My degree I am working for is nursing. I have aspired to be a nurse ever since I could remember. There were two situations that occurred when I was ten and thirteen that solidified my decision. My first one was in my house. My little brother and sister and I were racing to the swimming pool. As we turned the corner into the kitchen my brother slipped right into the wall corner. He was about five years old at the time and cut a pretty good sized boo boo on his forehead. Immediately, I grabbed the nearest fresh towel and applied pressure to his cut. I picked him up and carried him to the car yelling for my mom and dad and off we went to the hospital.
The second incident was in South Carolina on an island called Daufuskie. My cousins were racing their bikes and crashed into each other. I get a phone call to come over and take a look at their injuries because their mothers were about to be sick from all the blood. I cleaned them up and told them everything was going to be “ok” and off they were back on their bikes. I love caring for other people when they need help. I can make rational decisions while everyone is in panic mode. I feel like a nursing position is a good choice for me.
