The last twelve years of my life, I have spent the last four or five years of my life focusing on improving my academics and learning how to become a better person. The one consistent drive that pushed me to succeed academically is my dream of attending Kennesaw State University (KSU). Unfortunately, in today’s economic climate I have to be realistic and factor in out-of-state fees and the impact these fees would have on my family’s financial health. That was until I discovered this amazing waiver that gives out of state students an opportunity to pay tuition as a Resident rather than a Nonresident. The KSU OutKSU Out-Of-State Waiver will make my dream of attending KSU a reality. However, I’m sure many other students have come across this waiver and learned it is not handed out to every applicant; it is limited and should be awarded to the most …show more content…
I have completed advanced Math, Reading, and Science courses in addition to the general required courses. In additional to my high school course work, I have also volunteered at the Chambliss Shelter, Erlanger Hospital, and the Annual Elementary Track Meet. Although I had a rough start at the beginning of my high school career, I have learned some very hard lessons that have matured me into the hard working student I am today.
After high school, my plan is to go to college majoring in nursing. While I am in the nursing program, I will intern for a hospital or a doctor’s office for more hands on experience. Following my RN degree, I plan to pursue my goal of continuing my education and becoming a nurse practitioner. I intend to work at a doctor’s office or a hospital as a RN while going to school to help pay off my loans and be able to be financially stable without needing my mother’s help. MY long term goal is to be a Nurse Practitioner specializing in Women Health. I have a desire to treat and educate those in need of medical

Walden University prides itself on helping students accomplish their goals, and providing the necessary resources to succeed. The interconnection between Walden, my colleagues and myself, are all of equal value because one cannot properly function without the other. Therefore, when all three parts are simultaneously collaborating, it creates a harmonious equation for victory. Being able to find out and navigate the resources available through Walden, developing a positive and collaborative relationship with my peers, and being able to excel in an online work environment appropriately is the formula I need to achieve ultimate success.
My future starts with going to college and earning a degree in nursing. More specifically, i will earn a BSN (bachelors in science of nursing). I plan on attending University of Charleston in the fall. After spending about four years earning this degree i plan to join a traveling company and become a traveling nurse. I plan to only stay in North America when i travel. By becoming a travel nurse, i gain many benefits that most nurses don't get. My goal with this is to work a minimum of five years to gain and save enough money to support and pay for going back to college to gain either a master's or a doctorates degree. When i go back, i plan to specialize in neonatal nursing and eventually work up to becoming a neonatal nurse practitioner or a neonatal doctor. After earning that degree i will go back and continue traveling. Now my goals for accomplishing these future plans are fairly simple: study hard,
I strongly believe that every failure is a learning experience that should be taken as a lesson to grow from. I previously attended a 4 year university that became too much for me; attending school full-time, working 35 hours per week while trying to figure out what it is that I really wanted out of this university experience. I ended up failing most of my classes, putting my health at risk drowned by the tremendous amount of stress and just wanted to completely give up. Looking for a fresh start I decided to leave my university, and attend Norwalk Community College. Though this decision created self-doubt in the beginning, it soon came to my realization that it was the best decision I ever made. Immersed in an environment full of positive people, I was able to grow from the experience.
What is the main thing that students look at before attending a school? Tuition fees. Everyone have a tendency of looking at the tuition fee and setting there life goal if they should spend that much just to attend school. On a Tulsa Community College site, the publisher of “Cost of Attendance” asserts that TCC offers the cheapest fee’s. As the publisher of the site, they state That the “Tuitions fees are $2,800” the “Book and Supplies are $1,560” the “Rooms are $8,694” the “Boards are $2,367” and “Transportation is $1,178”. These are by far the lowest prices to be observed for a high school senior. Tulsa Community College is really doing it’s best to help and support their students. You save a lot of money with these kinds of prices. Now turning
To begin with, I am currently going to East Valley Institute of Technology to become a certified medical assistant. After my senior year I will continue my schooling in order to go into the health care. I will do this by continuing to go to Mesa Community College were I will finish to get my associates in applied science of nurse. When I have finished that I will transfer to the university of Arizona to become part of their nursing program, at the same time work on getting my bachelor's and master's degree. This will help be to become an RN. My ultimate goal is to become a registered nurse working in the emergency room, as well as hopefully travel around the world as a missionary nurse to help others in
As a Richland Collegiate High School student, I am always attacked by stressors in my academic life. The stress provoked by school-related objects often bled into my home and social life. It created an unhealthy environment where I felt weighed down by the stress. Due to the stress, I often lost my appetite and started sleeping less. My mother worried that I was depressed or that I was developing an eating disorder, but I just did not know how to pick myself up and just get things done. I lacked motivation, self-control, and a healthy balance of work and relaxation. Throughout the course, I have been picking up on some of the strategies I can use to help alleviate my stress and subsequently improve other aspects of my life.
