    Oh, my kids love it. They love the fact that I am a nurse. The day I graduated they had the biggest smiles on their faces. It was huge accomplishment for us and they knew that our life was going to be different because of it.

    Right now I am a medical assistant and I work in an orthopedic and neurology department. I care for patients and I triage them, I see what is wrong with them, I tend to them and just communicate with them well.

    No matter what you go through in life if you believe in yourself, if you believe all you have to believe that you can truly do it. I would want people to know that I could do it, they could do it, all they had to do is believe.

    Currently I work as a traveling ER nurse in Columbus, here in Columbus, Ohio. With the travel nursing the nice thing is the flexibility but also the fact that it does change, the role of the traveling ER nurse changes from institution to institution, from facility to facility.
