A hard working woman who was born and raised in India, I have now been living in the United States for the past ten years. I moved to the U.S. in 2002 after marrying a U.S. citizen and have been living with my in-laws since that time. I am now the mother of two beautiful boys, one is five and just started kindergarten and the other is beginning to crawl around. Nevertheless, we are a big, loving, Indian family and we highly respect higher education. So my entire family supports my decision to go back to school and pursue acceptance to the Master´s Entry Clinical Nurse Program at XXXX.
I feel qualified for your program because I hold a B.S. Degree in Biological Sciences—zoology, botany, chemistry—and I have earned some course credits here in the US earning certification as a Clinical Medical Assistant. I chose Nursing as my career because of my science background and I also realize that caring for the ill is the career track that I personally find most fulfilling, perhaps because of my compassionate nature. I began working towards my goal six years ago, and achieved my first step by completing the pre-requisite classes. From the beginning, I was fascinated by the pursuit of a career in Nursing, especially since I had the privilege of working in at the Rajindra Hospital in my home town of Patiala, where I worked in the Pediatric Department. Due to the polluted water in that particular area, underprivileged children from ages 2 to 7 often got very sick and some died. Water born diseases like typhoid, cholera, stomach flu and vomiting are very common where I grew up. And I worked closely with the pediatricians during all phases or stages of treatment.
Now I feel very confident that this is the right time for me to attain higher education and prepare myself for future advancements and challenges. I would like to thank you for considering my application and hopefully next year will bring new hopes and open doors to a brighter future for us by my being accepted into your program. I want very much to take my studies to the next level and pursue a graduate degree in Nursing. The Master Entry Clinical Nurse Program at XXXX is an excellent platform upon which I could build a new professional life and a better future for myself and my family. I very much appreciate the increased job opportunities that come with a graduate education and I am especially proud to be part of a profession that is in such great demand in today’s world. If accepted into your program, I will bring my heart, mind, and soul, and will distinguish myself as an especially dedicated student.
