Ladies and Gents,
Can you please help me out with a decision. I am trying to decide whether or not I should go into nursing, first off I will let you know why I want to be a nurse.I want to be a nurse because when I was a young girl my dad was an elderly as he was 60 years of age when I was conceived. He had terrible diabetes where he had to inject needles into his flesh. I would watch carefully how he did it, one day my daddy asked me to inject the insuling for him. I told him no daddy, but he said everything will be ok, so I thought fine so I took the needle and injected it into him, I felt so needed and really enjoyed it this is when I decided that when I get out of the foster home that I would return home to take care of my dad. That day never came my dad passed on. A year down the road I decided that I want to be a nurse,
because I am a people person and love to help people that are sick. I have candystripped as a young girl. I had met this elderly man when I was candystripping and really became attached to him. I looked forward to seeing him and feeding and grooming him on my shifts, I would read stories to him and would talk to him. One day I went back to see him and he was not there, oh the pain that hit my heart, I felt heart broken my friend was no longer there, for he had passed on
I do reminise about the time we had spent together. I miss feeling like I made a difference in his life. God bless his soul.I am now 36 years of age. Health has always facsinated me and when ever I pass by a health book I have to pick it up to read and learn more about our health. I have also vollunteered in old folks homes as a young lady (age 15) and really enjoyed it. I loved playing games with the elderly. please let me know if I have potential to be a nurse? If not is there anything that can make or help me in my career goal?
