“One great thing about being a nurse is that it allows me to help my community through different ways. Working in a hospital is one, but being in the community is very rewarding, especially working with people that are excited to learn.

The most important aspect of what we do is education, and being a teen educator allowed me to educate teens in a critical moment in their lives. Empowering these teens with knowledge, and more importantly watching their self efficacy and esteem grow throughout the weeks has been a great joy and what I enjoy about being a nurse!”
