Jason, Jason, Jason! Lol much too honest for your own good lol. I always wanted to be a nurse. Just knew it from childhood it seemed. I like helping people, thought it a respectable career (I’m questioning that most times with some of the people I’ve met that are nurses), and I was always fascinated by science, and the workings of the inner body. Having three kids to raise and the money was an added bonus. I have worked just as hard at a gas station and when I worked construction, and in construction made almost as much money. Plus my mom was finally proud of me for something. I love the ACT of nursing, love the science behind it, but hate most of the nurses I work with and the politics behind hospital nursing. It takes away my love sometimes and makes me want to work at wal-mart lol.
