As I read Kathleen Resnick's article "A Different Kind of Nurse" (Reflections, September), I was reminded of how I felt leaving intensive care "bedside" nursing to do community end-of-life care, and from that level of hands-on care to administrative roles, and now consulting. Each step away from the bedside carried the same feelings of loss Resnick described over what many of us see as an integral part of nursing-the physical care of the patient. I, like many older nurses, continue to use my expertise to impact nursing care in other ways, but I think I will always feel like being a nurse is still a part of who I am.
