We asked our healthcare professional to share his or her story of perseverance, adjustment and professional growth.Jennifer is from the Philippines and is currently working at a client facility in South Dakota. She has been working in her field for 11 years and with PassportUSA for almost 1 year.Why did you decide to become a registered nurse? "I took up nursing because I wanted to help people in our community who have disabilities and illnesses. I have always believed that we need to help in creating a change in society, may it be helping the elderly or caring for the sick, it still makes a change in our community. I thought of this as an opportunity for my family to have a better life. I want to motivate our youth to aspire for a better future and a better community and to reach for their goals in life because the sky is the limit. I want to leave an impact to the patients I have taken care of and I want to become an inspiration to them to strive and to know that there is always hope."
"I rate PassportUSA as a 10, I am extremely likely to recommend PassportUSA to other healthcare professionals. PassportUSA helped me realize my dream to work as a nurse here in America and helped bring my family here so they may have better opportunities and better lives. I want other nurses like me to have this opportunity."
