Do you like to help others? Do you enjoy making a difference in someone’s life? The halls of hospitals, public health agencies, and nursing homes are filled with compassionate people just like you. Consider joining one of the most rewarding professions—become a nurse!
Kristie Johnston Poppo dreamed of becoming a nurse since she discovered the wonders of a plastic stethoscope and the way it felt to make someone feel better. At an early age, she played dress-up with a uniform and a nurse’s cap. Kristie’s mom, Kathy Johnston, shared her daughter’s love for the healing profession. Both women have realized their dreams and are now experienced healthcare professionals working at Florida Hospital in Altamonte Springs, Florida—Kathy in labor and delivery, and Kristie in the nursery.
