Example Nursing School Admission Essay

My name is Kim Fines and I am a 2004 graduate from Arcadia High School in Arcadia, WI. During my high school years I was an extremely active individual. I was a member of the Future Business Leaders of America

organization. I participated in regional and state levels of competition all four years of high school. I was an office assistant for two years and was also chairperson of various community service projects such as a clothing drive and raffle drawings to raise money for the World Trade Center victims. Not only was I active in FBLA, but I was also a member of the Committees of Student Council club, National Honors Society, and the Varsity sports club. I also participated in volleyball, softball, dance team, and track through out my high school career. I enjoyed being very active in extra curricular activities in high school.

Besides being involved in school related activities, I also was employed at the Arcadia Park and Recreation department since my freshman year. My responsibilities included managing, maintaining, stocking, and ordering products for the concession stand. I also coached T-ball to 4 through 6 year old children. I am still currently employed there since it is a summer only job. I also am employed at Tri-County Memorial Hospital in Whitehall, WI. I am a Certified Nursing Assistant in the Nursing Home at this facility. I have been employed there for almost two years and thoroughly enjoy it. This job has assisted me in deciding to pursue a degree in Nursing.

My future goals are to graduate from the Queens University School of Nursing as a Registered Nurse. I want to work in a neo-natal care facility or in pediatric care. I absolutely love children. Becoming a nurse will allow me to fulfill my desire to help people and will compliment my caring personality.
