  • My true potential - Hesston College
    t tell you how much healing I have received in this program They helped me realize my true potential not the messages I had told myself my whole life The day I graduated from Hesston was amazing but I still had to pass boards to really be a nurse As I sat down to test I knew that no matter what happened I was going to keep coming back until I made it Mid way through the test I could feel a little panic set in and I cried out to God Please help me now I need wisdom It s kind of complicated to explain how the test is set up but I can tell you that when I was done I knew that I d either done extremely well or really badly because I answered the minimum number of questions a candidate can answer 75 I feared the worst I told my family that there is nothing within me that thinks I passed I waited a day and a half and when I got the results I cried the hardest I ever have cried I didn t believe it and I kept having my husband check the spelling of my name on the licensure information I was in disbelief until the next day when it came in writing Lisa Harrelson has passed I am now an R N I am still in shock It feels like a dream I have already been working for a week in the medical intensive care unit at Wesley I am finding my past is no longer holding me back I am free I will always thank God and I will always thank Hesston College Lisa Harrelson prays that God will put people in her path to whom she can minister Apparently God honors those prayers Gary Voth Hesston Kansas was in his third week at Wesley Hospital in Wichita due to a pulmonary embolism blood clot near the lungs One medication that was supposed to help had left him in excruciating pain for sixteen hours with damaged nerves and unable to walk The doctors recommended Gary begin another medication the blood thinner Coumadin That night worried and uncertain about the future neither Gary nor his wife Gladys could sleep in the hospital room Around 2 a m Lisa Harrelson entered the room It was a busy night and they were short staffed but Lisa was determined that her patients wouldn t know that As a nurse assistant she took Gary s vitals and as she did she could see fear on the faces of the couple in the darkened room She began to talk with the Voths about Gary s medical situation I shared about my husband having a similar medical scare several years ago Lisa recalled I talked about the fear I experienced with my husband having to be on medication for life and living with the fear that he may get another blood clot Then after awhile I was afraid
