My name is Amy, I am in the general health science (GHS) program at Fleming College in Peterborough Ontario. I entered the GHS in hopes to get a better education and then enter the nursing program and get my degree as an RN (registered nurse). I have been interested in becoming a nurse as long as I can remember. As a child I remember going to work with my mom when she was a nurse. I loved seeing the patients and talking to them and watching their health fluctuate as they got better and better over time. As I got older I realised that in nursing not all patients get better but it is so rewarding to watch the ones that do. Helping others is something I love to do and I know I will be successful in. My journey into nursing will be a long one but I know it will be a worthwhile experience.
