Having friends and family as nurses has helped me to stay educated about how important routine Pap tests are. My mom took me to my first Pap test and educated me on how important self care is. Her passion and love for educating women is what led me to become a OBGYN nurse. Today I would like to encourage ALL women over the age of 21+ to get regular screenings for cervical cancer.
