"I worked for 10 years as a veterinary technician at Ahoskie Animal Hospital and decided I would like to try the 'people' side of healthcare. My work in veterinary medicine was a great foundation for me to enter the healthcare field. I learned in the nursing program at R-CCC just to 'breathe' and it will become natural for you to care for patients. I want to thank my nursing instructors for all they taught me. Today I am an emergency department nurse at Vidant Bertie Hospital in Windsor and it's an exciting career. It's all about the team you work with and being ready for any nursing situation. I am so glad that I pursued this career and became a nurse because helping people who are sick or injured is what we do!
