Hi there! I'm hoping to raise funds so that I may continue to advance my nursing education. I have worked 5 years in the ER prior to having my son 3 years ago. When my son was 20 months old, he became sick and was misdiagnosed with an ear infection by a pediatrician who performed a lazy, less than thorough exam. My Mommy intuition knew that he was much sicker than a simple ear infection, so I took him to my ER where he was diagnosed with early sepsis and was admitted for one week. Since then, I have had several other encounters with medical providers, both doctors and NP's, who seem to have lost the passion required in their positions to provide thorough, invested care and treatment. Its my goal to become a Family Nurse Practitioner so that I can help to inspire, motivate and influence other providers to give the very best care and treat each patient as though they were their own family member.
