Out of all the fulfilling career options available, the one I would enjoy doing the most would be being a nurse. Perhaps the reason for this is my grandmother’s influence on me; she has been in the nursing field her whole life, and is currently a director of nursing. Besides her, I chose this particular profession because of the intimate relationship you cultivate with all the patients you service. As a nurse you’re able to see the immediate and prolonged effects of the care you administer to your patients, and, in consequence, the joy that accompanies this sight. Not to mention that being an RN is a stable—albeit competitive—field that offers plenty of opportunities for advancement.
I’m currently enrolled at UCF for the 2014 fall semester as a nurse pending student. My intentions are to receive a bachelor’s of nursing first, and then to come back to earn a second degree as a nurse practitioner.
It is my personal belief that nurses and healthcare professionals in general help to make the world seem less grieving and desolate place by assisting people in their most crucial times of need. If I win one of these scholarships, I would be one step closer to being able to achieve this belief.
