As a family nurse practitioner, I have a unique combination of both nursing and medicine skills. I chose this profession because it offers me a chance to serve others and also exercise professional independence. I can hold authoritative posts and make independent decisions. My profession assures me of authority, independence, and job satisfaction.

As a Family Nurse Practitioner, I plan to take care of my patients at the clinic and in other settings such as home, school, hospices, health centres and workplaces, depending on their wishes. Even though I plan to provide my services to the whole family, I will mainly practice in paediatrics because I love working with children. Children are innocent and defenceless and I hate seeing them in pain. It will be my pleasure to be the one to take their pain away and put a smile on their faces. Moreover, the children are our hope for the future and therefore, their health is of paramount importance. When children have a strong health foundation, they are likely to grow into healthy adults. I am a very compassionate, understanding and gentle person with great communication skills, and I am sure that will help me in dealing with my patients.
