I first took the nurse's assistant course when my husband was getting out of the military because there were jobs in the paper all the time. I have been a nurse's assistant since '92. I have wanted to be a nurse for a long time after working with nurses. I have been working and working toward an Associates since 2003 and will graduate in May 2009 with the help of God. I also took a phlebotomist course in '03. I enjoy nursing and have worked with a few good nurses and several not so good nurses. Nursing school has given me a new respect for those that I thought weren't so good.
