I was looking for a career that could not be shipped abroad because most of my friends lost their jobs this way. Working for a nursing agency, I saw how nursing ...

    Education is light. At Ambria I got the light of education, teaching, and instruction that I consider a pillar to achieving my career as a nurse. I look up to some of my teachers as role models. They said, “I have been there—it is challenging but it’s just a matter of time. You will achieve your goal if you endure.” Changing from a full-time student to part-time was diff...

I was a caregiver for a long time. I realized that with an education in nursing, I could give more care in a different aspect. There are many different types of care you can apply to a patient, and...
