Like many helping professions, nursing can be emotionally and physically draining. Nurses literally save peoples' lives, often in stressful situations and with little sleep. A person of faith who chooses this career will often be dealing with life and death, caring for sick brothers and sisters in distress, alleviating pain, calming fears of family members, and providing comfort. With a salary that in no way near matches the importance of this work, nursing tangibly mirrors God's love.
