Hi, I'm starting to apply to some nursing (R.N.) schools (currently working on pre-req's), and was wondering if anyone had any good tips for writing an entrance essay on why you want to be a nurse and what your goals are? The last part is easy, but how do I separate my "why" apart from everyone else that says "I want to help people?"
I suggest to people that they try to come up with some sort of anectdote or incident in their lives that involved a nurse, or someone closed to them who was ill and taken care of by a particularly special nurse. Load it up with emotion. Let them have tears in their eyes by the time they get done reading it. People remember things that give them an emotional response, like crying, or even laughing. This is one situation where a little drama can go a long way to help you out!
Just noticed this thread in this forum that is currently ruuning. You ought to read through it.
