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

What has inspired me to pursue a nursing degree is coming from a ruel, small town nurses have a major impact on our way of life. They are our life line and helps save many lives, that could be lost due to not have many doctors in this town. With the impact that nurses have in my hometown, I would like to be able to become a nurse to not only be able to save lives, but to be able to serve and give back to community and town. The nurses where I live give so much time and energy to the community and are the heart of this town. I would like once obtaining my nursing degree to be able to work at the community hospital and take care of many people who have been able to take care of me in the past. I not only want to be able to give back through working at the hospital, but also want to help be able to influence a child to want to become a nurse when they grow up as well. I want to inspire children to change the world through nursing, because it has such an impact on the lives of others.
