we don't do your homework for you. asking on an online list isn't doing your own research. talk to live people that you can verify as actual nurses for this assignment.

my main reason for going into nursing is because i really enjoy taking care of others. i love the critical thinking and skills that it takes to be a nurse. nursing for me is also a ministry, i always pray that god blesses me to be a competent and protect my patients.

my worse fear about being a nurse is killing someone due to a mistake on my part or missing something important with a patient.
