My passion for nursing is derived from wanting to place a smile on the faces of others, just like how my doctors and nurses encouraged smiles and hope back into my life after a ghastly motor accident. And, as an orphan, I want to care for the elderly. I would have done this for my late parents and any other person not able to help care for themselves.
I wanted to attend Hondros College of Nursing after learning about their successes and devotion to training their nurses. This was a top criterion for me when picking where to attend.
To those considering nursing, be sure to put in your best work starting from day one to properly succeed. It is hard but it is doable.
