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

All of my life my grandma has been someone who I look up to. She had an entire family and still made time to go to school for a nursing degree. She has spent so much time pleasing everyone that she finally decided to put herself first and go back to school. I have always had a heart for wanting to help people and at first I was going to be a teacher, but I didn’t think it was enough for what I really wanted to do. I could always go back to being a teacher in the future, but right now while I am at such a young age I can really focus on getting my nursing degree. My grandma told me all of her stories about working in the ER and how she saw so many people come in and leave. She also talked about the bond she had built with some of her co-workers and that really inspired me to keep going and pursuing this degree. My GPA might not be the best right now but I can always improve in my future years of going to school. I can work to improve my GPA, but I put my future into Gods hands.
