But i had a a nudge in a different direction when my mother was pregnant later. My little sister was a premie and my mom had gestational diabetes so it was a pretty rough time in the household emotionally for everyone. My mom was worried leaving the baby in the hospital, and me being the helpless big sis at 8 couldn't do much consoling. It was a stressful period for me. Fast forward.... My little sister will be 13 on valentines day and she's still a little small, but she's so precocious. I'm looking forward to my nursing career.

- 0Jan 14, '13 by MegslBI'm a cardio and trauma junky. After building up some experience, I want to go into trauma. I think it'll be a great basis to further progress into another specialty. Thankfully I get my trauma fill, by volunteering in an intense ER At some point I want to become a scrub nurse as well. I think I want to specialize in almost everything haha. But mainly cardiothoracics, trauma, and Sx.
