I took a cadaver class last year where we reviewed what we had learned from previous anatomy and physiology classes. The professor of that class is a general surgeon at St. Luke’s Hospital, and he showed us how to do certain medical procedures while we got to practice using the cadaver. We dissected the cadaver as well as learned to suture. That class was by far my favorite class I’ve taken since I’ve been in college, and it made me feel very excited for my future working in the medical

The motivation to pursue a career in nursing has always seemed to be part of who I am, and some of my earliest memories are of my mom and her grandma, both registered nurses, talking about being a nurse and caring for others. Inspiration from my mom and great-grandmother was complimented by one of the biggest inspirations in my life, my cousin Jacob. I was just eight years old, but still vividly remember Jacob being born and visiting him for the first time in the hospital. Jacob was born with Downs Syndrome and had open heart surgery shortly after his birth. As we waited to be able to see Jacob, I was sure I wanted to be one of the people walking around the halls in scrubs responsible for helping care for Jacob and the other children in the
Nursing, a job that not only helps people, but touches their lives. I have wanted to become a nurse since I was 5 years old. Children always say what they want to be when they are little, but eventually change their minds. It has been 11 years since I decided my career, and I still have not changed my mind. I was lured into the nursing field because of the care nurses have towards their patients, it is more than a job.

Becoming a nurse was so important to me because, I wanted to do something in my career that is interesting, challenging, and makes a difference in people's lives on a daily basis.

At the age of seven, I witnessed my mother being rushed to an operating room to undergo heart surgery. I didn’t know it at the time, but this incident would begin to set the stage for my path towards medical school. From then onward, I assisted both of my parents during their subsequent appointments and hospital visits and bridged the language barrier thanks to being trilingual. I also helped fill out paperwork, and most importantly, was there for continual emotional and physical support. Having to take on this role instilled the quality of compassion and empathy within me as I carefully observed the physician’s kind and professional treatment of their patients, including my parents.
When I picture myself, I have faced many challenges in my life and realized how much i’ve grown and changed from them, just in the last year. The most important challenge that I am proud of myself for accomplishing is becoming a Licensed Nursing Assistant (LNA). Obtaining this certificate was a huge step in my life from childhood to adulthood. I became an LNA because my mother encouraged me to since she knew I always wanted to be a nurse ever since I was a child and I love helping other people out. At seven in the morning on July 20, 2015 I arrived at LNA Health Careers School in Concord to a start of a big step in my life, not knowing what to really expect.
When I was growing up, I always wanted to work in the medical field. Freshman year of high school, I joined Student Athletic Training at my school because it exposed me to medical injuries in high stress situations. Even though I was working with an athletic trainer and loving it, I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do; I switched from wanting to be a pediatrician to an oncologist and then an orthopedic surgeon. I settled on becoming an OBGYN because I had just watched my sister give birth to her son. I thought that delivering babies had to be the most important job because I’d be taking care of new life.
Growing up it has always been my plan to seek a career in the medical field, however in the past few years I’ve become focused and very serious looking into my possible career options. In the past I was made aware of the Physician’s Assistant, as I
This year, I experienced both a personal and academic obstacle that correlate with one another. In January, I started the year long Medical Assisting program at my school. Prior to beginning this program, I was so excited to be getting a medically centered education, and learning about the field I wanted to expand my career in. After entering the program and learning that there is so much more to medicine than just taking care of patients, I began to lose my interest. This was shocking to me since, my whole life up until this year, I believed I was going to become an amazing medical doctor.
