I really felt welcomed and appreciated for the week to come. Other concerning things on the differential were motility issues, even though she had gastric motility testing come back normal, and colonoscopy with biopsy, despite being previously negative.

Health care careers like nursing are meant to be all about taking care of the ill and the hurt, to show compassion to others that need medical care.
