Nursing studies personal statement
I am finding difficult to write personal satement to apply for nursing course
Hay, you haven't given me much information to go on - maybe if you tell me abit more about where you're stuck I can give you a hand. In the meantime here are a few resources to go on. I can't find any example personal statments but should be able to give you a couple of general tips if you tell me a bit more about the problems you're having.

You could also try asking questions at Medschoolguide or Nursing times.

I found this nursing personal statement with some useful general info at

Quote:Nursing is such a diverse, challenging and worthwhile career that I really feel it is the right course for me. It is a vocation for people who are practical, conscientious, reliable and who find it easy quickly to establish good, trusting relationships with new people. I have these skills and a genuine desire to help people when they need it most. The role of the nurse is changing in the NHS, with more opportunities for nurses to take greater responsibility for patient care and to become specialists in areas such as intensive care, cancer treatment and other specialties. In studying for a degree in nursing I hope that I will be able to make the most of these opportunities as my career develops. The greater use of Information Technology as the National Programme for IT is implemented in the NHS will have a great impact on the way that patient information is recorded and used by nurses. It will be important that nurses in the NHS are confident in the use of IT and I believe that my A level in Information Technology will help me in this area.

When I was first considering nursing as a career I thought that I would prefer paediatric nursing and arranged for work experience of paediatrics in two hospitals. My first week of work experience took place at St Mary’s hospital in Paddington, where I particularly enjoyed my time in the paediatric A and E department. I spent my second week at Leicester Royal Infirmary where I helped on various paediatric wards and in outpatient clinics. My work experience helped me to decide that nursing is for me because I was able to see how doctors and nurses work together as a team and what a huge contribution the nurse makes, not only to the care of the patient but also to the patient’s family. I have had recent experience of adult nursing when my father became seriously ill earlier this year and spent four months in hospital. The nursing staff helped me and my family through this time with care and professionalism and I would like to do the same for other people. I have now decided to focus on adult nursing because I feel that there may be wider opportunities for me in this area of nursing and because it is more distressing when young children are ill.

At school I achieved the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze award, by helping with Beavers for six months, taking a photography course and developing my sailing skills. In my spare time I continue to enjoy sailing and I have achieved RYA certificates 1 and 2 and the Seamanship qualification in sailing. I like to go snowboarding once a year with friends and family. I enjoy doing voluntary work within my church, leading the junior choir, and helping at Sunday school, the holiday club and the crèche.

I have had a number of part time and full time jobs. As a Saturday girl I ran the Photo Lab in my local ** store for nearly two years, and was a door hostess at ** for over six months. This summer I spent seven weeks away from home working for the holiday company ** as a Group Leader, responsible for young children, working in a team and communicating effectively with other members of staff, parents and children.

At the moment I am taking a gap year so that I can travel and enjoy new experiences before settling down and starting university. I am working full time at ** as a sales assistant, and in the evenings I also work in a pub, to save money so that I can visit Africa, Australia, New Zealand and America.

I have chosen nursing as a career because I know from personal experience how important it is that patients receive good care when they are at their most vulnerable. I want to feel that I have helped someone to regain their health, independence and dignity – whether it is after cancer treatment or a broken bone. I hope that my degree in nursing will be the beginning of a lifelong career that will really make a difference.

Hoped you like the quartz
This is my personal statement... hope it is useful!!

Nursing is a very challenging and demanding career, however I feel the rewards would be great and that I am ready to embark on this career. I am eager to pursue a career in which I am able to help and care for people, becoming a nurse would allow me to fulfil this ambition. Nursing is a career for dedicated, reliable, trusting people who are able to develop relationships with patients quickly. I have these skills and genuinely want to make a difference topeople, to assist them and their families through difficult times when they are at their most vulnerable. The role of nursing is changing as nurses are far more involved in the welfare of patients and this is placing more responsibility on nurses. I am confident of embracing this challenge and to take advantage of these changes and opportunities and use them to further my career.

At school I am involved in the Duke of Edinburgh scheme and have completed bronze and silver levels. Aspects of the Duke of Edinburgh involved working as part of a group, this has helped me become an effective team player which I believe will be useful in the nursing environment as it will be necessary to use this strength to communicate successfully with other health professionals to determine what level of care is best for a patient. I am also involved in the music department as part of two choirs and a guitar group. I perform learning support once a
week with a girl with additional support needs. This involves undertaking activities with her and supporting her to communicate difficulties when she is finding things challenging. This is very rewarding as I can see what a difference it makes for her to have someone who is willing
to listen, and has made me realise how important this skill is when caring for people. Another activity I find rewarding is performing in-class support with a second year science class.

I am a young leader at Rainbows and Guides and this is very valuable to me as I interact with the girls and participate in activities with them. It has greatly increased my confidence as I often have to talk to the girls in a group setting and this has developed my interpersonal skills. I am also involved in the peer education scheme '4' which involves going to different Guiding units and raising awareness of issues through activities and games. This has been incredibly beneficial for my confidence and my planning and organisational skills. These skills have been developed as I have to co-ordinate the sessions as well as talking to a group of people that I am not familiar with. As one of only two in4mers in *** this role is very demanding.

I have been employed as a waitress for three years in the local hotel. This has been excellent for my interpersonal skills as it involves talking to people I am not familiar with. A skill that will be transferable to nursing. I have also undertaken work experience, through school,
at *** Day Care Centre. This gave me a useful insight into the caring profession and has increased my motivation to work within it. I organised my own work experience at the *** Hospital and this gave me an idea of what working in a hospital setting will be like. Both experiences served to fuel my desire to gain entry to the nursing profession. I also plan to work as a nursing auxiliary through the nurse bank next summer.

In the future I may wish to pursue a career in Paediatric nursing and I feel that an adult nursing degree will be the first step in giving me this opportunity. I am deeply passionate about nursing and I am already looking forward to a long and fulfilling career in this field.

I am the first person in my family to pursue further education.
Nursing is a profession I have always looked upon with respect. I believe that the role of a nurse can be very challenging and hectic at times, as well as rewarding and fulfilling. In my opinion a person who is willing to become a nurse needs to have very good interpersonal skills, be a good listener, empathetic, eager to learn and strive to improve themselves..
