Write an essay where you tell us about what inspired you to pursue a nursing degree.
Being a primary caregiver in the last decade, has really inspired me to take the first step and get all of the prerequisites for nursing done. My family's health conditions included chronic and terminal disease which gradually lead to a complete decline in physical ability. During this time, we had to overcome some obstacles to quality care and in some cases, to getting care at all. I developed a passion to ensure that every person that needs this type of care not only receive the best medical attention but also have the opportunity to enjoy all aspects of life no matter what their condition might be.
I'm inspired to become an RN so that I can fill a need for exceptional care of the elderly, victims of stroke, brain injury and the disabled. I also hope to effect change to policy and practices to ensure that physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs are met for all patients.
