Why did I become a nurse? Goodness, it was really because a friend of mine thought she would become a nurse so I just followed suit.  
 
Who knew it would be the ride of my life!  
 
It was the best decision ever, and you know, it only gets better.
 
Everyday, not only do I get to influence the provision of health at a system and strategic level, but at the same time I get to look after patients in the cardiac clinic and make a difference to their lives as an Endorsed Nurse Practitioner.  
 
Even better, I get to do it in the remotest parts of Australia and sometimes for the most disadvantaged.   
 
I believe I have one of the nicest jobs going.
