My career path is

It seems like I always knew I would become a nurse. Even when I was very young, I wanted to be a nurse. I completed a Bachelor of Nursing degree in 2016. Since then I have completed a certificate specialized in cardiac nursing. Currently I am working on achieving my critical care nursing certificate. This will allow me to work in specialized areas such as the intensive care unit (ICU). I initially applied to the nursing program at the University of New Brunswick because I wanted to help and care for people. Since nursing is a trusted and respected profession, with good job security and satisfaction, it is a great career for me!
