Nursing Application Essay: appropriate to use citations?

  1. Hello!
    I am currently writing one of the essays required for a MSN nursing program application. The question is: "What is the one most pressing health care concern today and what qualities would you bring to your future nursing practice to address these concerns?"

    I am planning to write about disparities in health care treatment. It feels appropriate with this topic to utilize external sources to support my argument. Do any of you have experience in using citations in a college admissions essay like this? It feels very formal to do so, but i would like to properly support my work with facts and figures. If so, what citation style would you recommend?

    Thank you!!

    Most nursing schools use APA
