Write an essay where you tell us about what inspired you to pursue a nursing degree.
I deserve to win because I am a strong candidate with clear goals that I have set while working full time in healthcare. I receive a lot of help from my non-traditional support system. Without my support system, I would still be unclear with my future goals and I certainly wouldn’t be applying for scholarships. I also deserve this scholarship because I have a clear understanding of what healthcare is like based on my experience in the emergency department. I have seen first hand what healthcare means to people and what it means for the psychiatric population in my community. As a Nurse, I want to work with our psychiatric population to help bridge the gap between known and unknown resources. My ultimate goal is to pursue a career in emergency medicine. I want to focus on the emergent psychiatric patients where I will strive to give compassionate care to a typically underserved portion of the population.
