My Career Choice: Doctor

All my life I’ve wanted to be a doctor. I’d walk around my house with my plastic stethoscope and doctor bag ‘taking care’ of my family. I’ve just always been drawn to it. I think that it also may have something to do with heredity. Both my mother and my grandmother have worked in the hospital; my mom in the mom and baby unit, and my grandmother as a floor nurse. However, that’s just a theory of mine. At the moment, I plan to go to college for four years or more to become a registered nurse. And hopefully, get my masters degree to become a midwife. As a registered nurse you have a very wide range of things you can do in, and also out of the hospital. In order to reach my dreams of becoming a registered nurse I must go to college in a four year program so I can get my bachelor’s of science degree in nursing (BSN), and associate degree in nursing (ADN). While in high school I need to maintain a G.P.A of at least a 3.0. The reason for this is so I can be immediately accepted into a nursing school, or a nursing program. Like Miami University for example, if I maintain that 3.0 throughout high school I will be able to start nursing school immediately after I graduate instead of having to take a whole year of college and maintaining a grade higher than a B- before starting my nursing education. In preparation to become a registered nurse I am currently taking Chemistry I CP and Algebra II CP. Also, I am in an excellent program that helps me prepare for some things that are associated with health careers. Some examples would be taking respirations, pulse, blood pressure, apical pulse, height and weight, and other such things. Also we learn about the many different systems of the body. The class is a total of 3 periods long... ... middle of paper ... ...erinarian though. For example I may have to deal with pets that are nervous, anxious, scared, or in severe pain. As we all know, when an animal is any of these things they tend to act out, whether it is by using the restroom on your floor or trying to bite you. Also it would be extremely hard for me to have to euthanize the animals, although it probably would be for the better. I believe that I am currently doing what is necessary for me to reach my goals in life in terms of the courses I am taking and the Health Careers program that I am currently in. Hopefully I will pursue my dream of helping people and treating them correctly when it comes to a medical emergency. If I can’t do this for some reason such as not graduating medical school, I plan to go to a Veterinarian school to become a veterinarian where I can still help humans as well as animals and pets.
