As a seasoned nurse, I have seem them come and go and I mean not only in our nursing profession but as a whole in the medical field. With that being said, I began my nursing when we still use autoclave and sharpened our needles plus our syringes were glass, followed by starched white nursing uniforms with nursing caps. Furthermore, I witness rules implemented come and go as well as management and great advancement in our field as well as non-effective procedures. However, one of the reasons that I'm most grateful is besides still standing in good health mentally and physically, is that this career that I'm so passionate about has giving me the opportunity to travel around the world, and care for those in need and shared my knowledge. Unquestionably, a nursing career has so much to offer for those who have that adventure and hunger for learning. For example, I received my nursing license in my native country of Madrid, Spain, and after years of offering a higher caliber of nursing in Spain, I decided to travel to Italy, France, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and finally USA, and brought my experiences of nursing to each of these countries, plus acquired a vast experience along the way from each country. What I'm trying to convey to all of you new and seasoned nurses, is that you don't have to settle for the status that you have acquired, if you want more out of nursing it's all up to you. With that said, I'm not saying that you shouldn't settle where you are at this time in your career if you're happy at this present time with your nursing, so be it. However, there are so many branches of nursing that we nurses can achieve if you decide to, not only in your native country but elsewhere, is there for the picking. Lastly, I'm so grateful for my motorcycle accident which in turn brought me into nursing, as well as the need for knowledge which allowed me to expand my horizons in so many levels, which I thought at times not being possible; but I achieved all of the possibilities that were laid before me, and became the international nurse which I am proud to say I have become. In conclusion, don't let anyone out there be the obstacle of your success, because we as nurses are the heart of the matter in any given language.
