    Thank you very much.

    I do have a question for anyone to answer...

    What made you want to become a nurse? What was it about the profession that drew you here?

    I've always wanted to be a nurse. Ever since I can remember. My mother was very ill off and on when I was young. I am usually a nice person and have a nurturing personality. I am generally optimistic and try to look for the best in people most of the time. Although, I have become more realistic as I grow up.

    Why did you want to become a nurse?

    Why did you want to become a nurse?

    Me? well same sort of thing I guess.
    When I was very little, almost 4, my Uncle was dying of cancer. My Mom was real close to him and was an emotional wreck. I remember sitting for hours on end in the hospital. We werent allowed to go in his room but had to sit outside. I used to watch the nurses and doctors going about their day alot!
    Then on the day that my uncle did die, I can remember that my Mom was crying and all alone un ther with him. And then a nurse came out of nowhere and gave her a hug. Then another one came also from nowhere and took my sister and I down to the vending machine and got each of us a soda. She talked to us like we were adults. Those times made such an impression on me growing up. I wanted to make a difference in someones life just like they did.
