These were the moments when I realized how much a medical personnel’s attitude to a patient matters, especially when you’re alone and feeling helpless.When you’re lying on a hospital bed, feeling depressed and broken, you begin to appreciate every smile, every kind word that has been said to you by a nurse or a doctor.
That was the reason why I choose to enter the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Nursing.
Nursing has always been something that I have felt I would truly enjoy.
In a while, I was offered a position as an Orientation Advisor for incoming students.
During orientation, I was able to decide to make Chemistry my major.
My first discovery was the nurse anesthesia program, which meant I could combine my passion for Chemistry with my joy for nursing.
Working as a Chemistry student I was able to realize the benefits that come from working in the lab – and it is something I find incredibly fascinating.
I had to explore many other options before I finally realized what I want to devote my life to.
As Virgil said, “Your profession is not what brings home your paycheck.
After having decided on graduating with a chemistry degree followed by a nursing degree I began to shape how my goal would be achieved.
I continued with Orientation as well as the Equestrian team.
