From a young age, Reina Arey wanted to be a nurse. Back then, she
was in awe of the nurses who cared for her younger siblings in
the NICU. Today, it is the nurses braving the COVID-19 pandemic
who continue to inspire her as she pursues a nursing degree at Central Ohio Technical
“Nurses have a desire to help people. When someone is hurt,
nurses can nurture them back to a healthy state,” she said as she
explained her appreciation for the profession.
