Why I chose to become a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner or Why I would make a good one?
My Situation: Hello writer, so I’m applying to graduate school and I need a “Personal Statement” written. The program is a “Nursing” field, it would help if you’re familiar with nursing/medicine. “Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner” (Psych NP) is the graduate program I seek to apply to. Please do some research on this profession to have some insight while writing this essay. I’d like it to be as personable and believable as possible. It would help to draft a nursing scenario that inspires me to become a Psych NP maybe? I don’t have experience in Psychiatric care. I work with the general med surgical patients and telemetry/cardiac patients, but I want it to show that my experience is able to crossover and can be useful to our psych population. I desire to work outpatient psychiatry. I also want to touch a bit on mental health in America, maybe stigma, the lack of resources, etc. some current issue that I’d like to help tackle out there in the psych world. I have also had personal struggles and sought out therapy, maybe we could touch on that as well. I want to help minorities who battle with mental health issues as well, reach communities where mental health services are really lacking….
