The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program has helped me to achieve the goal of outcome six by enabling me to critically analyze policy, laws, and ethics to develop, evaluate, and advocate for change that shapes financing, regulation, and delivery of nursing and health care services. At the start of the DNP program my knowledge of health policy, laws and ethics were very limited.

Scholarship Personal Statement Throughout high school, it has been my dream and aspiration to someday become a registered nurse, in the future. Nursing has always appealed to me, even though I do not understand the many facets of a nursing profession. I have always wanted to be involved in working in a healthcare setting as I spent numerous time in the hospital during my childhood, and for the birth of my daughter in 2015. I have been away from academic studies for 4 years, but I made the decision to return back. My intention of returning back to study is to build my language literacies and study skills that will assist me in a higher level of education and in achieving my aspiration of becoming a nurse in the future.

We either want to please the facility, the Doctor and the manager or we are forced to do whatever we can to safe the patient's life. But at what point do we stop and think.
After completing a career project in the sixth grade, I have not been able to see myself working in a career other than nursing. As early as I can remember, I was interested in books of the human body and having my mom tell me her experiences as a certified nursing assistant. I knew I wanted a career involved with helping people. My fascination with the human body became visible around the age of five.
