that I wanted to be a nurse, and to me, pediatrics was the only option. When we moved to Dallas, Children’s Health was the only place I wanted to work. In fact, it’s the only hospital I applied to. Making life better for children was exactly what I had always wanted to do. I truly can’t imagine working anywhere else.
