When I contemplate why I want to pursue a career in the medical field, I picture my high school allied health class where my enthusiasm for the field first started and I became a Certified Nursing Assistant. I have been around hospitals and doctor’s growing up, but that class opened my eyes to a new world. To learn extensive amounts about the healthcare field and have the opportunity to gain clinical experience has no comparison, to be able to learn hands on at that age, and know that I wanted to care for patients. To see all those elderly residents, to experience helping them and showing them compassion, it made my day, every day I was there. The fact that I can do two things I love, learning new things and helping people get better excites
A person was just in a serious car crash, they flew out the window and broke they 're neck, yet they get through it because of a person who was there to help them through the frightening memories, the pain, and stress; the nurse practitioner. A nurse practitioner does a variety of tasks in a hospital. A nurse practitioner is a higher position than a regular nurse. A nurse practitioner requires a Masters degree from an accredited program, some licenses, passing an exam, and good communication.
This degree will acclaim myself as a registered nurse, this type of nurses are responsible for caring and educating patients about their current conditions and at best to help them improve by carrying out duties such as to “perform physical exams, provide health promotion, administer medications” (nursingworld.org) and much more. I strongly envision that this career choice fits properly for me. The decision to be someone that cares for people, someone who needs to commit to learn, someone designed to have the hunger to work further only seems justifying for myself. The inspiration to be this someone came from my parents, teachers, friends and especially coaches. My parents who always remind me to be the finest caretaker I can be in this big family, my teachers, specifically one of them is Ms.Kelly,who influences me to always output my best self and reminds me that I can reach heights in life, my loving friend, Austyn Ah Choy, who never fails to note to me that I have the ability to show everyone that I can achieve greatness, and lastly my softball coaches who never give up on me and who help build my engagement towards hard work.
I have always, like my dad, wanted to major in something in the medical field. Another reason why I want to become a nurse practitioner is that I have always had a passion about helping others. With this job I can communicate with the patients in their times of intense physical and mental sufferings. For example, If my patients are scared of getting a surgery, I could educate them that surgery is not always a bad choice. I would explain the procedure of the operation in a way that they could fully comprehend. In doing this, I can ease of their fear. It is immensely important to be able to translate the potentially frightening experience of surgery into the vastly beneficial procedure it is. Therefore, I think that pursuing such a career will provide me the opportunity to help patients fight their

Want to send your career helping those in need? A registered nurse (RN) is an awarding job since you are helping so many people and you would be proud of yourself for what you do everyday. As a registered nurse you can help people in different ways, not only physically, but mentally also. Since I was a child, I always wanted to become someone who helped someone in need. I asked my mom what career could I pursue in to help people everyday and she said a nurse, so I looked further into it and decided I would love to become a registered nurse. This was around the time I was in middle school, so when I got into highschool, I already had my mind set on becoming a registered nurse. I have completed pathways and have my CPR license, sports medicine, and emergency medical responder certificates. I am also going to get my CNA license my senior year. My achievements show that I definitely want to be a registered nurse. Becoming an RN is not only challenging by the four years of schooling, but the many responsibilities too.

I am Dustin Hopper. I am currently working in the Emergency Department at a large hospital. My plans and interest here at TCC are to major in the field of Nursing. My plans for the future is to become a registered nurse and to dedicate my life to helping people. I 'm determined to become a nurse to touch lives not only as a provider of health care but also as a teacher. I am committed to excelling personally and professionally in all that I do and to serve as a role model by leading a healthy lifestyle. My hobby is reading. I read story books, magazines, newspapers and any kind of material that I find interesting. Books provide the reader with so much information and facts. They have certainly helped me in my daily life. I am better equipped to cope with living.
I would like to start by sharing a quote from an unknown author: Being a nurse isn’t about grades, it’s about being who we are. No book can teach you how to cry with a patient. No class can teach you how to tell their family that their parent has died or is dying. No professor can teach you how to find dignity in giving someone a bed bath. A nurse is not about the pills or the charting. It’s about being able to love people when they are at their weakest moments.
My childhood initiated a desire to help prevent and mitigate injury or illness; this soon flourished into an interest in the health care field. To help narrow my choices I explored as many science courses as I could. Talking with health care professionals and reading nursing textbooks I found in my aunt’s house piqued my interest in the nursing field and patient care. From there, I completed a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) course which further solidified my decision. Now, I am fully invested in becoming a nurse.
As a first year student I have very specific goals in mind that I hope to achieve through my work in college. My main hopes for the future are that I pass all of my exams in the coming years, graduate and receive my honours degree in general nursing, become a registered nurse and finally get a job as a nurse. Throughout this essay, I have detailed my strengths and the opportunities that will help me finalise these goals along with my weaknesses and the threats that will hinder my progress.
“When a person decides to become a Nurse. They make the most important decision of their lives. They choose to dedicate themselves to the care of others”
Nursing, and everything that it entails, cannot be easily described in just one simple word or phrase. It goes beyond the meaning of a profession and the stereotypical definition of treating the ill. Nursing is the “protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, communities, and populations” (American Nurses Association, 2010, p. 1). Therefore, it is a career that requires dedication, passion, critical thinking, and knowledge. It demands commitment and an understanding of its core values and concepts, as well as the nurse’s own personal philosophy and principles.
Ever since my sophomore year of high school, I knew the medical field was the right choice for me. It wasn’t just the ability to have vast amounts of knowledge about the human body, but to be able to help people. Helping those who need it is a very rewarding idea to me. Although the school I am currently attending is not able to allow me to help people as a nurse. My decision to transfer is based fully on this programs direct entry nursing program. Being highly ranked and having good job prospects after graduation truly helping their students succeed in the world of the medical field. Bringing my good attitude and hard work ethic will help me succeed at this institution as well as my love for volunteering in the community around me.
As I enter my final semester of nursing, I look forward to new nursing opportunities and to apply my nursing philosophy with each new experience. My goal as a nurse is to grow and learn each day, knowing that each day will provide me with new knowledge making me a better nurse than the day before, and becoming a better nurse the following day than the previous day. Nursing is an exciting, fulfilling, and respected profession which I am very fortunate to be a part of and look forward to the journey
