It takes a special kind of person to become a nurse. You have to be willing to work long shifts. To care for people when nobody else will. To be there for families at their darkest hour. And to do it all while being taken for granted.

Nursing is hard, thankless work. And yet nearly four million people in America do it every day. Here are a few of their stories, a collection presented in partnership with Johnson & Johnson.
