Since childhood, I have intended to spend my life ‘making a difference rather than just making a living. I pursued a bachelor's degree in Biology to qualify as a physician; however, as I became aware that nurses have much more direct patient contact, I decided to pursue a career in that field. Since I began my nursing career, I have experienced the great satisfaction of making a beneficial difference in my patient's lives and have been fully confirmed in my choice and wish to advance as far as possible within the field.
I have been a professional registered nurse since February 2015. I initially served on a Medical/Surgical/Orthopedic floor. I applied to work in the ICU early this year and regard the success of my application as a reflection of my superiors' confidence and recognition of my intelligence, enthusiasm, skills, and potential. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in ICU, which has enhanced my nursing skills and knowledge.
I have now carefully considered my ‘next step’ in nursing. I have concluded that the CRNA role is an ideal ‘fit.’ The specialty draws me academically and professionally because of the exciting and constant advances being made ins, equipment, and techniques. I am confident that I possess the necessary intellectual capability, high-level communication skills, an analytical approach to problems, and the ability to work with significant autonomy while being an influential member of a cross-disciplinary team. However, I am mainly attracted by the prospect of providing the vital patient service of effective and safe pain management.
My professional goals are to qualify as a Nurse Anesthetist and go ont to gain considerable experience serving in a hospital. I look forward to being involved in research. I am particularly interested in the genetics of heritable variability in severe pain traits, including inflammatory and neuropathic hypersensitivity and the role of GABAa receptors in anesthetic action. My degree in Biology will, I am confident, will help me to be a creative thinker as a nurse and good at problem-solving.
I am aware that the program will be intellectually demanding, and I am confident that I am equipped to excel within it rather than merely succeed. I earned a GPA of 3.78/4 in my nursing degree.
I have been raised as a Christian and consider volunteer activity an obligation rather than an option. I have been involved in several volunteer programs, such as the Ronald Macdonald House Charity, which provides practical help to families whose children are seriously ill, and the Angel Food Ministries, which provides food relief to families in needy families continued to give my time and expertise throughout my life.
I have studied, worked, and socialized with people from many ethnic and social backgrounds. I get on quickly with others and have a well-developed sense of humor. I am a native English speaker but have a basic proficiency in Spanish, which I hope to enhance when time permits. I am increasingly aware of the importance of non-verbal signals in providing nursing care, recognizing, interpreting, and responding appropriately to such calls from patients and their families.
I am aware that nursing can be emotionally demanding and strongly believe in the importance of pursuing outside hobbies and interests to maintain balance and a rounded personality. I am a proficient photographer; I always have at least one book ‘on the go,’ I enjoy exploring my home city and discovering its role in making our country; I love music and am a dedicated ‘movie buff.’
To summarize, I believe I have the intellectual capacity, personal characteristics, and passion for the specialty which will enable me to excel.
Thank you for considering my application.
