APPLICATION FOR ADMISSION College of Nursing - ESSAY Nursing is a very challenging career that allows you the opportunity to promote and maintain the health and well-being of our community. I enjoy being in a profession that helps people. While there are many different occupations that would allow me to help people, I feel that nursing is the one that I would be able to share my gift of caring for others most. Nursing would allow me to care for the "whole" of people- their physical needs as well as their mental and spiritual needs. Every human being does not have what it takes to provide such care, but I've been blessed with the ability to do so. This is the main reason I have decided to become a nurse. There are also endless opportunities, flexibility, rewards, and professional status associated with nursing. As a volunteer of the oncology unit at a local hospital, I have an opportunity to get a closer look at some of the many facets of nursing. I have learned that nurses are extremely important and play a major role in the medical field. I enjoy caring for the patients, and volunteering at the hospital is the best thing that I have ever done. After graduating from College of Nursing, I plan to work as a registered nurse and continue my education to become a nurse practitioner. As a nurse, I feel that I can contribute to improving our society and the nursing profession by sharing my knowledge, wisdom, skills, and gift of caring with others. Although I believe that I could work well in any nurse setting, I've been torn between working with the elderly and children because I get a special joy out of helping those who are not able to help themselves. I decided on working in pediatrics because...

When I was a little girl growing up, I always wanted to be independent. I wanted to do things by myself. I never wanted anybody to help me in anything that I would do. This tendency of mine has always been in my head until now. This is the reason why I decided to take up medical assisting and hopefully in the future will make me live independently, earning my own money as I will continue to pursue a nursing course. My real goal in life is to become a nurse and I thought by being a medical assistant first will help me go to college. I can see myself treating patients, taking care of seniors and seeing them get better. I know this is what I really want to be. I just love to be with people this way. Another reason why I want to be a nurse is that nurses will always be in demand as partners of doctors in the hospital. Hospitals will never cease to be there because no matter how people take care of themselves, illnesses will always be there if we are not careful enough. With the kind of job that nurses do, they also get better pay and who wouldn't strive to earn more money. We need more and more money. Needs and wants of people will never stop as long as we are alive. Furthermore, hospital workers have a lot of benefits compared to other professionals. They and their families are fully covered with health insurance and other medical benefits. They also have opportunities for advancement in education if they choose to because some hospitals send their employees to college for free as long as they continue to serve in that hospital for the rest of their lives.

Analytic Geometry Analytic geometry was brought fourth by the famous French mathematician Rene' Descartes in 1637. Descartes did not start his studying and working with geometry until after he had retired out of the army and settled down. If not for Descartes great discovery then Sir Isaac Newton might not have ever invented the concept of calculus. Descartes concept let to calculus and Newton and G.W. Leibniz would not be know as well as they are today if it were not for the famous mathematician Rene' Descartes. Analytic geometry is a, "branch of geometry in which points are represented with respect to a coordinate system, such as Cartesian coordinates, and in which the approach to geometric problems is primarily algebraic." (Analytic Geometry) Analytic geometry is used to find distances, slopes, midpoints, and many many other things using special equations and formulas to determine what a person is looking for. Analytic geometry concentrates very much on algebra, generally, it is taught to students in algebra classes and becomes very helpful when being used in geometry. It is not very often when geometry is taught not using the algebra to solve the problems, unless proving statements, analytic geometry is used most often when speaking of geometry, it is the guidelines of geometry. It is a set way to find out answers to problems. There are many simple formulas to analytic geometry, but some of them get very complex and difficult. Analytic geometry is not only used in math, it is very common to see it being used in any kind of science, logic, and any other mathematical subjects. There are formulas in this form of mathematics in which the volume of a gas is measured, and other formulas along those lines (Encyclopedia.com). Some formulas and equations of analytic geometry are: The midpoint formula- (change in...

