Need help with my personal statement for Nursing?

QUESTION
Need help with my personal statement for Nursing?
Hey, I’m just starting my personal statement for Nursing and I have no idea how to start off ? It says to write a short resume of my interests, hobbies, and any volunteer work. Then to write a brief statement ( max 100 words) to why I’ve chosen this program. I was wondering the format and how long its should be? They only gave me a page to write on.
🙂

ANSWER
A personal statement usually includes the following. You need a good attention grabber. In general you want your essay to follow this order:

Paragraph 1-2 attention grabber. Think of an experience in your life that really showcases who you are. Be detailed. Discuss something signifcant in your life. It could be anything. Or discuss why you want to be in your profession or what story inspired you to study what you are studying.

Paragraph 3-4. Highlight your academics: GPA, classes. What skills you learned in class that will help in succeeding in college. Awards and honors that you have received. Sports or clubs that you are in.

Paragraph 5. Jobs that you have had that relate to your major? Any other things about yourself that you want to include

Paragraph 6: Conclusion
