One thing I love to do in life is take care of people. I have been inspired by all the nurses that have attended to my sports related injuries throughout my sporting career. I am currently employed at a nursing home as a certified nursing assistant. Spending time with the patients is one thing I look forward to everyday of work. I love getting to know them and listen to all their stories and memories. I am currently in nursing school at Emporia State and I cannot wait to graduate in a few years. I want to work in the ICU as a registered nurse and help as many people as I can. I feel that helping people out with their injuries or illness is a way I can give back to society. I would also like to take a part time speaker job. I love to inspire other individuals. As a male I fully see the gender related stereotypes that come with nursing. I would like to speak to teenagers and young adults and show them that nursing is not just for females. I would especially try to lure males into my idea of becoming a nurse. These are just a few ways I will be able to contribute back to society simply by doing what I love.
