I missed a lot of school growing up because of my cancer treatments and surgeries, but I never fell behind, and I always had teachers that looked out for me. For high school, I went to J.M. Tate High School, and graduated with highest honors. I loved school from kindergarten all the way through
Career Goal: Nursing According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the healthcare industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the country today. That being said, getting a career in the medical field is a very wise decision. The reasons I want to be a hospital administrator are because I want to help people, the knowledge I will have once I am starting my career, and the numerous benefits.
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
He is in his first semester at Pasco- Hernando State College. Also, he has narrowed down his major to Emergency Medical Technician or Registered Nurse. Sylvester is drawn to the medical field because he wants to help people. He will also be the first in his family to pursue this career path.

I have been pursuing a career in medicine to help people live long and healthy lives for themselves and their families. It has been 18 years since I made the decision to pursue a career in medicine and there are three influential experiences that have shaped my interest in medicine:
I love sports. One of my goals is to start my tenth grade year and I know without working my butt off everyday in there I'm not gonna be reaching my goals and am gonna be a benchwarmer all year but, like I've been saying if I do what I need to the best I can do them I might start who knows. Another one of my goals is to squat more than 200 pounds before next season. I know your thinking what's this kids problem what so great about squatting. Well to me it's not about squatting that much it's about being up there with the top kids who lift a lot and about getting stronger everyday.
My Experience in the Health Care Studies Program It feels like just yesterday I was a freshman in college unaware of what was before me. Now that I am about to be a graduate, reflecting will be bittersweet as this road comes to an end. When I was in middle school and high school I was always attracted to the medical field. Though my interests changed from wanting to be a doctor, to a vet, and then to an occupational therapist, my “dream job” always stayed in the medical realm.
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.
After nearly losing my eye, nearly having my veins and arteries give out, and watching my father become unresponsive, I knew that I wanted to go into the medical field. This became a part of my very being, I strove and strive to learn as much about first aid and treatments as I am able. As it came time for me to think on a career path I was forced to think about the logistics of college pricing and efficiency; I decided on going through an EMT course, attempting to get a job to pay for the rest of my schooling as a nurse or search and rescue
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.
Overcoming obstacles and improving myself through clinical experience, I learned of other essential qualities needed for success in the field. My greatest time of growth was during my junior residency in internal medicine. Working closely with physicians and developing a rapport with patients, I greatly enjoyed experiencing several areas of the field, from outpatient medicine to ICU to CCU. While the days were long and demanding, I left each night knowing that I had helped relieve my patients’ illness. That’s the reason I am only applying to Internal Medicine as my career; I am the type of person who has always had an acute awareness of other people’s suffering, which has led me to be an empathetic and caring physician.
Every Resident Advisor (RA) answers the on-call phone with a bit of apprehension, but when the caller tells you that they are concerned that their friend may hurt herself physically, all your nerves stand on edge. It was this experience and others like it that reaffirmed my decision to pursue a career in the Healthcare field with a specific interest in mental health. My life’s journey began on a small multiracial island where we believed and practiced “every creed and race find an equal place,” these words taken from our country’s national anthem. In our multicultural society, religion played a large role in influencing the societal norms and practices which were of a conservative nature.
