RALEIGH – Loren Ivester thinks she got the “caring gene” from her mother.
But the Wake Tech freshman also credits the nurses who cared for her ailing grandfather for her long-time interest in the medical field.
“I’ve wanted to be a nurse since I was little,” she said. “It’s all I’ve been passionate about. I can’t imagine doing anything else.”
She chose Wake Technical Community College to get her two-year degree before transferring because it was close to home and more affordable than a traditional four-year college.
