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

The field of medicine has been a major interest to me since I was young. When I first decided which classes I wanted to take in high school, I found myself drawn to the medical field and decided to embrace the inherent pull towards medicine by focusing on healthcare related programs and opportunities.

Each class has equipped and enriched me with a broad range of knowledge for all medical fields that I would like to pursue. Being a member of Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) gave me the opportunity to shadow dental technicians on base. Being able to learn first-hand from them will help me throughout college.

I find the thought of taking care of others very intriguing and embarking. These career paths will enable me to improve myself seeing as I have always been a caring and patient person. I know that nursing and dentistry can be demanding and challenging. The satisfaction and fulfillment that would come with the job is quite rewarding. Over the years, my interest in the medical field has evolved tremendously.
