The reason that I want to become a social worker is ensure an individual’s personal welfare, help prevent crises and counsel individuals, help couples, families, and communities. My environment has helped mold me into the young woman I have become. My home atmosphere is the reason I have the characteristics that I have.

As a mother, you want to do everything you can do for your children to be successful.

This action will ensure my patient’s safety because ensure patient’s safety is one of the important task for a nurse.

No matter how embarrass I may feel, I needed to put my personal feeling aside and perform the task professionally to ensure my patient’s integrity. By acting professionally, my patient will have a stronger patient relationship with me; they will feel comfortable under my care; and they will open up to me with any issues they have regarding their
