The past year of my life has been crazy. This past year has proven to be a real challenge. As a full time nurse and nursing student, I have an over-whelming number of assignments, duties, and tasks to keep up with on a daily basis. Add in 12 hour clinicals 3 days a week, there is very little downtime in my life. Just a ton on my plate until school is finished but I wouldn’t trade my life for anything less.

Infection prevention and control has changed my life, and I love being a nurse. It is the most rewarding career. There are so many opportunities for nurses whether it is at the bedside, in the clinic, on the unit, in the classroom, or leading. Going to school has been a real blessing in my life. I enjoy working with other students as a team to complete our education which is one of the exciting things about going to school. I am anxious to finish my current degree program and to get started in my next adventure as an advance practice nurse.
