Fact of the Day: Nurse

The English word nurse came via Old French but from the Latin word nutrire which means "nourish" in modern English. The word nourish also comes from the same root word.

Hurray for nurses doing tough, thankless jobs day in and day out. It takes a special person to sign up for that job.

Mama wanted me to be a nurse. She even argued once that I could wear a uniform. hahahaha

I admire nurses greatly, as someone who has spent too much time in the hospital!
