Power

While the doctors will do most of the life-saving, you certainly have a hand in it as well. In addition to healing your patients’ bodies, you are going to be making their hearts and souls feel mended as well with your kindness, consideration, and compassion. While doctors rush in and out like their hair’s on fire, you will often be able to take a few extra minutes and really connect with people, to make them feel more at ease about their plight. And when that doesn’t work, just give them another shot of morphine. Mmm...power.
