Mrs. Taylor and Ms. Jones have been with me every step of my nursing career. When I felt like giving up, both of them were there to listen and there to encourage me. It is very rare to have nurse mentors to be so caring and truly there to help you succeed. I would not be where I am today without them.

There are so many emotions that can be experienced while going through nursing school, and a lot of them are not so pleasant. Many times, I wanted to give up and call it quits, but I was not allowed. The team of nurse mentors that backed me will forever be in my heart. This team included Pamela Taylor, who continually pushed, encouraged, and believed in my abilities to be a nurse. And now, I can proudly say, "I am a REGISTERED NURSE." I am a nurse who continues to be encouraged by positive role models such as Mrs. Taylor and those that surround her. I am a nurse made by great nurse mentors!

Pam Taylor and Tasha Jones have been such great mentors throughout my nursing school journey, even when our school closed unexpectedly. After continuing to pursue a nursing career, these ladies continued to be great nurse mentors and very encouraging during that most difficult time. They both went out of their way to help me and any of my other classmates to succeed and to be the best we could possibly be. I am forever grateful to them both; they are excellent nurses, wonderful nurse mentors, and great people.

Words cannot express the love, gratitude, and appreciation I have for my wonderful mentor Mrs. Pam Pickens-Taylor. In 2019 I had the pleasure of crossing paths with her and her mentoring services and decided to reach out to her for nurse mentoring and guidance. From day one of meeting her, she saw something in me that I didn’t see in myself. She has gone above and beyond mentoring and supporting me, not only on an educational level but a spiritual level as well. She has truly been a vessel for God. Whenever I have reached out to her, she has always made time for me, and I will be forever grateful, even during her busy times. My nursing journey was rough, but she always encouraged me to keep pushing and have faith. Her words will forever be with me. Mrs. Pam Pickens-Taylor is the epitome of a mentor, nurse, educator, and professional.
