What inspired you to become a nurse?

I wanted to do something challenging, enjoyable and beneficial to people’s lives. I chose to nurse because I am interested in science and want to help others. Nursing also provides a wide range of career opportunities, job security and advanced degrees. I am very passionate about healthcare and see it as a way to contribute positively to society.

What would you say to someone who is considering a career in nursing?

Nurses provide patients – and often their families – with a vital combination of health, emotional and social help when they are in need. It’s a job in which you can make a daily difference in people’s lives.

What is the best part of your nursing job?

My nursing career is rewarding, but it has had its ups and downs like any other profession. I’ve always managed to get through the difficult times by remembering why I became a nurse in the first place: to give exceptional treatment to my patients and their families.

Anything else you want people to know about your profession?

Nurses have a great deal of self-confidence. We leap into action when a problem arises and devise a solution. Nurses are lifelong learners who are curious, intelligent and hardworking, but we also know how to relax and enjoy ourselves!
