Iowa Governor Terry Branstad created today on November 14th, 1989. I’m willing to bet he, or someone he knew, had just had a operation and been treated by a nurse somewhere. It takes a special person to be a nurse of any kind, to be an operating room nurse requires even more passion. Naturally the doctors fix the problem but it can be said nurses fix the person. An operating room nurse has to know the person, the equipment and the procedure in order to assist the surgeon and the compassion to insure the individual recovers.
