I was fortunate to have a nurse in my family, who was willing to share her experiences as a nurse with me. The nurse that I had the privilege of interviewing was my aunt, Margaret M. Bartholomae. My aunt began her educational career at William Rainey Harper College, where she received her associate’s degree in nursing. Afterward, she passed the NCLEX, and was able to practice nursing. However, as she progressed in her career she realized the importance of a more extensive education.
Nicole Fortenberry, enjoys helping and caring for others in the medical field. She had been working at Forrest General for almost a year (Fortenberry 1). Still to this day, senior female nurses in England are still known as ¨sister¨ (Allgeyer 2). In my research, I have learned that there are many types of nursing careers.

I Love What I Do: It Is My Way of Life 1. My First Step to Pursuing My Passion I have a great mentor who has helped me in my life. Because of her, I could be a Ph.D. nursing student at the University of Washington. Through her, I learned the true essence of nursing and gained a wonderful dream of becoming a professional nurse scientist in the healthcare field. I went through hardship ten years ago.
I didn’t know that it was the nurse who came up with the patient’s healthcare plan (USBL). I always thought the nurse would pass the patient’s charts over to the doctor or may even a surgeon, if surgery was needed. After the chart was passed to someone higher positioned than the RN, I thought maybe the whole team of the patient’s nurses and that doctor would come up with a care plan.

The purpose of this paper is to compare and contrast my values as they relate to nursing and my possible future career and my plans. My goals are to someday become a pediatric nurse: I love helping others and working with young children so I feel like this is the field for me. I interviewed a nurse who I have looked up to my whole life. I wanted to become a nurse, but watching her as nurse made me decide I wanted this for myself even more: her RN initials are JSJ. JSJ has an associate’s degree in nursing and is working towards her bachelor’s degree.
Personal Philosophy of Nursing Heather M. Alfrey Jacksonville University NUR352 SI Nursing has many aspects that contribute to its profession. Generally, when speaking with a nurse about why they went into this profession, you will hear it was to help people. Nurses tend to have a very caring attitude when it comes to others.

One of the ways that I can educate myself is by learning what nursing means to me, and how I can grow in this profession.
I know that helping others is something that is good for me. I’m very interested in learning more about becoming a RN and what position they take in a hospital. Caring for people is a wonderful and I believe I have the potentials to help sick or ill patients.
