Growing up I was always raised in a nice environment. Dinner at our kitchen table, trips to Reno, Six Flags to see the cute dolphins, we had a great bond between our family. When I was in elementary school, my friends and I talked about our families and what we were going to do during the weekend. My classmate told me that he was not able to do anything for the weekend because his parents would always be fighting. Quickly I began to have sympathy for a kid that I knew was a trouble maker.
Many assume babysitting can be done by any moron that knows how to change a diaper, nevertheless, that’s not true. The last time I changed a diaper was 2 years ago and I refuse to do so again after my cousin decided to pee on my hand. It was like an arrow hitting a target – impressive but painfully accurate. There is hidden intellectualism in this area that plenty doesn’t fully understand. Babysitting can be considered hidden intellectualism because it allows me to adopt intellectual skills such as patience, critical thinking, and time management. By using these skills, I can also practice comparing and contrasting the many ways of dealing with problems a child might cause, and determine the best course of action to resolve a real-life situation in real time.
Looking from a child to an adult I now understand why the adults in the neighborhood watched over everyone. It taught me a that there is strength in numbers and love conquers all. Growing up the fourth girl of five kids wasn’t tough or awkward for me. I am the baby girl, therefore I got away with a lot. I learned early on I was different, but could not comprehend whether it was in a good/bad way as a child.
I was not born into the world to do everything, but I was born into the world with great intentions; intentions to make a difference, to be an outstanding leader, ambassador, and advocate to serve and give back to the society. Ever since I have known myself, I have always wanted to become a nurse. A hardship that has made me stronger is, after my first semester in the pre-nursing
After the sudden loss of my oldest brother in 2011, my life changed in the blink of an eye. While trying to overcome this heartbreaking experience was one of the most challenging things ever faced with, his death soon turned into a true inspiration to me. Not only do I cherish all the memories I was able to share with him over the years, I soon came to realization that tomorrow is not a promise to anyone and to live life to the fullest. With this being said, having the opportunity to have an impact on someone everyday whether through communication, actions and/or attitude to help heal is something very powerful to me. Nursing is a profession that allows individuals to open new doors to learn something new and making the best of everyday for each
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.
With a working single parent, often I’ve taken care of my sister and myself, this responsibility has made me a more considerate and hardworking person and allowed me to know from a young age that I was capable and could achieve the high expectations I set for myself. Over the years, this responsibility has given me confidence in myself and my family, that by working hard and taking care of each other we could make it through the difficult
I am driven and determined to have a career in nursing by becoming a student at NYU College of Nursing. My main source of inspiration to become a nurse comes from a deep desire to help people. Nurses have the ability to see people at their worst, while helping them become their best. This is the most rewarding experience and an experience that I want to obtain. Being a trilingual nursing student, I would love to use the skills I acquired in nursing to help the immigration population of NYC and translate for patients with language
I enjoy being there for my grandmother and cleaning her house or doing some picking up here and there as long as I have her company there while I do the work, I don't mind one bit. It's important to me to have strong family values because I feel it makes me a better person and helps me to never forget where I came from. I remember in middle school I did community service and the feeling you get from knowing that you’re being a small part of helping someone in need is a satisfying feeling. I went to Feed the Children to package boxes with everyday necessities. I also have spent some time at the food bank helping packing food for those in need.
My Intent to Be a Nurse Practitioner Coming from a third world country where there aren’t many opportunities for work and funding for education, proceding to nursing school was a grand opportunity. The privilege to attend a government subsidized school where top students in the region compete to get into the program that allowed only 60 students per year was indeed a blessing. As clinical rotations began, what was once considered a mere opportunity evolved into a true passion for caring as I truly love and enjoy nursing and helping people.
After achieving these important milestones in my life, I plan to set the next goal by getting accepted into my dream college, Georgia Southern University. Georgia Southern University is ranked the number four nursing program in the state of Georgia, which leads to me pursuing my career goals. If I maintain these goals, my determination will allow me to get accepted into and graduate from Georgia Southern University’s nursing program by
I have decided to pursue nursing and apply for the second degree accelerated nursing program; I consider myself a highly motivated individual with a value of strong work ethic. I can certainly distinguish myself as a person with numerous interests, a range of skills and goals. My Goals are to become a highly skilled nurse, work for the united state military and help save lives. Just like my father, I would love to provide a great humanitarian service, not for the pay or the glory or the recognition but to save lives, give hope, provide care, love and touch
I have a heart for service and a strong desire to make a difference in people’s lives. Becoming a nurse I will be able to fulfill my passion of making a positive impact on individual lives on a daily basis. I will be able to fulfill my nurturing and caring desires of helping others. I’m very passionate and fascinated with the medical field in all aspects. I strive for excellence, integrity and love interacting with all diversity of people.
Although I am intrigued by the human body and everything that it can do, I have a passion for providing care. I firmly believe that the desire I have to help is what determined my decision to pursue nursing. When I graduate and obtain my baccalaureate degree, I hope to begin my journey in the Emergency Room or in the Labor and Delivery Unit. I am attracted to the E.R.
