Setting personal goals in my life are important to me because I want to strive for personal Excellence. I hope that as long as I live I will strive to excel and learn. Achievement of a short term goal leads to a long term goal and it never ends unless I will it to end. Since I’m passionate about learning and setting goals I believe I will continue to learn and achieve new goals. One goal I am working on now is learning how to write an excellent paper, in proper APA format.

I then will study to be a clinical nurse specialist in Psychiatric Nursing or possibly become a nurse manager or nurse supervisor in Psychiatric Nursing. I could supervise Associate RN’s, LVN’s Psychiatric Technicians and CNA’s
Right now I’m not working as an RN because I’m devoting myself full time in the BSN Program at the University of Phoenix.
Another Short term goal of mine is working my exercise program which consists Of riding my exercise bike, taking walks and a few strengthening exercises to both legs. I hope to build up to one hour on the exercise bike and walking one hour a day, if time permits. I can’t forget the importance of time management.
