We all know that nurses are the eyes and ears of medicine, the thankless army that picks up the details that others may miss and uses their experience to nudge us in the right direction. Nurses Week 2018, started with a Twitter call for your best stories about that one time (of many) that #ANurseSavedMyArse. See below for a collection of our favorites, and share your own story in the comments!

They make us look good.

And truly save lives.

They’re especially helpful when we’re still in training.

And catch our mistakes.

All while providing comfort and care.

Make sure you thank a hardworking nurse today! Happy Nurses Week!
