My love for caring for people and the ever-changing medical profession led me to my nursing career and to Hondros College of Nursing. I chose Hondros because it was close to home, and the program was fast. They accepted my previous school credits and made it very easy for me to enroll.
Nursing is the most rewarding career, and the options for the field are endless. I cannot think of another field of employment that allows you to change gears as often or as little as you want. There are always challenges and opportunities to grow.
If you’re thinking about a career in nursing, you have to be dedicated. Nursing school does take over your life to some degree. However, the payoff is extraordinary. Drive is the second thing that comes to mind. I had to have a desire to challenge myself and set new goals. I am still learning and evolving in this career. But by keeping those behaviors, I have been able to accomplish the goals I set for myself.
