I remember my mom going through nursing school when I was 8 years old. I was completely infatuated with her nursing books and hearing all about nursing. As I got older I felt the pull the “care” for people. Whether it was a friend or family member, I wanted to be the one to nurse them back to health. When I was 16 my great-grandfather, who had suffered multiple strokes over the years, became critically ill. I spent evenings sitting with him at the hospital. It was during this time that the desire of a little girl to become a nurse became me knowing that nursing was what God was calling me to do.
