From my childhood, I have always been very active and engaged to a task I was given. I always wanted to achieve a goal I was given, not affecting my interpersonal capabilities. When I grew up and was on the phase of choosing my career path, I always wanted to have a career which is interesting, challenging, and which makes a difference in everyday life. I decided that I want to choose nursing as my profession, because it involves dealing with patients on daily basis, and there is a lot of variety in this work. One of the main factors I wanted to be a nurse is that, in hospitals you have to deal with the patients and their families (Kearney-Nunnery, 2015). Sometimes, there is a case where these families become happy just because of the doctor or a nurse. It was satisfying for me that someone is happy because of me. My mother is also a nurse from past seven years, and watching her being satisfied everyday with her job, and making others happy inspired me a lot. Working for the welfare and society is a big concern, and being a nurse makes me feel that I can give a lot to this society.

Practicing medical science as a profession, will make my dream come true to discover science even better. Where there is desire, every work can be accomplished (Kearney-Nunnery, 2015). Following this belief, I want to be a nurse because I will take it as an activity not a profession, which will make me more effective in my work.

It has a huge impact on me as I think, I deem fit in this career, as I can provide change in the hospital experience for the patients and help them effectively. My mom usually took me to her medical facility, and I used to observe the environment and the challenges she had to face.

Providing emotional and medical care are linked together, and it is also one of the factors I want to become a nurse. However, keeping the disadvantages in mind, I want to provide care for the people and serve for humanity to become a better person here and the hereafter.
