He completed his nursing program in 2011 from State College of Florida Venice and became a Registered Nurse. Now, he cares for patients in the progressive care unit at the Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg. “The most happiest thing that has ever happened to me would have to be the fact that I became a nurse,” says Sean Ofallon, “I didn’t become a nurse only for the fact that I can make a decent living from this profession but I genuinely love the fact that I help people everyday.”
Not only has Sean Ofallon cared for those in the progressive care nit of Bayfront Medical Center, he has also have had the chance to work with elders and with children with disabilities.

Sean Ofallon seems to have already accomplished many things in his life but he mentions that he’s far from done when it comes to chasing after his dreams and passion. “One day,” Sean Ofallon states, “I wouldn’t mind getting my pilot’s license but in the mean time, I’d love to travel all over the world to places like Europe, Bali or even Thailand.”
