The University of XXXX is my first choice among BSN-to-DNP Programs with a focus on Nurse Anesthesia. I am the best fit with your program; and see it as the optimal springboard upon which to make my maximum contribution to Nurse Anesthesia. During childbirth, I had no other choice but to undergo an emergency C-section. The CRNA got me through this experience in flying colors, subsequently serving prominently in my mind as a role model, especially in her sense of inclusiveness for all members of our community.
My CRNA in the hospital who I so look up to went far beyond just taking care of me, managing my pain and that of the other patients, she was also an exemplary as she was heavily involved in charitable events and health promotion. Like her, I am troubled deeply by childhood mortality and want to go out of my way to prevent this tragedy, as opportunities present themselves in the future.
I also went on to shadow another CRNA extensively and I also found this experience to be extremely inspiring and reaffirming of my goal to become a CRNA myself. I witnessed this Nurse Anesthetist compassionately administer anesthesia to a patient while walking them through the procedure providing the patient with vitally essential information while they are being prepped for surgery. During the procedure, the patient had blood pressure and heart rate spike and I observed as the Nurse Anesthetist controlled the situation with critical thinking and risk prediction. Like him, I want to become a highly respected leader in healthcare, and I can think of no better role to perform than that of the CRNA.
I very much appreciate the small size of classes in Nurse Anesthesia at the U of XXXX, with opportunities for one-on-one meetings with the professors and the close-knit environment that is developed among classmates in shared academic community. This aligns perfectly with my own learning styles and strategies. I especially love simulators, life-like simulations for training purposes I find especially exciting.
At the U of XXXX, one also gets an opportunity to interact with people who are world-renown experts in Nurse Anesthesia and related fields. I am looking forward to the way that Leadership forms an integral part of the curriculum in your program, tailored towards ensuring improved service delivery in health care facilities – always with a special eye on Nurse Anesthesia. I admire the way that students in the program are taught to embrace change as needed to promote public health and/or health care efficiency, in addition to focusing on the general improvement of the health care system.
The University of XXXX is the finest program around and I appreciate how this is manifest in the fact that students from the program have extremely high certification rates and easily find excellent employment opportunities. Yet, the passing rate is also high, hovering around 90% thus demonstrating the great dedication of the faculty and other departmental staff members. My current experience as a critical care nurse has enabled me to develop flexibility in critical thinking and an elevated level of competency in multicultural communication with valuable and current experiences in nursing to share with my colleagues and peers.
Becoming a CRNA will enable me to enhance my contribution to my community as well as the people with whom I have bonded professionally.
Thank you for considering my application to Nurse Anesthesia at the University of XXXX.
I have had many clients who have been hospitalized for a variety of reasons and have received anesthesia for surgery, childbirth, etc. This is an especially intimate and romantic way to become introduced to one's career, being on the receiving end of nurse anesthesia, falling in love with the calling as the recipient, the benefactor, the vulnerable one who is cared for is in a marvelous position to appreciate the range of factors that are critical to the support and attention of the CRNA.
