My overall impression of a nurse thus far is a man or woman who knows what he or she has to do to make others feel better. Whether it be health wise or emotional wise, this person will do what they can to help. This man or woman is not above nor below any single individual. They are leaders, educators, advocates for their patients, and supporters. They are selfless in many ways and responsible for the decisions they make for their patients.
I want to be a nurse because I believe compassion is a gift from God. I believe I have gained compassion through life experiences with God, and being a nurse is one of the most compassionate jobs. I have also been through some tough times, and I did not always make the correct decisions. I want

There is not much negative information I have learned. The positive information I have learned is that nurses have so many jobs within their career. They comfort people, educate patients and families, and help with medical procedures. To do all of these things, a nurse has to have a big heart and a wide set of skills.

They help advocate for vaccinations and worldwide healthcare.

I believe it is because the pain of his or her past experiences is far beyond the pain of being a drug addict or alcoholic. Working in a rehabilitation will also give me more patience and understanding. I will do my best to raise my daughter with an open mind and a compassionate heart. Becoming a travel nurse is the ultimate dream for me because I would like my daughter to grow up around different surroundings often. I do not want us to become too comfortable in one place. After all, God didn’t make this world so big for us not to explore
