Smart Uruakpa is a registered nurse. He graduated from the School of Nursing in Amachara, Umuahia. He first came to my attention in 2008 when he asked me to get him transferred to the Operating Room. Over the past 3 years he has become a fantastic operating room nurse and surgical assistant. He is so good that I don't even like to do a case without him. He hands me instruments before I ask and always knows what we need. He can close a wound better than I can and has started to begin surgeries on his own,
His dream is to go to medical school or nurse anesthesia school. He will excel at either but I would hate to lose him.
