mary o’gorman “I started my professional career as a legal secretary. Nursing was not a lifelong dream but an adult choice. I feel nursing is a vocation. It has been my life and love.”
By Rev. Austin H. Armitstead
Why did you choose nursing for your career?
|joann gull “From when I was a child, I always wanted to be a nurse. It is a career that combines science and the art of caring to make a difference in a patient’s life.”||joanne gunderson “I feel privileged to be an R.N. because people allow me to be a part of their lives. I can learn from them. I also enjoy being a nurse because I can help people change their lives and they can make a difference.”|
|kathy paolicelli “At the time I became a nurse there weren’t as many choices for women. I always wanted to work with the community and haven’t regretted the decision I made.”||joan laufer “I chose nursing as a career because at the time to be a lady doctor was not in vogue. My dad wanted me to be a nun and I hurriedly decided on nursing as the next best thing within my realm. No regrets!”|
|bianca armitstead “I became a nurse because I admired my mother’s competence. She was a nurse and no matter what happened to us five children, she knew what to do at a time when medical care was much less available.”|
