Even with a brief nursing career, most nurses will agree that nursing has been and will remain one of the most satisfying careers; “…as long as there are people that have the desire to change the world, one relationship at a time”. (Pellico, 2006, p.33) Many people enter nursing for personal reasons, such as having to learn how to take care of a loved one with a new diagnosis or having family in the nursing field. This paper will also show growth in the baccalaureate nursing program from the original philosophy paper.

Being a nurse has always meant more to me than a white dress, it provides excellent job, opportunities, as well as an identity. Although nursing is a great career, it is much more than just a job.

My Contribution to the History of Nursing Throughout the history of nursing, there have been many remarkable individuals who have made great contributions to this field and profession. Some made vast differences in improving the work of nursing, while others made huge differences in the everyday lives of their patients, with their comforting and nurturing ways. So as I sit here and try to imagine my future ahead of me as a nurse, I can’t say for certain that I’m going to drastically change the nursing profession with some big contribution or development. I can say however, that I am going to put my heart and soul into being the kind of nurse who will be there for my patients, making contributions to better their lives every day. I made the decision to pursue the field of nursing because it embraces so many aspects of a career that I have been looking to be a part of.
A Career in Nursing A career as a Registered Nurse has many rewards, benefits, and opportunities. Just imagine being able to care for a newborn baby during its’ first moments of life, or the since of satisfaction when a patient is at the brink of death, but makes a full recovery, in part to the care given, by a nurse, during their hospital stay. (Brittany Mason, 2010) This career will afford plenty of extra time. That time may be spent with family and friends, or possibly pursuing a hobby that interest you. The opportunities vary and are seemingly endless.
The negative sides of the job never really get touched upon. Unfortunately there are always going to be some unhappy endings.

For the past several years I have known almost every detail of what I plan to do after high school. I have always been extremely passionate with helping those in need, and caring for other people. This, and the fact that my mother is a registered nurse, has led me to believe that pursuing a medical degree is what I am meant to do with my life. I have always loved school and always wanted to be important to those around me, and I feel as though being someone who cares whole-heartedly for those who are sick and ill, is a perfect way to express my passion for helping those in need. I came to the conclusion of joining the medical field several years ago after my first serious injury.

I have a genuine interest in this field as when I was growing up I looked after my Nan who was heavily disabled. This is where I got a lot of satisfaction in caring as I could see my work generally making a difference to someone’s life. My first professional job in the care and nursing industry was as a Nursing Auxillary at the local General Hospital. I completed some basic training which I enjoyed immensely and ended up being placed onto the orthopedic ward. Car crash victims and knee and hip replacement patients were now part of my daily routine, As my time there grew I was invited to attend theatre a couple of times which boosted my skills and knowledge even more.
