The best part about my job is that it is very dynamic and fast paced. Working in the Emergency Department (ED) broadens one’s knowledge of nursing and managing critically ill patients in an acute state. This gives a feeling of fulfilment and satisfaction where I can change, and impact one life at a time, which has always been one of my goals as a nurse.
I definitely would do it all again, if given the opportunity to become a nurse in this lifetime or the next. This is my calling, despite the many challenges within this noble profession, all of which has made me stronger mentally and spiritually.
My advice to persons seeking a career in Nursing is to have the support of family and friends, which is very important, especially when you have children and other responsibilities outside of nursing. A strong faith in God and prayers does wonders to calm the soul throughout your nursing journey. You must also be disciplined in your studies; enjoy and love what you do. And last, but certainly not least, before you get into nursing do your research, talk to nursing professionals and look at the avail of limitless opportunities. And place God almighty at the center of everything you do, to help you in all your decision making.
