I am a nursing student, I completed my Bachelors degree in 2018 at the University of Western Cape. I look forward to continuing my education in the persuit of a career in Nursing Education. I have a very strong academic background in Nursing having graduated top of my class (summa cum laude). For 4years i had to work hard attending classes and working in order to pay for my education and accommodation. I self funded my entire course.
Pursuing a Masters degree at a prestigious University like Stellenbosch University seemed like a logical step forward, in terms of my career prospects and personal development. Due to my limited financial resources i am not able to fund my studies further. I have been accepted at Stellenbosch University to study Masters in Nursing in 2021, due to financial constraints i feel at risk of missing this life opportunity.
The future of healthcare in South Africa will demand a workforce with specialized skillset. With this masters degree i will be able to meet this demand and be a pioneer in the Nursing education. My passion is to become a nursing educator. I intend to help people and teams to develop their own potential, to overcome obstacles and to achieve their academic goals.
My future career perspectives strictly depend on educational progress since nursing requires continuous research and education to meet the everchanging complex demands of modern healthcare.
During my bachelor's degree, i was active in many facets of university life. I was a Peer mentor, Peer facilitator and a tutor. I was also awarded numerous merit awards. From 1st to 4th year i was awarded the Dean's award of merit and i graduated top of my class Summa cum laude.
I enjoy helping others with schoolwork and have continued to aid fellow nursing students at the university level. I believe education is the key to success, and i try to connect my passion for education with my desire of helping others.
Through all of these experiences i have learned to act as a leader, work in groups, and organise my time appropriately. Im looking forward to your assistance and know that it is highly appreciated.
