This past December we decided to move back to Virginia because I knew the Dental Hygiene Program at Old Dominion University was the program I wanted to be part of. I have always enjoyed working with patients whether they are young children or adults. During my years of working chairside, I was able to form bonds with patients and gain their trust. I love helping people, especially when it comes to oral health care. These reasons made me want to further my career from a dental assistant to a dental hygienist.
Statement of Purpose As a child, I was never sure on what I wanted to be when I grew up, but was sure it was in the medical field. I would skim through my science textbook at the beginning of every single school year to try and accurately pinpoint when I would get to learn about it. The human body never ceased to amaze my childhood self. Growing up, my family was full of nurses. Both my parents, seven of my aunts and uncles, and three of my cousins all have their BSN.
After becoming a RN I want to dive straight into my career as a neonatal nurse. I don't want to take a break. I should reach my goals within a minimum of 6 years. I would love to work at the Methodist Hospital in San Antonio. My nephew spent his first 2 and a half months in that hospital and that's when i decided to become a Neonatal Nurse.
As a nurse you are also putting yourself at risk to help another person. After high school I plan on getting my nursing degree, and then eventually specialize in pediatric nursing. My goal is to help patients in as many ways that I possibly can. This scholarship will help me financially with my college education. Thank you for taking the time to read my essay and consider me for this
Ever since I was a little girl my dream was to grow up and be a doctor, and i still have that dream. My choice of major is Biology: Anatomy and Physiology to later go on to medical school and become an ER physician. I feel like I have always been push to be a doctor and that is why I just ended up really getting into it more and more as I grew older. I actually grew up with a variety of people in the medical field including my mother, which is when I truly realized that science and the human body fascinated me. I was ten when my mom decided to become a Medical Assistant (MA), and she would always take me to her classes with her and i remember I was just always so mesmerised by the idea of the human body.
“Don’t be nervous.” This was the last thing my mom said to me before I entered my first audition for a ballet summer intensive. I was eleven. I did ok and I ended up getting in but like always there were things to improve on. Little did I know then that the teachers are always looking for three things; technique, confidence, and artistry. The audition was for Nutmeg Ballet Conservatory.
He has taught me that I want to be a pediatric nurse. Because of Chase I will be attending the college of dreams in hopes of getting into the nursing program so I can help children the way he has helped me when I was younger. When Chase, brother, and mother moved, it was unexpected. That was their life always on the move never in the same place for too long. Instead of feeling disconnected and upset when I saw my friend drive off with their bags, I felt blessed.
My friend's family from elementary school have me an opportunity to live with them. My grades averaged out to a C which allowed me to see my junior year in high school. My hopes of becoming a senior and finishing high school were fading fast, I knew I would not make it. But, I managed to see my first and only group home. I needed to free myself of any street activities in order to prosper.
Overall, my decision to switch schools was a much needed and very freeing change. I probably should have switched schools in the middle of 7th grade, but I felt hesitant and didn’t think I should switch schools. I remained at Ocosta for the final semester of 7th grade. I actually ran for a position in the ASB office, promising myself that if I became an officer, I’d
Ever since I was about 8 or 9 years old I always knew I wanted to be something in the healthcare field. I knew that I was interested and fascinated by the human body and wanted to learn more. I was always exposed to the healthcare field because my grandmother was CNA and my great grandmother was a registered nurse. So growing up around them I learned a lot of medical things. When I finally got to middle school and it was my 8th-grade year and we were planning for 9th-grade year, that was where I finally decided that I was going to enter the health science academy at the high school I would be attending.

Every night, my mother scanned through this book, hoping to find a list of possible names. My name might have been Jonathon, but when my parents went back to St. Peter’s for her second ultrasound, they noticed that I was holding my two siblings up with my hands. This made her rethink my name as she now wanted my name to symbolize strength. After another month of researching,
My duties while volunteering included assisting the nurses during hearing checks, changing diapers, and rocking crying infants in special care. During this time I realized that nursing is what I was meant to do. I found my passion as a teen volunteer. During high school I have participated in many different activities and clubs. As a member of River Valley’s NHS chapter I serve as chair of the blood drive committee.
I was meant to save children just like me. One week before I was admitted to the hospital I was living normal like any 17 year old it was my senior year and I was over the moon for what was ahead, the parties, the sporting events the dances, everything. I had no
Now, I have been contemplating about getting a master’s degree in nursing and pursue a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA). For that to happen I would have to start or at least have over a year of critical care experience which I would choose the ED to comply with that requirement. I have been married for 5 years, my wife and I have two beautiful children, a 6-year-old boy, and
