Nursing Personal Goals and Values
There are many professions in this world. As a child we always say we want to be doctors, firefighters, or even ballerinas. As a child I wanted to be a rock singer and then a writer and even at one point an art major. Like everyone else in this world we change what we want to do with our lives all the time. Many people still do not know what they want to do until their sophomore year in college or even later than that.

This will help me reach my personal goal because of being able to adapt to new environments I am forced to take responsibility and take the pressure and make smart choices, for a person’s lives are in my hands.

One of the first goals is to make a difference in people’s lives. I want to be able to help people and to make them feel comfortable and safe. Being able to have that interaction with patients is important to me for many reasons. One reason is because I just do not want to make an impact on them but I want to be able to tell how much I enjoy my patients to my coworkers and my families. Another personal goal I have is stay devoted to learning. I want to still get an education in some way after graduation and nursing can help me achieve this. As a nurse I will be faced with new experiences every day and will have to learn to cope with new situation. I want to be able to learn as much as I can in a profession and I feel like nursing is a great way to help with this. Another goal I have is to build more on my work ethic. I have been working since the age of fourteen and loved it. All my coworkers would always tell me that I am such a good worker and that my communication skills are great. As a nurse I want to strengthen my work ethic. Nurses have to work long and hard hours and being faced with new situations I feel will help me accomplish a stronger work ethic. The last personal goal I have is to enjoy my job and be able to say to people that I love it and that I would never change my
