Thank you to my nursing instructors

My journey started in 1979 at Kent State University. I have appreciated many times thru the years that when I graduated from high school the only way I knew to become a nurse was to go to college and earn a BSN. College was difficult for me, mostly from lack of maturity and discipline. I was an excellent high school student but let's just say college was an "adjustment." When it was time to enter the nursing program I met with Sister Connie. She had some concerns about admitting me given my transcript. After speaking with me, something convinced her I was worth the risk. 

I mostly wrote this to thank Sister Connie and my other nursing instructors. You took an immature young lady and turned her into a nurse. I have worked for 30 years, including 13 years in the ICU. I am presently a nursing coordinator in outpatient endoscopy. I have never regretted my decision at age 6 to become a nurse.
