At the age of ten being raised by minority parents was very difficult for me at the time. At the age of ten I was forced for my English and Spanish vocabulary to be very proficient due to always translating for my parents. At that age learning both languages was annoying, frustrating, and difficult; however that experience shaped me to be a proficient bilingual nurse present and gain benefits by being bilingual. The benefits where the many open job opportunities with the increase pay. This experience also assisted to raise my daughter to speak and write both languages actively although just not the way my parents forced it on me.
As a first generation student to attend college from a family of seven, the journey to a higher education has been arduous and overwhelming. My family gives me all the encouragement I need and are very optimistic about pursuing a higher degree. Unlike myself, my parents did not have the opportunity to attend college. My parents were born and raised in a small town in Mexico where the highest level of education they received was fifth grade. I have worked since I was 14 years old to support my parents with bills, and also saving for college and my own vehicle.

I am very interested in the position as a Registered Nurse for the Medical Oncology Infusion clinic available on the Memorial Hospital of Gulfport website.

The transition from an Associate Degree (AD) nurse to a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing (BSN) is a rewarding time during a nurse’s career. There are many reasons why nurses return to college to get their BSN degree. Some return to meet a personal goal others return for professional advancement or are mandated by their employer to do so. Over the past few years many organizations stopped hiring AD nurses or drastically reduced the number they hire. Many AD nurses who delayed returning to school regret not doing so sooner when they realize the wealth of knowledge gained from getting their BSN degree.
Beth Israel School of Nursing Admissions Department: I am overjoyed that I finally have come to this point in my life where I am ready to take this next step in my career. I have decided to apply for the nursing program at Beth Israel because of the size of the school and the convenience of having it close to my house. I come from a small town in North Carolina and feeling a personal connection with the teachers and classmates is very important to me. In other universities, I would feel lost trying to figure out who to talk to about my concerns. I would love to have a close relationship with my professors and feel the same support I have from my family.

As a child , I honestly did not know what I wanted to be when I grew up. I was always taking care of others as a child, and felt the need to take care of the underdog. I grew up with such low self-esteem , and lacked confidence to become something great. I never felt like I was smart enough to go to college. I struggled with a fast food job as a Manager and knew it wasn’t for me.
