“I love assisting people in what they need and learning different things. I also love experiencing the medical field through my internship and being able to learn many things from it. My plans after high school would be to attend college and get my Bachelor’s degree and work my way up to a Master of Science in Nursing degree. I have decided to pursue nursing because it was always something I was interested in and I love that I will have the opportunity of helping people in need. I also love nursing because I get to work with patients and different types of people in the workplace.
With WBL I have had the opportunity of understanding more about the medical field and it has helped me understand how to handle certain situations. With WBL I have also had the chance to speak with patients, get along with them, and learn more about how to care for them. I am very grateful to be in the WBL program because of all the opportunities it has given me to learn new and interesting things.”
