She feels that God has put her into this field because she has compassion for people when they need help during their recovery periods. She feels she is an asset to the nursing profession, and the best part of being of nurse is embracing the joy of seeing people get well enough to go home where they belong with their family and friends and being a part of the team that is able to get them back up on their feet and live as independently as possible. She highlights the reward as her knowing that her patients appreciate all that she does even on their bad days.
