I'm way behind on writing my personal statement, mostly because I am not quite sure how to start. That I am sure I will get over, I just have to make myself. But here is my real dilemma. I was a nurse before I went back to finish my pre-reqs and apply to med school. There are a lot of things about nursing that I liked, but the field as a whole was not for me. But a lot of experiences that I had made me want to pursue med school. I am just not sure that talking about being a nurse within my personal statement is a wise choice, because I don't want it to come off in a "nurses suck, so I want to be better than them, so let me into your school" kind of way. So do I leave out the mention of nursing all together, and find a different way to approach my personal statement? Or is the fact that I am leaving one health profession for another a big enough thing that it needs to be talked about? I've been over it a million different ways and I can't seem to come up with an answer on my own, so I am more than open to suggestions if anyone has any. Thanks!
