Happy Nurses' Day !

Time really flies, it's Nurses' Day again!
2015 marks my 16 years in this profession. Yes, I did encounter rough times over the years, but I'm still loving my job & have no regrets choosing this career. 
Happy Nurses' Day to my nursing friends/ex-students/ex-colleagues & nurses all over the world. Nurses unite!

 Now, let's have some sweet cupcakes to celebrate our Nurses' Day *^_^*
