  • What Being a Title I Nurse Means to Me

    When I first transitioned to the school system as a Nurse, my coworkers at the hospital thought I was crazy. They would tell me I would be bored, that I would not have the sense of fulfillment as a Nurse. My entire Nursing career, I have been in critical care. I have worked in a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, Emergency Medicine with Trauma and a Recovery Room. I have been told I function best under the pressures of life and death.
