After graduating Anacortes High school I plan on attending a four year private liberal arts university. I will be pursing a Bachelors of Science in Nursing leading to a career as a Registered Nurse. My main interest is a specialty in pediatrics. Following a month stay at Children's Hospital after enduring emergency surgery and a difficult recovery I decided nursing is what I'm meant to do. The nurses inspired me, and I hope that I can help a family and child in the same way that they helped
The opportunity to challenge myself in UCLA’s School of nursing, in addition to my own personal experiences and traits, supply me with a fierce determination to succeed in my academics, in my nursing career, and in fulfilling my aspirations as a whole.
I am applying for the position of Nurse Extern at your facility and I meet the requirements set by your facility. I am in the process of earning my nursing degree and I will be graduating in December 2016. This position will help me gain the experience needed to take a step into the professional nursing world. This hands-on experience will be essential in helping me prepare myself to work as a nurse in the future.
When I was fourteen years old, my great-grandmother had an ischemic stroke and struggled with Broca’s Aphasia until she passed away seven months later. What she left me with, however, was a gift greater than anything of monetary value: passion for the healthcare field. For months prior to her death, I watched her devote her life to redeeming her expressive language. I was inspired tremendously by her gallantry and decided that I wanted to make a difference in the lives of others. However, when I was applying to colleges, I chose nursing because it was what my parents suggested I pursue as a career. After coming to college with the anticipation of graduating with a degree in nursing, I was disappointed when, after two years of school, I realized
In this personal statement I will address my plans and aspirations for completing a graduate education. I believe that an adequate college education is a necessity in today’s society. There are numerous resources and opportunities available to those who choose to seek a college education. I am committed to continuing my education to achieve my career goal of becoming a family nurse practitioner. Several members of my family are in the healthcare field, as both doctors and nurses. I have had the privilege of growing up observing and learning about the field from a private practice perspective. From this, I developed my interest in the healthcare field and decided that I wanted to become a part of the healthcare field. I want to be able to make a difference in the world and in people’s lives. I have often heard about there being a nursing shortage and the need for more practicing nurses and advance practicing nurses. After researching and evaluating the different roles and job opportunities in healthcare, I determined that nursing is the specific area that is the best fit for me. By pursing my career goal to become a family nurse practitioner, I could make a difference in the world and people’s lives as well as help fill the need for nurses.
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.
Ten years from today I will have already had my first patient. By 2026, I will have reached far beyond my first patient. I do not know exactly how many I will have had by then, but I will have already had one. It took four years of nursing school and training, and I have finally made it to this point. The first patient will be nerve-racking, but I will have been fully prepared for that day. The day I administer the anesthesia to my first patient is when I will have reached success. To a regular person, success means achieving a life goal, such as buying a house or having a family. To a future nurse, success means caring for patients and making sure they have what they need in order to survive.
Last summer, I had the privilege to attend the Michigan Health Sciences Pre-Exposure Academy held at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor and hosted by the University of Michigan Health System Office for Health Equity and Inclusion (OHEI). This summer program took place on June 14 to June 27. This program provided me with exposure to the University of Michigan Medical School and other health related fields. This program gave me the chance to learn and understand better what medical classes were like and the intensity of work I needed to put in to succeed. My exposure in this summer program helped me decide the best pre-medicine course to take. It also gave me an opportunity to meet new people, many of whom shared similar interests with me, and who are still some of my best friends even to today. To conclude, the Michigan Health Sciences Pre-College Exposure Academy helped make the most of my summer vacation, gave me an insight in my future profession, and prepared me for the rest of my high school, and my upcoming college career.

Since starting my nursing career at Penn, my commitment to primary care across the lifespan has consistently been reaffirmed. While the accelerated nursing program has challenged me, I utilize outside resources when necessary while building upon proven personal strengths and learning strategies. This approach will help me succeed through the family nurse practitioner (FNP) fast track program and as I become a leader in my field. Because of my experiences, qualifications, and passion for primary care I believe I am uniquely eligible for the fast track program.
I am highly interested in attending MASH, because I want to learn first-hand the career I want to pursue. I have wanted to be an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner ever since my APRN showed me how rewarding it was to help other people by healing them and being there for them in their time of need. This program appeals to me because I am always wanting to learn as much as I can about health care and what it takes to have a health care career. I could bring a positive energy to this program with a smiling face and positive attitude. I am always willing to learn and have an open mind. Attending the lectures, participating in the hands on activities, and shadowing is exactly the opportunity I have been looking for and would be extremely grateful
Thank you for considering my appeal to continue in the Nursing program. As much as I feel I should have been able to recover from missing 10 days of studying during my Term B classes, Therapeutic Use of Self and Adult 1; however, this was something I was not able to do despite my best efforts.

I believe that nursing is both and art and a science consisting of psychosocial and biological sciences that work together to continually improve the health care field. I believe that with the knowledge and clinical experience from the TVCC ADN program I will be able to provide the best care possible to the people in the community. As a nurse it is important to carry the attributes of being caring, compassionate, understanding, non judgmental, realistic, open-minded, honest, ethical, and moral. I also feel that it is important to maintain sensitivity to all cultures when providing care.
