Part IV: Your Career Plan

In a complete paragraph, explain:
1) What career you are most interested in and why
2) Which career path you will pursue to enter this career
3) What you can/need to do while still in high school to prepare for this career and career path?

I am most interested in becoming a nurse practitioner or a trauma nurse because I would be able to
help people and i would use my love of science to do so. For this career path I will have to get a masters in
nursing. In order to do this I will first go to community college for two years then transfer to a 4-year college. In
high school I can take science courses like Biology and Anatomy in order to help me in the future college
classes that I have to take to become a nurse.

Parv V: Backup Plan

In a complete paragraph, explain what you can do if your plan does not work out. Consider the worst-case
scenarios: what if your parents lose their jobs and cannot help you pay for school? What if college turns out to
be more difficult than you thought and you fail? What if your family member(s) get sick and you have to help
take care of them, rather than pursuing your goals

My backup plan if I cannot afford college is to become a EMT. To become a EMT you do not have to go
to college you just have to complete a program in order to be certified to do it. This is a good back up plan for
me because I will still be able to help people and do something I love without having to go to college. I can also
start saving money for college by getting a job in high school and get financial aid if my parents are not able to
help me pay for it.
