I'm applying to nursing school and I need to write an essay. Here's the topic:

Tell us how you became interested in healthcare and relate any healthcare experience you may have to date.

How do I write this essay without sounding cheesy or convoluted? The truth is, I've been working in mental health for about 10 years and I'm sick of it. I have a Masters degree in psych and I'm starting over at age 30.

I like working in hospitals and I want to do something more interesting with greater opportunities for advancement and better pay. I think they want the "I really want to help people" speech but I can't do that without sounding insincere.

My mom was a nurse for over 30 years and I'd like to get that in there somehow.

Any suggestions as to how I should approach this? Possible topic sentences appreciated!
