From the Paper:

"The call to the nursing profession came when I was only nine years old and as a result of the care and compassion shown to me by a nurse. It happened during the time when I had a broken arm and I was rushed to the hospital by my parents. This was my first experience being in a hospital and my parents for that matter, being immigrants, did not have experience dealing with the healthcare system here. I think they were a bit intimidated dealing with doctors, nurses and other hospital staff but nonetheless, I was provided with the diagnosis to determine the extent of my injury. X-rays were taken of my broken arm but apparently, my parents were told that there was nothing wrong with me and that I could be taken home. However, I was still unable to more my arm and was still in pain and this worried my parents. While being discharged, a kindly nurse approached my parents and recommended that I be taken to another medical professional in order to get a second opinion. This was a vivid recollection on my part and although I had no idea at that time what the nurse told my parents, all I saw on the nurse's face was the empathy she had for me."
