“…Thank you to the Leading Age Ohio Foundation for my scholarship [received in 2016]! I successfully completed my first semester of the nursing school  and absolutely loved it.  I had so many new things to learn and can’t  wait to become a  registered nurse. The world of learning is very exciting: I had one of the best clinical instructors, a brilliant nurse practitioner at VA Hospital.  Labs were so much fun, and some of my classmates have already become my good friends. As my background is art and philosophy, I have to challenge myself every day, learning anatomy and biology, but  I love it.  I try to get as much information as I can from more experienced nurses, and listen to the doctors when able to master my skills and learn new ones. The world of healthcare is always changing, and there is so much to do in this field. I keep working full time at Montefiore as life enrichment manager and go to school in the evenings and on the weekends. I love what I do and try to enrich residents’ lives every day, and hopefully will be able to make a difference in the future after I join the world of nursing as well.”
