This paper is a chronological review of the events that led me to the decision to become a nurse and the development of my own nursing philosophy. I realized my journey in nursing started at the age of 16 and progressed to my current place as an RN-BSN student at James Madison University (JMU). My main goal as a nurse is to have a positive effect on others through access and education. Experiences in my life have brought me to the awareness that it is my calling and the only profession where I could feel comfortable and humbled in serving others, yet challenged and confident through research and advocacy.
