I have always wanted to be a nurse, my hopes were struck down at a young age by an instructor who was a 20-year veteran of nursing.
She told me that I would not make a good nurse because it is not about caring! It is about paperwork and doing exactly what the MD says to do. Finally, I found my calling...
At 37, I have graduated from an amazing LPN program. I LOVE my job regardless of the hoops the state board is making me jump through, love my patients, the MD's I work for, and my peers. Being a nurse has made me a better person, friend and mom.
