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

Nursing is my passion. I love caring for people and helping people. I want to save lives and become and RN first assistant in surgery. I’ve always been interested in the healthcare field, so after high school I became a Certified Nursing Assistant. As a CNA, I cared for elderly residents who had dementia, schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease, and were mentally and/or physically impaired. I loved taking care of them and spending time with them. I love helping people of all ages, so that is when I decided that I wanted to become a nurse and help people in that way. Like I said, nursing is truly my passion and I believe that being a nurse is my calling and that is why God put me on this earth.
