What was the biggest influence that led you to become a nurse?

I feel like I grew up in the hospital. My mom worked here and it is just in my blood. I always wanted to be a nurse.

What’s your favorite thing about being a nurse?

I love caring for people, the nursing skills you gain along the way, and it is just something new everyday. 

Who or what inspires you in your career as a nurse?

When I get to see the patients go home after seeing them at their lowest point, that is wonderful. It makes those long, stressful days worth it.
