me and the reasons why I want to shift to the nursing profession in pursuance of my larger and longer-term goals in life which are to eventually qualify and get a masters degree in research nursing leading to a meaningful and fulfilling work in a cancer research facility.
I am 25 years old, married, and originally from Nigeria but migrated to the United States of America, had attended the Houston Community College and finally graduated with an Associates Degree in Science. I am presently enrolled with the Texas Southern University to get a Bachelors Degree in Healthcare Administration but after careful thought and a deep soul-searching process, finally decide to shift to the nursing industry as a professional in order to put my skills and talents to better use which I think are better suited in the field of nursing. I already have five years of relevant working experience in the health industry working as a nursing assistant and working on average at least 72 hours per week. I really love what I do by genuinely caring for the patients under my watch despite the tiring work and often very long and odd hours due to the exigencies and demands of the nursing profession. I do not mind all the challenges as I am passionate about this type of work and feel real compassion for people.
My work experiences and the related academic backgrounds in the health sciences in conjunction with my present college course in health care administration provide necessary or important foundation for a shift towards nursing because these fields are all inter-related. This makes the transition to nursing much easier and facilitates the integration of knowledge when I study nursing in your university. However, the grades in my transcript were quite adversely affected by a sudden unforeseen major illness and then followed by a death in the family.
