My nursing story

My nursing story

Today I wanted to share my journey as a nurse and how I got to where I am today. Everyone’s career path is different, and it’s important to explore what is possible for yourself. 

Nursing was not my first choice, but I found my passion for it. I talked about my experience as a young nurse and the emotional turmoil I faced. 

Throughout the episode, you will learn about cultural challenges and overcoming burnout. I also talked about my transition from one position to another.

I hope my story inspires all aspiring nurses and medical professionals. I believe my vulnerability and honesty help normalize the nursing experience and encourage you to explore your own career paths.
