Write an essay where you tell us about what inspired you to pursue a nursing degree.
One of my relatives got an illness, so my dad and uncles took him to the makeshift clinic. Since there were no nurses or doctors present to treat him, he died. In the camp, we did not have a hospital and there were only three doctors and they did not have a degree.
My desire to become a nurse practitioner is very high and I am motivated to achieve this dream. All of my experiences have helped me to never give up and to keep moving forward no matter what obstacles are in my way. Being able to go to college and become a nurse practitioner will help me prepare to give back and help others. One day, I would like to go back to the Karenni Refugee Camp and help out all of the thousands of refugees there so that they do not have to suffer like my family and I did.
