"From Africa, Asia, Philippines To The USA Nursing, Is A Part Of Every Culture"
My journey from student to nurse was not an easy path!
Leaving the Los Angeles Divorce Court to begin a new era of my life as a nursing student at the Los Angeles Southwest College was, bittersweet.
That was over twenty years ago.
My success as a speaker, published author, and registered nurse is because of strength, endurance and a strong vision for future nurses. For that reason I'm driven to share my story with listeners, about how I overcame my obstacles.
Students often fail due to a lack of support, motivation and encouragement. It is my desire to assist them in overcoming those roadblocks, in particular, throughout their journey to success.
My hope is to inspire, encourage and let future nurses know they can overcome obstacles preventing a successful journey.
If you are an individual contemplating a career in nursing, a current nursing student or someone seeking a career transition, then let me be your personal blueprint!
It is an exciting time for a career in nursing and I would love to be a part of helping you get yours started.
I look forward to being with you on your journey, whether it be by book, blogging with you, answering your most intriguing questions or speaking at your next engagement.
