” Several
people told me that I don’t have Canadian secondary education to pursue a nursing
degree in Canada”. The memory of my first day in Canada as a new immigrant in June
2009 can never be far from my mind. Many newcomers to Canada find themselves
facing two choices: either to get a survival job or to go back to school. I was
one of them who decided to go back to school and pursue my dreams. My strong
motivation and continuous family support helped me overcome the hardships of
being a new comer to Canada. In 2010, I enrolled in Mohawk College in applied
communication course to upgrade my English proficiency. After successful
completion of the program, I got enrolled in practical nursing program that gave
me a platform to bridge and to complete my Bachelor of Science in nursing. My
experience so far matured me as a learner and boosted my confidence immensely
and inspired me to take next step to pursue Master of Nursing – NP program with
clinical focus in adult stream offered at the University of Toronto for
September 2018 intake.

          The Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of
Nursing’s has a proven reputation for providing students with strong education
and training required for advance practice nurses who are competent, caring,
and can meet the demands of healthcare. I strongly believe that my previous academic
performance and practical experience has made very strong foundation from where
I would like to build and demonstrate greater depth and breadth of knowledge, a
greater synthesis of data, increased complexity of skills and interventions,
and significant role autonomy.

      I started my professional career at
Sunnybrook Health Sciences center as a registered nurse on a full time basis
since May 2016. I am currently a member of acute care nursing resource team
(ACNRT) and serve three main areas including General internal medicine program,
Palliative/ Surgical oncology program and TECC program (Trauma, emergency and
critical care). My experience as an ACNRT member afforded me to gain proficiency
in variety of units with multiple specialties promoting excellent patient care
while also enabled me to demonstrate exceptional leadership, communication,
problem-solving and conflict resolution skills.

nursing journey so far has shaped me into a more responsible, caring, accountable,
and mature individual. I enjoy my current role as a registered nurse, but
recognize my yearning for more. As healthcare is shifting, nurses must prepare
for changes in health care delivery. I strongly believe that if nurses really
want to transform their health care system, one way to do this is to increase
their level of education and knowledge. An advanced degree will expand my
vision, increase my overall understanding of the science of nursing and ability
to access and use evidence-based practice to improve the health of our population.
Advanced nursing will put me at a more advantageous position to excel my
leadership skills to bridge the gap between bedside care and administrative
roles where patients would be the direct recipients of effective decision

           Admission to the MN NP-Adult stream
program will allow me to undertake my essential career goals. One of my
foremost goal is to commit myself in life long learning and broaden my scope of
practice as a nurse practitioner emphasizing health promotion, harm reduction, chronic
disease prevention and management in acute and primary care settings. Given the
opportunity with NP adult stream, I would be able to see a broader global
picture of my patient needs in community as well as during their periods of
acute illnesses. As a nurse practitioner, I want to grow my professional
latitude to diagnose, prescribe and manage their overall health by providing
full range of health care. Obtaining my Master’s degree from University of
Toronto will allow me to advance my career and expand my effectiveness as a
prosperous health care provider. My long-term goal would be to achieve a
doctorate degree and contribute to the profession through research and inform
practice with a focus on national, global system level change and public
policy. Attending University of Toronto for my Masters program in Adult stream will
allow me to reach my next step of professional development plan. The hybrid
online format and in-class sessions for MSN-NP program very well aligns with my
learning style and offers me flexibility to work part time during my graduation
studies. This would not only facilitate my learning but also benefit me
embedding my academic education in clinical work areas.   

hope to get admission to your program and graduate with advance knowledge, compassion
and dedication necessary for making the most positive impact on meeting the
health care needs of diverse communities. MSN-NP is an excellent platform upon
which I could better advocate for my patient population on the basis of
evidence based practices and keep giving back to my local community throughout
my lifetime. I am aware that this prestigious program will attract many well
qualified applicants, however I strongly believe that I have the commitment, motivation
enthusiasm and experience to excel in it and to ‘add value’ to my class.

thank you for considering my application for graduate studies.


I'm William!
