Choosing the career of my future was one of the toughest decisions I had to make. During school life, when many of my peers were already pursuing their goals and dreams, I was dedicated to missing as many classes as possible. This did not change until I graduated from high school and decided to work instead of continuing with my education in college. I searched for any job which could pay for my car and allowance. With no clear goal in a career for my future at age 21, I finally started to panic.
I have always dreamed of a career which I would truly enjoy for the rest of my life and when I heard about a career in nursing from my stepmother, it grabbed my attention. I started to view nursing as a profession which would be a personally rewarding job in many aspects and also set me up for a successful career for my future. The most appealing part to me was that nursing is a respected profession which dedicates them Who? to help the sick and ill. I have envisioned myself in a rewarding career in service of people who are in need and now that I have found it I am willing to dedicate myself to it fully. My dedication comes not only from myself, but from my parents who have always been supportive of my decisions and who I do not want to let down.
Becoming a nurse is the first goal I have ever set in my life and it was not decided on lightly. I am ready to fully devote my time and freedom to achieve this goal not just for myself but also to thank those who have been supportive and believe that I will take my life and do something with it."
