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

As a first generation student, I've always wanted to do something memorable that makes my parents sacrifices worth it. Since I can remember, all I wanted todo when i grew up was to help people. It didn't matter what i was doing i wanted to help people. In light of the current world crisis, the super heroes are the men and women who risk their lives daily to help others. The doctors and nurses who selflessly help others, are what have confirmed what I've always wanted to do. To help others in anything I can is what nursing is about. All the sacrifices made along the journey will be worth it in the end to become a nurse.
