Personal Statement


Every nursing application requirements the submission of a personal statement.


Your personal statement will be submitted on the application. The statement should be in point form. Applicants often find it helpful to break the personal statement into categories (a section for volunteering, a section for hobbies/interests, etc...) and provide a short explanation of each activity listed. 

In your personal statement, you can write about any of the following:

  • Volunteer work
  • Awards
  • Extracurricular activities
  • Clubs/groups that you are involved with
  • Skills, qualities you have that are applicable to nursing
  • Interersts and hobbies
  • Why do you want to become a nurse?
  • Someone who inspired you to become a nurse
  • Anything you think we should know that would strengthen your application
