Nursing School Personal Statement Example
1 As my friends and family will tell you, I’ve been a nurse for years.
As my friends and family will tell you, I’ve been a nurse for years. In fact, some of them even call me “nurse” instead of by my given name.
I enjoy helping people and making sure they’re healthy. It’s the best feeling in the world when someone tells me that they feel better after having spent time with me.
2 When I was seven years old, my father died of kidney failure.
When I was seven years old, my father died of kidney failure. It was an event that deeply affected me and shaped the person I am today.
At first, I didn’t understand what had happened to him or why he was no longer around to play with me anymore. My mother tried her best to explain it all but sometimes there are things that cannot be explained in words. As time went on though, I learned more about what happened and began to understand it better than anyone else could have explained it for me at the time. It made me realize how precious life can be because one day you may not have another chance at it again…and if you do then there’s nothing left for you except joyfulness! This realization has taught me how valuable each moment really is – whether we’re enjoying ourselves or not – because there’s always something better waiting ahead just around the corner (or maybe even further down). And although this could lead us down paths where bad things happen too often such as death itself (like losing someone close), these experiences make us stronger people who continue living out their dreams regardless of any obstacles standing in their way…and ultimately become even better than before through overcoming adversity together as a whole community.”
3 To date, I have no idea how I kept it together.
“To date, I have no idea how I kept it together.”
This is a quote from my mother, who was speaking about the loss of her husband when I was just ten years old. Having lost my father to cancer at such a young age, I’m sure that this statement would be true for many others in similar situations to what we were going through at the time. However, as far as my experience goes specifically and personally growing up with one parent and several younger siblings as well as being an aspiring nurse practitioner/doctorate student; I can honestly say that there were many times throughout my life where many would have given up or fallen off course along their journey towards achieving whatever goals they set out for themselves but because of some unknown strength within myself and most importantly those around me such as my family members themselves who helped me along through their own struggles during those same years; we all made it through every single day together.”
4 Throughout my childhood and teen years, I was committed to taking care of my siblings and working on the family farm.
Throughout my childhood and teen years, I was committed to taking care of my siblings and working on the family farm. My parents had a dairy farm, which required quite a bit of work. In addition to milking the cows each morning and evening, they also planted crops in the springtime and harvest them in the fall. During growing seasons, we would wake up at 5 AM every day to get started with our chores before heading off to school. After school concluded at 3 PM or 4 PM depending on what time of year it was (winter versus summer), we would return home for dinner then continue working until supper time at 9 PM or 10 PM again depending on what time of year it was (winter versus summer).
In addition to helping our parents out with their daily duties around their dairy farm during my childhood/teenage years, I also took care of myself and other members within my community by volunteering at various events such as church camps throughout each summer break from high school.
5 However, following high school graduation, I set out to pursue nursing as a career.
You have worked hard to get into nursing school, but now you must write a personal statement that will convince the admissions committee that you are the right person for this program. The following essay should help you by showing how writing an essay can be made simple and easy.
The following is an example of a nursing personal statement:
However, following high school graduation, I set out to pursue nursing as a career. I attended college and obtained my Certified Nursing Assistant’s license in order to acquire valuable experience in this field before returning to school for additional training at an accredited nursing program. Upon completing my associate degree with honors (3.8 GPA), I applied and was accepted into [Name Of College]’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing program with plans to complete my degree within two years working full time while taking 12 credits each semester.
6 Hey weren’t going to pay themselves off.
In order to pay for nursing school, you have a couple of options. You can get a job, get a scholarship, or get some kind of loan.
If you have no other way to pay for nursing school except by getting a job and earning money, then that’s what you need to do. You should try as hard as possible not to take out any loans at all during your education unless absolutely necessary (like if your family can’t afford it). Unfortunately that may mean taking part-time jobs while in school or working full time during summers and breaks when it’s not too busy at work and they still need employees around campus who are able to fill the slots vacated by students who are gone during those times.
If there is any way possible that someone else could help you with tuition costs without having them write off their portion later (like through scholarships), then try applying for those first! If none seem promising enough though then don’t worry about it too much because there are still options available such as grants/scholarships from schools themselves and even government aid programs like Pell Grants which will give free money towards paying off educational debts once earned back after graduation day arrives.”
7 All-in-all, it took me about four years to complete my degree but those were four highly productive years.
All-in-all, it took me about four years to complete my degree but those were four highly productive years. I learned a lot about nursing, myself and life in general.
