What inspired me to choose a career in nursing? 

I was inspired to become a nurse by the excellent treatment I received from nurses at the pediatric practice I visit.  The nurses always made me feel comfortable and welcome no matter how sick, irritable or grouchy I was. I believe everyone deserves the patience I recieved. I want to become a nurse to provide that experience to patients.
