How many times did you hear, " Don't Do It"? Well I heard it a lot 9 years ago when I began my coursework to become a nurse. I was determined; I followed my dreams and did it! Here I am, almost 4 years after graduation and thinking, "Now why did I do that"! lol No regrets truly but it is very different then what I though it would be like.
I first dreamed of becoming a nurse after a long hospitalization (auto accident) when I was in my 20's. Twenty years later I did it! I followed my dream of becoming a nurse because I knew I would love caring for people (and I do). I love the challenge of medicine and people interactions of patients and (yes) families.
I love getting into these amazingly personal interactions with patients and becoming a spoke in their wheel of success.
Why did you become a nurse?
