When I was in my early 20’s, I was wondering what type of career I would like to get in and stay in. I wanted to find something that I really enjoyed and would work hard at, not just something that I did for a paycheck. I began looking into to several different classes that taught you what you should look into in order to develop a career that would be fulfilling and worth the effort for the skills and background that I had. That career was nursing.
Since I knew I wanted to get into nursing, I had to get the degree that I needed. It was time to start applying to different schools so I could get the education I needed in order to start the career of my dreams.
It was no easy picnic getting nursing degree while I worked as a bartender. I applied myself and studied hard and long. Once I had the degree, I began working in a hospital in my area. The nursing career I had long dreamed of was finally happening, and I was more than happy to begin it.
Learning how to work with the other nurses and doctors was so interesting. I knew my career meant something to a lot of people, and I was able to help them in many ways. This career really made me feel special. With all that I was learning, it made me like it even more to be able to assist those that were in need of help. I took care of all different aged people, and especially loved taking care of the children. My career was really important to me, as well as my boyfriend. We ended up getting married and had two children of our own.
As I pursued my career, I learned even more about people and medicine. It was something really interesting to me, so I pursued my studies even more. When I was completed with all my education, I was able to become a doctor. It took me many years, but I now have my own practice, and I am a pediatric doctor. My career is so rewarding to me, and it has given me a way to make a difference in the world. I would never pick a different career, but always am grateful to have pursued the one that I wanted in the very beginning. A career in medicine made a huge difference in my life.
