As a child, I of course had many different aspirations as to what I wanted to be when I grew up. In the fourth grade, one of our assignments for the year was to read a book from the library each month. One book I chose was called, "Nurse from New York," and I was hooked.
I told my mother, "I am going to be a nurse, just like the nurse in this book." From that point forward, I never thought of being anything else. I graduated from LPN training in 1981, and have never regretted a single minute since.
Life, as you know, has a way of throwing us some curve balls, and I am now, finally able to continue my dream of becoming a Registered Nurse through The College Network. I have laughed, and I have cried side-by-side with my patients over the last thirty years, but forever and always I have been there for all of them through thick and thin, and wouldn't change a single minute with any of them!
