Equality and fairness is very important to me as well as finding value or worth in others. By this, I mean to look at people as part of a team. Every person brings something unique to the table because everyone’s life and experiences are different, but not necessarily wrong or right.

As I continue to learn about opportunities to provide individualized care to patients and their families, I further understand the imperativeness of the “whole person,” which is a critical skill of a nurse practitioner. As a skilled clinician, progressing in my career as an aspiring family nurse practitioner in the Stony Brook University School of Nursing, I will impact my patients by providing them comprehensive care that will result in improved quality of life.
The lights above the patient’s door rings as they wait for the nurse to come and answer to their needs.
