The caring star didn't want to waste time waiting tables while she went for talent auditions and so she spent a year working at a hospital.
She says, ""I was a receptionist at this doctor's office and I became friends with this scrub nurse there because I was fascinated by the surgery and I wasn't squeamish. I got fired from that job... and I learned that going to school to be a scrub nurse was just over a year.
""I became a surgical technician, a scrub nurse... I worked a six-month externship at California Hospital.""
