Your distinguished FNP post-MSN Certificate Program at XXXX State University is my first choice for further graduate study. I have an M.S Degree, and I work as a licensed nurse. My children are now grown up, and I am again free to practice the rigors of working and studying simultaneously. I keenly look forward to being able to give my all to my studies for the first time in my life. My passion now is to excel at XXXX State University. Over my many years of professional service, I have become adept at cultivating and maintaining a good rapport with patients of varying backgrounds, almost all of which presented me with one type of challenge or another. Subsequently, I have become an excellent problem solver.
I see nursing as an art and a science encompassing the body, mind, and spirit. Hence, my most memorable nursing moments have been when I discovered positive changes in my home care patients' physical and emotional health, especially my geriatric patients.
The professional challenges I have met include the oversight of the Visiting Nurse Association and its 1000 employees. I also designed and developed my own successful Assisted Living Facility. My central professional goal is to become an FNP by completing your Post MSN Certificate Program with a primary focus on geriatrics and dementia. I have developed a particular affinity for rural nursing and home care and look forward to doing ongoing research in these areas.
