My love for nursing began early in my life; in high school, my continuing desire to become a nurse resulted in my applying and being accepted to Midwestern State University. There, I received a BSN and became a registered nurse. My experience at Midwestern prepared me for a successful career by instilling confidence within me as I joined the workforce. As my experience grew and years went by, I became eager to further my education and pursue my master's degree. Then life happened: the two-legged version that requires love, compassion, energy, and time. Now that my child is in school, with the support of my family, I am ready and dedicated to become a family nurse practitioner.
Without the nurses the doctors would be unaware of their patient’s status. It is highly important for the nurses to collaborate with the doctor in patient care. The nurse I followed was always aware of how her patients were doing. She sat by her patient’s room that way she knew what was going on at all times. With help of the CNA the nurse was able to provide proper care to each of her patient’s.
I knew I could be a nurse when I watched blood ooze from my brother’s face. His eyes dripping tears, and body shaking from being scared, he did not know what to do. I however, did not flinch once when I wiped the blood off his small face and hands. He was just two and I remember thinking how I had to fix him. I had to make sure his nose, his forehead, and the of side of his face was okay. I did not think twice about touching blood, or how his whole nose was black and blue. In that moment I was selfless. I chose nursing because I am capable of putting others before me. I am selfless enough to understand what it means to be a nurse, and have to be a mother, a daughter, and a whole family in a patient’s time of need. I am independent, and strong enough to deal with challenges and make the right decisions. In my soul I know I am meant to help people and fix their hurting and sadness. I chose being a nurse, because I am

I came into the nursing program as a caring person and I love helping others which has always been why I wanted to be a nurse. I never knew how profound that caring could be until finishing the program and learning everything I have learned. I learned that caring in the first semester meant that you had a basic knowledge of how to care for patients such as basic physical exams and just taking the time to talk to them as though they were your family. With each semester I developed deeper levels of caring by making sure that not only I understood their disease or illness that the patient did as well. I cared that they had the knowledge and tools to help control their disease. I cared that they understood the need for new medications or physical
