Luke chose a career in nursing as he has always had an interest in the medical field. He enjoyed the one on one interaction he got to have with patients while nursing and felt nursing was the right fit for him. He attributes his professional success to his friends as well as his social skills and ability to adapt to different environments.

Nurse Practitioners are registered nurses with specialized educational and clinical training in family practice. They have a higher degree of training in both the classroom and clinical setting than Registered Nurses (RN) do, although becoming an RN is a prerequisite.
