Why I became a nurse – Alisa Melugin

Part one of this four part “Why I became a nurse” mini-series begins with Alisa Melugin.

“The reason I chose to go into nursing is because I am a proud cancer survivor. Being only six years old when I was diagnosed, I spent a lot of time in the hospital receiving treatment. I’ll never forget the nurses who cared for me, Martha and Susie, as they were kind, gentle, and cheered me up when I was scared. It is their impact on me that played a significant role in my decision to become a nurse. My desire is to care for my patients the same way that Martha and Suzy did for me.”
