|Kristal Nemeroff, RN, School Nurse|
In a NICHD podcast interview for DNA Day, Kristal Nemeroff shared her journey with a genetic condition and being a clinical research participant. She also spoke about her pursuit of a career in nursing. In the interview, she recounted:
I did meet a lot of barriers when I started my journey through nursing school....and experienced barriers from professors...who were a little uncomfortable seeing somebody with a wheelchair rolling into the nursing program..... I just wanted to work with them as much as possible....
There's a lot of different roles for nursing out there....and just because I might not fit some roles in nursing doesn't mean that I'm not going to find a good fit somewhere else.
I kept saying this...
"I will find my place in nursing. I just need you guys to believe in me that....I belong here too".
