In life, one will always have to make important choices. One of the most vital decisions one must make in one’s entire life is choosing a career. For some people, choosing a career can be very difficult but for me it was the total opposite. Ever since I was a little girl, I have always felt the need to help everyone around me. My family members would always call on me to take care of them and I always took great pride in it. I always seized the opportunity to take special care of my pets when they were ill. I knew what my calling was even as a little girl and it was to become a doctor. Right now, however I am on the way to becoming a Registered Nurse (RN).
“Definition of a nurse: To go above and beyond the call of duty. The first to work and the last to leave. The heart and soul of caring. A unique soul who will pass through your life for a minute and impact it for an eternity. An empowered individual whom you may meet only for a 12-hour period, but who will put you and yours above theirs”-Anonymous. For the past year and a half, I have volunteered at Blaire E. Batson Children’s Hospital. It has been an amazing experience! My passion for the medical field and career of nursing has been magnified.

I am best suited to be a nurse because I am very dedicated and hardworking, I am a very caring person and hopefully a role model to others.

Nursing is more than traveling room to room, patient to patient, to provide medical care. Nursing is about treating the patient with the utmost respect and compassion. It’s more than providing medical care, but supporting the patient and family. Being a nurse only requires a bachelor degree and a “RN” badge, however, a great nurse possesses that knowledge, along with determination, a positive attitude, compassion, and patience. I believe that I display these characteristics and have a true passion for helping others. Throughout high school, I always had an interest in the medical field and biology. In my junior year, I decided to enroll in the CNA course to pursue my passion for nursing early on. Through this class, I experienced moments of self discovery

My ambition is to graduate St. Francis College as a Registered Nurse with a Bachelor’s degree in the upcoming years. Although majoring in nursing will not be easy, I feel I am prepared for the challenge. At this time in my life I cannot see myself majoring in anything else. As a young girl, with a mother working in the medical field, I was always fascinated going to work with her. Working in a doctor’s office these past two and a half years myself has given me much experience with patients and has made it more to clear to me that this is what I want to pursue as a career. I wish to be a nurse because I seem to get a feeling of warmth and internal satisfaction when helping those in need. I have begun to learn that medicine is not the only cure for people’s ailments. It is the care they receive by those around them whether it is in a hospital, nursing home, or even their own home. This is where I believe that I can make a great difference in people 's lives by helping them recover.

Becoming a nurse will be a tremendous privilege as
Although it may sound cliché, ever since I was a little girl I had the desire to work in the medical field, whether it be a doctor or a nurse. The desire stemmed from listening to my aunt tell stories about operations that she had assisted in, or patients that she had seen and their perplexing ailments. I was never phased by blood, and watching how the human body worked was something that made me excited and eager to learn more. When I was first asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I proudly said, an anesthesiologist. Since that day, I’ve worked hard to reach each milestone that will help me get closer to my goal. My intended future goal is to become a CRNA, which requires the successful completion of my nursing degree.

Registered nursing has always been something interesting to me. Ever since I was little I’ve always hated going to the doctors’ office because my doctor always had cold hands and the smell just made me grossed out. I think me not liking the doctors’ office is what made me want to be a nurse because as I got older I realized that doctors and nurses are just there to help you and that’s all what I want to do is help. This career is important in many ways as well because RNs’ help people when they are hurt, sick, and sometimes even when someone is dying. My dad used to be an RN’s assistant and he has talked to me about the job. He told me that the amount of children he helped over choking issues or allergies was incredible.
