I have been a nurse for 32 years now, but I can remember clearly why I chose this path.... I was in my first year of college to be an engineer when my mother was hospitalized. I spent a lot of time with her and saw the nurses coming and going from her room. I loved how they were kind and worked to explain what was going on with us every step. I started asking them why they chose nursing and that made me consider the path. After my first year of college, I changed to nursing and got a diploma before I got my RN licensure. In 2015 I finally got my bachelor's degree and am considering going back for my master's degree later this year. I believe that nurses can really make a difference in the lives of people. I know that people can find fulfillment in many jobs, but I believe that is the real BONUS of nursing- seeing that you improve lives when you do your care is such a benefit. I hope you are encouraged to find your career by talking to people who do that work in your field of interest, just like I did- Best of luck Rashana!
