Recently an NCF member shared how God led her to care for a patient just diagnosed with cancer. Irielle was in the room when the doctor spoke briefly with the stunned patient, handed her a box of tissues, and left. "I wondered what I could do or say to comfort this woman," Irielle said. "I wanted to walk out, but God encouraged me to ask her if I could pray for her. She said yes."
"God gives us divine appointments with our patients and it is up to us to speak life into hopeless, worrisome situations," Irielle believes. "As nurses, we have to show God’s love, compassion and mercy to those under our care!"
Irielle is a 2008 graduate who served as the NCF chapter president at her nursing school.
