The decision to pursue nursing as a second career was an easy one. All my life I had been interested in being able to provide care to individuals, but because of extenuating circumstances, I had never been able to do so. When my previous career stagnated, the opportunity arose to fulfill my dream. The two years that I've been attending school have been difficult for both me and my wife. The strain that it has put on my four young children has been exceptional as well. However, with their never ending support as well as the help given to me by Johnson & Johnson, the trip has been a little easier. Now, I can look forward to a fantastic nursing career after graduation with a world famous healthcare provider in the state of Minnesota. Thanks to all!!
