As a qualified Registered Nurse, I have had the opportunity to work with various patient
groups and medical professionals, who have challenged me to do more in my service to society. I
have spent much time educating my clients and their families on what they can do to live long,
healthy, and productive lives despite their medical condition. I have also had the honor to
provide moral support to my clients whenever they needed it and ensure that their loved ones

hope that learning and internalizing these skills will give me the chance to be a primary care
provider for most of the families in the community. I also hope that with these new advanced
skills, I will get the opportunity to open a private practice where I can deliver quality care
