Write an essay where you tell us about what drives you in your pursuit of your graduate degree.
I decided to go into Nursing after being in the hospital for a week with my mom in the Intensive Care Unit before she passed away. The nurses made an impact on me during one of the most challenging times in my life. I decided that when I went back to work that I wanted to do something more meaningful with my life.
My undergraduate degree is in business so I decided to go into an accelerated masters program in which I can obtain my bachelors as well as masters in nursing in two years. This graduate program appealed to me since I will be able to segway into a managerial role in nursing after gaining experience.
I am very excited about the future and that I am able to set a positive example for my kids in a time of change. I hope that I am able to inspire them that anything is possible if you set your mind to it and work hard everyday.
I want to be able to make an impact on the lives of others during their times of need. I know that I can make a difference by going into the nursing field.
