If I could earn a living do what I love I would be a nurse. Personally I have many influential people in my life, who are nurses who have inspired me to be the best nurse I can be. Leaders such as Florence Nightingale, Virginia Henderson and Dorothea Orem have laid the foundation of the art and science of nursing and personally have encouraged me to adopt their theories of nursing, which will impact my work ethic and the care that I will give to my patients. Exceptional care is something that a patient will always remember and will always look back on fondly when they could not care for themselves. My nursing degree will provide me with the knowledge and skills that will evolve into exceptional nursing care, which could be a small step in changing the world.
