I will be finishing my degree in nursing in the near future and have enrolled in an optional subject called “Critical patient”. As a result of this, I have reencountered the meaning that death has for me as the last stage of life, based on my previous experiences with it.
Thinking about death again, has made me looked back on some experiences I lived during my clinical practicum classes last year at the Nursing Care Unit with cancer patients. These experiences made the feelings and emotions that we all have inside regarding death appear on the surface. Naturally, these feelings and emotions are influenced by past-lived experiences and the education received and upbringing of the particular individual.
The following story is the result of some thought born out of the theoretical teachings I have received and from the experiences I personally had during my clinical practical classes.
