“I wanted what anyone wants in a career: respect, authority and money. What I didn’t realize is that I can get it all in nursing and be ready to go after four years of university. Nursing requires critical thinking, hard work and stamina; you can’t be successful as a nursing student unless you are 100% committed, but it's a wonderful choice."
