According to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary, persistent means to

- to continue firmly in a course of action despite difficulties and opposition.'

Nursing students all face difficulty in one form or the other, whether it is long travel time, having to care for children, a job or financial issues.

With persistent we continue to put our time and resources.
'Passion is a strong feeling of enthusiasm or excitement about doing something.'

Passion is what drives us to put the work and concentration into pursuing our nursing careers.

Can we revised our study schedule? change our old ways of test taking? Adjust our recreational time to accommodate more study time? Through passion lets rise to the occasion.
Activation:To set in motion. What was the decision that first have us thinking that we want to go to nursing school?

Was it the more come answer of
" I want to help people?",
"I want to make money "

are was it a more complex thought such as

I want to use my nursing degree as a stepping stone to going to medical school?"

Whatever the reason/s are, you has achieved a major first step.
