Hello everyone! I stumbled across this site and decided to join because I am very interested in nursing. My friend was in a terrible work accident during Christmas break and I stayed with him at the hopital for a week and at a rehabilitation hospital for about 2 weeks. I got to take care of him the way nurses did like feed him, shower him, give him his medication and change his dressings. I really had a lot of fun and can see myself doing that for a career. I am a substitute teacher right now, and have one more year to go in order to be a full time teacher, but I may decide to change that. I am a very caring person and loved meeting all the other patients and nurses. They all said I was a great nurse and that he was lucky to have me. That meant a lot to me and I may decide to pursue this... I'm not exactly sure where to start so let me know if y'all have any suggestions.
