419 Words2 Pages
It was very hard for me to start writing this paper. I was brainstorming with my husband over whom or what inspired me to attend college. I had lots of good ideas why or who helped me reach this point in my life. The morals I grew with, the current economy and the feeling that I had a point to prove was all just part of why choose to attend college. My husband went on to explain to me that all of these things and people were just a factor of why I choose to go back to school and pursue a degree in nursing. In that instance, I realized that it was only me who made the decision to attend college. When choosing what to study in college I knew that whatever I choose to study had to involve helping people. I grew up caring for others. Helping people was something that was instilled in me by my family at a very early age. So, to me the most rewarding feeling is to know that I helped someone. As a LPN, it will be my sole purpose to help others that are sick or unable to perform daily task for themselves. The simple fact of knowing that I will be helping others every day will give me a sense of accomplishment and purpose. The economy has also played a large role in why I have chosen to pursue a degree in the medical field. I did some research and found that the demand for nurses is very high. The job placement after college is very good as with other degrees that is not always true. I also found that the income is sufficient enough to provide a decent lifestyle for myself and my family. I feel comfortable knowing that no matter how bad the economy is I will have a job and be able to provide for my family. Growing up I was always told that I had to attend college and be something great. So I guess in a sense I have to prove to myself and others that I can achieve this. When I graduate it will give me a piece of mind knowing that I did what I was destined to do. Graduating and receiving my degree will be one of my greatest accomplishments.
