Write an essay where you tell us about what drives you in your pursuit of your graduate degree.
A driving factor that led me towards a midwifery career was the experience of my first birth. I became motivated to provide a different experience for as many women as possible. I wanted no woman I cared for to feel disrespected, not listened to, or uninvolved in their care. My goal now is to return to school and complete my Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP). I have been accepted to my desired university and will start the program this summer. This degree will build on my undergraduate and Master’s Degrees in Nursing as well as my 18 years of experience delivering over 5000 babies while supporting and advocating for women. A doctorate degree will prepare me to be a professor of nurse midwifery. By teaching and training others, I can influence the care of so many more women than I can on my own.
Thank you for the opportunity to apply for this graduate school scholarship.
