When I was a young girl, my grandfather became very ill. My family decided to take care of him at home, and of course, I helped. I would help my grandfather eat and even dress. Ever since then, I wanted to become a nurse. I want to help improve the lives of others through care and compassion.
I first came to Hondros for my LPN. Now, I am working towards my RN. Hondros’s fast track was perfect for me and there was no waiting list. The campus is so close to home too. The instructors, counselors and the Director of Nursing are always available for students, even if it’s just for a pep talk.
Anything worth having is worth fighting for. That’s my advice if you’re thinking about going to nursing school. It’s challenging, but if you stay focused and work hard, you’ll prevail. For me, it took determination and perseverance. But if you keep a positive attitude, you will reach your goals.
I am excited to graduate from Hondros College of Nursing. I would like to thank the staff at Hondros for all of their support. I also couldn’t do it without my daughter encouraging me to never give up.
