Oh, the frustration.

I'm currently working on draft 3 of my "Why I want to be a nurse" essay and goodness knows I feel like it'll never be good enough. I can barely express my thoughts verbally, let alone written. Part of me wants to write "I want to a nurse because I want a career that will get me on the first rescue boat off of a sinking ship" :sarcastic::roflmao: , but since those kinds of jokes won't go over well with administration, I'll continue to struggle.

Any tips would be awesome!

Hmm - based on universal nursing culture, we'd flip into disaster response mode, set up an impromptu triage station to determine which passengers go first. We'd organize an orderly, priority-based loading protocol & monitor for good body mechanics as we launched the lifeboats.... before any of us left that sinking ship.

The reality is - we are the do-ers, not the highly visible, publicly adored "hero" who gets all the credit.

I'm still learning to work this

That's nothing, but the truth. I see it everyday at clinicals :) I appreciate that because it just inspired me!
