I have always dreamed of being a nurse and thanks to JELF I am able to get the education to do so. I hope to help my patients and their families during their most vulnerable times and I am so thankful to be able to attend school to do so. During these trying times of COVID-19, I am so lucky to have a job that allows me to help others. Thank you JELF!
