your reasons and motivations for entering the nursing profession and how the Seattle University BSN program fits your career, educational, and personal goals.

Personal Essay

Several factors weigh in heavily when choosing which career path to follow , and well it should , for changing careers is one of those decisive moments that could (and will ) greatly impact one 's life requiring maturity and careful consideration of one 's personal preference in view of practical concerns . My decision to shift to a nursing profession is one borne out of careful consideration of those factors and , more importantly , the desire to answer the call of my sense of social responsibility

I was a lecturer at a university

in my native country of China , after having received my Bachelor 's degree in Physics and a Master 's degree in Biochemistry about 8 years ago . Being a teacher was a job I immensely enjoyed as it afforded me the chance to directly interact and work with people , something which I really like doing .

I believe Nursing will also give me the sense of having directly contributed something to society a path to a better quality of life and living through providing premium and quality healthcare . Coming from a Chinese first generation immigrant background , I have experienced firsthand the needs and difficulties in providing quality healthcare especially for new immigrants . As it is , my long-term career goal is to eventually get a graduate degree in healthcare-related fields and be in a position to make a broader impact to the community , such as designing or managing healthcare systems , or teaching said systems to others .
