Some medical motivation – Gifted Hands

Last updated on July 24th, 2020 at 10:16 am


Here is a little story about an incredibly wonderful physician.

When I get the nursing students on their first day of rotations/clinicals, some are anxious, nervous, or scared.  Not sure BenCarsonif they can make another semester or term of school.  I have given them an extra credit assignment to watch this movie.  It is about a man who seemed destined to fail.  Poor grades and no real direction in his youth.  He had a wonderful mother who worked what seemed endless jobs to support her two sons by herself.  If you have an hour and a half to spare, do your life a favor and watch this movie.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this site or Facebook.  The students and even myself have felt like our batteries are recharge after viewing.

I hope you enjoy, see the movie below.
