Personal Statement and Information
I am Bonnibel G. Hermoso, 29 years old, a Filipino citizen and a graduate of Bachelor of Science in Nursing in one of the known schools in Cebu City, Philippines, the Cebu Institute of Technology University. The school is known in the fields of Engineering and Nursing. I graduated in October 2009 and started working in a nearby orphanage. I am currently working as a Nursing Aide in Orange Valley Nursing Home, one of the leading nursing homes in Singapore. Working here had helped me developed my skills in my chosen career. Also, I became capable of handling different temperament of people in a multiracial environment and typically stressful situations.
To become a nurse would be to live my life doing something I am passionate about. I am a person who genuinely enjoys working directly with people. Caring for elderly has been very special to me considering the experience I had with my grandmother, as well as in my current workplace. I want to do a job that matters to them and I want to be able to lift the spirits of elderly patients and make them more energetic.
Looking at different options for career advancement, I decided to study in Canada considering the environment and various support systems available. The advance study programme will enhance my career prospects, make me become more effective in my role and help achieve my goal in providing great service at work.
Furthermore, I see that this opportunity will allow me to give back to my parents who have always been supportive in whatever I do. I feel blessed by their overwhelming support in this journey to better myself. They are the source of my strength and I think of my dream for them whenever I face adversities. My mother who is an accountant is still working to support my father and I want to be able to support them so my mother can retire.
This plan of mine will benefit me holistically for it will not just widen my knowledge in nursing but also develop my character knowing that I will be in a new environment. I know that it will require perseverance and sacrifice but I foresee positive results at the end of the study course. With my determination, willingness to learn and positive mindset, this move will bring me closer to reaching my goals.
Although I have already completed a degree of Bachelor of Science in Nursing in the Philippine 9 years ago, enrolling in the Bachelor of Nursing program at the Niagara College will be beneficial to my professional development for a few reasons. Firstly, knowing that nursing is rapidly evolving, doing program will update my knowledge as nursing aide working nursing aide. As technology, legislations and working place demands continually change and effective nurse at the end of this course. Secondly, the nursing degree that I will undertake will introduce me to the standards of nursing care they have in place in Canada. Lastly, the bachelor degree I will earn from Niagara College will be the missing link to my career progression. With the skills and knowledge I will gain from the course, it will be an advantage for me when I seek a higher level of employment back in Singapore.
I will be taking a graduate diploma specialization in gerontology, which is a 12 month study program. I believe that having this program will widen my knowledge in terms of nursing the elderly. I am really grateful and honoured in having a chance of pursuing an academic study program which provide essential insights and learning in my chosen field. I intended to study and work as well Canada following the terms stated in the Study Permit Rules and regulations. Studying while having the chance to work in accordance to the rules will basically enhance my time management skills as well as increase potential learning while interacting with different people under working circumstance.

Canada, being one of the most educated countries, offers affordable and high quality education which is recognized around the world and especially in my home country Philippines. In addition to that, safety and security are among the best in the country and it has a good quality of living. Having a diverse population makes Canada one of the most exciting places to study knowing that you have the chance to learn among multi-cultural people.
Ties in Philippines (10-15 sentences)
Graduating from Niagara College’s nursing program would definitely open more doors for me subject of employment requirements. I have all the intentions in going back in the Philippines for my family and seek a higher level of employment in my home country once I will be able to successfully accomplish my student program. I am fully understood about my student status and I am more committed to be with my family and be reunited with them in the Philippines.
Specifically, I would have the following when come back to once I am done with my program:
I understood that certain program in Canada have benefit of Post-Graduate work permit. The reason why I choose 12 month program is because I do not wish to stay any longer than my 12 month education, nor would I be undergoing the internship that school offers for another year program solely because I am intending to come back to my family after my program ends. I know this program would not grant me the PGWP, hence I would safety say that I will not be a legal risk during my stay and that I would strictly abide by the rules of he country.
