Why I Want To Become A Nurse

by Adam on February 20, 2011

There is no one reason that I have decided to become a nurse, rather a combination of reasons. I have decided to become a nurse so I can provide the support to patients while they are in states of uncertainty in the hospital, so I can become an integral part of the team that is going to care for the patient. I want to be the person to tell the patient that I understand what they are going through and the emotions that they are experiencing and mean it.

I want to be an empathetic nurse that is able to use my skills for identifying with people’s emotions to the best of my ability, allowing me to become a nurse that is going to use these skills to do just that.

I want to be a nurse because I would like to have a job that can allow me to literally transfer my skills anywhere in the world. Through the programs that can allow me to become licensed in other parts of the world to the many traveling nursing programs that are available, I want to become a nurse so I can easily take part in these programs and discover other parts of the world while helping patients.

I want a career that is going to give me the versatility to work in an office of a local physician, a hospital or even another type of health care facility, while allowing me to choose which branch of nursing that I am going to take part in – whether I choose to work with children or the elderly, or choose to focus on critical care or family medicine. These choices can help me to create the career that I want in the amount of time that I need.

The reasons that I want to be a nurse are likely similar to other nurses’ reasons and include the innate desire to help people. As a nurse, I will be able to provide the support and comfort to patients that they require at times when they are scared and confused, at times when the patient is at their most vulnerable. Some companies offer nursing scholarships for moms to be able to reach their career goals even if they’re not able to afford the high costs of education.

These are all great reasons for becoming a nurse. I am a nurse in Canada and you can search the college of nurses of ontario CNO, for other reasons. We have something called the professional standards of practice, which if you review could help you include some key things such as empathy, your desire for continued competence, etc, etc. Email me at info@torontoschoolofnursing.com or http://torontoschoolofnursing.com. I specialize in CRNE, but would love to help you if you have any questions. Good luck and let me know if you have any questions.
