I would love to have the opportunity to graduate from nursing, because I have a strong desire to help people and make a difference in the quality of their lives every day. What is also noteworthy about nursing is that there is no another job as rewarding as being a nurse. Each day I will have an impact on patients´ lives, and have the opportunity to save someone´s life. I think there is no reward greater than that. Searching in different schools, I found that this program has a bunch of resources not only solid basics of nursing theory , but also nursing practice as well as clinical experience that will give me the opportunity of been successful in different practice situations.
My values will always consider patient first, for me patient’s need and interest is always my first priority, therefor altruism is greatest value for me as a part of nursing. I want to be a selfless nurse for whom patient’s priority is always first. Nurses always act as a pillar of support for the people who are sick and vulnerable, I want to be that pillar of support. My belief is that nurses are healers; I will consider myself being accountable and responsible. People trust and depend on nurses, and I will have the ability to win their trust and become their healer.

Why I Chose Nursing Being a nurse is a very influential and rewarding profession. Nurses care for people through illness, injury, pain, loss, dying, grieving, birth, growth, aging and health. They not only care for people through illness, but they also promote health, prevent diseases and educate the public. We all know that nursing is a field that is concerned with helping people, yet I believe that in becoming a nurse, a person needs more than that desire to succeed. It is essential for a nurse to be open, strong, determined, thoughtful and caring.
As a Hospice Nurse, I am practicing altruism on a daily basis. I am constantly advocating for my patients at the most vulnerable time in their life, without imposing my values on the patient. Autonomy is the freedom to make discretionary and binding decisions that are consistent within one’s scope of practice and the freedom to act on those decisions. (Frances Marcus Lewis R.N.,M.N.,Ph.D.) The training and education of the nurse has provided him or her with the requisite information and understanding to make independent decisions.
My vision for myself as a nurse is to continue to learn daily not just from books and journal but also from the work environment and the situation of things that happen around me. I would like to continue to grow in my profession through the acquisition of knowledge by continuing my education and achieving the professional qualifications needed to back up my career as a nurse.

The vision of the program to continue my academic career will provide the necessary foundation to build upon my nursing career. Walden will allow me to achieve my ultimate goal and continue to work on my career and present employment. The information obtained through my advanced education can be incorporated
I would love to continue to enhance my education and credentials by attaining a MSN and the Adult Nurse Practitioner certification. One of the great attributes of the nursing profession is the flexibility and numerous options available for those who choose to enter the field. With a Master’s degree, those options are expanded even further. For instance, the window is open to the opportunity of teaching, administration, research or advanced clinical training. I believe my calling is to the role of Advanced Nurse Practitioner.
He has A1 diabetes. Ever since I was a child, I wanted to be a nurse because of him. I would go to the hospital with my aunt once I got older and I would watch her take care of her patients. Seeing how happy she was helping others and how happy the patients were having her as a nurse, to this day, makes me want to step up and fulfill a nursing degree. Becoming a nurse will make each day a great difference, not only for me, but for the patients I will be taking care of.
