Award Recipient

Jonas Caladio

RBC Diversity in Nursing Fund Award

Nursing is a blessed profession because we are able to witness a birth of a child and a death of a person. I find this profession as a calling rather than a choice. When I was in high school, I really enjoyed our science class because it talks about living things and how the body works. I’m not that good in math, and that’s probably why I excelled in other subjects like biology and chemistry.

I decided to take nursing in college not only because I prefer science than math but because I have a compassion on taking care of other people. Furthermore, I want to have an impact on other people’s lives. I want to have a positive impact to other people who are diagnosed with debilitating or degenerating disease. It is my desire to help and care for people who are under distress and discomfort. In addition, I love conversing with other people who don’t get enough love and support from their relatives and friends. It also came to my mind that if there will come a time that I need to be hospitalized, I would want a nurse that is loving and caring towards me. Besides that, being a nurse is an advantage when starting a family because I will be able to apply my knowledge and skills to any circumstances that involves health. In addition, I feel that I have a moral obligation to serve the public with all my heart and that is why I chose to be a nurse.
