"My ambition from secondary school onwards has always been to become a practising nurse who makes a real and positive change to peoples lives. I have been attracted to the profession for two main reasons, firstly I’ve always had a interest in caring for people and liked the thought of working in a large hospital environment where I can be involved in the hands on medical treatment of patients. Secondly because I know its a financially rewarding and secure career where there are many employment opportunities for graduates in both the NHS and private sectors.
Although I understand that nursing can be a very demanding profession I feel it can also be a very satisfying one where you have the chance to enhance people's lives during their times of need. After all the hard work I put into my degree course and training I look forward to being rewarded with a exciting career that will give me excellent benefits, flexible working practices and plenty of scope for progression.
I’m a sociable person and feel that I have the correct mental attitude, personality and social skills which are required to communicate effectively with patients of all ages and backgrounds. Through my recent work placement I have experienced the stresses and strains of working in a variety of healthcare settings and I was told by my peers that I had coped quiet well with them. It was over the summer months that I was fortunate enough to have obtained a placement at a local health centre where I shadowed professional nurses and assisted them in minor non medical ways. During this period I was mentored and got to see a vast range of patients in a multitude of different settings including their homes. This real live experience in a clinical practise gave me a new perspective on the medical sector and confirmed to me that I had made the right career choice.
Right now I feel that I am ready to enrol on a degree course and have spent the last few weeks looking for one that will give me the skills needed to work in the modern health service. I want to learn nursing from both a clinical and business perspective and I feel your university course is best positioned to offer me this."
