1. This is an essay for college, so use academic prose (no slang, contractions, and try to avoid words like I, me, our, your, very).
2. Address the topics that you are asked about specificly, not just in a round-a-bout way.
3. Make them take an interest in you, show them why you are passionate about nursing.
4. Do not make long description's about your day or narratives about stories you think apply (if you do, at least keep in brief), get to the point
