Joseph Hardiman, 45, of Atlantic City, started out wanting to be a cop like his father, who retired from the Atlantic City Police Department. “Every boy wants to follow in his father’s footsteps,” he said. “I was the first born and I liked what he did.” But Hardiman’s father warned him against entering law enforcement because of his personality as a “people person” and the dangers inherent to the job. Both parents — Hardiman’s stepmother has been a nurse for 43 years — pushed Hardiman to be a nurse, and he enrolled at Atlantic Cape Community College. Since 1991, he has worked in AtlantiCare’s Center for Childbirth.
