“When I would tell someone that I was just starting nursing school,” Esta Grollman told me, “they’d say, ‘At your age?’”

Esta was in her late 30s when she decided to become a nurse. She had always been a nurturing, meticulous, resourceful woman with a quiet and quick sense of humor. So you’d think she could have gotten her start earlier. But even after early exposure to nursing, she didn’t think she was qualified.

We'd love to hear from you!
