Student Nursing Memories - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak
In and out of focus, remembering when I was a student,
nursing here at St. Joseph's Hospital.
We had no computers, having to write everything down
into patient charts, making sure it was all correct.
Taking care of patients, wearing white stockings, shoes
and uniform dresses, were only allowed.
Our caps bobby pinned upon our heads with the color
stripe on it showing what school we were from.
Learning where everything was and how to use it, a great
learning experience, one that I enjoyed immensely.
Listening, doing procedures, being taught the correct
way to do things.
Tremendous responsibility taken seriously and done properly,
giving each other shots, learning how to do it right.
A wonderful experience all around, wanting to help those
who needed medical care.
To this day, doing what I can to help family and friends
in need of medical attention.
