MSN Nurse Midwife, Doula,

After completing my pre-med degree in Biology, I took time out to have a family and spend as much time as possible with my children during their most formative years. I also began a home-based service providing birth and postpartum support to clients in the Bay Area. As a doula, I spent countless hours learning all that I could about childbirth, fetal development, optimal nutrition and infant care. Through my extensive immersion in the subject of birthing woman, I have developed a number of skills that will help me to excel as a nurse, creative, dynamic nurture and support, empowering and inspiring my patients them to speak up and participate actively in the process. Since I think that it is of critical importance for health care professionals to stay active in professional organizations, I joined a group of doulas with the aim of solidarity networking so as to coordinate our ability to provide free services to socio-economically marginalized or at risk women, particularly African American teens. I also volunteered as a doula at Kaiser Hospital, gaining critically important exposure to hospital settings.

Through my work as a doula, I have had the privilege of working along with many multidisciplinary medical teams, and I have especially enjoyed my collaboration with the nurses. I see nurses as the backbone of the hospital, treating, monitoring, providing emotional support, educating and keeping patients and their families informed. I have an immense amount of respect, even awe, for nurses. I crave the demanding work and long hours and look forward to a full engagement with the large variety and range of nursing practice.

As a homeopathic midwife, I am just as excited about nursing in the home as I am the practice of obstetrics in the hospital; nursing midwifery, for me, brings together the best of both worlds. While nurse midwives, like obstetricians, are able to provide clinical care, deliver babies and provide well woman care, they are also able to provide the emotional care and time that traditional midwives provide. Moreover, I am choosing nurse midwifery because I am committed to helping families in getting a good start, a combination of my holistic view of pregnancy as a natural life event that normally requires little intervention, but also adds the safety of obstetrician supervision, experienced personnel and equipment necessary to remedy foreseen and unforeseen complications.

Reasons for seeking advanced specialty preparation as part of a nursing program. As a doula, I have assisted many women during childbirth and experienced incredibly satisfying moments when after twelve hours of labor and three hours of pushing, to be turned to by the birth mother and be told, I couldn't have done this without you, thank you. I felt it was my privilege to be a witness to nature's greatest miracle, and a client's intimate moment. More importantly, while I have given my time, energy, and love of service, I have been left wanting to give that much more, and on a greater scale. Becoming a nurse midwife through the Masters entry program in nursing at XXX can help bring my goals, indeed my dreams to reality. To establish a set of clinical skills, and develop a level of autonomy for decision-making based on expertise, evidence and direct patient exposure will enable me to serve so many more patients, and of equal importance, be a role model for my children, that anything is possible through hard work, dedication and keeping a constant eye on our dreams.

XXX's nursing program offers the amazing opportunity of earning RN certification after just the first year. In truth, XXX is my sole choice for academic development for deeply personal reasons. As refuges, we received medical care at XXX's General Hospital. It is only fitting that I further my education through the same program that showed us such incredible compassion when we needed help the most. Having assisted with two births at XXX, I have been impressed by the knowledgeable and welcoming nurses, midwives and obstetricians. No other program could offer me the same progressive, all-encompassing education possible, in a city that I count among the world's finest. I grew up here, and want to complete my training and serve the people of San Francisco.

My academic, personal and professional experiences have prepared me for the opportunity and challenge of the graduate nursing program. I bring with me a solid academic foundation, and direct birth mother exposure in home and medical teams in hospital settings. More than this, though, I bring my humility, and ability to work with diverse clients and co-workers. Serving my clients as well as people in my community through volunteerism, I have gained a deep appreciation for the unique needs of at-risk populations, what it means to be without health insurance and one thing resonates throughout, across all cultures, languages and socioeconomics, and that is the health of our children.

Post-graduation, my goals are quite simple: to be an outstanding nurse and excellent healthcare provider, developing my exposure for at least a year as an RN after certification. Later, I am intent upon becoming an advanced-practice nurse. In the meantime, I am continuing to develop my grasp of the Spanish language, so I can help serve our ever-growing Latino population.

No other field ever has nor ever could bring me the same level of personal, professional and spiritual satisfaction. I am excited, and honored to be considered for the XXX graduate nursing program. Thank you for your time and consideration.
