____ University is my first choice among DNP programs in Nurse Anesthesia for various reasons, most of all the sheer excellence of your program and distinguished faculty. I also appreciate JHU’s emphasis on practice-based learning and commitment to family-centered care. My ambition and experiential learning will inspire and empower me to become a highly efficient CRNA in research and practice. I look forward to dedicating myself fully to the NA program at JHU, giving my all to my studies with utmost dedication, diligence, and devotion.
After earning my BSN in Mumbai in 2015 with a 3.77 GPA, I moved to the US with my parents, and the States has been my home since. I will always be thankful that I earned my first degree in Nursing in India. This enabled me to think globally about nursing issues and the great need in poor, populous countries such as ours with enormous poverty.
Young, enthusiastic, and tenacious, I am a nursing professional with a passionate desire to contribute to improving the quality of life of my patients, enhancing their overall health, psychological and physical. I am applying to your Doctor of Nurse Anesthesia Practice program because I am highly motivated to excel and give my all to my studies and patients. Originally from India, I am multilingual and proficient in Marathi, Hindi, Malayalam, and English. I hope to further develop my contributions as a volunteer after distinguishing myself in your program, putting my DNP in Nurse Anesthesia to work as much as possible at the service of the underserved, first here in America and perhaps later in India.
I now have four years of rich and diverse experience as an ICU RN with specialties in major metroplex hospitals in Dallas, TX. Cardiovascular ICU is the area in which I seek to specialize, laboring on behalf of congestive heart failure and cardiac surgery patients, supporting advanced therapies like Left Ventricular Assistive Devices or Bridge to Heart and Bridge to Lung Transplants. I look forward to learning all I can about heart and other Hemodynamic stabilizing devices, including Swan-Ganz catheter, Belmont, ECMO, tandem, Bispectral index monitoring, and Train of four machines.
I have also worked as a level-V, float pool, and ICU RN at the XXXX County Hospital. I cared for patients in Medical ICU, Burns ICU, Surgical ICU, and Neurosurgical ICU and managed higher acuity patients. I currently serve as a CLABSI Co-chair for UT Southwestern Medical Center, where I have created a CLABSI task force in CVICU to reduce the CLABSI rate through ongoing auditing and additional staff training in dressing placement and line removal. In my work as an EVLP-RN with the Ex Vivo lung perfusion program - the only EVLP RN-led team in the US - it has been a humbling honor to work alongside physicians as a lung perfusionist RN. My responsibilities include mentoring new nurse externs, new graduate nurses, and even experienced nurses, working as a Unit Charge Nurse, and managing unit activities. In my elective courses in Chemistry and Statistics, I earned a 4.0 GPA. I am also certified in Pulmonary ARDS/COVID-19, ACLS, BLS, PALS, CCRN, CMC, and CSC. Thank you for considering my application.
