Helping others is something that is a part of who I am. Growing up I used to always love taking care of my grandmother. My grandmother was a sweet person and she always asked for me to take care of her.

It made me feel real good knowing that I had taken care of them. I knew I wanted to be a nurse when I grew up but, I just started hanging around the wrong people at school and got caught up. I came to job corp to get my high school diploma and a trade. I knew that the CAN program was the best program for me. My instructors have been great in teaching me everything I need to do.

If you want to teach nursing or have a higher up job, you can go to a uniersity like Rust College and get your bachelor’s, master’s or higher degree in nursing. I just want to get my LPN from a community college and maybe sometime in the future after I am settled I can go back to school fro a higher degree.
