When I was a teenager, I wanted to become a Registered Nurse. I am currently a Certified Medical Assistant. I have only had the opportunity to work in intern medicine. For the past ten years, I have worked in doctors’ offices and clinics in the Baltimore area. I am extremely motivated to become a RN because I had told my parents that I would work in a hospital as a nurse someday.

Her death has inspired me to become a RN because of what I went through while she was hospitalized. My mom was in the hospital for ten days, ten hours and thirty six minutes; I was there the whole time. During my time in the hospital, the staff made the process of her death just a little more bearable. I want to be that nurse, so that one day I can return the favor to someone who is in the same position that I was in when my mom was dying. Nursing would be a good profession for me because I have many of the personality traits and skills that lend themselves to the nursing field.

I was a little exhausted after performing the first sterile procedure.

Therefore, I view any feedback that I get as constructive and will use it to advance my understanding and abilities. In the future, I can utilize this strategy along with my skills in order to improve my career as a professional

    The first time I really felt that I wanted to be a doctor was the day my sister had her first son. All day I stayed by her side and tended to her needs. My role in the delivery room went from being just a younger sister trying to make her comfortable to a very hands-on coach during the delivery, helping her push effectively. I was elated, exhausted, and extremely excited to help in a small way bring a life into the world.

    I believe that nursing is a lifestyle shaped by my desire to make a change in people’ lives and to provide comfort, support, and better health outcomes to those in need.

The nurses were the ones caring about my feelings, completing my physical examination, taking my vital signs, interviewing me to figure out the root of my problem, and notify the providers.…

I knew I wanted to pursue a career in healthcare because of my mother, who was a registered nurse.

I owe my foremost interest in pursuing a career in pharmacy to my paternal grandparents.…
