Award Recipient

Krista Fyffe

Sharon Nield Memorial Award

I am lucky enough to have received the generous CNF Sharon Nield Memorial Award.  I don’t remember when I exactly knew I wanted to be a nurse but I don’t ever remember wanting to be anything else.  I always felt compelled to help people and never wanted to work behind a desk.  I hit some bumps in the road and it’s been a long journey to get where I am from starting with my LPN to almost being done my RN.  Despite some detours along the way I never lost sight of the end goal; nursing.

I feel at home when I am at work, and in a way, this career chose me.  Helping people and being able to make a little difference in a stranger’s life is my driving force to be a nurse.  There is no profession I could be more proud to be a part of, and I hope to make a difference in many people’s lives.  Above all I became a nurse to have the chance to make a difference in so many people’s lives and I plan to keep that as my driving force throughout my career, no matter where that lands me.
