Write an essay where you tell us about what inspired you to pursue a nursing degree.
What motivates me to achieve my goal in becoming a nurse is knowledge. I have come to believe that knowledge and the application of that knowledge is power. The more we learn, the more we know. The more we know, the wiser we are. The wiser we are, the better we are at making our lives work and life's problems. Not only our own but of others too, especially in a hospital setting. I learn to grow myself, to know more, to be more, and to contribute more. My mother, a nurse, has told me, "The journey of learning never ends" and I truly agree. What motivates me to learn is my belief that everyone has so much untapped potential and there is much we can do and achieve, and through learning we can all strive to unleash our potential.
