I'm writing my admission letter and need some feedback before submitting it. This is my rough draft. I can handle criticism so please be honest. The questions are;
- Your understanding of the role of a nurse in today's health care environment and how you envision yourself embodying those roles
- Your interest in this particular nursing program at Michigan State University
- Your characteristics, experiences, abilities and plan that will enhance your ability to succeed in this program
Nurse's today play an interdependent role, working alongside many other healthcare workers and their patients. The nurses' role is to provide constant care throughout the patients stay, coordinating care from healthcare providers and helping the patient with the transitioning from the hospital to their home setting, while showing compassion and maintaining their patience. To better understand what a nurse deals with on a day-to-day basis, I volunteered at my local hospital in the hospice unit, where I got the chance to learn the skills and knowledge to know how to address individuals facing an end of life issues, and how proper palliative care is administered, in addition, learning how to correctly approach mortality. I admire Michigan State University Nursing program, as many graduates become leaders in the healthcare setting. The faculty shows passion and understanding to their students with many programs to help students transition to the nursing program. I believe that MSU rigorous nursing program will help prepare me for the NCLEX-RN exam. The nursing program will be a challenge and an adventure for me, but I plan to be successful in the nursing program by staying organized, being prepared, joining a study group, communicating with my fellow peers, and balancing my social and work life. Although, balancing multiple classes, work and family life has been difficult I've managed to show perseverance and a strong performance in my classes. I have accomplished many of my goals thus far in my life and I am determined and dedicated to doing what it takes to accomplish my dream goal of becoming a registered nurse. By applying my prior knowledge and skills I have learned throughout my healthcare experience would help guide me through the nursing program and becoming successful. With my experience and knowledge, I believe that I can make an impact on society and my fellow peers in the nursing program due to my strong work ethic, communication skills and my drive to succeed can influence and motivate those around me. I feel that I was given a gift that most people don't have. I`m hoping that I will be given the opportunity to contribute to my community and to help change lives. I don't believe there is any other profession that would bring me as much joy and happiness than becoming a nurse.
