I find life to be ironic, in that it introduces you to the things you want while keeping them just out of reach. We as humans appear to extract some type of realization or truth from each encounter as we grow and go through life experiences, both good and negative. The difference between us is whether or not we take these realities and turn them into something useful. Choosing to become a nurse was not something I was forced to do. For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to be a nurse. My interest in nursing and ambition to become a nurse stems directly from my desire to help others. I want to be a nurse because I enjoy being around people in their time of need and because serving the sick gives me a sense of fulfillment.
‘The ability to interact with our patients on such a personal level is one of the most rewarding components of a nursing job.’ While we frequently meet in terrible situations—being present as people face major health issues or accidents, seeing the moment of birth or the end of life—we rapidly get to know our patients and have the opportunity to play an essential part in their lives.
As a nurse, I will make a significant contribution to society. Nurses do a lot more than just administer medicine. As a nurse, you have the potential to make a significant impact in someone’s life. You can give people hope, even if it’s in the midst of their worst hour. After a traumatic diagnosis, nurses frequently advise patients and families, celebrate with them when they receive good news, and become trusted confidantes. My nursing profession will be put to good use by volunteering in my community. When asked what they have done to enhance the health of their community, 74 percent of nurses cited non-work-related activities in a 2017 poll. Health fairs, health-related volunteering, generating or contributing money, and traveling for volunteer work were among the activities.
