As a dedicated student, dismissal from Kaplan University has been an eye-opener. While I blame no one other than myself, it has been the hardest year of my life. My education has been hindered this last term due to a family illness. I failed to acknowledge the importance of my studies and allowed the sickness of my grandfather, my caregiver, to effect me. My grandfather moved in with me from Arizona to be closer to Sloan Kettering Hospital after being diagnosed with Lymphoma. Roles quickly reversed as I became the main caregiver for my grandfather, surgeries, chemotherapy and doctor’s appointments became my life. My grandfather has always been my greatest advocate, particularly with my studies. My dismissal has been heart-breaking to both him
I am writing this letter to explain the circumstances of my withdrawal from Galen College of Nursing in 2013, and to ask for readmission so I can complete the LPN to ADN Bridge program at Galen.
In my first three years of high school, I have had many struggles that have taken me on a different track than what I expected. My freshman year I had received four concussions. Some of these were sports related while others just happening by accident. These accidents left me missing tons of school and made me fall behind. Classes were hard to keep up with mentally as well as emotionally. Not being able to keep up with my classes lead me to having to take incompletes in a couple of my classes and making them up at a later date. Through my freshman and sophomore year I struggled to heal and spent most of my time with doctors rather than teachers at school. Once my junior year came, I started to return to my old self and began being able to handle
I have learned that given the opportunity, I can change my life and set amazing goals to achieve. Although there are things I will never be able to change, it should not and will not define the person I truly am and strive to be. This has fueled me to reach for and realize the next bright moments that are yet to come through hard work. I take wanting to be a Registered Nurse very serious and am working extremely hard to reach my goals. However, one of my first goals years ago was to get a CNA license. So I reapplied after adequate time had pasted and on May 14, 2015 I went before the Arizona Board of Nursing and was granted my license (CNA LIC#100046606). They have also cleared me to take the NCLEX exam and upon passing, I will receive my RN license. I am exceedingly looking forward to continuing my education and being one of the compassionate, loving, caring and well-respected registered nurses. I have included copies of some letters of recommendation that were written to the university from my current employer as to my character, dedication and passion. I am asking the committee to please reconsider my request and allow me to continue my education with Grand Canyon University and to be part of the caregiving community in New
Do you have any concerns at this time regarding your ability to complete the Nursing Program? If so, Please describe.
The school of nursing also stands out as a national leader when it comes to education of health professionals. I am very eager to start my experience as a Rutgers Undergraduate and I believe that it’s well known academic curricula of the baccalaureate-nursing program would be consistent with what I have learned so far. Not only do I feel that being accepted into the program would prepare me to become a nurse who is prepared to provide quality health care needs of the diverse population, but will also give me the local, national and international leadership skills for great health care
I experienced no moment of divine intervention, nor followed the example of a respected relative’s career, my career development decision making was based on a gradual recognition that nursing would be the perfect vocation for me. I have come to realise that nurses are faced with considerable emotional and professional demands, taking responsibility for the quality of people’s lives, which can be seen as a major challenge. I believe I am a person who welcomes, enjoys and would embrace this challenge. My main source of inspiration to become a nurse comes from an innate desire in making a positive difference in people’s lives. I am fascinated by all aspects of nursing and I want to go on to expand my knowledge and develop my transferable skills and ability in caring for others. Studying nursing at University will give me work-related learning and offer me

While self-accessing my overall performance in English 111, I would say I have done fairly well. I learned a lot about English and mostly about myself. I learned what I needed to work on and improve. Reflecting on my overall performance, I will start by explaining my participation in class, my performance in two areas, how I transitioned into the role of a college student during the semester, what process I used to be successful in English 111, and my overall skill development. This past semester has been a real challenge for me, as well as a huge eye opener. I will start my explaining my participation in English 111 with Dr. Kennedy.
In creating this portfolio, I am inclined to maintain a professional e-handbook, so to speak, of my educational and professional accomplishments over the years that reflect growth and development in my quest to be a competent nurse. Creating an e-portfolio allows for the safe documentation and archiving of my information that potential employers can have easy access to when I am in the process of seeking employment opportunities. Having an e-portfolio is a more efficient and effective way of utilizing technology to be more organized in keeping track of important information that could otherwise get lost or destroyed due to adverse events such as floods or fires.
My eyes were closed. I could not move, but I could hear everything. Doctors were yelling and frantically scurrying all around me. I could hear the shouting of medicines and dosages as doctors pushed fluids into my IV. Suddenly, everything went blank, and that 's all I remember from my first hospitalization.
My freshman year of high school was difficult for me to adjust to and I did not perform to the best of my ability on my biology honors midterm. Due to this discrepancy, I was unable to be accepted into the Science Honor Society in junior year. Although disappointed that a singular grade had the ability to decide a part of my future two years later, I continued to work hard, especially in my science courses. Junior year, I decided to challenge myself and take an AP Physics course, even though I had never taken a physics course prior. This class was excruciatingly demanding and a new experience for someone who had never taken an AP class before. Despite the challenge, I managed to earn decent grades that I was still proud of. Unfortunately, to

I’m only taking 5 classes this year, which makes my life a little less stressing. My toughest subject this year was probably Economics. It was something different, a new experience. I was introduced to a whole new level of vocabulary and it was tough to memorize. I also did horrible in the tests, but I was able to push through that and I managed to pass the class with a B. My weakness this year was probably not having enough sleep. I get cranky when I don’t get enough sleep, and I realized I can’t focus when I’m in class. My strength this year was probably becoming more organized and setting a specific schedule for myself everyday. Since I have to work, I need to make specific time for my homework. I also need to have specific time to shower and get ready for school in the morning. The project I’m most proud of is probably my first semester college algebra project. I invested a lot of time on the project, making sure I had everything done correctly. Although I didn’t get a good grade on it, I know that I invested time and put hard work in it. The assignment that was not as good as I expected, was my Macbeth essay. I was under pressure, since it was part of my English final. I didn’t try my best because I was in a rush, but I should’ve studied the night
