I ask for admission to your DNP Program at XXXX University because it brings me great delight to provide culturally sensitive care to my patients. This is especially true with Asian and, most notably, Chinese patients since I am a bilingual Chinese speaker of Cantonese and Mandarin.
Currently working with various community health organizations dedicated to underserved and special needs populations, I am also attending classes in Spanish and making rapid progress. I see Spanish as a lifelong endeavor in which I am also most determined due to the critical importance of this language for working with the underserved.
My long-term objective is to distinguish myself as a highly effective leader in the healthcare facility where I work in administration and as a specialist in clinical care nursing and publish in this area. Nothing will bring me greater joy than employing consultative, collaborative, and leadership skills to make our intra-professional and inter-professional teams as creative and effective as possible; in a constant search for a way to foster and enhance effective communication and patient outcomes through the implementation of new, innovative initiatives that improve our health care delivery systems.
I am applying to your distinguished DNP Program at XXXX University because I seek a lifetime of service to promote safe, timely, effective, efficient, and equitable patient-centered care. Dedicated to lifelong learning, I look forward to many decades to come sharing in discovering innovative approaches to care delivery. I hope to have a share in or influence healthcare policymaking. I see myself primarily as an advocate for my patients, for equity, social justice, and ethical policies. I seek to direct my career to the service of underserved communities as this is where my greatest passion lies and where I find the greatest joy.
Better utilization of nurse practitioners will improve access to higher quality healthcare while America’s crippling healthcare costs can be reduced. We live in exciting times for health care in America, and I feel fortunate to be part of the advancements taking place in nursing in such exciting times.
Finishing my BS in Biology within two years at XXXX State University with a GPA of 3.9 propelled me to earn my MSN, where I had the privilege of serving as a research assistant. I look forward in the future to working with leaders and professional organizations to remove barriers to NP practice as part of legislation that benefits our entire healthcare system. My highest or most noble dream is to inspire future nursing professionals by publishing articles in professional journals in Chinese and English, inspiring new generations of American and Chinese nurses.
I thank you for considering my application to your program.
