When you are younger and someone asks you what you want to do when you are older you usually get all awkward and don 't know what to say. But it was different for me, I always had a feeling that I wanted to do nursing. I wasn 't sure what type or where or how I would get there but I just had a feeling that 's what I wanted to do when I was older.
