Write an essay where you tell us about what inspired you to pursue a nursing degree.
First of all, becoming a nurse will put me in a position to work with people that need medical care. Nursing, however, is not just about giving medical care. The approach and disposition of the nurse toward the patient makes a lot of difference in the patient’s recovery. The nurse interacts with the patient more than any other member of the healthcare team. I believe with the experience I have gained working as a nurse assistant, I am in a better position to render compassionate care that will improve the outcome of treatment for the patients I will care for.
Furthermore, I am a mother of four children. As the years are rolling by, the needs of my family are growing. Getting a nursing degree will help me to support my family, especially my children as they advance towards higher education.
Finally, nursing is a profession that will enable me contribute to the needs of my community in terms of volunteer work. Many times, disaster strikes in the community. For example, in times of fire outbreaks, hurricanes, disease outbreaks, and even bioterrorism, nursing skills can save a lot of lives. It will give me a lot of fulfilment to be able to help victims of such disasters with my nursing skills. A Mometrix Nursing Scholarship will help me advance toward this goal.
