My name is Angelica Lopez and I attend West Texas A&M University in Canyon, TX (GO BUFFS!). This university has that small town “homey” feeling that made it easy to fall in love with and it has been my home for the past four years. Living in the area has made me appreciate the outdoors life and I enjoy exploring all of the wonders that the Texas Panhandle has to offer. Through all of my adventures I found that I wanted to try something new, so I jumped into nursing and it has become my passion. Nursing allows me to be the caring person that I am and I could not be happier. I have dedicated so much time and effort into my studies and this is just another step to achieving the main goal of receiving my bachelor’s degree in Nursing. I will be doing my internship at Covenant Health in Plainview, Texas. In my time there I look forward to meeting the individuals that make up the nursing field. I want to experience all the different specializations and gain a better understanding of each of them. My main goal is to practice my skills and to continue learn new information and skills. I am so grateful to Ogallala Commons for this tremendous opportunity to be able to do what I love. I hope that this takes me one step closer to reaching my goal and I look forward to the journey ahead knowing that Summer 2016 will be fantastic!
