aarooj 1 / 1 Jan 20, 2015 #1Please state educational and career goals and the reason for choosing your major.Help me revise short essay!For as long as I can remember I had an infatuation with nurses. How they worked at the same levels as doctors and surgeons but were more compassionate and gentle and all knowing. Its my goal in life to become a pediatric oncologist nurse. Cancer has been vast part of my life since elementary school. The disease of cancer intrigued my mind, and introduced me to the medical field. I began using my free to learn about cancer and other medical things. During high school I took sports medicine, which introduced me to anatomy and working with athletes(patients). A great aspect of nursing is communicating with your patients and being able to read them. And being an athletic trainer in sports medicine, thats what I had to do.I'm choosing nursing as my major, because my passion is literally helping others, and learning. My goal is to receive my bachelors in nursing, and then RN license, I plan to work towards specializing in pediatrics and then oncology. I hope one day to maybe be able to do cancer research, as i mentioned earlier the process behind how cancer works really intrigues me. I've seen many people have cancer and watched how it affected their lives and those around them and I want to be able to help those people with the healing process. I think a large part of nursing is also being there for your patients and families emotionally, and I believe I can do that because I have felt the repercussions of cancer within my own family.