I gained an understanding of the different types of patients and how each one needs to be treated differently. I also learned how to work as a team member with other nurses; this is incredibly important when dealing with an unusual patient or situation.
8 Nursing gave me an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others each day.
As a nurse, I have the chance to make a difference in the lives of others each day. Nurses care for patients who are in critical condition, helping them recover from surgery or illness. They can also help patients cope with life-threatening illnesses and chronic diseases such as diabetes or heart disease. As a nurse, you may be called upon at any time of day or night to assist doctors when they are treating an emergency patient.
As a nursing student, I found that being able to see actual patients was one of my favorite parts about this field. It gave me an opportunity to see what it would be like to work as a professional nurse where I could interact with people on a daily basis and potentially help them during times of need – something that truly inspired me!
9 At any given moment my patients could die or their conditions could become critical necessitating immediate life-saving action on my part.
As a nurse in the ICU, you are expected to be able to take charge of the situation at any given moment. Your patients could die or their conditions could become critical necessitating immediate life-saving action on your part. There will be no second chances for mistakes: in fact, there may not even be time for another thought process! It is a high pressure job with responsibility and accountability that you must learn how to face head-on every single day.
10 Yet despite these pressures, every day at work brought with it new opportunities to learn and grow as a nurse.
Nursing is a profession that demands lifelong learning. Nurses must be willing to face difficult situations, learn from them and work through them in order to become successful nurses. I have always been an eager student of the medical field, even before I entered nursing school. When I was younger, my father took me along with him on his rounds at the hospital where he worked as a physician’s assistant. We spent many hours together observing surgeries, learning about new treatments and hearing success stories from patients who had undergone procedures at that hospital or elsewhere in town. This early exposure not only helped prepare me for my future career but also instilled an excitement for changing people’s lives through medicine!
In addition to these invaluable lessons from my father, there have been many other important teachers throughout my years as an RPN student and nurse-in-training: family members who taught me how deeply meaningful it can be to spend time with someone who needs help; friends who showed me how much courage we need when caring for others who are dependent upon us; colleagues who shared their knowledge so willingly because they understand just how valuable such information can be when working with patients every day…
11 When one patient recovered from his surgery after being told he would never walk again, I knew that pursuing nursing had been the right choice for me.
When one patient recovered from his surgery after being told he would never walk again, I knew that pursuing nursing had been the right choice for me.
Mr. Brown, a former construction worker who had been injured in an accident on the job, was suffering from serious nerve damage in his legs and feet at the time of our first meeting. He had been told by other doctors that any attempt at rehabilitation would likely be futile and that he should instead focus on physical therapy to keep himself mobile enough to get around an assisted living facility or nursing home as best he could. I distinctly remember him telling me how grateful he was when I explained to him what my philosophy on recovery was: anything is possible with hard work and determination! After a year of careful rehabilitation under my supervision (and some additional help from a specialized therapist), Mr Mr Brown was out of his wheelchair and walking without assistance again—all while maintaining his sense of humor as well!
12 My determination to succeed in nursing stems from my own personal experience with medical crises within my family.
My determination to succeed in nursing stems from my own personal experience with medical crises within my family. As a child, I watched as my father battled cancer and heart disease, but despite his illness he never complained or showed weakness. Rather, he pushed through each day with optimism and inspiration for all of us around him. When I was old enough to understand the severity of his situation, I made it my mission to help him recover so that we could return home together again – this time as healthy father and daughter.
As a young adult living far away from home in another city for school, I felt helpless when learning about the severity of my parents’ illnesses – but then I found nursing school! Nursing gave me an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others each day; every shift brought new opportunities to learn something new or grow as a nurse further: how much better could you feel knowing that you’ve helped someone live longer than they would have without your care?
13 A good example of what a personal statement should look like
As you begin writing your personal statement, remember that it is about you, not about the school. A good way to start is by asking yourself what sets you apart from other applicants and what your experiences have taught you. Have there been any events or circumstances in your life that have shaped who you are? What do these experiences tell us about what kind of nurse (or future nurse) we might expect from you?
The next step is to determine if there are any traits or qualities that are particularly important for nurses to possess in order to be successful in their profession. For example:
- The ability to maintain professionalism under stressful conditions
- The ability to work as part of a team while still maintaining independence and autonomy
Nursing is a challenging but rewarding field.
