Allegheny Health Network Nurses Tell Us What Inspired Them to Become a Nurse...

"My first degree is in Exercise Physiology; I was taking care of cardiac rehab patients & saw the great work nurses were doing & said, 'That is what I want to do!' Plus, my aunt was highly influential on my decision, as a nurse herself." - Claire M. Zangerle, MSN, MBA, RN, Chief Nurse Executive

"When I was a teenager, my sister was killed in a horrible car crash. It was at a time when organ donation was new & it all seemed so overwhelming to my very broken family. The compassion of nurses who cared for her & provided support to my family inspired me to become a nurse. They made all the difference in the world to us. They listened, they let us cry, they let us just be together by her side, as a family. I will never forget them." - Joy M. Peters, DNP, RN, MSN, MBA, NEA-BC

"My aspiration to become a nurse was driven by the need for knowledge & skills that I required in order  to care for my daughter that was born with a Spina-Bifida. I wanted to provide her with the best medical care that a mother could give." - Billie Adams RN, NSN, CNOR, CSSM 

"I was inspired to become a nurse after my first memorable experience as a patient at the age of 5 in an emergency department. The nurse assisted the physician while holding my hand & wiping my tears. Her compassion made me feel safe. I was drawn to all of the activity that was happening in the ED & the care that nurses were providing." - Amber Egyud, DNP, RN

"I have always been a caring person & wanted to be able to contribute something to society. Coming from a family that provided public service (my father was a firefighter & my aunt was a nurse), I felt an innate desire to be a nurse. They were very passionate about their jobs & I felt I too wanted to make a difference in other people’s lives." - Patricia Reiser RN, OCN

"I became a nurse because for me, it was a calling. This is not just a job, I feel called to serve. Knowing the care I give & the knowledge that I have, can make a positive difference in someone else’s life is satisfying for me in a way that feeds my soul." - Jan Tssario, MSN, RN
