Why I Want toBecome a Registered Nurse
Ever since I was a child, I have always been emphatic towards otherpeople going through difficult situations. In the beginning, I hadseveral career aspirations. Hence, I was very confused on what Iwanted to do with my life. However, during my 10th-yearbirthday celebration, one of my friends collapsed. I come to learnlater that he had epilepsy. While everybody was confused, Iremembered that I had attended a first aid seminar where we weretaught on how to respond to some minor problems as we wait for adoctor to arrive. Unknowingly, I started commanding every person whowas in the room to get out. I organized two of my friends to help metake John outside for fresh air. What shocked me is that after twominutes of inhaling fresh air, John regained his consciousness and bythe time the medical team arrived his condition was stable. This isthe incident that ignited my passion for a career in the healthcaresector after I realized how it feels to help people, particularlywhen it is a matter of life and death.
Besides, I hail from a family of nurses. About five members of myextended families are nurses. Hence, from time to time, I would seepeople coming to one of my uncles, aunts or cousins with differenthealthcare concerns. Hence, to me, being a registered nurse will bemore than a job. It will be a continuous learning process and anadventure that I will embark on every day as I seek to fulfill mymission in life. I view nursing as a profession that allows a personto provide care, support and comfort to strangers as if they aremembers of his/her family. As a registered nurse, I will not onlyhave the opportunity to meet my patient’s physical concerns, butalso their social, emotional, and spiritual needs.
Additionally, I believe that being a registered nurse provide aperson with limitless opportunities to impact other people’s lives.For example, one can become a forensic nurse and help other medicalpractitioners to unearth causes of mysterious deaths. Apart frombeing a forensic nurse, one can become a nurse anesthetist or acritical care nurse, among other careers within the field of nursing.
If there is something that I loathe is status quo. I enjoy beingflexible for me to acquire new knowledge, skills, and competencies. Additionally, I know that being a nurse is a challenging profession.Consequently, a registered a nurse is not only expected to beflexible but also to possess crucial decision-making skills. I feelthat these qualities perfectly describe me since I thrive and findenjoyment when working under pressure.
To prepare for a career as a registered nurse, I had to ensure that Iperform well in my exams, particularly biology and chemistry. Biology has always been my favorite subject since I joined highschool. One of the reasons I find biology classes very interesting isthat the subject is highly applicable.
Additionally, I am good in sports such as football and baseball. Iknow that work without play makes Jack a dull boy. Hence, I believe Iam a holistic student who will not only learn from others, but impactmy college mates as well.
