Octogenarian Nurse Beverly Hoffman

Have you wanted to know what nursing was like more than six decades ago? Well, Beverly Hoffman, an 86-year-old retired nurse, gives us a peek inside. I loved everything about this interview: hearing Beverly's experiences as a new nurse in a pediatric unit, how she got to closely know her patients as a clinic nurse; sharing their family vacations and pictures of grandchildren. She gave us a reminder from the ancient Stoics: memento mori; "remember, you must die," and has not let the grass grow under her feet since retirement, becoming involved in her church and community. The five-minute snippet was so much fun as I learned about another passion of Beverly’s, the Green Bay Packers!