Since the event of the terrorist attacks in New York on September 11, 2001, the issue of terrorism has received a considerable amount of media attention. The recent bombings of Bali and Jakarta caused this media focus to be further intensified allowing much discussion and debate between commentators such as Andrew Bolt, presenting their view on possible motives for such terrorist attacks. 'The Blast of Truth', appearing in The Herald Sun on Thursday 7th August, 2003, advocates his blatant opinion on this issue with a contention that terrorism is not a war against "Australia or wicked America", but rather against freedom. Bolt employs various persuasive techniques with the intention to sway the reader whilst clearly revealing his prominent stance on the fight for freedom as he puts it. Throughout the article, the author adopts the use of colloquial language and begins his discussion with a sarcastic tone. This language is designed to generate a particular level of interest and creates an informal atmosphere. As the discussion progresses, Bolt reveals a much more authoritative and arrogant tone as he recounts his experience visiting Bali himself. With the mention of this background, he instils a sense of credibility into his arguments. Without this, the reader would not have an adequate amount of information, due to the lack of use of statistics, expert opinion or facts. One of the most apparent persuasive devices Bolt exercised in the article was his use of emotive terms. On several occasions, it is evident that strong words were deliberately used in order to evoke strong emotional responses from the reader. "…as pieces of dead Indonesians are picked off the pavement…" The disturbing and graphic words the author uses to portray his point of view enables the audience to paint a vivid picture of the scene he envisions in their minds. The...

Analytical Essay on 'Race Relations' In the poem, 'Race Relations' by Jean Burgess the main theme is the discrimination against the little black girl, we know this because the two little girls were playing together in their own little world doing no harm until the white girls' mother started cursing her daughter for interacting with a black girl even though they were doing nothing wrong This was conveyed to us because before the mother realised her daughter was playing with a black girl she was calmer. A main idea portrayed in this poem is the parents' influence on the little girl, as she did not see anything wrong with playing with the black girl and would not have seen anything wrong with it if her mother had not yelled at her for doing it. We know this as the Jean Burgess writes about the little white girl leaving as 'Dragging her feet Mary moved slowly, moved towards her mother' so we realise Mary doesn't want to leave because she is dragging her feet and also being forced to leave by her mother. Another main idea is the whites showing prejudice towards the little black girl as she has not shown an act in which the white parents could form this prejudice against her. Evidence of this prejudice against the black girl is 'How he'll scold you, and serve you right, who have no proper pride.' This shows us that the mother is marginalizing the little black girl as she has judged her by thinking she has no right to play with her daughter. The children were very happy playing together, we know this because when they were playing together they did not notice anything too busy building their sandcastles evidence of this is the whole first and second paragraphs, 'They played behind the garden wall,...

Analytical Essay In the poem "Ode on a Grecian Urn" by John Keats, the speaker struggles with the trials and tribulations of life compared to immortality. He then speaks to the Grecian Urn in attempt to engage with the static immobility of the sculpture. He questions the urn, but gets no response from it. The speaker ultimately has to decide the answers to his own questions, leaving the poem with a higher level of understanding about life. This was a poem from the Romantic Period and that made it easier to take a more "imaginative" standpoint, because during this period the authors focused on feelings, the imagination, and the value of what is supposed to be done to what can be done. It is important to look at the feelings of this particular poem, and it deals with the mysterious works of life in general, and reality versus a so-called "dream world." The author creates this dream world through the speaker's own imagination. The theme of this poem portrays Keats's attempt to connect with the stand still time of sculpture, the Grecian urn. It has been passed down through countless centuries to the time of the speaker's viewing, and this urn exists outside of time in the human sense—it does not age, or die, and it can grasp no such concepts. During the speaker's meditation, this creates an Smith 2 intriguing paradox for the human figures carved into the side of the urn. They are free from time, but are simultaneously frozen in time. This is illustrated by the lines "Fair youth, beneath the trees, thou canst not leave Thy song, nor ever can the trees be bare" (v. 15 &16). The people on the urn do not have to confront aging and death, but they cannot experience anything because they are frozen. Even...

