Write an essay where you tell us about what inspired you to pursue a nursing degree.
Stereotypically, a part of me wants to become a nurse because my mom is a nurse. This is because, like most daughters, my mom is my heroine. Moreover, I have been blessed to have another great parent in my life, my dad, whom is my hero. Andre Flemings (dad for short) lives simply: loves all of his 8 children above all others, waits tables at the Marriot, drinks and smokes minimally, so, consequently, has coronary artery disease. I suspect this is why the heart was the most fascinating topic in anatomy for me. I love reading on coronary circulation and the seamless flow of blood through the heart. I also am intrigued by topics that discuss what obstructs this supposedly seamless circulation in some people like my dad; a narrowing of the arteries for instance, or obstructions like cholesterol impeding coronary blood flow. This interest led me to the decision to become a cardiac nurse. A challenge for sure.
