Through my college studies and experiences in an assisted living facility, I discovered my passion to be nursing. As part of a certified nursing assistant course, I was required to participate in the application of the learned skills at an assisted nursing facility. Admittedly, I was scared on my first day and I didn’t think that I would succeed through the program; working directly on real patients frightened me. Further, I thought that the class was not going to have any kind of impact on my future education in nursing and my eventual career. Taking that course completely changed the way I felt about nursing. I wasn’t sure if I was going to even like working in the nursing field and I found that I loved it. I assisted the resident nurse in her daily tasks and providing this assistance, despite the fact that it was through a school course, gave me inspiration and encouragement to know that my involvement made an impact in someone’s life, even if small.
I am currently enrolled in the Registered Nursing Program with Arizona Western College. I have further plans to pursue a bachelor’s degree in nursing once I complete the RN program at AWC. My ultimate life-goal is to acquire a position as a Pediatric Oncology Nurse Practitioner. My desire landed in this field as a result of my personal experiences with having family members suffer from cancer. Such experiences, paired with my love for children gave me the desire to make a difference in a child’s life.
To make the world a better place would require a much broader application of my skills. I strive to have a positive and life-changing effect on one vital area, pediatric oncology. I anticipate such efforts to trickle into the world, slowly affecting not only the field of nursing but hopefully the outlook of children and their parents facing medical crisis.
