A stable’ ‘head’
On responsible shoulders
Equipped with knowledge To counsel
And serve mankind!

Two strong, comforting ‘Hands’
Full of dexterity and skill
Ever ready to serve,
To support, to nurture,
Nourish and heal the sick!

And A ‘heart’ of gold
Full of mercy, compassion and kindness
Ready to empathize,
Understand and console
Irrespective of creed or status!

Thus groomed she serves
In hospitals and in the community
An indispensable member of the human society
Who else, but a NURSE!
