I am applying to Loyola Chicago's FNP program. I have one year experience on a med-surg floor. My transcripts and letter of recommendations speak to my abilities, but I am having trouble writing a concise and thorough personal statement. Does anyone know exactly what they are looking for in the personal statement? I want this very badly and want to make sure I do everything I can the first time around! In the statement, they are looking for qualities of a good nurse practitioner and experience examples.
