I am currently on the path of earning a living doing what I love most, loving and caring for people as a nurse! Being a Crohn’s disease patient and having had a sister with cerebral palsy, I have been around the healthcare world my entire life. I have first-hand seen cruel nurses who do not care about their patients, yet I have also been blessed with compassionate nurses who go above and beyond for each person. THAT is what kind of nurse I want to be. I want to hand a new mother her baby and watch the love in her eyes when she sees her child for the first time. I want to help make the hospice patient comfortable, provide them with dignity, and ease their pain at the end of their life. But most importantly, I want to be the nurse who sits next to the thirteen-year-old girl newly diagnosed with Crohn’s and hold her hand. I plan to graduate next year with my Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree and then earn my Master’s as a Certified Nurse Practitioner specializing in gastrointestinal health. If I can make a difference in just one person’s life by showing empathy and love, then I believe I can change the world through one single interaction. Mother Teresa believed that “if you cannot feed a hundred people then just feed one.” As a nurse I cannot cure the world, but I can help each patient live in happiness.
