There are many different qualities that I possess. The ones that I think will benefit me in the nursing field are that I am a team player and I have a great sense of humor. Growing up in a household with 3 sisters, it was very hectic. Having siblings (as hard as it was) there is no room to be selfish. You learn how to be patient, kind, and generous. There is not one thing that my sisters can ask me that I would not help them with. I am a better person today because of them.

I have been surrounded with children since I was once one, and they bring a sense of joy into my life. Kids are careless, free individuals who make you think about the future.

Having a maternity and pediatric course opened my eyes making me realize that I want to work with kids. We learned that humor is a form of therapeutic communication something I think I will excel at. Dealing with a child who is very sick can be challenging, and if I can put a smile on a child face, that will be truly amazing. Also, for the fact that nursing can be very stressful, putting a smile on a coworkers face can change their mood and make their
