I want to go into public health because I believe strongly that I can contribute not only to my fellow Americans, but also to people all over the world. I anticipate that through proper planning, interventions and implementation of effective policies, one will be able to bring about much-needed change through my work with an NGO or non-profit affiliated with the UN. I started to explore the different fields of medicine by working as a Medical Scribe in the Emergency Department, ER tech in Trauma Centers, getting involved in research, volunteering at hospitals and taking high level science classes.

All of my interests have been merged into one magical puzzle through Public Health.
With this I am hoping to work with many other healthcare professionals to coordinate health programs and initiatives to improve the health of communities. Having a background in health promotion alongside the leadership and management skills and the real world experience that I intended to gain from this program will give me all I need to make this
This obligation takes many forms. I would personally accomplish this goal by reading health education journals, previewing new products, and being aware of what can affect my community both positively and negatively. I will look forward to becoming a healthcare administrator, and being part of a larger community. As healthcare educators, we are offered a chance to improve the quality of many peoples ' lives including family and friends. We are the faces of the community, with the common goal of building a healthy community.
I can compare the professional values of caring to me wanting to pursue a BSN by making the patient a priority. Advancing my education helps me to care for my patients in a better way because I am learning new ways to promote health and wellness by using evidence-based practice. I also wanted to pursue a BSN because I knew it would help advance my critical thinking skills as a nurse. Critically thinking and working as a team are extremely important when caring for patients. The care that I provide creates lasting and trusting relationships with patients that they will never
Having achieved this will open more doors in continuing my career in Nursing Informatics (NI). Moving from the clinical specialist at bedside, to now my current position as clinical information technologist (IT), allows me to continue to work indirectly with patients, which I enjoy. I feel I am now more of the advocate for my fellow nurses and physicians building the “user friendly” electronic health record (EHR). Nursing is ever changing, challenging, rewarding, and I am grateful to have had all the opportunities in my career. My career journey will take me to a different aspect of nurturing however, just as important our patients are we too must nurture each other.
By working with medical professionals and patients, I became familiar with treatment regimens, pharmaceutics, and the application of practical changes that could maintain even reverse many debilitating diseases. One of my duties was to advocate for patients detailing accurate descriptions of medications and treatment protocol, interpreting their application to patients. This also greatly supported my interpersonal skills and ability to work in a collaborative environment. Indeed, my peers recognized me for the Youth Leadership Award and the Ventura County Council presented me with the Volunteer Excellence Award, a privilege and honor I take pride in. At UCSB, I am heavily involved in similar non-profit philanthropy like Doctors Without Walls, cultivating my passion for assisting others, by organizing a weekly clinic for homeless women.
Through many experiences, I have developed a fascination with the concept that an individual’s health and wellness are deeply rooted in a complex interconnection of the mind, body, and environment. My goal is to improve peoples’ mental and physical well-being using a holistic approach involving this interconnection. I wish to provide wellness services to the public by obtaining skills and knowledge and eventually creating an entrepreneurial health-promoting business. I am most interested in the field of health behavior because it will provide me with the skills that are essential to my achievement of my long-term goals. I want to obtain a better understanding of health education as well as human behavior on individual and group levels so that I may better understand clients’ needs and produce solutions for them.
I have an unquenchable desire to learn and develop the mind. I believe, one of the greatest ways to better care for individuals, families, communities and the population was to pursue the Master of Public Health Program and concentrate on Community Health Education. With the Master of Public Health degree, I can better understand how to implement, plan and evaluate health promotion and disease prevention programs to better serve different communities. I want to pursue a master’s degree to focus on my career interest more in-depth. Choosing to pursue the MPH program is a lifelong self-fulfillment, because there is no greater satisfaction than knowing I am going to wake up every day to improve the lives of people all around the world.

Forcing myself outside of my comfort zone when it comes to nursing will enable me to reach my full potential. I want be generous with my time, knowledge, energy and compassion.

I studied medicine because I wanted to be in profession of protecting lives. I would like to study public health because I think it is very important. Being a doctor I can see the importance of public health. As a physician, I can treat one patient at a time, but preventive policies and actions by public health can save entire communities from outbreaks. Public health plays a central role in containing and eventually controlling such diseases through public education.
