My job is so exciting. I never know what is going to happen from one day to the next -- who I will meet, or what situation I may face. At the same time, I know I'll have job security and endless possibilities -- along with the excitement -- once I get my degree. I always had a deep desire to help people in need and knew that nursing was the best way for me to fulfill that desire. I absolutely love the patient contact. Additionally, the job is really flexible, which helps me as a student. This flexibility will be really helpful when I decide to have a family. Nursing is not only about personal interaction but also about endless learning and keeping up with new information and skills. I am always challenged because there is an unlimited amount of information! I hope to become a licensed midwife and someday also become involved with organizations that send medical missions to less fortunate nations. I am studying Spanish now, so hopefully I can go to South America and use my skills there. It would be such a great experience to travel and help people at the same time. Nursing allows me to reach people when they need someone the most. That's what makes this career so gratifying.
