Write an essay where you tell us about what inspired you to pursue a nursing degree.
Growing up I never met anyone bad. Normal things like small arguments would happen here and there, but everything else was seen through my eyes as perfect. This was until I got into an abusive relationship. After I saw what bad just one person could do more and more bad in the world came to my attention. I realized other people were going through what I was going through and life was no longer sunshine and rainbows. Instead of hurting myself in my own situation I wanted to help others who were hurting no matter what the situation was. After I got out of the abuse relationship I promised myself that I would never let anyone I meet or know go through pain or sadness alone. The fact of the matter is someone is always hurting and I wanted to make sure I would be helping those in need for the rest of my life. The best option I believe and that I have always been drawn to doing was going into the medical field. I would not only take care of my patients physically like my job would require, but also mentally and emotionally. As long as I am able to make a positive impact on someone's life I'll be satisfied with life.
