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

I was inspired to pursue a degree in nursing because I enjoy helping others and the medical field has always been a special interest for me. My interest in nursing began with my mom when I was just a little girl. I grew up watching her work in a hospital as a phlebotomist, and it seemed like such an interesting job to me. After work, she would come home and watch shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, E.R., Scrubs and House and these shows caught my attention because they always dealt with new and interesting things that I loved watching as well. I eventually want to join the U.S. Army as a combat medic specialist and obtaining a Bachelor’s in Nursing is just one tiny step towards my end goal.
