Personal Information

  • Specialty

    Critical Care Nurse
  • Degree

    BS/BSN

I always knew I wanted to be a nurse because my sister is one and she always told me how much she loved it. A major incentive to follow through with that plan was the scholarship I received -- my Veteran's Administration Health Professions Scholarship covered tuition and books and provided a monthly stipend. For me, one of the most rewarding aspects of nursing is working with a patient's family. In the ICU, the family is with the patient around the clock. It's really satisfying to help a patient's family understand what is going on with their loved one's health. Air Force nursing is exciting because I am constantly on the go and not stuck behind a desk all day. Everything I do affects a patient's life. There are lots of different options out there for me because I have a nursing degree. I can work in an inpatient setting, in public health, in nursing education, or as a school nurse. I feel confident I could get a job almost anywhere in the country and enjoy good pay and a high degree of job security. There's really no other career quite like it.
