God blessed me with the knowledge to pursue and achieve a career that I love. I am currently working as a dialysis nurse but have also had the opportunity to work in the operating room, emergency room, and a prison setting. My experiences have been a true blessing in my life and I appreciate every patient I have encountered. In my current position, I get to care for patients who find themselves attending three to four hour long dialysis treatments three days a week. These patients are extremely brave and the majority of them start every day with a smile. I find their smiles and optimistic manner of dealing with life contagious. Their ability to face life’s daily challenges is inspiring and reminds me of how fortunate and blessed I am to be in this career. I entered the nursing profession with hopes of helping those in need. I how found, however, those who I care for and greet with a smile help me appreciate and understand how precious life really is. At the end of the day, I thank God for my profession and hope to continue helping my patients one smile at a time.
