Without a strong nurse-patient relationship, patient’s may not have the trust they should, therefore will not learn the tools necessary to be able to care for themselves. I strive each day in practice to develop strong nurse-patient

When I become a nurse, I want to use information that I have researched to provide care, educate and minimizing risk of harm, all while advancing the world’s knowledge of nursing. Although I do not consider myself to be bilingual, I am able to understand, but not confidently speak, Spanish, Tagalog, and Ilocano (a Filipino dialect). I learned up to Spanish 3 in high school, and Tagalog and Ilocano at home.

One of the most important things to me besides family and friends would be getting my nursing degree. Most kids want to be the president or a sports player but not me; I always wanted to be a nurse.
