She has demonstrated her knowledge of nursing by receiving her education and working with others in healthcare. I look forward to being like her one day and pursue my dreams, just like Angie did. Motivation is key throughout this whole process. I have always wanted to be a nurse since day one. Seeing my father battle sickness for almost fourteen years confirmed my decision.
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.
I thought I knew what career path I wanted for my future, with that in mind, I sought a degree in Fitness and Human Performance to continue with a career in Occupational Therapy. In this career choice, the way I got to help patients was through therapy. While taking classes, I realized Occupational Therapy is not what I truly was passionate about. I decided to take my mother’s advice and choose what I truly love to do, which is to help people all around and I believe the nursing program would be the best fit. I am currently completing my certified nurse program to proceed with a job as a patient care technician.
Pursuing a career as a nurse has been my primary goal since I was a child. I have been doing a lot of things that would help me get in and do well in the field of nursing in every way possible. Due to the extensive amount of my academic and professional work experiences, I am assured that I can do better than most people with the same goal. There are so many high schoolers who do not really think about what they’re going to become until the last minute. Unlike them, I have decided to take as many health and science related classes as possible, that would help me increase my academic experiences and be ahead than most students.
To be honest, I did not even decide that this was the career I wanted until earlier this year. What really sparked my interest was the fact that I have wanted to care for people since I was a little girl, and by getting into the medical field I would be assisting numerous people at once. When I am able to aid others I get a sense of happiness. I really

I have helped my mother, who is a CNA, with my uncle who has MS. When I was helping her was when I noticed that becoming a nursing assistant will be my long-term job. I have learned so much from my mother and other CNA’s. I want to continue my education, so I can help the people in need. This paper will explore the job description, requirements, and salary expectation, including the path for a nursing assistant.
I took a nursing assistant class through a dual enrollment program. I performed clinical hours at Golden Living Center in Rome, Georgia for CNA training. I took this class not because I wanted to become a nurse but because this was the only healthcare class left that I had not taken. I did not want to go senior year without taking a class in healthcare because I did not want to forget important skills that I had learned in prior classes. This class taught me a lot about the medical field.
My teachers have pushed me to achieve my dreams with high expectations and interesting and useful lessons and without their presence in my life, I would not have achieved all that I have now.

I want to strive to be a better person, so I could make a change in a young person’s life and know when I go home on a night, that I made a difference and that's why I want to pursue my career as a social worker. When I realized that I wanted to be a social worker, I was in my junior year of high school. I knew I wanted to help people, children especially, but I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to go into. I thought I wanted to be in Neonatology or another profession like it. When I first witnessed a social worker, I was getting a treatment in the hospital and saw a social worker working with a family who child had a broken pelvis.
Although I was focused on pursuing a career in the law I was also intrigued by the medical field. I was exposed to the world of medicine from a very young age. My mother, sister, and grandmother all had careers in the field. I was always the selected person to help them study for a quiz, practice a procedure on, and to hear about their stories from work. Their careers seemed fascinating.
As a hopeful future undergraduate at IUPUI, I am eager to participate in the nursing program. Currently I am taking a class at my high school that will allow me to become a certified nursing assistant if I pass the state exam. Although I have only started this school year, I can tell that I have found my passion through nursing. With this simple goal, I plan to focus on my school work and dedicate my time at IUPUI. Besides the school aspect, I also want to participate in numerous extracurricular activities offered.
I am a registered nurse and currently hold an associates degree. I am actively enrolled in TESU working towards my Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN) which is the degree most employers seek when hiring nurses. Once I have earned my BSN, which will be in the summer of 2016, my plan is to then take certain certification courses. I am very passionate about learning wound, ostomy and incontinence care (WOC) and will take the classes and state exams I need to earn my certification shortly after graduating TESU. Wound, ostomy and incontinence care needs are growing, especially in the home care setting, and this will allow me to apply for positions that are more tailored to what I wish to specialize in.
I’m currently enrolled in the Leadership and Management track. When I previously selected this specialty I was working as a Director of Nursing/Administrator for a Home Health Agency, later on I decided to continue my education fulfillment but changing jobs. It is not very well defined for me if upon completion of my education I will look for a different job position or stay where I’m right now, where currently, there are not management opportunities. Nevertheless, I truly believe my education will take me to better places and open new doors for me. I currently work as a case manager.
