23 Nurses Reveal Their Most Shocking, Heartbreaking, And Beautiful Secrets

#11 is one of the kindest things we've read.

If you've ever spent any time in a hospital, whether as a patient or as a visitor, you'll know nurses are on the front lines of the tiled floors, seeing to patient and family anxieties, worries, and needs around the clock. If you press a call button in the middle of the night, it's a nurse who will come to see you. Your nurses will be the ones who you see for most of the time you're there. In addition to their medical duties, nurses are part counselor, part babysitter and part housekeeper. It can't be an easy job.

These secrets and confessions are from nurses who posted on the Whisper App, an anonymous online platform, allowing users to share their secrets and confessions. 

Some are slightly NSFW, so be warned.
