When my team was short caregivers, I made sure that I spent more time with each patient to ensure they did not have anxiety about the change and end up worried and feeling alone. I found that a few minutes of companionship and
I was walking down the hallway of the hospital when suddenly I heard a patient calling out for help in a familiar language. As I walked into the patient’s room, I noticed a group of nurses trying to decipher her concerns communicated in her native Russian. Despite their efforts, she was still crying out for help. The language barrier hindered her communication with the nurses about her severe abdominal pain. Noting an opportunity to serve, I happily stepped in and translated between the patient, named Yekaterina, and the nurses.

A good nurse shows great care for their patients trying to get them back to good health. So many neonatal nurses save babies lives by just being there for them and treating them everyday so they can become a healthy baby and go home to their family.

Though I am early in my medical journey, and am willing to keep an open mind, it is only natural that I yearn to pursue a profession related to oncology.

The nurse came back with a big box, Mindi and her daughter had exchanged looks and Dunaway said, “This can’t be good.” Mindi agreed and just sat there nervously. The nurse smiled gently and gestured to the big box that she was carrying.
