Write an essay where you tell us about what inspired you to pursue a nursing degree.

When I was younger I was born with an atrial septal defect. This caused me a lot of complications throughout life, I was in and out of the hospital when I was younger and the nurses always made my stay amazing, they changed the outlook of the hospital for me and made me love it while still doing their job perfectly. I was so inspired by their actions it made me want to become a pediatric nurse practitioner. I want to minor in American Sign Language to become a specialist in children who are hard of hearing or parents who are deaf. Being able to help children enjoy themselves while being in the worst part of their life inspires me to work hard everyday to be that change in their life. I will always be thankful for those men and women who helped me every step of the way to be able to life a fulfilling life and avoid severe surgery.
