Sample 1st Paragraph, Russian Immigrant Nurse
The XXXX School of Nurse Anesthesia is my first choice among Nurse Anesthesia programs for several reasons, which I will outline in what follows. I immigrated to America shortly after finishing high school in my native Russia. First, I had to master English. Now, I dream in English and could not feel more comfortable using the language professionally. Most importantly, I have become a nurse and I feel strongly that I have now arrived at the right time to excel in graduate school, at 33 years old with 5 years of experience in the operating room.
Sample 1st Paragraph, DNP Nurse Anesthesia, Haitian applicant in New York City
A Haitian woman and a very dedicated and hardworking nurse, I am proud to be a native speaker and writer of Haitian Creole as well as English. Despite the fact that I was born and raised on Long Island, I am fully bicultural as well as bilingual. In some fundamental sense, Haiti is even more my home than New York City, and while I have not spent long periods of time their yet, I very much look forward to a professional lifetime of participation in medical missions to my land of origin for decades to come, where my language ability will have great value for coordinating efforts in public health. I am applying to study towards the DNP Degree in Nurse Anesthesia at XXXX College so as to have the opportunity to most fully realize my dreams as a nurse, for Haiti as well as for New York City.
