A principle I was taught growing up was the golden rule, treating others the way you would like to be treated. I’ve seen the benefits of applying that in my dealings with others. I found that I have better friendships, less stress, and being viewed as a trustworthy person. A career in the nursing field would allow me to naturally utilize that principle and help others. I love having a job where I can make a positive difference in someone’s life. I currently work at a psychiatric hospital as a counselor and developed that appreciation. Unfortunately people experience traumatic accidents and face difficult situations, but as human beings we have the ability to be resilient. I think as a nurse you can instill that in the minds of your patients. I think if you have compassionate and caring nurses that can help society in a positive way.

My goals in the nursing field is to stay humble and take as much information as possible. I realize that nursing school is a challenge, but it’s something I’m willing to sacrifice. I am very motivated to start this process because it opens many doors of success. I’ve developed the necessary qualities to be successful as a nurse but I want to continue to grow. One of my favorite expressions I share frequently with my patients is “Rome was not built in a day.” Rome was known as a powerful empire in human history but it took time to get there. In summary, if I could earn a living doing what I love most, it would be a career as a Registered Nurse.
