Personal Statement for Admission in Nursing
Q: Your rationale for choosing a career in nursing?
I am passionate about making a difference in the life of others that is why I want to choose nursing as a profession. It will give me an opportunity to serve those who are in need, save lives and bring happiness to patients and their families. Moreover, there is a constant room to grow in this field. One can continuously progress in career through accomplishing different levels of qualification. Another reason is, I like embracing challenges and I find this field extremely challenging as the health of patient can go down unexpectedly or sometimes casualty ward unexpectedly become full. This profession can help me learn a lot in professional as well as personal life, especially when it comes to controlling myself physically and emotionally while handling critical situations. I believe this field can give me all that I aspire to become in my life.
Q: Include any experience in a health care setting:
I had multiple experiences in health care settings. But the one which moved me was when I accompanied my grandfather to his hospital visits because he had cancer. He was very old and suffered from extreme pain which made it difficult for him to explain what his condition was and how was he feeling. I was very close to him and I focused on his health issues very much by staying with him as much as I could. I wanted to give him as much care as it was possible and I was very much concerned that he gets the same care from the hospital too, as I had to keep up with my educations and other tasks as well, I was not available 24/24 hours with him and he needed 24 hours care at all costs. I was completely astonished to see how well and professionally nurses took care of my grandfather. I witnessed how much tentative and concerned nursing staff was to take care of grandfather. They were kind and comforting whenever they communicated with me, my family or my grandfather and made sure to soothe us. Never for once, they said it was over for my grandfather and he cannot be cured, they simply kept motivating my grandfather that he can fight back with his diseases and uplifted our hopes as well. I was extremely inspired to see their attitude.
Q: Explain any academic difficulties you have faced, and how you addressed it:
I faced a lot of problems in learning chemistry. I always thought reactions and composition of substances are out of my league and they are what I cannot learn well. But I knew I had to overcome this hurdle to pass chemistry if I ever want to achieve what I aspire. I started giving a lot of time in learning reactions and understanding compositions of the substances. But soon, I realized I was doing it all wrong because it was taking most of my time and I couldn’t pay attention to my other subjects. I discussed my problem with my friend and she recommended that all I need is to pay attention during the lectures, if something is bothering me or not making any sense I can always ask my professor to elaborate it more, and no one should feel shame in doing that. When I started following her advice, it helped me a lot and things actually started making sense to me.
Q: Summarize your strengths and areas needing improvement:
Do what is right and ethical even when no one is monitoring.
Stay positive and hope for the best.
Criticize myself for my actions and thoughts, thinking I could have done better.
Get emotional seeing someone else’s pain and take these emotions with me to home.
Overly assertive when it comes to management.
Cannot say no if someone asks for my availability, even though my shift is over and I had my personal businesses waiting for me in life.
