I’d like to acknowledge the ladies and gents that work in the medical field as nurses. The first one I ever met was my mom. I didn’t see myself ever following the same path, but I eventually did. I actually wanted to major in Hospitality Management, but found myself becoming disinterested after taking some business classes. It was during my time volunteering at a prenatal clinic that I realized maybe nursing could be a good career for me. It took longer than I had hoped to get to where I’m at right now due to the competitiveness of getting into prerequisite classes and the limited space in nursing programs. I’ve been working as a nurse for just over 5 years, and I have no regrets with my decision despite wanting to break the mold at first. What I mean by that is there are several relatives within both my mom and dad’s side of the family that work in the medical field. I really did hope to do something different, but again, no regrets here. The job is far from glamorous, but someone’s gotta do it.
