So you want to know what made me decide to become a nurse. There are days when I ask myself that same question over and over, banging my head against the wall all the while. But the truth? It wasn’t for the glamour and it definitely wasn’t for the money. One of my greatest inspirations in life was a nurse who cared for me as a child when I was hospitalized for a long stretch. The details of the illness have long since faded from memory, but the compassion of my heroine will always be with me.
They say “follow your passion” and “let your dreams lead the way,” so I have.
We nurses are a colorful bunch! What’s your story? What made you choose this oh so illustrious and rewarding career of ours, nursing? Let me know on my Facebook page, and the nurse with the winning entry will receive an awesome Lululemon hoodie!
Lululemon is a self-described yoga-inspired athletic apparel company that “makes technical athletic apparel for yoga, running, dancing, and most other sweaty pursuits.” I think nursing fits the category of ‘sweaty pursuit.’ With a consumer base that is almost cult-like, lululemon products are known for their extreme function and flattering style. Take it from me; a lululemon hoodie is the perfect thing to zip over your scrubs for a look that says effortless style. Bring it on; share your story and convince me that you deserve an awesome Lululemon hoodie!
