Sop for Nursing

By WhatIsANameFor1 Jan 17, 2013 597 Words
I am applying for the University of Sinth Carolus Scholarships. Presently I am a junior in the nursing program. I believe that my chosen profession will enable me to fulfill my desire to help others, to expand my knowledge base, and to travel. Throughout my life I have participated in extracurricular activities, including valuable volunteer experiences. I have striven for academic excellence, always wishing to make the most of my education. In addition, I have managed to work to provide some of my basic educational expenses. Education has always been an important aspect of my life. While in high school I took challenging courses, such as advanced placement English and calculus, physics, and chemistry. I enjoyed the arts and was involved in art, band, and choir. Despite the time consuming practices for concerts, parades, musicals and exhibits, I was able to maintain an excellent GPA, allowing me to graduate with honors. I decided to stay near home and come to the University of Michigan- Flint because of the smaller class size, and the excellent program offered in my major. I have received many scholarships since I began my college career. (You should list scholarships, type, and date here.) Although education plays a significant role in my life, I am involved with many other activities. During high school I was an active member of several clubs, and served as treasurer and president. I frequently tutored middle school students by offering my time before and after school. I enjoy the arts and participated in many performances, often involving travel to other parts of the United States. Currently I am involved with fellow nursing students on a class and university level. I belong to the National Student Nurses Association as well. I have volunteered my time to inform individuals about what nursing involves. I have also done community work, such as blood pressure screening, and offering information for those at risk for hypertension and diabetes. In addition to school related activities, I am involved with my local church. I teach a class of 3-6 year olds. When other teachers are unable to teach Sunday School, I come to their aid. I have participated in community cleanup, nursery day and choir. I feel that by participating in community-related activities I am setting a positive example for the children to follow. Work is also part of my life. Until recently, I worked 16-20 hours a week to provide for educational expenses. Presently I work eight hours a week in the neonatal intensive care unit at Hurley Medical Center for premature infants. I enjoy working because I am able to see newborns in progress to a state where they can finally be discharged to their families. I enjoy teaching parents about their infants. Through my work experiences I have learned more about what to expect upon completion of my nursing program. All of these experiences have helped to shape me. I have faced many challenges, balancing work and school, and I have willingly given my time. My goal is to become a registered nurse so that I can perform tasks that clients cannot do for themselves. I enjoy listening, working with others, and acting as a patient advocate and educator. I have a large number of nursing instructors who are wonderful, and who have had an influence on my life. I would one day like to give back what they have given to me by becoming an instructor. I know that when my goals are realized, I will be able to provide something meaningful to all of the patients.
