Why did you choose nursing?

  1. I am wondering what are the motivators and decisions factors for selecting nursing as a profession? Why did you enter? What were the barriers and enablers?

    For me nursing isn't just a profession or a career. It's my life. I don't mean that I spend all my time at work. I'm a mother and grandmother, besides everything else, and nursing is nurturing and caring for others. I became a nurse for those reasons.
    Barriers: time. It wasn't until I was 32 that I got my degree. It must be the right timing
    Enablers: my family. Prayer and encouragement from my gramdmother, especially.
    I hope you will know how rewarding and difficult nursing is, and that you will be able to give as much as you get from the "profession". Life.