Tom Sawyer- An Analytical Essay There is much debate these days on whether the boyhood masterpiece, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, should be allowed in libraries, and whether it is appropriate for modern audiences to read. Although the language that Twain uses in his novel is politically incorrect, this book is still acceptable for modern audiences to read, and this is largely because if Mark Twain did not use this language, the portrayal of late nineteenth century rural life would not have been as vivid and true as it is. In this book, racial slurs, such as nigger, and Injun', are used quite often, and the people who use the word are very nonchalant about it. Also, many people find it unacceptable for modern audiences to read this book because it contains objectionable material, such as smoking, beatings, and running away. For example, when Tom covers for Becky when she rips the schoolmasters anatomy book, Tom receives many "floggings." Inspired by the splendor of his own act, he took without an outcry the most merciless flaying that even Mr. Dobbins had ever administered…1 This quote makes the situation seem like it is an admirable thing to be beaten, and that it is all right for the schoolmaster to beat Thomas Sawyer. We must remember that Mark Twain's genre was regionalism. When he wrote, he took extreme caution to stay true to the area, culture, customs, and dialect, including vocabulary, and ideas on how children should be raised. Instead, this quote is a good learning topic for children. It is a good example of how schooling has changed, and how children were punished in the nineteenth century. Also, it provides a good comparison for audiences to use to compare and contrast on how the way children are punished in the classroom and out has developed over...

By the end of 1914 the war entered a stalemate. Both sides became mired in two main, stationary fronts—the western front, primarily in northeastern France, and the eastern front, mainly in western Russia. At the fronts, the troops fought each other from numerous parallel lines of interconnected trenches. Each side laid siege to the other's system of trenches and endeavored to break through their lines. The frustration between the world powers is reflected in Junger's personal account of the war. The Storm of Steel provides a prolific account of a soldier's life. This account gives the feeling of detachment. Something needed to survive the war experience. "It has always been my ideal in war to eliminate all feelings…" Throughout the novel Junger describes the scenery. His emotions and psychological state can be determined through the method of description. Feelings and emotions are left out. One time in the novel he discusses a sensation that stayed with him throughout the war. "It was a weird sensation to look into those dead and questioning eyes. It gave me a shudder that all through the war I never quite lost." The dead and questioning eyes seem to mirror the overall feeling of those young men participating in the war. All seemed to question what they were seeing. The horrors and atrocities appeared to be superhuman. The questions led to the feeling of being dead. Ernst never glorified war. He treated it with an inhuman fashion. At times I felt detached from the book and the experience. Then I realized that the detachment I was feeling was the detachment the soldiers were feeling. Junger stated that he "made up his mind to omit all comments from this book…" This shows that he made up his mind to omit all emotion from the war. One would...

Deemed as one of Shakespeare's most tragic plays, 'MacBeth' ventures deep within the dark side of human nature. What makes Shakespeare's plays successful is that the themes behind them are still relevant in today's society. Two directors, Polanski and Freestone, have tried to recapture the story of MacBeth through the use of film. A comparison between the two separate versions can be found in scenes such the 'killing of King Duncan' scene. While Polanski has decided to truly reflect human nature, Freestone wanted to recapture the general storyline without too much manipulation of the text, but creative visuals. This comparison reflects the director's interpretation of the play, and their view behind the theme of the play. A more political approach was used in Polanski's version of the play. This is highlighted by King Duncan's crown, which he wore in his sleep. When MacBeth first struck Duncan, a cut away of the crown falling to the ground was used. Not until the death of Duncan did the crown stop spinning. This symbolises the political decline of King Duncan, and the royal beginning for MacBeth. The impression of MacBeth's motives in Polanski's version is that he was only killing Duncan for Political reasons. Polanski has deliberately intended this to add an 'only business' attitude to the scene, maintaining realism and human nature. Freestone intentions to recreate the general storyline were clear as he uses religion as opposed to politics. As religion was a big part of society back then, he shows Lady MacBeth wearing a cross, and more importantly, gives King Duncan a God like appearance. It is extremely obvious that Polanski's film contains more gore than freestones film. When Polanski's MacBeth is striking Duncan with the dagger, the penetration of the dagger into Duncan's body is not discrete. More bloody violence is further...
