Having a career is important to me and I will try my best to become whatever I want to be. In this following essay, I will explain how I plan on achieving my goal and aspiration of becoming a sports medicine physician. My career choice is to be a sports medicine physician. I chose this career because it offers everything I like into one job. This job has science, medicine and sports. I’ve always been athletic and loved sports and I’ve always had a passion for science. Sports medicine physician gives me the opportunity to help athletes get better and become the best that they can be. I also chose this job because I feel that it will be exciting with a new challenge every day.
At 17 years old, I had the grueling task of deciding how I wanted to spend 40 plus years of my life. I always aspired to land a career in the medical field, so I majored in biology like most pre-med hopefuls, but during my junior year, I no longer desired to become a physician. The medical field was calling out to me, but the specialty of focus was incorrect. After graduation, I went back to the basics and put my nursing assistant certification to use.
The tasks of a nurse fascinates me; I have had several opportunities to observe nurses in hospitals and I find their work intriguing. I have always been interested in the health field and performing the jobs of a medical professional. Ever since the age of twelve, I have known I wanted to attend a university and pursue a career in the health field. I have always had an interest in my science courses, specifically biology and chemistry and have excelled in these areas. I want to be able to receive the best education possible and make my parents and community proud. I wish to do more for my community than just being a typical nurse and I will be able to do more by becoming a nurse practitioner.
Everyone has their dreams and aspirations of what they want to be. The profession I plan to go into is the medical field. I am passionate about this because it feels great to help someone. Whenever a person is in need, it should be an instinct to help them and this is the main reason I am wanting to become a doctor. Every time I am sick I go to the doctor and they are able to help me get better. In a couple of days my sickness would be gone and I would be so happy and thankful that the doctor was able to assist me. This inspired me to become a doctor because once they finished their prognosis it makes the person feel so much better. Since I volunteer in a hospital over the weekends, usually discharging patients or delivering flowers it helps me see an aspect of what it would be like to work as a doctor. Communicating with patients and nurses has shown me it is a pleasure to help others.
I have always wanted to be a nurse: I do not think there is any task that is as satisfying as treating a patient physically, psychologically, emotionally and spiritually. I first pursued my LPN, and immediately I knew I had chosen the right career path. Every day, no matter how tired and weary I felt at the end of the day, I was invigorated by the sense that I had made a positive change in the lives of my patients. To build upon my capabilities to help others, I then pursued my RN. I am currently in an RN-BSN program and hope to begin a graduate program subsequently to become a family nurse practitioner.
The career path I have chosen to take is in the medical field. My dream from a young age was always to be a nurse. A nurse is a healthcare professional who is focused on caring for people, and making sure that they manage, maintain, and recover patients to the finest state of health (What is Nursing, par.1). Nursing makes up a vast majority of the healthcare industry. There is a huge range of nursing specialties. Nurses work in General and surgical Hospitals, doctor’s offices, nursing care facilities, outpatient facilities, and home health services (Why Be a Nurse, par. 2). Nursing is an extremely flexible career, with one hundred and four specialties and a lot of advanced nursing degrees, so there is something for everyone in this field (Why Be a Nurse, par. 4). Nurses do much more than just help people heal physically. Nurses are there to make sure patients are taken care of physically and emotionally. There are different levels of
My commitment to volunteerism is important to me. I am not apart of Kiwanis, however, I am still involved throughout school and church. I am in 5 clubs, which include the Associated Student Body (ASB), Med Club, Kind Club, Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), and Chelan Project. Meanwhile at church, I help with worship band, tech support and children's ministries. Volunteerism is the chance to be a leader and show the type of person you are.
Rochester's Pre-College Programs will help make me better because the Mini Medical School would further my knowledge of medical careers. As a current high school junior I have explored multiple careers, but I came to a conclusion last year that I would like to be a pediatrician. Last year I participated in the STEP program at the University of Rochester to decide if a medical career was a good fit for me. STEP opened my eyes to all the qualifications needed for my choice career, and taught me how to work with others on medical subjects. As well as present to large groups of people, and working with others. I really enjoyed my summer at the STEP program, and received a scholarship into the Mini Medical School program. Even though I received
I've only wanted to practice medicine since my junior year of highschool. Nonetheless, I had everything planned out; graduate, go to a big university, go to med school and work in a hospital. I wanted to be able to help a 77 year old's heart keep pumping blood even after it failed. I wanted to be able to diagnose and cure anything
As a child growing up, all I wanted to be was a medical Doctor or a Nurse practitioner, I usaully visualize myself with the white lab coat and stethoscope around my neck, and whenever I visited the hospital with my Dad who was a medical practitioner at that time, I never wanted to go back home. Even though I was young and did not know the scope of practice of the profession, I was very sure that I was going to be a doctor or a nurse when I become an adult. Actually, it was all about the uniform and the medical equipment that really intrigued me as a child.
At the end of the day, I want to achieve my goal in becoming an anesthesiologist assistance. I understand that there will be bumps and hardships along the road there, but I am ambitious about my goal and I will try my best. I rather know that I have try and not give up my dream than regretting it later in life. Like people always says, if you fail try and try again until you succeed. I understand that part of life is about failing, I have to pick myself up and move forward and
From those goals, I chose to be a pediatric nurse. It is hard to make a decision on which way should I major in but it is important to follow our heart when we have to make a decision on anything we do. I chose pediatric nurse because I know that pediatric nurse is what I wanted to be, what I love to do, and what makes me happy. I know how much important it is and how much beneficial for everyone. I found myself to be a pediatric nurse as my career because the pediatric nurse gave a great beneficial for every human life, it brought us a good salary, and give us a connection with
My main goal was to take care of my grandparents, but I have also gotten the opportunity to work at a summer camp teaching English. The camp experience allowed me to work with different types of people and develop my people skills, something that I believe is very important for a job in the medical field. I was really forced to step out my comfort zone and grow so that I may go out and teach these kids. Even though working as camp counselor does not have direct correlation with my future goals, it was still an opportunity for me to develop my people skills which is something that I believe is very useful in the future no matter what field I end up
On many occasions my personal goals have come before my professional aspirations. A career in the medical field has always been something I have looked forward to. As a child I wanted and dreamed of being a doctor, however due to the choices I made in life and the priorities that I had not thought of, I have come to realize that my childhood dream may not come true. Yet, I was able to compromise and make short and long term goals that will lead me into a career in the medical field. My long term goal is to enter the medical field world and be a respected contributor to it. I want to be able to help others in the time of need. In
My sights have changed as I have gotten older. I no longer want to become a medical doctor. I may in the far future decide to become a doctor but I would rather be a registered nurse because they deal with the patients more. I also prefer working with pediatric or gereatric patients. Whatever way that I decide to go I will always be helping someone, somewhere.
