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.
Being a part of a Professional organization allows us to make a powerful statement about who we are as nurses. It shows employers, colleagues and most of all our patients about our commitment to our nursing profession. It identifies us as a nurses who are serious about the profession as well as staying informed, educated and involves in all aspects of nursing care. Being a member of an organization is not required, but it is highly recommended. Keeping on top of any nursing advanced is a key benefit but there are many other: (N.A., 2012) 1) Networking 2) Educational opportunities 3) Access to mentors and mentoring 4) Forums on how to improve the nursing profession 5) Personal and professional growth 6) Unity Professional organizations allow nurses to speak in one loud voice.
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.
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. These qualities would reflect on the nurse and would make caring for the patient easier. I believe that I belong to this field because I always wanted to make a positive influence in people’s lives. I always felt the need to care for someone since I know that I have the power and the choice to do so.
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.
I feel that I have always had a connection to nurses in the medical field. I have always known that one I would love to help deliver babies and be a part of that support team for a new mom who is not really sure about the events that are going to happen. I remember when I had my
“Communication is at the heart of who we are as human beings”. (Rimal & Lapinski, 2009). As people, in our day to day lives, we always communicate with each other; whether it be speaking, touch, hand gestures, facial expressions or body language. Just to listen to someone is the most caring act of all. Listening and attending are by far the most important aspect of being a nurse.
My mother is the most inspiring person in my life. The reason why I chose my mother is because she is really all I have. She is my motivation, she has always been there for me and helps me live through all my struggles even during the most difficult times in my life I knew I could turn to her. I grew up with a mother and a father, but my mother was the one who pushed me to my true potential and kept me focused on doing better in school. Overall, my mother has molded me into a better student and young man.
Also having the baccalaureate degree in nursing gives me more opportunities in the competitive career world. There are many qualities that I feel a nursing student as well as a future practicing nurse should posses in order to be accomplished. Many of these qualities I feel I possess in one way or another and also have the ability to progress and strengthen. One of these qualities is solid communication skills. I feel that as a student and a later on a practicing nurse I am able to follow directions and am easily able to communicate with people.
I am also a social person who easily bonds with people around me. I am warm and therefore I easily create friendship with people that I encounter so I find my relation with them smooth all the time. People will always want to associate with someone who is social fir they believe that they will benefit from what the person possesses and in the long run they will also get to learn new concepts. In every task that I undertake, I am always hard working for I believe in giving my best in all that I do. This has earned me respect from my peers and superiors for I give my full commitment and dedication to my work.
