Just a random afternoon and I'm scrolling through TikTok. What? Don't judge me...On my page came across AaronSummers23. 

AaronSummers23 has posted quite a few TikToks and the majority of them are about Grand Rapids.

After a deeper dive, I learned that Aaron is a recent nursing school grad. He is now a full time nurse at Spectrum Health. He commented this on his Instagram account:

"Today I finished the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life - nursing school. I recently accepted a full time RN position at Spectrum Health and cannot wait to give back to the Grand Rapids community.
From this day forward, I pledge to take care of those having the worst day of their lives. Car wrecks, gunshot wounds, burns, COVID, cancer...rich, poor, pastors and prostitutes - it doesn’t matter who you are or what happened to you - I pledge to take care of you.
Sleepless nights, 5am clinicals, and many tears, all poured into those two letters after my name:
Aaron Summers, RN "

Aaron says he's a

  • Registered Nurse
  • Dog lover
  • Swimmer
  • French fry enthusiast

On his Instagram account he has nearly 4,000 followers and on his TikTok account has over 15,000 followers. No, this is not a dating post...I was just excited for a GR resident to come across my FYP. When I found out he was a nurse and has a goal of helping those in our community, I decided to give him some props! Hey, Aaron keep up the good work and thanks for becoming an essential! Now walk like a penguin...
