I have worked in the nursing field for 23 years as a LPN, and I found helping others was something I truly enjoyed doing. I get inner joy from seeing someone who is weak get stronger, from someone who has an illness learn about the illness and are able to care for themselves or from someone who just needs someone to assist them and the smiles you get from just being around them. I lost my daughter in 2005 and I needed to take time to heal myself, my lpn license is inactive and I will be taking a refresher in April 2015 in the meantime helping someone is all I have ever known to do whether it be for family or friend.
