1) Your top 3-5 values (both personal and career-wise)

Now that you've defined what drives you internally and your ambitions, this allows us to narrow down options and identifying the right career, for you personally, in nursing to choose from.

Nursing is a tremendous field as there will always been a need for RN's world-wide. Nurses save lives, and that is very powerful. It's a fulfilling occupation that will lead to both personal and financial success. I am rooting for you and thank you for your dedication to keeping the world healthy!
