I am incredibly excited about focusing on nursing education and learning as much as possible about management as a DNAP student of Nursing Practice at XXXX University. I feel strongly that my professional experience so far will enable and inspire me to excel in your program since I have served as Assistant Director of Didactic Education for the CMC/Nurse Anesthesia Program at the University of XXXX for almost two years; in addition to serving as a CRNA for an entire decade before beginning my current position.
XXU is my first choice among doctoral programs since I want to study online and continue in my present position working full time while I earn my doctoral degree. In particular, I have my heart set on XXU because of your well-established online presence and your emphasis on and proven track record in Nurse Anesthesia Practice (DNAP). I see your program as incredibly well-developed, creative, and progressive. Your path to the DNAP is the ideal option that will most inspire me to grow as a leader in nurse anesthesia education.
The most significant clinical contribution is always one patient at a time, with particular attention paid to the family. I see compassion as an integral and indispensable part of pain management, and I prize diligence, attentiveness, and the sense of moral purpose that I hope to bring to Nurse Anesthesia. I can imagine nothing more satisfying than the education of new generations of nurse anesthetists, preparing the finest professional caregivers. I tell my patients, “trust me; I will get you there.” I want to say this to my students as well in the future.
As a CRNA, my sense of civic calling led me to serve in various areas as a volunteer throughout my nursing career. My most salient experience was my work with the Sisters of Mercy at their shelter for victims of domestic violence at XXXX’s House in Belmont, NC. I look forward to a professional lifetime of particular concern, engagement, and service in this area.
I thank you for considering my application to XXXX University.
