Write an essay where you tell us about what inspired you to pursue a nursing degree.

I have always wanted to be in the nursing field but was never sure what I wanted to do. 5 years ago my sister gave birth to my niece at 25 weeks. Watching the nurses in the NICU just fed my desire. I love being with babies all the time so it just feels right to be a NICU nurse. I have been praying with my youth leaders and I know God is leading me in this direction. I am also trying to go on a medical mission trip with my church to Honduras to get some experience working with children.
