College Essay
I believe my nursing philosophy started forming while I was a child growing up with my grandmother in
Jamaica. Looking back I can remember my grandmother fixing meals for the sick and the disabled. At
times I was asked to deliver these meals and even helped with little chores as needed.
I tried to resist my inner feelings for service because quite a few of my close relatives chose
health care. Instead, I carved my own pathway and became first a kindergarten teacher. Later, I went on
to college to become a Home Economics teacher.
As the years went on my path took me to the United States to join my parents. Here I went into banking,
taking classes here and there while stating away from the health industry. As time went by I decided to
pursue my BS ...view middle of the document...

One of my residents was at the early stage of Alzheimer disease. This resident along with her family
developed a great relationship with me. She was aware of the seriousness of her disease and knew that
later things will get worst. She was also aware that I was a student and was heading in a different
direction. However, she asked if I would stay on to take care of her throughout her illness. I promised
her that I would be with her as long as I am needed.
In the meantime, I graduated with my BS and even started some Masters classes. Over the years I had
developed an empathy for those who were ill. This allowed me to work closely with the health team.
Seven years later she passed away and I was now unemployed. I was now at a crossroad of my life, I
began to search myself in order to make the right decision. I then decided to enter nursing and enrolled
in a community college for the prerequisites for the nursing program. I was accepted to a LPN bridge
program in Washington. One of my goals was to complete the RN program before leaving Washington.
During that time I realized that my parents needed me in Florida. My dad was having health issues and
that prompted me to relocate to be closer to them. My dad passed away six months later.
My goals remained the same and I am more determined to see my Mission Statement through.
‘I want to complete my nursing education so that I can positively impact the lives of people around and
provide a better life for myself’. Southeastern would help me to accomplish my dreams. This institution
would give me the skills to build on the foundation that I now have. My long term goals after
Southeastern is to complete my MBA in Health Management. Furthering my education will afford me
the skills and knowledge to be of better service to my residents.
