I am presently studing in my second year on a adult nursing course in Stafford. Nursing is a profession I have always wanted to pursue.  I have always worked within the mental health field and feel that these attributes would help towards the nursing profession. I believe that the role of a nurse can be very challenging and hectic at times, but rewarding and fulfilling. I am keen to pursue a career in which I am able to help people who require care and support, becoming a nurse would allow me to fulfill this ambition. Nursing is a career for dedicated, reliable and trusting people who are able to develop relationships with patients in an sensitive manner, even if its just holding a hand of a patient who is scared. I feel i have these skills and I genuinely want to make a difference to people’s lives, and to assist them and their families through the difficult times when they are at their most vulnerable.

I feel that in my previous roles I have gained many skills, and feel that I have excellent communication skills, and a good logical approach, which gives me the ability to act in an individual’s best interests and maintain confidentially. I show a sympathetic and patient manner and have a responsible attitude.

I am an effective worker, and with commitment and hard work have been able to make a positive difference within my work and the people I have worked with. I have the ability to motivate and increase people’s confidence, and to gain trust and respect, which I feel, would be a quality to a job. I believe that individuals need to be treated with an unconditional positive regard when addressing any areas of difficulty they may have and I am committed in adopting this approach.


I feel the skills I have gained through practice, experience and training are transferable and have provided me a good sound base for working within this setting. With my personal attributes and previous work experience. I feel I have all the necessary skills to work effectively as part of a team and would value the opportunity to do so.
