I made the decision to pursue nursing as a career when I found out how high the fetal and maternal death rate was among women of color. I decided I would help to change it. At first, I started volunteering as a patient advocate and then I became a doula. I will educate and help prevent unnecessary deaths of women and babies.
I chose to attend Hondros College of Nursing because of the admissions department. There was a huge difference in support I received from HCN’s admissions team as opposed to any other college I visited.
If your heart is truly into helping people, then go for it. It is hard work, but it can be done. I have two children, a full-time job, and a learning disability. If I can excel, you can too. Take advantage of every tool they give you and don’t skimp on tutoring or study sessions. Be sure to stay organized and cut your distractions.
