Adult Nursing Personal Statement
After graduating from Northeastern University with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, my first job was with Enterprise Rent-A-Car as a management trainee.
I had not really thought about a career path because I expected my BS and my internship would lead to a successful career in the computer industry.
After several months with Enterprise Rent-A-Car, I realised that this job was not what I had expected. I needed a career in an industry that had longevity, security, and an opportunity to grow and develop my strengths. Each morning became more difficult to wake up and go to work.
I realised that my happiest moments were when I saw the expression on customers’ faces after helping them thought a tough situation. After a few months, I decided that I needed a more fulfilling career.
I took a job at SunLife Financial as an administrative coordinator. Working at SunLife Financial for the past year has made me come to realise that I have a passion for helping people that isn’t being satisfied, because I don’t interact with many people.
After carefully researching other career opportunities and speaking with family members and friends. I came to the realization that Nursing would best suit my compassion and innate desire to help people.
My sister is the most influential person in my life. As a nurse for the past six years, I have watched and heard her excel in her career; each day we talk, she describe what her patient did that day and how today was better than yesterday, a very rewarding and successful career and she truly enjoys her job.
After speaking with her regarding my career goal, she convinced me that since I enjoy helping people, being a nurse will fit my personality.
I am confident that I will achieve my goal of becoming a nurse. Through my vast array of knowledge and conversations with my sister and other nurses; I am certain that I possess the requisite commitment and stamina to meet the challenge of your curriculum.
I am highly aware of the superb reputation of your school, and my conversations with several of your alumni have served to deepen my interest in attending Simmons. I know that your excellent faculty is among the best in the state. I hope you will give me the privilege of continuing my studies at your fine institution.

I like what I have written so far, Since I don't have any experience relating to the field, I have the knowledge. I like the part that I talk about my sister and I also want a strong intro to capture the reader. I need a strong conclusion.
