I am very new to the forum, new as in this in my first post. In the past year I have decided to go to nursing school. I was first accepted to a school that wasn't accredited, so I switched gears and am now trying to apply to an accredited school. One of the things it asks for is an essay. There are 3 options....
1. Share your plans or future goals after
you graduate from MCCN.
2. Elaborate on characteristics you see in
an excellent health care professional.
3. What is the greatest risk you have
taken and what did you learn as a
result of it?
I am thinking of choosing essay #1, but I am a little nervous about writing it of course. What do you think they are looking for in my essay? Essays are supposed to be 300 words or less. My general plan is to be a trauma nurse, so I just would really appreciate some pointers on important things to include. I don't just want to say "when I grow up I want to be a nurse in the ER!" or sound like a complete fool in the essay. I am working on it at the moment, but was just looking for some general guidance and any pointers.
