Program of Study and the Professional Development Plan The program of study I have selected is the Masters of Science in Nursing Education Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN) track. The purpose of this paper is to explain my choice and provide a depiction of my personal and professional background. I will also explain professional and personal goals related to the curriculum and the practicum. Educational and Professional Background I’ll commence by declaring I have always sought to be a nurse ever since I was a little girl. I would pretend those little candies were pills, sit at the table, fill out documents, and listen to heart sounds with my little play stethoscope. As I matured, I wanted to be a pediatrician but I got married, had children, got divorced and became a single mom nurturing three boys. I chose an occupation that would afford me the opportunity to attend school and manage my home life at the same time. Well, my boys and I persevered and I proceeded back to school to increase my salary and elevate my career. I looked up one day and recognized I had been a nurse for 20 years and loving it. I am now teaching nursing, and have found that I fully appreciate that as well. However, in order to be a full-time educator, you have to be master prepared. In 1992, I attended Detroit Practical Nursing Center where I became a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). I went on to attend Wayne County Community College (WCCC) and acquired my Associates of Applied Science (AAS)
