After extensive research concerning opportunities for graduate study in the USA, I have decided that my first choice is the PHD Program in Healthcare Leadership at the University of California, XXXX. Your program is ideal for my interests which center on becoming a professional researcher in the area of Nursing Administration.
I earned my Master's Degree in Nursing Administration in the USA this past May of 2017 and I am keenly looking forward to beginning my studies towards the doctoral degree. The area in which I am so far most widely read and the area of nursing studies in which I hope to publish in the future, is job satisfaction among nurses, and related issues such as turnover rates, particularly as applies to hospitals in Saudi Arabia, my home country. I very much look forward to decades to come designing nurse retention programs for hospitals throughout the country. I will do all that I can to maximize my contribution to the design and articulation of policies geared towards the improvement of healthcare, especially through the adoption of new technology in our hospitals.
My central goal as a nursing professional will be to streamline nursing administration in Saudi Arabia so as to encourage nurses to remain in their posts by helping to make their jobs more satisfying and fulfilling. I will closely study reasons that account for personnel turnovers in nursing in our general hospitals. I will select and tailor strategies and plans to improve the work environment and thereby increase the job satisfaction and subsequent productivity of Saudi nurses; and, thereby, the quality of patient care.
The University of California has an excellent reputation in Saudi Arabia; it is the place to go for a top-notch education if one is Saudi Arabian. The prestige and world-renowned quality of your Nursing Program at UC XXXX will enable and inspire me onward towards a lifetime of contribution to positive, progressive changes and improvements to health care and the nursing profession in Saudi Arabia.
For years now, I have dreamed of pursuing the PHD in Nursing Administration, designing and implementing policy that enhances the nursing the nursing environment resulting in greater satisfaction on the part of nurses and better outcomes for their patients. Most of all, I want to improve nursing retention in my country. Since March of 2013, I have spent as much time teaching in Saudi Arabia as I could fit into my schedule, serving as a Teaching Assistant and Clinical Instructor of Nursing at XXXX University. Much of my work involves supervising students in our clinical settings as part of our Community Health Nursing Course. It was a great honor for me as well to have given a presentation at the Annual MBAA International Conference, March 22–24, 2017, at XXXX, Chicago, IL on the subject of _________.
I thank you for consideration of my application to Nursing at UC XXXX.
