For as long as I can remember, I've always aspired to become a nurse, a healthcare professional who is always helping patients receive the highest quality care and compassion. As a young child I was often in and out of the hospital, I'd received treatment after treatment and I found myself fatigued by the end of it all. However, receiving high quality care and genuine concern from the nurses made the experience much less excruciating. After I'd learned about that profession as a child I felt that I wanted to do the same for others as those nurses had done for me. Caring for those in need became a passion of mine, and because I know how it feels to be sick in the hospital,
Joining sides with the nurse, my family drilled the idea of nursing into my brain. Nursing and forfeiting my plan seemed to become a necessity for a successful life. After hearing people tell me what I should do, I eventually started to agree with them. The actions of my family along with the way it affected me could compare to when someone tells a lie enough times, they'll believe it to be true. I never believed I wanted to be something more than I did at that
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.
Growing up my dream was to become a nurse because I have always loved to take care of people. I also just knew when I finally started my nursing career I could save the world, While in nursing school, I quickly learned
My dream as a child was to become a nurse, to help people. As a young child, I enjoyed helping my grandmother change my grandfather’s bed and diaper. Also I made sure he took his medications. Even though I loved playing his nurse, it caused me pain view my hero in pain. In my young childhood
My greatest career goal is to become a pediatric nurse, nursing is an extremely challenging, and physically demanding career, however, it is also very rewarding and interesting. The medical field has fascinated me since I was a child, and in the last couple of years I have realized my true passion is to work with children. I have worked with children all of my life, and in my junior year of high school I took AP Child Psychology, in this class a few times a week the students would help out in the preschool that was in the same building. Working in that preschool was one of the best experiences I have ever had. Getting to know the children, helping them with their worksheets, and playing with them really showed me how amazingly creative and compassionate children are, and even though you may have a few problems with sharing, or a couple of cranky kids, overall it was great, and it solidified my decision to become a pediatric nurse.
I found out that I want to be a RN ( Registered Nurse), it has always been in my mind to become and study for a Registered Nurse. For example, I have been really interested in being able to help others by doing what I like and also I know that by every little effort I can save a life. Having an opportunity to help others has always made me happy even if I am not appreciated.
The more I thought about it, the more I realized that I wanted to be a nurse. I wanted to advocate for patients, perform skills, and administer medications. During my orientation at the University of Iowa I switched my
Growing up, I had such big hopes and dreams for myself. As a child, I always aspired to be a teacher because I loved telling people what to do and taking charge. I am the oldest child and would always have to help my brother with his homework and teach him how to do things around the house. I remember how I enjoy quizzing him for his spelling tests. Unfortunately, life did not go as planned and I ended up taking the wrong path in life. However, 13 years and 3 kids later I decided to return to college.
I have had many plans and ideas of who I wanted to be from infancy, displayed my interest through Halloween costumes and dress up with my little sister. But growing up, I realized I can be whatever I want to be so far as am determined and work hard towards my goal. As I grew up and started college, I finally figured out on what I wanted to be and began working towards it. Being an African, I helped my mum nurse and nurture my grandmother when she had stoke. The bond and experiences we shared together before she passed made me a better person and from there, I knew nursing was what I wanted to do. Am pursuing this career path because, I believe people need all the care they can get in terms of healthcare and having a support system.
Whether it was aiding a boater who got a fish hook stuck in his hand to providing CPR to a near drowning victim, I have always had a passion for helping others. When I had completed my enlistment in the military, I decided that I would attend Medical Assisting School. I completed the course with a 4.0 GPA and proceeded to work in an OB/GYN office assisting nurse midwives. This is where I decided that I need to be more involved in patient care than what the role of medical assisting was providing me; I then went back to school to complete the nursing assistant program. I began working as a patient care tech in the ICU; I was in heaven. This is where I wanted to be, helping directly care for these patients. This is how I came to the conclusion that it was my destiny to become a nurse. When I look back now, I realize that I knew all along that I was going to be a nurse, I just had to experience working from the bottom up and grasping all aspects of what a nurse does on a daily basis, which will only make me a better nurse in the end.
Growing up in a family where many of the woman are nurses, made me want to live up to them, be as good as they are, push myself to go to college and reach for the stars. For as long as I can remember, I always wanted to be a nurse then go on for my nurse practitioners. From my mother, to my aunt, and even some of my cousins, I always wanted to be just like them and make a difference in others lives just like they have done for many years. Making a difference,
When I graduated high school, I wanted to have a career in the healthcare field, I enrolled at Valencia College to do a major in Chemistry, because I wanted to complete the pre-medicine requirements in order to attend medicine school. While in school I was working at Walmart, it was a decent job. However, my passion to work on the healthcare field, made me put my pre-medicine studies to a standby, and enrolled in an emergency medical technician program. Upon completion of the EMT program, I obtained a Florida EMT license. Later that year, I started working for Florida Hospital Orlando, the second largest hospital in the nation as a psychiatric technician. While I had many family members who are nurses, I never really knew what nurses did in their job setting. Upon witnessing the amazing job nurses did, and how the patient benefitted from such care, I had found what I was searching all along, I found my calling, from that moment desire grew upon me to one day become a registered nurse. In 2013 I enrolled at Keiser University Orlando, and transferred my credit from Valencia College, to start their nursing programs. Once I finished the nursing programs, I obtained my registered nurse license from the state of Florida, and started practicing nursing at Florida Hospital Orlando’s Vascular Thoracic Intensive Care Unit. Upon practicing nursing I comprehend that each patient is different and have different views of life and belief.
At the age of nine, my uncle asked me what I wanted to become when I get older. In that moment the first thing that came to my mind was a doctor. I felt pressured to choose a doctor or a lawyer due to societal views of a good career. Despite my initial thoughts about being a doctor, developed a passion for children through babysitting, and observation. Which, Inspired me to pursue medicine to become a pediatrician.
Every child gets asked what they what to be when they grow up, just as I was. I knew I had a passion for helping people, I remember always role-playing that I was medically curing someone. As a child I knew it was something I could imagine myself doing for the rest of my life, it fascinated me. I have chosen nursing as my career for many reasons, which include: the joy it brings me in helping others, making a change in someone’s life, and the knowledge you gain on a daily bases.
