Nursing Leadership & Education Master's Degree Personal Statement of Purpose

I am graduating this month, December 2016, with my BSN Degree. I could not be happier with my chosen profession of nursing. I am in a hurry to get to work each day and usually show up early in my position as a School Nurse for XXXX Schools, assessing the health needs of students and staff and administering medications and treatments as ordered. I especially enjoy developing individual healthcare plans for students with special healthcare needs, managing screenings, immunization programs, and physical examinations related to sports activities. I supervise paraprofessionals and maintain detailed and accurate health records, especially concerning immunizations. Earning the MSN Degree at XXXX University will enable me to do my job better and take on greater responsibility in the future as a nursing professional to maximize my contribution to my community by caring for the health of our children.

Since high school, I have been dedicated to becoming a nurse when I began volunteering in a hospital. I continued as a volunteer throughout college, usually working professionally as a CNA. Also, while still in high school, I almost lost my mother to severe bacterial meningitis. While she did recover, it was a terrible ordeal with an extended hospital stay. The nurses took me under their wing throughout this period and made me feel that I was part of the team struggling to save my mother’s life. The sheer intensity of the experience left me hungry for nursing, sparking my desire to show a similar level of compassion as was shown to me when it mattered most. Read More

My goal is to make a positive difference in people’s lives by enjoying a rewarding career that provides me with variety and autonomy. I am convinced that the FNP role will meet my requirements and maximize my ability to make a beneficial difference. My long-term goal is to share my experience, skills, and knowledge with a new generation of nurses in my home country of Cameroon. Read More

I have a proven track record as a highly dedicated nursing professional. My high levels of motivation and achievement are rooted in the many complex challenges I have faced. I began life with parents who constantly relocated across the country, searching for manual labor jobs. My father was a Vietnam War veteran trying to outrun his ghosts with only a high school education and training in welding. My mother, another working-class survivor, obtained her GED while my brother and I were in grade school, working odd jobs, mostly housekeeping. Yet, within time, she received her Bachelor’s Degree while working her way up the ladder: CNA to LPN and RN. My family struggled against heavy odds to be able to prepare their children for solid and stable families and careers. My family background has instilled in me a most profound devotion to education; the constant uprooting from neighborhoods and schools made me strong, an extrovert rather than an introvert, an adaptable person who has always hit the ground running with enormous respect for diversity and multiculturalism. In addition to laying the foundation for a highly successful career in nursing, my background and life experiences spurred me to become the American Taekwondo Association’s Colorado State Champion for 2005 and 2006. This helped me further appreciate the need for eternal humility, tranquility, a positive attitude, lifelong personal growth, acceptance of failure, and victory: courage, perseverance, self-confidence, discipline, and leadership skills that I hope to refine in your program.
