Write an essay where you tell us about what inspired you to pursue a nursing degree.
I decided to pursue a career in nursing after I started volunteering at the local hospital in my area. Volunteering at the hospital has allowed me to observe how much of a significant role nurses play and how seriously they take their job when caring for a patient. Observing the nurses on each floor of the hospital has helped increase my love for the medical field and how I can use it to help others. Nurses are the superheroes that sometimes go unnoticed for their heroic deeds that they accomplish on a daily basis. By becoming a nurse, I truly believe that I would wake up everyday with an energetic feeling of wanting to help as many people as possible. Being able to say that I have helped someone in a significant way or to have cast a positive effect on someone’s life would be an amazing feeling to be able to wake up with for the rest of my life. Becoming a nurse has been a dream of mine that I plan to keep on pursuing and excelling at.