I see myself working as a Licensed Practical Nurse and transitioning to a Registered Nurse. I have had experience doing community service at the Claiborne County Senior Care Nursing Home and Claiborne County Medical Center through the Claiborne County Technical Center completing a high school course in vocational education in the field of Health Science II. My biggest challenges transitioning from high school to college will be having good study habits, paying close attention to what is being taught in class, taking good notes and utilizing free time to study. College will be different than High School but I am confident I will succeed in my future endeavors because I can do anything when I put my mind to it this is what I had to do all through school. Eventually I will be on my own so I need to have a good education so that I can support myself even though my mother will help me. I think college is an awesome opportunity to step outside of my comfort zone and meet new people. Therefore, I need to make sure that I surround myself with good friends whom I can trust to bring out the best in me and I will have my twin sister by my side to help keep me on track. College is not cheap so to be considered for a scholarship will mean so much to me and my
The experience that I would like to share is when I was a previous student here at CCU. I was taking classes online and was finally figuring out how to balance work, family life, and school. I was having a difficult time a few weeks with my work schedule and completing my assignments. I had a disagreement with my instructor on the late policy and ultimately decided to quit my studies here at CCU. I transferred my credits to Grand Canyon University and started online classes there. Once I was well into my studies I quickly realized that the grass wasn’t greener on the other side. I began having a hard time turning in assignments late. I prayed to our heavenly father about what to do in my life. I was offered a new position at work that would
A true scholar is one who is able to extract from a learning experience, a holistic and well-rounded interpretation and a world view. Enrollment at GCU, presents the student with an opportunity to pursue that ideal. With the embodiment of the four pillars offered; “academic advancement, Christian camaraderie, extracurricular excellence and wellness and well-being”, (Grand Canyon University, n.d.), one is given the best opportunity to become an even more well-rounded individual. This is what makes the difference by comparison to a non-faith-based university; a belief and a system that operates on the premise that a “quality education coexists with faith in the 21st century” (Grand Canyon University, n.d.). Here, there is a focus on delving
When I was seven, I had to witness my older brother be kicked out of the house. This was such a traumatizing experience because my older brother was my role model. Additionally, as a young child, my little sister and I were frequently home alone due to my parents always working double shifts. Thus, once my brother left, I had to take on his responsibilities; consequently, I learned how to be a leader at a young age. This experience has allowed me to develop values such as excellence, leadership, truth and service that will contribute to the vision and legacy of Howard University.
The Wayne State University School of Medicine has become a top choice medical school for myself due to their focuses on leadership in medicine, community mentoring and outreach, and service based learning. Centered within the urban and evolving city of Detroit, the Wayne State University School of Medicine affords its students the chance to receive their education in, and provide service within, a very rich and diverse patient population. Being immersed within, experiencing, and understanding the diversities of others allows for students and professionals alike to find their identities, meanings, and purposes through connections with people in all walks of life. In this way, Wayne State has the ability to offer its medical students an unparalleled
I would like to start off this letter of appeal by thanking you for the opportunity to explain my past mistakes and outline my plans for improvement in upcoming semesters.
Education is the often touted as the key to reducing socioeconomic inequality in today's society, but recent studies suggest that the education systems in the California may not be effective in serving its community college students. The California community college system supports 2.1 million students throughout California's 113 institutions (CCC Key Facts). According to a 2011 study conducted by California State University, Sacramento, 48% of community college students complete a degree/credential within 6 years. Specifically in 2009, the San Francisco Bay Area had only 7% of community college students being able to graduate within 2 years (Figure 16, Moore). These low completion rates reflect
I will bring in what majority students have brought, into Rice University: excellent performance in academics as well as sports such as Cross Country and Track. The thing that makes my experiences unique is the obstacles I have overcome into this position. The conflicts I had faced were not being able to speak English and adapt to the American culture as quick as I could when I arrived here.
