Nevertheless, for Vanessa it’s been a journey and learning experience that she would not trade for anything. She especially treasures nursing school as a place where she has made connections with students that will last a lifetime. She is excited about the path she’s chosen because it’s a career that keeps growing and is in need of individuals like herself. Vanessa has faith that she will accomplish her goal and in the process make her parents and siblings proud.
