My hypothesis that I’m reviewing is a casual one, which is “poor health is the main reason why people become homeless”. Poor health is closely associated with homelessness. For families struggling to pay the rent, a serious illness or disability can start a downward spiral into homelessness, beginning with a lost job, depletion of savings to pay for care, and eventual eviction (National Health Care for the Homeless Council, 2008).

Though I loved helping people, the lack of diversity within the field and its restricted options for growth bothered me. I need a career that will allow me to help a large number of people, accentuate prevention and primary care rather than tertiary care. A career that will consistently challenge and stimulate me to improve.

Various factors, such as unemployment, underemployment or lack of sufficient education, have lead to individuals living impoverished lives. Many factors have been beyond their control. This paper serves to provide a more in depth look into the reasons why such is the case. The inquiry this paper serves to address is the causes for poverty remaining higher in rural areas.

The purpose of this paper is to discuss my personal philosophy of nursing and the personal and professional experiences that have contributed to the development of my view of nursing. Nineteen ninety-four was a significant year for me; it was the year I began volunteering at the local children's hospital.
This is one indicator of poor quality in healthcare. Quality healthcare is essential since it is from good health that human beings get the energy to carry on with their daily activities. Human bodies are delicate and as such, they deserve to be treated with utmost care and professionalism. This is the reason why training is essential for all people working in the healthcare sector. There are a number of regulatory bodies that are also set in place to weed out quacks that are out to exploit quick bucks from the unsuspecting public (Eve A. Kerr, 2000).
