See if you agree with our list, and then share your favorite quotes with fellow readers on our social media pages:

“You are not just a nurse; you are my nurse. You have changed my life because you have cared about me.”
-- “Patient Joe,” as told by Kelley Johnson, RN, during the Miss America competition

“The travel nurses spending the holidays working away from home, you are the true adventurers.”
-- Aaron Moore, MSN, BC-RN, “Ask the Expert” blog on

“Behind every good a hallway full of blinking call lights she just answered.”
-- Nicole Killey

“The public puts their trust in nurses, and it’s not surprising. Patients are usually in a very vulnerable situation when they encounter a nurse--especially in a hospital--. When you trust your life and intimate moments to someone, it requires that nurse to convey that they can be trusted to protect them, keep them safe, advocate for them and care for them.”
-- Pamela F. Cipriano, Ph.D., RN, NEA-BC, FAAN, president, American Nurses Association

“For the next three years, I’m your mama, and your mama knows when you’re crying, lying, or dying.”
-- ER Head Nurse Jesse Santiago to new residents on CBS’s “Code Black.”

“I attribute my success to this: I never gave or took any excuse.”
-- Florence Nightingale

"I have depended on the wisdom, guidance, support, and nurturing of nurses the entirety of my career as a surgeon … and it's time that a nurse joins my core team of medical experts. The same wisdom and passion for healing that is so critical with patients should also take place on our stage."
--Mehmet Oz, MD, host, “The Dr. Oz Show.”

“It’s a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together.”
-- Unknown

“If you are already a nurse and looking for a new experience that can also benefit your career, then consider becoming a travel nurse. You can learn new practices and practice in a variety of clinical settings, all the while getting paid well (while staying in free housing), and having the opportunity to experience a completely new culture.”
-- Adam Stamper, “Get Paid to See the World: 12 of the Best Jobs that Combine Work and Travel,”

“One must work and dare if one really wants to live.”
-- Vincent Van Gogh
