____ University is my dream school and my first choice for graduate study in nursing. I have friends and acquaintances that have graduated from your program and listening to their rave reviews has inspired me. ____ attracts many international students like me; thus, I am attracted to the great diversity. I want very much to develop special expertise in acute care advanced practice nursing, and I am looking forward to becoming part of your community as a student in your state-of-the-art preparation to become a nurse practitioner.
Caring for people is an expression of my spirituality. The ER nurse practitioner is for me a hero and I aspire to become one. Earning the MSN Degree at ____ will be the most critical personal and professional achievement of my life thus far. For me, the personal, professional, and even political are all intertwined; and working as a nursing professional at this advanced level will represent the fullest fruition of my identity, that which I most prize. I ask for your assistance in preparing me as a springboard to devote the rest of my life to improving nursing care through research, and critical, highly creative thinking about the fundamental assumptions and current theory driving ongoing research in nursing.
I am convinced that ____ has one of the most creative and comprehensive programs in both theoretical and practical aspects of nursing and I look forward very much to implementing what I learn in your program through the opportunities that exist for advanced clinical practice. I have a special passion for ER Nursing. I am a young woman who is an adventurer and thrives on the adrenaline rush of pressure and profound challenge. I have known for a long time that this is what I want to do most on a professional level, and the consistency of my vision has provided me with the courage to make my dream a reality. A native speaker of Mandarin and Taiwanese, I am also fluent in Japanese and look forward to capitalizing on my linguistic abilities as part of my contribution to nursing.
I hope to take advantage of my advanced multicultural and multilingual perspectives to distinguish myself in cross-cultural case studies. While I do not anticipate ever wanting to completely surrender my hands-on practice as a nurse practitioner, research is also close to my heart. I have been working for the ____ Medical Center in the ER for one year and I hope to use my multilingual abilities at the service of highly ethnically diverse patient populations. The greatest contribution that I might be able to make to society would be to give my all to the improvement of what I see as a central pillar of public health: ER.
I want to learn how to constantly improve the level of care that I can provide to my patients, and I want to be able to contribute more fully to nursing research. In addition to my native Taiwan, I have also spent extensive time in Japan, and this contributes to my multi-cultural sensitivity, especially with respect to the Asian big heart.
I want to thank you for your consideration of my application to your program.
