Why I want to be a Nurse
Choosing the career of my future was one of the toughest decisions I had to make. During my underclassmen years, while many of my peers had already chosen the career path they wanted to pursue, I still was struggling to make a decision. By the end of junior year, with no clear career goal in mind, I was really starting to panic.
It was not until I started watching a certain youtuber’s vlog that I became interested in nursing. This youtuber had recently been diagnosed with cancer and in his vlogs he talked about how the staff at the hospital, especially the nurses, was extremely caring and helped him through that difficult time in his life. There were several times when he would get emotional thanking the nurses for all they had done. I realized how I wanted to be able to help someone in the way the nurses had helped him.
I have always dreamed of a career which I would truly enjoy for the rest of my life and I believe nursing is that career. Nursing, as a profession would be a personally rewarding job in many aspects and also set me up for a successful career for my future. I want to be a nurse because I enjoy being around people in their times of need and I get internal satisfaction by serving those that need help. I believe that if I fully devote my life to achieving this goal I can become a wonderful addition to the medical field and make a difference. Nursing to me is more than a profession it is an art.
I believe that caring is the essence of nursing, and that it goes beyond just science. Being a nurse means helping patients find deeper meanings to their illnesses and suffering so that they are able to understand themselves better and are able to heal. Thus, I believe that if I am to become a nurse I have to be consciously engaged in caring for the patients if I am to connect and establish relationships that work to promote my patient’s health and healing. I look forward to forming these relationships .
