I live in Louisiana; when hurricane Katrina struck I did what I could to help throughout the long ordeal that followed, coming to feel especially grateful that I was a nurse. Seeing so many people in need of medical attention inspired me to spend a lot of time reading about disaster relief efforts in America and abroad. I hope to participate in these efforts after earning the MSN Degree at XXXX University, my first choice for Nursing School because of its sheer excellence.
I bring with me the knowledge of nursing that comes only from extensive experience, which will help me to hit the ground running in your program and go on to distinguish myself as Family Nurse Practitioner. My special passion for the elderly and my dedication to the literature concerning geriatric care will also help me to excel. Finally, I am very engaged with veterans’ issues and thinking about working in a VA Hospital in the future.
I began serving as an RN in the Emergency Department and was soon promoted to charge nurse, a role that I performed with great joy and diligence for almost two decades, from May of 1990 through September of 2009. To this day, I sometimes miss the intensity and diversity of patients in the Emergency Room. For the past 5 years, I have worked at XXXX Neuroscience Center in Houma, continuing to mature, develop, and grow as a nurse as well as a human being, learning to think increasingly holistically and creatively at each step along the way.
I excel at patience, compassion, empathy, and teamwork. If accepted to XXXX, I will give my all, putting my 26 years of nursing experience to work towards the FNP Degree and beyond.
I thank you for considering my application to Nursing School at XXXX.
