Beinga person of integrity, means to be honorable before the eyes of humanbeings while honesty means being truthful in your line of duty andlife experiences. I treasure honesty and integrity as they areimportant principles in my life. Being honest as a nurse means a lotto the patient, that one day I will serve. My line of work involvesdealing with people directly both emotionally and physically. As anurse I have to be truthful and of moral character at allcircumstances while at the same time giving hope to the people.
Oneday we had a chance to get into the school drug store, some ofclassmates suggested that we take some drugs. At first I was afraidto question their actions. But I thought whether what we were doingwas right and cautioned them, eventually they left thee drugs butthey called me names. Integrity and honesty have a price I wasridiculed by my friends by doing the right thing. To me integrity andhonest are two things I treasure yet my friends at that moment saw meas uncool and I forgive them too for their immaturity. To some peopleintegrity and honest might be their enemy while to others theirtreasured life principles.
Asa nurse, doing my best means sacrificing all I have to serve other inthe best possible way. When a nurse works in the night while peopleare a sleep to make sure a patient gets well, hope and a give familymembers of a patient a reason to smile that is doing their best. Whena nurse sacrifices his/her personal life to ensure that a patientdoes not die or suffer and the patient receive the best medicalattention, that is a nurse doing his/her best. I only need,collaborative job mates, to believe in myself and my God and use theeducation I have learned well to be the best I can.
