Do I stay or do I go?

This is picture of me, working at CVICU of JGH during first wave of COVID-19. I was working as unit agent while doing my DEC in Nursing  at Dawson College. I remember how scared everyone was. From day to day policies and procedures were changing. During that time of uncertainty some people decided to quit, some of my fellow student didn’t want to volunteer or start looking for the job because of Covid-19. But what I saw on my unit was a strong team of fearless nurses who wouldn’t badge in front of the challenge. I’ve seen nurses volunteer to go to ICU and help. So, here I am working on my birthday and helping as much as I can to support my team. Because we are in this together.
