I was exposed to the world of medicine from a very young age. My mother, sister, and grandmother all had careers in the field. I was always the selected person to help them study for a quiz, practice a procedure on, and to hear about their stories from work. Their careers seemed fascinating. I knew then that my career was destined to be in medicine.
“Before applying to PA school, it is important to get experience in medical or patient care, make the most of each rotation in PA school, ask questions and learn as much as you can,” said Abby Pearson. “It is possible to get a job offer from a
Being in the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) class with Ms.Pennington is always interesting. We attend class every morning during the week from 9:00am.m to 11:30am. The main thing that we work on is all the procedures we need for the residents. But we also work on how to keep the resident safe, and comfortable. Being in the CNA class helps us move forward in the medical field.
I took a cadaver class last year where we reviewed what we had learned from previous anatomy and physiology classes. The professor of that class is a general surgeon at St. Luke’s Hospital, and he showed us how to do certain medical procedures while we got to practice using the cadaver. We dissected the cadaver as well as learned to suture. That class was by far my favorite class I’ve taken since I’ve been in college, and it made me feel very excited for my future working in the medical
Ever since I was a little girl my dream was to grow up and be a doctor, and i still have that dream. My choice of major is Biology: Anatomy and Physiology to later go on to medical school and become an ER physician. I feel like I have always been push to be a doctor and that is why I just ended up really getting into it more and more as I grew older. I actually grew up with a variety of people in the medical field including my mother, which is when I truly realized that science and the human body fascinated me. I was ten when my mom decided to become a Medical Assistant (MA), and she would always take me to her classes with her
This year, my willingness to take on a new challenge of enrolling in the Certified Nursing Assistant course at Wenatchee Valley College has helped mold me into a motivated self-disciplined individual. This year, I took on the challenge of enrolling in Wenatchee Valley College’s Running Start program. One of my most challenging classes at the college to-date has been the eight-credit certified nursing assistant class I applied to. This is a program specific class that required hours of application work along with multiple doctor’s examinations to gain admittance to. Only a limited number of applicants were allowed to take this class and I am happy to say I was able to be one of them.
Today, I am glad I choose nursing because I have overcome my social fears, learn to be a team player, learn how to prioritize and most importantly learned to manage stress. Lastly, I grew as a nurse with each semester because I learned how to respect and treat each patient as a unique individual. I have also learned to put my patient safety as my priority and provide presence because I realized through my clinical experience that, sometimes that all the patients need. Below is the breakdown of how I have developed each semester in nursing school. FALL 2013 • Foundations of Nursing: NUR 2310
I am interested in your New Graduate Nurse Residency Program. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing from the University of Massachusetts Boston and recently obtained my MA RN license in August 2015. I choose to be an RN because I love learning about the anatomy and physiology of the human body and working with people. When I was a little girl, I would watch the Discovery Health channel instead of watching cartoons. In high school, I became interested in social justice work when I did a month long volunteer service trip to India.
Personal Statement I am interested in studying for a degree in the Mental Health Nursing in your university, and I would like to make my career in this noble profession. I first considered nursing as a career some years ago, after I lost my father to a chronic kidney disease. The role played by the nurses in terms of care while he was in hospital and after his death was quite overwhelming. Although I had my first degree in Agricultural Economics, but this nothing in compare to the passion I later developed for nursing after the death of my father. I have since developed myself in health and social care sector by training and updating my skills.
1.0 INTRODUCTION I was qualified as trained nurse about 10 years ago. I have been working in pediatrics ward, outpatient department and lastly in the operating theatre (OT). Currently, I am working in Obstetrics and Gynecology (O&G) ward after getting midwifery courses. As one of the senior trained staff nurse with midwifery, one of my responsibilities to orientated and guided new trained nurses who are posted into our unit. Mentoring is a complex term but as in health profession, it is a voluntary professional relationship between a mentor and mentee.
One of the most important things to me besides family and friends would be getting my nursing degree. Most kids want to be the president or a sports player but not me; I always wanted to be a nurse. It was just in my nature to care of others before myself. When I turned sixteen years old, I received my Nursing Assistant License and have been working at Bethany Nursing Home in Waupaca, WI. The following summer, I attended Bellin Nursing Camp where I fell in love more with the nursing field.
There a dozen of us stood, giddy with the feeling of accomplishment that we had passed and elated that we were done. As we received our certificate for completion of the certified nursing assistants course, we looked ahead to ponder what was going to be done with our new knowledge. We would never be together as a class again, but we would all have a special bond that would forever connect us. The course was just a start to what I had in mind for a later career, but I couldn’t imagine where I would be without it.
Clarissa, I would agree that, Certified Nurses Assistants are not medically trained to administer medication and that task should be handled by an LPN or an RN. Just for the fact that administering medications involves more than giving the residents their medication, there are tasks, such as, including reviewing the order; confirming that the medication order is correct; reviewing all warnings, interactions, and allergies; evaluating the patient after the medication has been administered.
Navi, It is unfortunate that the consequence of Julie Thao’s decision to work overtime to help the hospital actually did the opposite by affecting her health and caused a fatal medical error. I completely agree with your 3 weapons against healthcare harm: leadership, safe practice, and technology. As Advanced Practice Nurses, I strongly believe we must to be accountable, responsible, and approachable in order to be an effective healthcare role model and leader. Our priority should always be patient safety as we assess, diagnose, and implement interventions. APNs should conduct continuous research for self-knowledge, to educate staff members, and to educate the patients.
