Write an essay where you tell us about what drives you in your pursuit of your graduate degree.

Leading is something an individual is born to do. It is a character trait that is challenging to learn, but achievable with hard work. I believe I was born a leader. As a nurse, I took care of sick children at the worst time of their lives and realized - sick children are leaders by example. They do not give up, they want to have fun, they are straight forward individuals. I am pursuing my Master in Nursing with a focus on Healthcare administration. As a leader now, I hope to take my knowledge gained in my leadership classes and combine with with the knowledge I've learned along the way from the children i have cared for. The application of these skills are what we need to freshen up transformational leadership within nursing administration! Children offer insight into how we should be as adults and have inspired me to be more, do more, live more.
