Step 3: Alignment with Social ChangeWhen I was 9 years old, I required surgical reconstruction of my larynx and specific attention was directed to my fragile vocal cords. I had a tracheotomy and a tracheal tube was placed for 3 months while I healed. During this time in my life I felt likeI lost my voice but the amazing nurses at the time helped me regain my independence. From that moment on I wanted to become a nurse and help those without a metaphorical voice. I worked two years in a mental health state hospital for adolescents but I wanted to develop more skills and become a more rounded nurse so I went on to do two years CV/ICU float charge nurse, 9 months NICU nurse, 6 months PACU nurse, and for the past 2 years I’ve been the head Acute Hemodialysis nurse for two hospitals in my area.

I plan on taking what I learn here at Walden and making it my personal goal to positively impact social change by utilizing these learning outcomes. I plan to contribute to the mental health deficit in my community, leading my co-workers by example and hopefully becoming a source for knowledge and personal growth.
