We all want to help people, but is there something or some other reason that's pushed you even more towards becoming an RN? For me personally, I've always been a people person and love being around others. But my biggest reason for going into nursing is because of my car accident. I was t-boned on my drivers side by a lady in her truck who was talking on her phone. We were going around 50 mph.
This changed my life. I lost my car and my mental and physical health was altered. I was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder and went through 5 months of intense therapy. I also suffered a cervical sprain, thoracic paraspinal injury, whiplash, and I now have scoliosis all because of my muscular damage. Anyways, as you could imagine I went through a lot emotionally and physically.
The thing is, I made it. I made it through and I lived. Becoming a nurse will allow me to be on the receiving end of an individual who has gone through something traumatic just as I did. I want to help someone through an extremely vulnerable and exposed situation like my nurses, doctor, physical therapists, and therapist did.
So what about you? Why nursing?
