Hi All,

I am applying to nurse school and would like others to read my short answer response to get some feedback. I am not very good when it comes to things like this. So, please, bear with me.

Prompt:

** Describe your perceptions and attitude about nursing today.


In your answer, identify current information about the field of nursing including the demands, expectations, and career options. ** What do you believe are the demands of a nursing education and how have you prepared to make this significant change to your current situation? ** Given your personal background, describe an experience that illustrates what you would bring to the University learning community in terms of diversity, or an encounter that demonstrated the importance of diversity to you.


Answer:
Choosing a career in nursing is not something that one should do lightly; being a nurse is not necessarily a glamorous job but it is a rewarding job. The compassion and care provided to patients and their families are what being a nurse is all about. With the nursing shortage that is being experienced within the healthcare field and the percent of the population that is projected to be over the age of 50 years old in the coming years, the demands of an individual nurse are higher. There are higher nurse-to-patient ratios and along with that a greater number of patients with higher acuity, but even with all of this, my passion for being in the healthcare field only grows after every shift. Having the ability to be an advocate for my patients, while also providing high-quality care that is within my scope has been some of the most rewarding things I have experienced. Working in the medical field for the last 9 years alongside nurses has given me a very good perspective and has prepared me to embark on the next stage of my education and career.

Receiving and retaining all that is required to become a nurse is going to be quite demanding but, I believe, it will be gratifying given that at the end of it all I will have achieved my initial goal of becoming a nurse. The theory, evidence-based science, and practical hands-on training are key aspects of any nurse's education. This training prepares nurses to go out into the field and provide excellent patient care and is a springboard for different career paths. Being a nurse is very versatile and there are a number of roles that a nurse can fill. Some may go the management route, and some may want to get specialized training in a specific specialty. My goal after getting my RN is to continue my education to earn my DNP while also giving back to the community while working in the field.

Creating a diverse space is not just important it is an integral aspect of any place of work, school, and community. Learning and listening to different experiences and cultures provides for a more enriching environment. In the medical field specifically, having a team of people with different cultures and life experiences gives a better opportunity for more wholistic problem solving and allows for the patients to feel heard/seen/the opportunity to feel more connected.

my passion for being in the healthcare field only grows after every shift.

Please clarify, are you already working as a nurse or in a related field ? This statement could confuse the reviewer.

alongside nurses

As what? In what capacity have you worked with nurses? How did the direct exposure feed your interests?

The responses lose track of the prompt questions later on. I see no reference to:

how have you prepared to make this significant change to your current situation?

Given your personal background, describe an experience that illustrates ... importance of diversity to you.

Seeing as there are 2 considerable qquestions in the application essay, these cannot go unanswered. The essay needs to be completely revised to ensure that all written interview points are met. Right now, the essay is mostly composed of brainstorming ideas that need better development. For the next version doa question and response outline to help you see if you have ommitted any responses or if any question can use enhanced answers based on what is written at the time.
