I have always been intrinsically drawn to the nursing profession. I have not survived or experienced any life-threatening illness nor had a role-model for inspiration to be a nurse and luckily, never had to take care of anyone close to me suffering from a medical condition. I knew I wanted to be a nurse and I strongly believe it is my calling in life. As a registered nurse, I have grown professionally and personally and that reinforces my goal to advance my education at University of Miami for the Adult Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Program.

My name is Ruth Sobalvarro and I am 28 years old, graduated from New York University in 2014 and proud to be the first nurse in my family. Since elementary school through college, I have participated in student associations and held leadership roles. While at NYU, with the help of the FDNY department, I was able to provide my organization, Alpha Sigma Tau, a free CPR class. Additionally, alongside my advisor and Kirsten Haglund – an advocate for increased awareness of eating disorders and who served as miss America 2008- we created a programming event that allowed students to learn about eating disorders and therefore promoted ways to improve and have control of their health and utilize the resources available to them for illness prevention and awareness. I am confident, I can apply the skills I have gained and learned to the University of Miami (“UM”). Being a Miami native, I would be proud to attend UM as it sustains a reputable academics programs and is well known for its school pride. I have friends who have graduated from UM and some who are currently attending and they all rave about their experiences.

My first nursing job was in 2015 at Mount Sinai Medical Center where I became a practicing nurse. I worked there for two years and left in 2017. I became a traveling nurse and fulfilled contracts in New York Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital, New York Presbyterian Weill Cornell Hospital, and Maui Memorial Medical Center in Hawaii. I am currently working in Baptist Homestead Hospital. I, also, was a part of a Medical Mission trip named Mindo Futures to empower the community of Mindo, Ecuador. After acquiring these new experiences and challenges, my goal to become an AGPCNP was only strengthened as I saw the amount of people seeking medical care and not enough practitioners available. Becoming an AGPCNP will help me fulfill my role as a health care professional, ideally, to help decrease the older adults from coming back into the hospital by teaching preventative measures. As well as to make a difference with the nursing shortage nationwide. A main reason why I am applying to UM is because your school has evolved among one of the best research establishments. As a future Nurse Practitioner, I want to strive to improve patient care with the best knowledge available.

I am a runner, hiker, and enjoy riding bicycle. In my active lifestyle, I have seen people of all ages, adolescents through older adults run, hike, and bike ride. I have witnessed the health benefits in myself and in them. My interests in health, along with my background in nursing and personal hobbies align with my goal to become a AGPCNP and I will be grateful to attend and advance my career at your establishment. I know I will gain the ability to do something I love, grow in my nursing profession, contribute to my community and continue challenging myself at the University of Miami.
