Have you ever wondered: “What are my gifts? What exactly is God calling me to do with my life?” Although the profession of nursing can provide a comfortable income, it is more than just a salary. Eternal rewards are reflected when a nurse aids in the alleviation of a patient’s pain, leads a dying patient in a prayer of salvation, or has the opportunity to assist in the welcoming of a new life into this world. I challenge you to keep your heart and mind open to this possibility for your life as you:
It is my prayer that as you read this book, you will search your heart, cultivate a deeper, more intimate relationship with Jesus Christ, and close the book knowing whether God is calling you to this incredible, humbling profession called nursing. Never forget we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.
