Richard's 37-year nursing career started entirely by accident. After serving in the United States Air Force as a signal intelligence NCO, he entered civilian life focused on creating a career as a Scientific glassblower. Still, after paying full tuition for the upcoming semester, a corporate-sponsored student bumped him from the program. Scrambling fast for an alternative, he took the suggestion of his mother and grandmother, who were both nurses and entered the nursing program.
