Happy New Year from CareerStaff! Let’s kick off 2023 the right way — with some positive affirmations for nurses and clinical workers, in the words of other professionals in the CareerStaff network.
Whether you work as a nurse, therapist, speech-language pathologist, pharmacist, technologist, technician, or another clinical role, you are essential! Without healthcare professionals like you, America’s hospitals, nursing homes and other healthcare facilities wouldn’t be able to provide the care that patients rely upon, all across the country.
In other words, you are appreciated! And to underline that important fact, we’re sharing some inspirational positive affirmations for nurses and clinicians, as expressed by people from the CareerStaff network. Whether you’re looking for a little pick-me-up after a stressful day, or some motivation to start another week, we hope these wise words from CareerStaff workers can make a little difference.
Nurses are very special and to do a nurse’s job is not easy.
Positive Affirmations for Nurses & Clinicians for 2023
“Never underestimate the power of one individual,” said Kathleen, a registered nurse and one of the CareerStaff Clinicians of the Month for September 2021.
“While you recognize that you’re part of a team and that you can’t do everything yourself, you also know that you have an essential role to play,” she added. “It’s all of those roles coming together that make the magic happen. Try to remember that your contribution matters, both individually and as part of the broader picture.”
“I still strive to bring that personal touch to my patients in attempts to at least brighten their day,” said Lisa, a licensed practical nurse and a CareerStaff Clinician of the Month for March 2021. “The inspirational part of healthcare for me is being able to make a difference and advocate for my patients. That sense of making a difference is what keeps me going.”
“If we care for each other and show that there is love and compassion in this world no matter how sick they are, be that person to show them that we got them and that we care,” said Seth, a nurse and CareerStaff Clinician of the Month for January 2021.
“That is healthcare, and personally my inspiration,” he added. “I see my fellow clinicians walk this path and I’m with them arm in arm. It’s an exceptional lifestyle that takes passion and grit.”

Positive Affirmations: What’s Your Healthcare Origin Story?
Over the years, many members of the CareerStaff family have spoken to us about the early roots of their inspiration to become nurses or clinicians, and how they knew they were destined for a career in healthcare from a young age. Their stories are also a great source of positive affirmations for nurses and clinical workers of all types.
“I was ten years old and I knew healthcare was my destiny,” said Courtney, a certified nursing assistant and an April 2022 CareerStaff Clinician of the Month. “The most inspiration I get [is when] someone that I provide care for verbally tells me they trust me, they feel safe with my care, they are happy and they know that I will do the job to the best of my ability.”
For others, though, healthcare didn’t become a career until later in life.
“I was in high school trying to find a career path. My mom, Grandma, and uncles were all registered nurses at the time. I loved that they had the opportunity to create such a positive impact in the life of others. They all inspired me,” Alyssa told us.
“Nurses are very special and to do a nurse’s job is not easy,” she added. “Every other nurse and medical worker in the hospital are such an inspiration. We are all doing God’s work.”
And for other CareerStaff workers — like Spencer, a phlebotomist, Iraq veteran and CareerStaff Clinician of the Month for September 2021 — entering healthcare was the logical extension of a military career.
“I’d have to say, the most inspirational part about working in healthcare is the ability to adapt and overcome – similar to the military when I was a soldier,” he told us.
I see my fellow clinicians walk this path and I’m with them arm in arm. It’s an exceptional lifestyle that takes passion and grit.
