Interview with an Accelerated Nursing Student

I’m excited to again step back from sharing my views and experiences in this blog and let somebody else do the talking. This is my second entry in a series of interviews that I’m conducting with others pursuing health careers. I think that we (as ambitious Future Health Professionals) often get so entrenched in our chosen programs of study that we fail to understand the journeys of others. I hope that this series will allow you to discover not only new health professions (and the various paths that lead to them) but also the motivations of those students who pursue those careers.
