you. Let’s get into the training. So, first and foremost, what is a nursing personal statement?
We need to understand what one is before we can write one. A nursing personal statement
is a written document that all people applying for a nursing study course must submit. When
you create your own, other people will be creating one too. And we have to make sure
that yours STANDS OUT from everybody else’s. By the end of this tutorial, you’ll be able
to create the perfect nursing personal statement. And on that basis, what should you include
in a nurse personal statement to make it stand out from everybody else’s? Well, take a note
of this. These are the things that you should include in a nurse personal statement. #1
– you should tell them why you want to become a nurse. Start off your personal statement
by saying… “I want to become a nurse because…” #2 – you then tell them what has attracted
you to nursing. Think about the reasons why you want to get into nursing. Has anything
attracted you before? Have you conducted any kind of work experience previously, or have
you had any experience of caring for people perhaps? #3 – tell them the qualities that
you have already that are relevant to the role. Maybe you are a good communicator. Maybe
you are a patient person; somebody who can show empathy when needed. The list goes on.
These are all good qualities that you might have that will ring in a positive manner with
the assessors when they are reading your personal statement. #4 – show the assessors your understanding
of the role of the nurse and what will be expected of you, once you qualify. My advice
is to make reference to the core values of nursing and include the six C’s of nursing.
I will tell you what those are, if you don’t know, during this training tutorial. #5 – address
the challenges of the nursing course you are applying to study. Demonstrate to the assessors
that you fully appreciate how much work will need to go in to this study course, and how
you are prepared for that. Because they only want to take on people who are fully committed
and who are going to finish the course and gain the highest scores possible. #6 – you
should end your nursing personal statement with a powerful ending paragraph that demonstrates
why they should accept you. And I’ll tell you exactly what to write! So these 6 things
that you need to include within your nursing personal statement, I’m going to go through
them right now. This is a full nursing personal statement example. I’m going to put each element
at the top of the screen there, and then the exact text that I would write that covers
all of these six different areas. Here we go. I want to become a nurse because I have
a genuine and honest passion to not only care for people, but to also help to educate them
to lead healthier lives and make better lifestyle choices. With the role of a nurse, there comes
a huge amount of responsibility, and I believe the qualities I possess will eventually make
me a highly proficient and competent member of the nursing team, once I have successfully
completed my studies. What attracted you to nursing? I was initially attracted to nursing
during a stint of work experience at a local care home. During this time, I got to see
first-hand the exceptional work the care workers and nursing staff undertook and also the dedication
they showed within the role. Coupled with the qualities I feel I already possess, I
knew at that stage I wanted to become a nurse and so I started to explore the different
educational courses available. During my work experience at the care home, I watched, listened,
observed and participated in a number of patient needs’ assessments, and this was an invaluable
insight into the necessary patience, communication skills and commitment to quality of care that
is required as a professional nurse. The course I am applying for today via this personal
statement is clearly one that will put me in a great position to deliver the core values
of nursing. Number three, the qualities you possess that are relevant to the role. The
qualities I have that I feel will help me to study effectively and also become a competent
nurse, include patience and empathy, an ability to follow rules and procedures, the desire
to continually improve whilst acting in a professional manner, and also the ability
to maintain competence in everything I do. I am also a strong communicator, I will be
totally dedicated to my studies, and I can also plan my work properly to make sure I
meet all deadlines and submission dates throughout the duration of this nursing course. Number
four, your understanding of the role of a nurse and what will be expected of you? I
fully understand and appreciate the responsibility I will have as a nurse, and on that basis,
I appreciate why it is important you only accept students onto this nursing course who
are totally committed to their studies, and to the nursing profession overall. Throughout
my life to date, I have always acted with honesty and integrity and I can be relied
upon to maintain the highest standards achievable at all times, whilst also demonstrating confidentiality
when needed. I have studied the role of a nurse in detail, including the core values
and the 6 Cs, and I feel can uphold and maintain the necessary requirements of the role. Number
five, address the challenges of the nursing course you are applying to study. Having studied
the nursing course curriculum in detail, I understand I will need to dedicate a large
amount of time to not only completing all of the relevant modules, but to also pass
them with the highest grades achievable. In the past, whenever I have undertaken studies,
I utilize a plan of action that ensures I allocate the correct amount of time to research,
writing and also learning the relevant aspects of the course I am undertaking. I also understand
that, to become a competent and professional nurse, the hard work starts on this course
and I am totally committed to putting the work and commitment necessary to succeed.
Number six, end with a powerful statement that demonstrates why they should accept your
application. There are many ambitious and dedicated people who apply for nursing courses.
However, I feel the effort and the commitment I will put into my studies, and my role as
a nurse once I am qualified, make me a worthy contender for a place on this course. I understand
the responsibility that comes with the role of a nurse, and I will always uphold the highest
standards of professionalism, competence and commitment to quality of care if I am offered
the opportunity to study on this course. Thank you for considering my application. So, that
is a powerful, powerful nursing personal statement that covers all six core areas that I feel
you should include within your personal statement! The only thing that you would need to change
is obviously the relevant work experience that you have. I made reference there to working
in a care home and how I watched, listened and observed what the care workers and nursing
staff were doing. Think about any relevant work experience you may have that you could
include within your own personal statement. I made reference to the six C’s of nursing
within my application. These are basically the core values of all nursing staff and they
are being somebody who is CARING and can show empathy in patients when needed. Having COMPETENCE,
which means that you are able to carry out your role in line with the relevant procedures,
the guidelines and the operational practices that are needed. So you’re professional all
times. You demonstrate a level of COMMITMENT to the role. You are always there when needed
and you are totally committed; committed to upholding the necessary standards of being
a nurse. You can COMMUNICATE properly. You show COURAGE when needed and you are also
COMPASSIONATE. So, those are the 6 C’s. I would learn those, study them and you might
decide to include them within your own nursing personal statement. I mentioned at the start
that I was going to give you five great things to write in any nursing personal statement.
Here they are. I have studied the core values required to become a competent professional
nurse and I feel the qualities I have will enable me to excel within the role. “I have
studied the core values required to become a competent and professional nurse and I feel
the qualities I have will enable me to excel within the role.” “Prior to applying for
this nursing course, I considered carefully the level of responsibility that comes with
the role.” “To be successful on this nursing course, I understand I will need to dedicate
a large amount of time to reading, researching and preparing effectively for the accompanying
examinations. It is my aim to become a professional nurse, and my journey starts right here on
this nursing course.” “I am a caring, compassionate and committed person who will
always strive to continually improve as a nurse, once I am fully qualified following
the successful completion of this nursing course.” “If I am successful in my application
to enroll onto this nursing course, I will study hard, dedicate the necessary time to
be successful, and always act in a manner that is commensurate with the required standards
of nursing.” There are five things that you could include within your personal statement.
Now, it’s important to say that any of this information that I’ve given you, you should
only use it if it is applicable to your own standards, and the qualities and experience
that you possess… you can’t just put this information down unless it is a MATCH for
what you believe in. And as I say, the necessary qualities and experience that you have gained
in your life so far. I hope you’ve enjoyed that. If you would like more help, please
