Historical background[ edit ] During past decades, the changes in education have replaced the more practically focused, but often ritualistic, training structure of conventional preparation. Nurse education integrates today a broader awareness of other disciplines allied to medicine, often involving inter-professional education, and the utilization of research when making clinical and managerial decisions. Orthodox training can be argued to have offered a more intense practical skills base, but emphasized the handmaiden relationship with the physician.
So I am applying for a nurse practitioner program and I had to write a goal essay under the directions to "write a well-crafted statement about your desire to become a family nurse practitioner. Include information about yourself and your professional goals. Please type separately and limit yourself to words.
So this is my draft that I have come up with. If you guys would give me some opinions and suggestions on it I would greatly appreciate it!
I hate any bug that crunches when I step on it. Junebugs, beetles, cockroaches, if it crunches when you step on it, I hate it. One day while working as a hemodialysis nurse, I was talking to a patient and a beetle ran by my foot. I panicked and unsuccessfully attempted to kill the beetle with a trash can.
I hate crunchy bugs! From that day on, every time I saw him he asked me if I had stepped on any crunchy bugs lately and it became our running joke. Moments like these are one of the reasons I love patient care, particularly chronic care. Working with the same patients builds a bond that is unrivaled by any other specialty.
Becoming a family nurse practitioner will grant me the ability to continue building these bonds while refining my knowledge of chronic conditions and obtaining the capacity to provide quality holistic care to better the community I serve.
My drive for chronic disease management stems from the fact that I come from a family with an extensive history of chronic illness.
I understand the importance of appropriate education, monitoring, and management. Because it is near to my heart and may very well be in my future, it is a focus I am passionate about.
I look forward to working through the challenges and providing my patients and community the resources and education to enable their success and provide quality care they deserve.
I have also worked as a charge nurse in a busy 16 chair hemodialysis clinic where I was responsible for the supervision of 4 other staff members and 32 patients.
These experiences have made increased autonomy a comfortable fit for me and is also another appealing aspect of becoming a family nurse practitioner.
I know to trust my instincts and that with increased responsibility comes new and harder challenges that I welcome with an open-minded determination. One of my goals is to become involved in a community health program that provides education to the public about awareness and management of chronic illness and participating in public events to promote healthy lifestyle and resources to my community.
One of mybiggest goals is to eventually teach.
When I have gained years of experience and continued education, I would be honored to pass that knowledge and wisdom to the next generation of family nurse practitioners to carry on with this noble profession.
Would you submit this goal statment?Now, after five years of schooling, and four years of intensive nursing experience in Neuroscience Intensive Care Units at ABC Hospital in Tampa, and ABC Hospital in Orlando, this philosophy drives my desire to advance my career even further.
To that end, I am enrolling in the Adult Nurse Practitioner program. Regis University’s MS in Nursing with a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner specialization prepares you for an in-demand career working with high-risk infants.
