I would love to become a nurse for many reasons. My ultimate goal is to become a Nurse Practitioner and work on building a bridge between Orthopeadics and Pain Management to fight the battle of addiction. Opiate abuse is such an epidemic in the U.S. I feel some people fall into this because of unfortunate circumstances like injuries. I believe if a program is set in place to address this issue we are one step closer to winning the battle of addiction.
