by Stephanie from Mission Viejo


"You never treat like children always with maturity"~Juanita Pedraza While we see all of her helpfulness she contributes to the world,uanita Pedraza brightens everyone's day with her positive output. I was first introduced to her by my family because she was visiting. What I find fascinating about Juanita Pedraza is that when I first met her it caught my attention that she was caring and kind. I would like to pursue my dreams and I feel that's nice I want to work in the medical field that I what I would love to do I love to help people and I look up to her. The similar career I would like to pursue is to be medical assistant that even though I start off as a nurse I can still help other people and do what I would like to pursue in my life.

"Never to be angry but to always be proud "~Nicole Pedraza According to the occupational outlook handbook website, nurses help with patient care, The education requirements are that in all nursing programs you must take the courses In anatomy physiology ,microbiology chemistry ,nutrition psychology, BSN programs take 4 years to complete ADN programs usually take 2 to 3 years to complete to become a nurse you must be licensed and to become a licensed nurse they must graduate from an approved program and pass the national council licensure examination registered nurses make 69,510 annually which is 16 percent of the annual salary a year related tasks are, dental hygienists ,diagnostic medical sonographers and cardiovascular technologists and EMT technicians "registered nurses have to have critical thinking skills , communication skills, compassion, detail oriented, emotional stability ." This means that they have to at least have some of these things they can use on the work field .the recent developments are that the percentage of wage the nurses get is from 7 percent to 16 now .

"Working with her makes you want to save lives "~ Brittany Sanches When she was first a young child her mother would always buy her dolls and she would act like they were people she felt she needed to help them these then later translated to her wanting to be a nurse. Her developments in life were that she went to Loma Linda university in 1998 and she graduated with a nurse license and bachelor's degree in medical terminology in 2005 in high school she went to Capistrano Valley High School in the year 1992 and graduated in 1996 then went on to college in 1998 and graduated in 2005 Some of her career successes were she helped save a man one night when she was at dinner he had a seizure and she knew the exact thing to do all thanks to her medical skills. These days she works at mission hospital and she helps people when they are at their worst.
