Nursing is a very exciting and rewarding profession. I frequently tell students that if I could not be a nurse, I do not know what I would do. Nursing is a very diverse and dynamic profession that offers incredible opportunities. As I work with students and observe their growth and development as they progress with their nursing education, it is so heartwarming, rewarding, and humbling.
