Helping others makes me feel the value of life. When I was a high school student, I was often sick. I met a very nice nurse who provided me with not only good nursing care but also warmth. At that time, I found that nursing is a valuable job, and I wanted to be a nurse like her to help others in need.

Question 3. Has COVID-19 impacted your decision to go into nursing?
