What inspired me to choose a career in nursing?

I chose nursing because I enjoy being around people and want to help people feel comfortable and advocated for in the healthcare setting.  Additionally, nursing also appeals to my interest in math and science.  Throughout this semester especially, I have realized how many opportunities there are in nursing and I’m so excited to explore!
