Help me help others
Antonio Gutierrez started the campaign
First off, my name is Antonio Gutierrez and although male nurses may not be the norm, I find that a career heavily involved in helping people heal is just as rewarding as any other traditionally male job. I am trying to gather the needed funds to cover tuition, books, equipment and etc. for an …read full description

Antonio GutierrezEven though I can't pay my tuition right now, I do still have a little bit of time to make this happen so in the meantime I am still allowed to go to clinicals. I had my first clinical this past Tuesday. The patient that was assigned to me has MS. At first I thought I would be a little scared of how to act around them but then I realized that this person has already been through all the sadness and disappointment of having this awful condition so nothing I could do would be a shock to them. What surprised me however was the completely positive can-do attitude of this person and how they interacted with their family, the nurses, and me. To be honest, it was kind of inspiring. I made it a point to check on this person every 15 minutes to ensure that she was not in pain, and could get help right away if need be. On another note, I got to "observe" the ER for about 10 minutes to see what it was like. All I can say it wow, the people working there should be wearing capes. 5 minutes into the tour and there was a Gunshot wound victim that WALKED into the hospital. I cannot give any specifics but this guy was lucky believe me. As soon as he came in people sprang into action and did their jobs 100%. I can't wait until I can go back to clinical, I am hungry for it.
