Pre-health students are often required to write a personal statement to accompany your application for a health professional program. Your personal statement should include information about your journey to become a health professional. It is important that the personal statement clearly articulates your desire to become a nurse, for example, and how you have prepared for a career in this profession. The personal statement should be well written and grammatically correct. The Office of Career Services at Northeastern State University can guide you through the process of writing your personal statement.
