- A woman gave South Africans a glimpse into the life of a nurse
- Precious Mgazi detailed how a typical day in her life starts
- The inspiring nurse revealed she works with babies born prematurely
Being a nurse is not just a job, it is a calling, and one inspiring lady proves it. Precious Mgazi took to #ImStaying's Facebook page to reveal what it's like working long shifts to care for other people's babies.
Mgazi is a nurse who works with premature babies, Briefly.co.za learned. Without complaining, the inspiring woman wakes up at five in the mornings to go and work gruelling shifts at the hospital.
According to Mgazi, she and a team of "superheroes" work 11-hour shifts to help give little babies a fighting chance.
She captioned her post:
"I start my day at 5am to form part of team of superheroes working 11 hours to shield tiny little humans fighting for a chance to live at early as 25 weeks.
"Giving hope to parents and ensuring that in two or three months, or however long the journey may take, they will go home with a bouncing 'lil baby boy or girl free of complications. That's why I'm staying."
The story gathered a whopping 19 000 likes from South Africans in just seven hours and Mzansi applauded Mgazi for the difference she makes in young lives.
Mary Kruiskamp commented:
"Now that’s a real nurse talking."
Santie Schiermeier added:
"Awesome! We need more of your type in this world. God bless."
Hanlie Paver said:
"Thank you for all the great work you and your colleagues are doing. I had a preemie as well."
While Mgazi was applauded for her hard work and dedication, a couple of male nurses stole the show for another reason - their handsome looks.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier this week that Mzansi ladies were left swooning over a couple of handsome male nurses.
