I’ve always felt this desire to help people or reach out when someone was hurting or just needed a helping hand. Nursing does provide that.
I didn’t consider another bachelor’s degree to be a step backward – I saw it more as an opportunity to expand my vision.

As time passed, I began to identify more and more with the mission of nurses and less with my job of selling products to them.

From an outside perspective, it was so comforting to know that people who started out as strangers could be trusted to care for her just like family.

I think that being a nurse is more than just being knowledgeable in the studies of nursing. It is about compassion to care for others. It might mean leaving your loved ones for long hours to take care of someone else’s loved one.
