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

I have always enjoyed helping people. Ever since I was a little girl I have always found my calling in doing things for others. I get the inspiration to be a nurse from my aunt, a nurse for nearly 30 years. The stories she tells about being there for other people in their time of need motivates me to challenge myself to get an education and really dedicate my life to doing something that matters in the world. Not only am I inspired and motivated to help others, but as a 34 year old single mom I want to show my son that no matter what obstacles are in your path, if you have a dream you can achieve it through hard work, persistence and dedication.
