I am a young woman from Florida who was raised in Ft. Lauderdale. I have been working extremely hard for many years now preparing myself for an MSN program that will prepare me to become a Family Nurse Practitioner. I now live in Clearwater and the University of ____ is a convenient location for me. I respect the research directions of the faculty in domestic violence and transcultural health assessments since my special concern is with the fact that many women, especially minority women, and members of the LGBTQ movement, represent a vulnerable medical population that is in dire need of education and protection. I hope to become a highly dedicated FNP that excels at advocacy as well as care.
My two undergraduate degrees, a B.A. in the Social Sciences as well as an associate degree in nursing science have provided me with a well-rounded intellectual foundation that stimulates my curiosity and makes it natural for me to want to learn more. At 29, it is time to go to graduate school, the optimal point in my life, when I have both the maturity and the energy for a full-time learning experience. My outgoing, compassionate, and gregarious character is well suited for a nursing professional, the kind of person that can easily establish a rapport and trust with patients of all ages, cultures, and socio-economic backgrounds, as well as with peers, physicians, and support personnel.
My professional goal is to become a family nurse practitioner and I look forward to developing a long-term emphasis on women's health. I am especially interested in this area because, as a woman, I understand the confusion and vulnerability that women often feel when going for their routine OB/GYN visits. I am bothered by the way that many women are often seen by MDs who rush through the exams and fail to take the necessary time to adequately explain what is happening to the client in layperson's terminology, often without sufficient compassion, without adequately responding to questions and taking an interest in the client.
I am especially attracted to the idea of working in family planning/safe sexual practices especially with teenage girls since they are an especially vulnerable population in need of support, compassion, and education. I very much look forward to a fulfilling professional life as a family nurse practitioner in private practice or working for Planned Parenthood. I am passionate about helping others, and I believe that a career in nursing will allow me to do just that. My aim is to become a Family Nurse Practitioner and use my knowledge and skills to benefit families and individuals in need, providing them with the best care possible.
I have the necessary skills and experience to become a successful Family Nurse Practitioner, and I am especially attracted to the idea of working in family planning/safe sexual practices especially with teenage girls since they are an especially vulnerable population in need of support, compassion, and education. I am confident that I can provide these services with the highest level of care and professionalism.
