What a great clip! Inspirational. We can enjoy our dream job in all it's fullness if we ensure we set boundaries to protect us from burnout. Prioritize family and relationships before work.

I am a midwifery lecturer and used to use this wonderful video with my students going out on their caseholding placements. It was always inspiring to them. So sad to see it has disapeared.

this is the first time I have seen any of these clips , as a CMS working in a frantically busy regional hospital , understaffed , under resourced with outrageously enrealistic expectations piled upon us in ever increasing volumes I am at breaking point , as are many many of my colleagues both young and old , we are even losing our new grads due to the pressure and stress in our unit ... With no support ... So thank you for the chance to view this clip
