Growing up, whenever my twin sister and I would play school, she was the teacher and I was the school nurse. So I had dreamed of becoming a nurse since I was a child. I chose nursing because it’s a rewarding, fulfilling position. I enjoy being a nurse in the emergency department. Each day is a new adventure with new patients/families and learning opportunities. I am thankful I have the opportunity to make someone’s day better. Whether it be a smile, a handshake, or a life-saving intervention, it’s a feeling of accomplishment at the end of my shift knowing that I made a difference in someone’s life.
