My father set the dream of his son going to college and obtaining a degree. And my mother set the standard for hard work when she had to raise two children, by herself- after my father had passed away. She set the standard by being a single mother, working two full time jobs as a Registered Nurse and getting her Bachelors of Science in Nursing. Something that took her my whole life to obtain. She wanted to be a Nurse since she was sixteen and never lost that drive to obtain that goal.
I also spoke to my school nurse, a LPN, who recommended that I take the nursing route but to still pursue my M.D. I took her advice and after research I found that a Registered Nurse (R.N.) in New York makes about $63,718 annually- according to Pay scale. In only 4 years of school I would be making about half of a doctor’s salary and doing the exact thing I longed to do for years. After this research I decided to apply to Delaware State University’s nursing program where I am now studying to become a Registered Nurse.
The doors that have opened since I decided to attend Texas A&M are those which I would have never came into contact with if I had failed to believe in myself as well as the Aggies who were immediate to congratulate me when I did.I stepped onto this campus with aspirations of being a Nurse one day, with dreams of nurturing those in need of my assistance whenever needed, in clinics and hospitals. Nevertheless, one semester later, I see myself studying abroad one day, representing our school in more than just medical settings, and hoping one day I can give back to this school, if it 's in scholarships, research, or knowledge, what they invested in a small Aggie
To be honest, I never thought I would be able to graduate from high school or even get accepted to college, but after so many years I am achieving everything that I thought of as impossible. I have two important motivation one of them are my parent. I always seen them working
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
Evolution from Novice to a Beginning Professional Nurse Looking back when I started my nursing school, I can proudly say that I have evolved both physically and psychologically. I was not sure if nursing was the right choice for me at first because I had difficulties interacting with people outside my family circle. The first semester was challenging for me because I did not know how to interact with my class mates and felt isolated each time there is a class activity. I joined a study group later that semester and it has been an excitement ever since. Today, I am glad I choose nursing because I have overcome my social fears, learn to be a team player, learn how to prioritize and most importantly learned to manage stress.
Sam and dream of helping people for incense and Obstetrician-Gynecologist brings new life to families every day. Although the hours and college preparation of being an OB/GYN is hard and long,the salary and the joy brought to families everyday makes it worth it. An obstetrician-gynecologist responsibility range anywhere from delivering babies to a mastectomy. An OB/GYN is
My intent is to work there for a year or two, gain skills and confidence. Then I plan to continue my education to acquire my bachelor’s degree and then my master’s degree, I would also like to learn more about hospice and palliative care nursing. Eventually, I would like to develop and sharpen my skills towards hospice and palliative care. Why, you may ask? I had a touching experience with home hospice care, my father passed away in 1992 after a short fight with metastatic colon cancer, the hospice nurses were wonderful and loving, the way they not only cared for him but everyone in the family.
I would care for them to help my parents and I loved it. I had such a passion with my siblings and it showed me that I would soon want to be a pediatrician. This goal related to my personal purpose because these are the academic steps I am going to take to complete my purpose statement. It also relates to my dreams because my dream job is to become a pediatrician. One obstacle is that I don’t get accepted into the college I don’t want to go to.
I am a twenty-three year old mother, full-time student and wife. I have come a long way since my high school years, from a period of inner conflict and lack of motivation to recently receiving an acceptance letter into a very competitive sonography program at the University of Texas School of Health Professions in Houston Texas. I have come to this program to start a career in the field I have always dreamed of being a part of, a dream that began when I was a child playing nurse. Although my interest in the medical field began with nursing, life has taken men through a path that lead me to sonography. Sonography caught my interest at sixteen when I needed a breast exam to diagnose whether I had breast cancer or not and it grew exponentially
After a pause of almost 25 years, I am returning to the college classroom and to say that there are mixed emotions would be an understatement. Sure, I’m excited to start but also a bit fearful if I’m being honest. I’ve worked for large and international companies during this time but getting back to college has always been a goal of mine. No time like the present I guess! I am married with a one daughter who will be heading to college next fall and she is definitely a large and important part of my life.
Being the oldest of seven kids and the absents of dad being around has forced me to step up and help out the family. While doing that I was able to finish high school and still attend college. Since I was a young girl my inspiration was to become a nurse and being able to help other and making a difference in other people’s life everyday. A person who reminds me a lot of me and has inspired me to continue going to school and not letting anything get in the way is Mary Lewis Wyche. She was born in Henderson in Vance County.
I was going to be the first to graduate from an University, that 's something my mom as a single mother wished she had accomplished. Being the first one in my family to graduate was a big pressure for me as well as a motivation. I had the pressure to make my family proud and to set a good example for my children to follow. Thinking about it, the pressure was not only that, but it was also learning to juggle my full time job, with family and school. That was definitely the challenging pressure I was putting on myself.
I do not want to be so wrapped up around myself that I miss the beauty of the people around me. I do not like to see other people hurt and will give everything I have to make the quality of life better for them. As an aspiring nurse, my short-term goal is to work endlessly towards obtaining my Bachelor’s degree in nursing. Once I receive my bachelor’s I want to work as a pediatric nurse or in labor and delivery. However, after a few years of working and getting experience I want to go back to school and get my masters in nursing.
