My Academic And Career Goals In The Medical Field

Good Essays
1) My academic and career goals are set around the medical field. I want to finish my nursing degree and hopefully work for a great hospital/clinic that will give me the opportunity to grow and advance with them. I came about this career goal because of my own conditions. A few years ago I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and it woke me up. I have an eleven years old daughter and being diagnosed made me think twice about what I should be doing with my life and how i should spend my days. I had great medical staff giving me advice and helping me cope with it. And with that I had a daughter who encouraged me to be better and to do better, so I decided I wanted to be a person who helps people every single day and my passion for the medical …show more content…
I currently have a part time job and also a work study at school. With raising a kid as well as going to school it doesn’t really leave anytime for me to work many hours. My bills are higher than what I make. I have been getting help from my family when I am short on the month and they have been great to me. Getting this scholarship would cut down on my educational bills and give me the chance to pursue my goals and dreams of becoming a nurse. Having to pay for my own classes has had a negative impact on my educational gals because it has limited the amount of classes I can take per semester, and I really would love to go to school full time and finish my degree earlier instead of take one or two classes per …show more content…
I started to get a group of people who can come together once a week to study and get helped in the tutoring center. As a student worker, I have many new friend that I meet each day and learn how to connect with students and enjoy our time together. I remember my dad used to help out the community with my sibling one a month to clean up the neighborhood with other few people that lives nearby my parents’ house. One day, my dad was at work and they came to ask if he could help. He wasn’t home so I tried to help out. It felt good to clean up the environment and so I decided to keep helping them every month. So many people that live there thank me every time I clean up their area, It felt good to help the older that cannot help themselves. It also looks good and feel good when the environment we live in is clean and in good condition. I love to help and get along with people. Team work makes a dream

    Both have helped me better understand the environment and the day-to-day activities that are required of a nurse. As I spent time watching great nurses work with my mom during and following her bypass surgery at Saint Luke’s Hospital, I was able to learn by observing and see how both compassion and competence plays such an important role in the care of patients. Even before my mom’s surgery, I had already decided to pursue nursing, but this time, witnessing care first hand for someone I love, helped cement my belief that nursing was the right career choice for me.

    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. I see my patients as the main reason why I decided to become a nurse. After I moved to the United States, my parents used to take me to the emergency room at least every other month because of my asthma. That time was an eye-opener to what I wanted to do with my life. 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.…
