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

Going back to school has always been my desire on pursuing my RN degree in Nursing. To gain better skills and knowledge of patient care and assist their needs. I enjoy working in medical field and everything that it has to offer.

I came long way from home as a Bosnian refugee in 1997. Being a war child our education was very limited, due to seeking a shelter and safe zone. This wonderful Country has given me many opportunities on better education. To be able to attend Middle School, Hight School and also, to be the first person in my family to attend College and graduating with Associates Degree in Medical Assisting. This experience is a dream come true not just for me but also for the family that continues to cheer me on.

I have enjoyed the last 10 years in Medical field from Pediatrics, to Family Practice, and also Orthopedics. In hopes that one day being a Registered Nurse in which I can continue providing good patient care and help my community.
