Write an essay where you tell us about what inspired you to pursue a nursing degree.
When I was younger I was in charge of taking care of my brothers, who both had multiple various injuries. I took on this responsibility due to my mom being blood squeamish to the point of incapacity. It was my way of helping relieve some of the pressure on her, and I found I loved doing it. Taking care of people and helping them heal has always been something I enjoyed doing. This history of taking care of my family played a big role in my decision to look into nursing as a career in high school.
When I told my family I was thinking of pursuing nursing they all showed me overwhelming support! My family motivated me to continue researching in even more depth, focusing on what a career in nursing entailed and supported me in my decision to pursue nursing. They have even been a big help in my search for scholarships to pay for my education. They are a great support system. Things aren’t always easy financially at home because it’s just my mom and her four kids, which has added fuel to the fire of my passion for nursing. My family is always super supportive of me and I just hope to be successful enough to help them out.
