying to jump out of bed,
catch them and keep them from falling anyway.

They may stain your favourite trendy uniform from incontinence,
wash and keep them clean anyway.
They may want to walk in the middle of the night while the rest of the patients are in deep sleep, Walk with them and keep them safe anyway.
They may consume your time by asking same questions repeatedly,
reorient them repeatedly and look in their eyes with a smile anyway.

They may share to you their past stories in the middle of your busy shift,
touch them and spend a fraction of your time anyway.
They may be quiet lying still in bed for hours with tears in their eyes,
wipe their tears and ask them their favourite stories anyway.
Whenever they have a severe cancer pain, give their meds then hold their palms tight and pray for them anyway.

Laugh with them when they are so happy (a good laugh from the heart).
Sing with them even though the lyrics are unfamiliar and old fashion.
Dance with them when they are so excited or just to cheer them up.

Write this in the tablet of your heart
They’ve been a strong, intelligent and beautiful
persons in their prime years and now
they’re approaching their final days…

In the long run, that’s why NURSES are called,
ANGEL of the Sick Room, Anyway.

by Sherrylyn Vergara – Vivero BSN, RN.

Faith in Myself

Outside my window a new day I see
and only I can determine what kind of day it will be.
It can be busy and sunny, laughing and gay,
or boring and cold, unhappy and grey.

My own state of mind is the determining key,
for I am only the person I let myself be.
I can be thoughtful and do all I can to help,
or be selfish and think just of myself.

I can enjoy what I do and make it seem fun,
or gripe and complain and make it hard on someone.
I can be patient with those who may not understand,
or belittle and hurt them as much as I can.

But I have faith in myself, and believe what I say,
and I personally intend to make the BEST of each day.


Famous Nursing Quotes

Nursing is an art: and if it is to be made an art,

It requires an exclusive devotion as hard a preparation,

as any painter´s or sculptor´s work; for what is the having to

do with dead canvas or dead marble,

compared with having to do with the living body,

the temple of God´s spirit? It is one of the Fine Arts:

I had almost said, the finest of Fine Arts.

by Florence Nightingale

To do what nobody else will do,
in a way that nobody else can do,
in spite of all we go through; that is to be a NURSE.

With helping hands and a caring heart, you bring so much to your work as a nurse… and you make a Wonderful difference.

-Anonymous -

There are talented professionals
who dedicate themselves to the care of others…
from the constant attention to patient needs,
to the sensitivity of the human spirit.

We call these people nurses,
and little can truly repay them
for their countless deeds
except, perhaps, our Thanks!

Nice work! It’s about time someone from our profession speaks out and do something about the dilemmas and concerns for IEN's here in Canada.

Valuable knowledge & forums. Very good for students
and even professionals.
(Renee, USA)

Hi... I really like ur site very much. Its the first of it's kind
that I have seen, dedicated solely to nurses and nursing profession. I am from Nepal, a small country in South East Asia. I am a
student nurse awaiting results
of final year of 4 years(BSN). Some of the experiences
that you shared seemed like our own and really touched my heart. I am happy that if I need some guidance, I can contact you, and am sure I'll get positive response. Your site is a blessing to all nurses (and others as well).
Keep up your good work!
(Elisha, Nepal)

These are great nursing prayers.
