    What inspired you to be a nurse??

    What made me want to be a nurse.... well at the at of 19 my best friend was diagnosed with a rare form of lukemia..... he was 21... anyways i watched him go through chemo and all that stuff.... after 14 short weeks of fighting cancer he lost his life.... being there when he died was the hardest thing i had ever done.... but I knew that he would want me to continue on and do something to help those that are illl...... so here i am.... after fighting a few health issues myself (ovarian cysts... endometriosis....) i have finally gotten on board to become a nurse.... and to make a difference this is my way of rememebering him daily!

    Happy Thanksgiving! What r u thankful for?

    I am thankful for: My Family and friends My boyfriends safety while deployed overseas The life we are able to have here in the good ole USA! The oppurtunity to get an education and make my life better
  13. I am sorry that this has happened to you but I think that you are being very judgemental about this girl... I have a big colorful tatoo on my lower back... but that doesn't mean that I am not trustworthy, or can't be a good nurse or friend or even someone that other classmates can trust and it really has NOTHING do to with being conservative or NOT!!! .... I think that you need to take a hard look at yourself... I knwo you are sad and mad about this whole situation however judging her for a tatoo doesn't make you any better. Good luck in this...
