I became a nurse because I wanted to take people from some of the lowest most broken and vulnerable time in their life and help them rebuild their life. I also grew up in a medical family, and that helped as well. I could have done any career, and I would have the love and support from my family. The real beauty of nursing is that you can be a nurse and do almost anything to expand on your knowledge. I have added to my nursing career and have taken other classes and obtained certifications in forensics, and law as well. You don’t have to be in a hospital, or nursing home, or hospice to make a difference in the world. I will always have dreams, you just have to know what you want, and always be open to learning and take every opportunity you can. If someone says you can’t do that as a career choice, make that a motivation to prove them wrong! Good luck to you! Nursing is the greatest profession there is, and I truly enjoy the path that I have chosen.
