A FUTURE NURSE
My name is Ifeanyi Nancy Maduegbuna. I am from Nigeria, and I have been in
Houston for 3 years. I am a certified nursing assistant working with Brookdale senior living, I am
coming from a well cultured home and was trained to love and care for everyone around me.
Growing up in a home where almost everybody is part of the medical field has always edged me
to be like them. I have always wished and pray to wear the white jacket (being a Nurse). As I
grow, my dream grew bigger day by day. As we all know, America has one of the best education
systems when it comes to healthcare, so I had always wished and dreamt for this opportunity to
study here in the United States. Although am aware of the fact that this particular type of job
has high demands; I still want to be a Nurse because helping people and putting smiles on
people’s faces is really what makes me happy. I have this passion of helping people in one way
or the other. I remember some years back when my mom was alive and was very ill, she
couldn’t stop crying because of the severe cancer pains. I Witnessed the pain and wasn’t able to
help her, still very fresh in my memory. I prayed and wished I had a means to help but all ended
in vain. It was from her dead that I promised myself to impact lives and being of help to others.
Being a nurse will give me the opportunity to realize all my goals.
According to occupational outlook handbook, research shows that, the median annual
wage for nurse anesthetists, nurse mid wives and nurse practitioners was 110,930 dollars per
year (2019) and $53.33 per hour (2019).
The overall employment of nurse anesthetists, nurse
midwives and nurse practitioners in projected growth is 31 percent from 2016-2026, much
faster than average for all occupations. Growth will occur primarily because of an increased
emphasis on preventive care and demand for health care services from an aging population.
