I am sure it's the same for you, but when I'm in a hospital, I am humbly grateful for the nurse that is taking such good care of me. They have worked hard to become experts in their field: every two years, our knowledge of medicine changes by 100%. Unlike most professions, every few years, they are re-certifying and keeping themselves up today. Because there aren't enough nurses, the average RN puts in about two months of overtime a year on top of their 40 hours a week. The medical profession, including nurses, sacrifices to be educated and available to do the job of taking care of the sick. I can't help but be impressed.
