I Want To Become A Nurse

Ever since I was a kid I knew I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives. Growing up I found myself having a strong interest in the medical field and I have gone through the gradual realisation that nursing is the perfect career for me.

Now to most people, this wouldn’t mean much to them. But to me, the way that nurse was able to make me feel safe and relaxed, meant a lot.
