Write an essay where you tell us about what inspired you to pursue a nursing degree.
My dream started all the way back in 2006 when my mother graduated nursing school. I remember feeling so proud of her for pursuing a career. The stories she has told me growing up, made me decide nursing is for me. Throughout the years, I have loved the human body and the things it does when under medical stress.
So, once entering high school, it was a no brainier to pursue the healthcare pathway. I took classes freshman through junior and applied for my school's clinical program. I was one of 14 out of over 60 applicants that got in. Through that experience, I have learned so much and acquired a even bigger appreciation for what nurses do. I want to make the difference I saw other nursing having.
