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

May 3, 2015 was the day I realized what I actually wanted to do in life. This was the day I witnessed my favorite cousin give birth to a precious baby boy. I always knew I wanted to have a career in the medical field, but I never really knew doing what until this day. I have always shown interest in children and all the kids loved being around me. I come from a very loving family and I can not help but share my love. My aspiration is to become a Labor and Delivery Registered Nurse or a Pediatrics Nurse. Both careers interact with children but Labor and Delivery focus more on the mother. A Pediatrics Nurse is someone who knows how to talk to children and how to eliminate their fears of doctors. These are the nurses who come in before the doctor and examine the child and make them feel as comfortable as possible.
