I have wanted to be a nurse ever since I was a
kid. I was hospitalized several times for
childhood illnesses and remember being happy
around the fast pace of a medical setting.
When I was seven and had to have an operation, I
was so excited that I packed my suitcase several
days before I was to be admitted!
I thought about nursing when I was in college,
but at that time I was more interested in
graduating than finding out what I should be
doing in life.
After I got out of college and tried to find
my place in the "real" world, I ended up working
in several corporate environments. This only helped
me realize how much I wanted to get back into
nursing! Now I'm entering my senior year, and can't
wait to finish. I really think nursing is a calling
you can't ignore.
