Life is too short to do something that doesn't bring you joy.
We are all perfectly imperfect beings and shouldn't be afraid to show our flaws.
You are in control of your thoughts, actions, and destiny.
Hi! I'm Nurse Chioma
I used to dream about what it would be like to become a nurse when I was a little girl. I was born in Nigeria but I grew up in the United States. As soon as I finished high school, I went straight to college to obtain my bachelor's of science degree in nursing.
I went through a number of challenges and struggles to become a nurse. First it took about 3 tries before I successfully got into the nursing program.
Then after finally getting in, I ended up failing medical surgical nursing and had to retake a semester. How embarrassing! Then about 5 1/2 years later, I got my degree. but it was still no walk in the park.
I got my first job at a big memorial hospital where I was forced to resign after 6 weeks of working because I couldn't handle the role. I must have cried every night. But somehow through the grace of God, I persevered and obtained better positions, raises, leadership positions, and more.
I hope my story encourages you to keep going after your dreams of being a nurse.
