As part of Nurses Day 2018 we have been asking some of our senior nursing team across Manchester's community services what made them become a nurse.
Nurse Day is on May 12th each year and marks Florence Nightingale's birthday. It's a chance to reflect on nursing practice and encourage more people to nurse in the future.
Community nursing spans a wide range of roles - looking after both adults and children as well as a great number of specialist areas of care.
We published quotes from some of the team on our Twitter feed at @mcrlco - you can check out some of them here or visit our Twitter page for the full series of quotes.
