I chose nursing as my profession because of the ability to legitimately make a difference in people’s lives. As a nurse, I know that I’d be affecting other people’s lives not only inside of the hospital, but also outside of the hospital. Inside the hospital, I’d be able to interact with and assist patients to a better state of well-being. The ability to interact with patients on a day-to-day basis is a one of the many reasons I chose nursing; I’d very much like a career where I am always interacting with others. I enjoy expanding my knowledge of the world around me, and I feel that these day-to-day interactions would allow my view on the world to grow because I’d be in constant communication with patients of all kinds. Outside of the hospital, I’d be able to give to the community the knowledge that I know regarding health care that people can use within their own homes and for themselves, and I feel that these little things learned can really go a long way.
Long term, my goal is to acquire a Masters in Nursing. Professionally, I aim to work as a registered Oncology nurse, combining both treatments, nutritional guidance, and holistic care for cancer patients and persons at risk for cancer.

Mentoring women undergoing mastectomies and cancer treatments along with their families has become significant and rewarding.

A nurse should have a life long education to gain current knowledge of the best practice. Having the education will help you to efficiently and effectively give care. I want my patients to be educated, but I also want to learn from them. Nursing comes down to caring, for your patients and yourself. I always want to be the healthcare person that the patient feels most comfortable with. Nursing is a career that has so many emotions tied in it; your day can go from good to bad, or vice versa, within the hour. It is also a career that is very respected and honorable to do. As in every job it has its cons, but to know every shift that you have helped someone or changed their life for the better, is something that most people cannot say.

I have wanted to be a nurse since I got sick in 5th grade. I had lost kidney function, I was dehydrated, and had lost 25-30lbs in one weekend. I had to be hospitalized for a week and a half. And the nurses helped me through more than I could have ever expected. They helped me with emotional issues, feminine issues, personal issues, and so much more than they should have ever expected. And between the ages of 9 to 15 I was in and out of the hospital and the only people I can remember who helped me the most was the nurses. All nurses have at least one thing in common—they want to help people. Not only do they play the role of caretaker for their patients, but in some circumstances, they can also be a friend, a confidante and a trusted adviser. It takes a special kind of person to fill all of those roles the way

Growing up my mother worked as a nurse which consequently built a strong respect as well as admiration for the profession. However, up until the day I left for college I never considered this career for me. As a last resort I made checklist to try and determine the major that best fit my aspirations for the future. Nursing immediately jumped out at me and since then I have been infatuated with the goal of becoming a nurse.
Nursing is not only a career, but a way to give back to the community by enhancing and maintaining the health of others individuals. Throughout my life I have witnessed kindness and selfness among many nurses that have impacted and helped shape my future career choices and life immensely. The nursing field is full of endless amounts of opportunities that I am excited to experience. I personally believe that nursing is right for me, because I possess the values and characteristics of compassion, empathy and the ability to listen and communicate with others which are similar to those of the labor and delivery nurse in the movie, The American Nurse. My decision to become a nurse has come from several different factors, which include working around

The career I have chosen that I want to do is to be a police officer because I have always wanted to be in the military or be a police officer, it is a well paid career, and I will enjoy it. I have always looked up to police officers ever since I was a little kid. Police officers have always been my hero’s. As I started growing up and looking for a career field to go into I knew from the start I would not be able to sit behind a desk for the rest of my life. I thought about multiple different options such as military, mechanic, and firefighter for a long time. I finally decided on wanting to be a police officer after talking to people from the different career options and researching the options because it seemed like it would fit for me.

Patient advocacy is an essential role of the nurse caring for a patient with NHL. Cancer patients may have a tremendous amount of physical, emotional, and educational needs to be met. Patients and families rely on nurses to provide them with information to guide them with successful coping and making informed decisions regarding their care.

This task may involve referring patients and their families to support groups, playing the role of a care facilitator, working hard on improving treatment outcomes, and coordinating activities to enhance the patient experience and deliver quality care (Vaartio-Rajalin & Leino-Kilpi, 2011).
I have been practicing nursing for four years; at this point, I perceive myself as a proficient nurse. I am competent and able to see a holistic views of each patient whom I care for.

A good nurse will learn from his/ her own experiences, both good and bad, critically think through, and apply what he/she learned into a real world of nursing profession. From my personal view, theoretical
