If I could be anything, it would be a nurse. My second daughter was born with a heart defect. She had open heart surgery at the age of two. I was very impressed with the many people who touched our lives and saved hers, some even behind the scenes. I remember the hospital staff reassuring us that it was a daily procedure for Primary Children’s Hospital. But for us it was monumental and life changing. After surgery, my daughter was crying one night; I was not able to calm her. The nurse sang to her and she quieted right down. That resonates with me still today. I will never forget that.
I have currently worked as a CNA for two years and hope to continue my climb to a long lasting and secure career. I look forward to many years of touching the lives of others in the health care setting.
A nurse is a very important part of the healing power towards others. I plan to continue serving in my community as I work towards my degree. I hope to change the world even just for one. The efforts of the hospital staff so many years ago was life changing for me and my family. I would like to have an opportunity to give back and serve those around me.
