I posted in this forum b/c this topic seems to fit here but I hope to get some input from those who are a bit more seasoned in the nursing world as well!
I searched the archives for threads on this topic but nothing quite answered my specific questions.
Sorry to beat a dead horse ......
The schools I am applying to have multiple questions to answer (not pick one or two) They are also very straight forward questions which almost seem to duplicate each other , for example:
1/ why do you want to be a nurse
2/ what life experiences have led you towards the nursing field
3/ what academic challenges have you faced
and so on....
should I number my responses and just answer the questions?
that seems so lame . I wanted to be all creative and prolific but maybe that is not for nursing school applications
May I write an essay and incorporate all the answers in the same orderthey are asked, but without the question/answer format?
Is it appropriate to bring up my family - I would not want to refer to my boyfriend as my "baby's daddy", "boyfriend" or anything that I actually do refer to him as IRL.
Using the word partner does not work for me and I certainly would not refer to him as my husband. IRL I don't care what people think as far as the fact that we are not hitched but I feel like I need to be so conservative in expressing myself on the application.
Thanks for any advice!
