Healthcare Personal Statement

Example Healthcare Personal Statement

I believe that health and well being play a vital role in people’s lives, therefore I have always admired people that work in the health industry. Growing up as the child of a nurse, I truly have a high regard for the people that help make a difference in the lives of others. I am also very much a people person and my desire is to work in a role that allows me to interact with people and help them with their well being. The thought of this excites me greatly as I long to make a positive impact on other people’s lives and believe that I will gain great job satisfaction from this.

Having previously studied fashion, I ultimately didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought I would. It wasn’t what I had expected. I have taken the time out to decide on my new career plan and have come to realize that my passion lies in helping others. I am now dedicated to gaining the knowledge to be able to do this. I now know that I want a career in a field that is health related. I believe that if I am successful on this course I can use my knowledge to help others and will gain immense satisfaction from giving something back to the community.

I have been working in Zara for the past year as a Sales Assistant. Through working in retail I have gained confidence, which is important in everyday life. I have also honed my organisational, teamwork, customer service and communication skills. I believe that these skills will help me in my career in health sector through enabling me to create strong relationships with patients and colleagues and allowing me to organise my workload effectively.

During my spare time I enjoy socializing with my friends, eating out at restaurants and going to the cinema. Going out with friends allows me an opportunity to make new friends and meet new people. As a very sociable person I would relish the chance to utilise these skills in a professional context. As you might imagine, I am also concerned about my own health and fitness, therefore I enjoy dancing as I find a very enjoyable way to keep fit.

I am really looking forward to the challenge of university. I am applying as a mature student, partly as I want to improve my job prospects, but also due to having taken the time to reconsider my previous academic decisions. My choice of degree and university has been researched thoroughly and my knowledge of what the course entails means that I am confident that this is the right course for me. I believe I will achieve my ambition of becoming qualified in the health industry. I am fully committed to all the challenges ahead. I hope with my positive attitude and determination I can reflect this in my study and, ultimately, in my career within the field.
