My decision to go back to school to further my education in nursing has always been a desire that had not subsided. After 25 years, the decision was made easier when I lost my job in March, 2014. I was unemployed with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Health Care Management. My passion has always been to help others, and this is my purpose. In order to be able to make an impact in my profession as a nurse, having to exemplify the motivation and the eagerness to want this has shown. I have a GPA of 3.75 currently and once I obtain my License as a nurse, I want to continue to pursue my career and establish my own non-profit organization to help others dreams come true. The health care profession will gain a nurse eager to impact her community in the St. Louis area as well as assisting with many other outreach programs that also need support. I have learned that even when you are in the valley or at your lowest, it only matters how you go through the valley while accomplishing something you have been so passionate about. I am only passing through the valley and stopping by St. Louis College Of Health Careers to obtain substantial knowledge that will benefit me on my journey. I feel truly blessed to know that my success will determine the well – being of others through my skills and expertise that I will obtain St. Louis College of Health Careers.
