"...I tried to make sense of the tragedy in my head..."
Nerisa Kellyman, Bachelors of Science in Nursing Student
TranscriptRight in the middle of this semester, the tragic news of the death of my 6-year-old sister who was crushed to death in the gate of her home in Manchester, UK defined for me what brokenness really is. I spent two days in my apartment, wrestling with depression, anger, and grief and a series of questions that only God can answer. As I sat outside Jan's office for our scheduled Academic Coaching meeting my mind was processing a million things as I tried to make sense of the tragedy in my head. She saw me sitting there. She saw my face and recognized my pain, she recognized my suffering, and immediately she began to seek ways in which she could help me. I could not have survived this shock without the help of my teachers here at Florida Hospital College. My Philosophy of Healthcare is, be able to see brokenness in your patients, see it on their faces and recognize their pain, recognize their suffering. Because sometimes their broken beyond words but your presences is all that it can take to repair them.
