I saw how my parents were treated in the hospital when they needed help, and how much of a difference having kind nurses made for my elderly father. I knew I wanted to go back to school and try and make that kind of difference for someone else. It's not often easy, but it's always worth it, and I know my dad is looking down from heaven so proud of me!

I suffered a lot when I had my son via C-section. No one explained anything to me about asking for pain medicine or anything else. I was scared because it was mu first time in a hospital and instead of it being a great memory of having my baby boy, i only have memories of being in so much pain and being talked to like I had done something bad. Then I had a nurse that took the time to explain and educate me on a lot of things for a first time mom and that made me realize i wanted to be “that nurse” for someone else.
