MS APNP Adult Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

Updated: Oct 17, 2020


APNP Goal Statement Sample

  1. Why are you interested in this program?

As a nurse I have witnessed the enormously beneficial effects of the intervention of APNP’s in the lives of patients suffering both acute and chronic symptoms of mental ill-health. I seek to emulate their effectiveness.


In my work as a nurse in a correctional institution and in the military environment in which I live as a military spouse, I have had an unusual amount of exposure to mental ill-health and its distressing effects. My experiences, coupled with a short but painful personal episode of post-natal depression has crystallized in me a desire to acquire the knowledge and skills to become an APNP.

  1. What are your career goals upon obtaining your degree?

My goal is to assist in improving mental health in an active military setting where there is a pressing need for specialist military psychiatric nurses in view of the particular stresses suffered by soldiers and veterans together with their spouses and families.

  1. Additional Information.

I am an experienced RN and a significant amount of that experience has involved patients suffering mental ill-health. I want to be in a position to help them as much as possible and seek the training and knowledge to do so. I strongly believe that I possess the characteristics that would enable me to be a first class APNP.

While I would enjoy talking to my clients on the telephone, I need your information in text form . Since I am always working with several different clients at the same time, if I took the information over the phone, I might tend to confuse your stories.
