I decided to develop a career in nursing due to the exceptional FCC that I have received at the BC Children 's Hospital as a patient. The HCPs treated me and my family with respect, actively listened to and addressed my concerns and incorporated my family into my care. The concepts of the PCC were introduced to me in nursing school and I was passionate about PCC and have tried to implement relevant concepts while having my clinical practicum in adult acute care settings. I found that due to the high patients to nurse ratio and the inadequate time management skill I possessed, it was challenging to build a good rapport with patients and provide individualized PCC to them. The concept of FCC was introduced to me as the standard of pediatric health care during the preparation course of this preceptorship and it immediately drew my attention.
What has sparked my interest is once I knew that my brother was going to school to become a PT I thought it sounded like a good job so then I became an athletic trainer so I can start to learn some now. “My interest in this career is to be able to help people get back to where they once were”(“Barton”). I am currently doing athletic training to help me continue learning about being a PT by helping when someone gets an injury or by trying to give them some strengthening exercises. I have been really interested in this career for a very long time ever since I have known about Physical Therapy and what it does I have wanted to be in the field. This career has interested me the most I think because I like learning more and more everyday and being a physical therapist you learn a lot each day.
However, the biggest reason why this occupation appeals to me is, because I want to have the ability to make a difference and make an impact in my patients lives. Once I have completed the master 's program for occupational therapy, I then want to specialize in occupational therapy for infants. After I have passed all the exams in order to be licensed, I would ideally want to work in a private practice or would like to provide occupational therapy services to the client’s in their residential area. I haven’t had any prior experience with working
My personal characteristics, experiences, and professional and personal goals both align with those promoted by the National Academy of Kinesiology and will greatly contribute to my success in the field of kinesiology and ultimately, as a physical therapist. Some of my most prominent characteristics include my compassion, empathy, and caring nature. My desire to relate and build relationships will aid me when interacting with patients and provide a comfortable environment to perform my duties in the field of Kinesiology. Many of these traits originate from my personal experience as a patient. After a serious injury I was advised to cease all physical activity, and I was desperate to find anything with the possibility of getting me back to doing what I loved again.
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.
The field of medicine and healthcare has always appealed to me from a young age. Specifically, I became fascinated with the causes of illnesses, an interest that fueled my need to research and satisfy my curiosity. Throughout my academic path, I have focused on getting closer to my goals and have worked diligently. Indeed, my passion for becoming a Physician Assistant (PA) was solidified after I gained experience shadowing a physician and became a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). I believe that becoming a PA is the right path for me as it would provide me with the opportunity to serve those in need, and also allow for patient interaction and connection.
I view my parents as inspirational because they try to help others and that influences me to help others just like Scott’s parents . The rest of my friends and family motivated me because they are doing good things in life and I want to be like them, or even better. I feel like everyone can be successful at something if they really wanted

Despite having a difficult life, he still managed to accomplish his dream. He inspires me deeply. I know I will not ever be like him, but with his inspiration, I will hope to accomplish my dream. No one has the knowledge he has given me and for that, I feel ahead of everyone. When I reach my goal I will always be thankful to him.
Because I love helping people as well as the study of anatomy and physiology, I would love to go into healthcare in the future. Not only would I be able to bring a smile to peoples faces, but I will be able to enjoy my work and maintain a positive attitude while working. During my earlier years of life, my parents would always tell me interesting stories, of which they had acquired from their healthcare careers . After a few years of aging and maturing, I had the opportunity to observe what my parents did on a daily basis in their
I am very excited about my future and I feel as if your scholarship will help me reach my goal. My love for sports, fitness and wellness has developed my inspiration for helping others by becoming an Occupational Therapist. Throughout the years, I have gotten the chance to experience different people healing with the tremendous help of someone working in this profession. I enjoy that part of Occupational
