Growing up I was always demanded the question “what do you want to be when you grow up?” I never really knew the answer. My reply would always be something related to Art since I am a good drawer. Over time my interests changed, now Art only seems to be a hobby to me. All I want is to be seen as “successful” in life. I feel as if having a career anywhere in the Arts wont help me portrait myself as such. The response to what I wanted to be came not too long ago. Seeing both of my parents growing older has made me realize that soon they are going to need someone who is able to take care of them. As a Registered Nurse I accomplish just that.
I always had known that I would spend my time helping out others in one way or another. When I help others it gives me some sort of satisfaction. Don’t know how to describe it, it’s just one of those “feel good” feelings. Aside from the benefit of me being able to look out after my parents I could also help others. I think there is nothing better in the world than spending time helping others, knowing you are doing the right thing. Of course to become a Registered Nurse one will have to reach out for higher education.

Mrs.Bigelow shared with me her opinion “ You should consider Wayne State since they have a great program in the path you want to take.”
Getting into Wayne State is average for a low cost college. MichiganCollgeGuide.com states that the requirements for admission are official highschool transcripts along with ACT/SAT scores. Also according to the same source, the average GPA for admissions is a 3.27. I have calculated my GPA before and it rounds up to about a 2.5. Also letters of recommendation are recommended. There is a different admission progress for the nursing program. Students may be admitted to the college but admission to the program is not guaranteed.
According to the FAQ on the Wayne State College of Nursing “admission into the program is highly competitive.” The source also says “Admission is based on a combination of factors.” so one thing such as the GPA isn’t enough. There is training that has to be done. The program is called BSN traditional, which stands for Bachelor’s of Science of Nursing. When asked “So, I'll be a nurse at the end of the program?” the response was “You will have a Bachelor's Degree in Nursing and will...
