  • much appreciate it if you gave the video a LIKE, because that tells me you enjoy the

  • content and I will therefore create more for 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

  • needsassessments, 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 possessyou 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 click the link in the top right hand corner

  • of the video. Itll take you through to my website, PassMyInterview.com, and you can

  • download my nursing interview guide. That has loads of different questions and answers

  • within that guide. It is in PDF format. And you might get some great ideas that you could

  • use within that guide for putting in your personal statement. And let's face it, once

  • you are qualified as a nurse, you will have to pass many interviews for all the jobs that

  • you apply for. So, you will want to get a copy of that guide right now if you can do

  • it. I hope you enjoyed that. Please don't forget to SUBSCRIBE and please do click the

  • LIKE button, because that shows me that you enjoy the content and I'll create more for

  • you! If you have any questions, put them in the comments section below and I'll be more
