Letter of Recomendation

To whom it may concern,

Alonso would be the best person to hire for a registered nurse. We have been together since last year and we have been working together for a long time as a registered nurse. I have seen him do his job and he does his job in such a unique way that it is hard to comprehend the way he does it. Alonso would go from patient to patient helping them as much as he can in the most efficient and quickest way possible. Alonso knows exactly what he’s doing and helps most of the people that are in the hospital. He has saved one hundred percent of the people that he has treated. He has the patience and knowledge to be a registered nurse. Even though Alonso finishes fast with the people he is working with, he would take the amount of time necessary to heal them up. Alonso would also try to find the way to make it as painless as possible so that they would come back to the same hospital if anything happens to them again.

Alonso has been studying medicine since he was young. He has always wanted to be a registered nurse and never took his mind off of it. He was so confident on becoming a registered nurse that he has found his own techniques on becoming better at his job. He found out what everything does and what is the most efficient thing to use for his patients. Alonso’s little tricks helped the patients to heal faster and helped them by making it painless as much as possible. He helps any patients no matter the age of that person or how critical their injuries are. He always does his best when it comes to his job. Alonso would never slack around when the time is serious and would always do his best no matter how easy he thinks the injury is. He always expects the worse coming through the door and always tries to find the solutions for it before they come in. Alonso always knows when he is not able to heal the injuries of a patient and always leaves that patient to the doctor instead of putting that patient into a more of a risk of dying.

Since Alonso was little he always had the desire to help the people in need and always would. Alonso always had always had the ability to help anyone in need since I have known him and he never hurt anyone. He never lets his emotions get in the way of his work and always knows that a lot of horrible injuries would be coming his way. He always does everything with a good motive and would always help people, even if he knew that it would hurt them. He has been in the hospitals many times now and wants to be like the people who has helped him. He is familiar with where materials go and where everything is.

Persuasive Essay

When people hear the University of Houston in a simple phrase, one cannot think of anything else but 1 word, Bold. The University of Houston is known for its bold actions, rather it be in the classroom or on the field, the University of Houston will always bring a surprise worth watching. I myself can relate to the University of Houston's mind-set, being bold is a characteristic i am known for, although one can see me or the University as abnormally notorious, we are very humble. Both of our actions correlate to make a mind set that is bold and powerful like no other, because the only opinion that matters is our opinion.

The University of Houston's symbol is a cougar. I myself, like to think of myself as a cougar, i can not afraid, i am bold, but i am loyal to my surroundings. Cougars never back away from a challenge, these challenges vary from catching dinner to fighting off a challenger or predator. I like to take on challenges to put myself through adversity, any task that may come up, i will be there to fulfill, the mind of a predator i posses, hungry to strive forward until i reach the door of the real world, and i will not come politely, i will kick the door open because i will succeed. The University and i share a mindset not possessed by many others, the mindset of desire.

The University of Houston succeeds at what they do, any aspect of the university will win, and that is the mentality and the vibe that i want to keep. Nursing has always been the desire in my life, i want to thrive in the medical field and what a better school than to obtain my degree in the University of Houston, the school that keeps the perfect mindset, high caliber academics, and great student life. The University of Houston is a specifically designed university for people like me, people with the desire to go forward in life and to keep on moving, no matter the pace.
