When I contemplate why I want to pursue a career in the medical field, I picture my high school allied health class where my enthusiasm for the field first started and I became a Certified Nursing Assistant. I have been around hospitals and doctor’s growing up, but that class opened my eyes to a new world. To learn extensive amounts about the healthcare field and have the opportunity to gain clinical experience has no comparison, to be able to learn hands on at that age, and know that I wanted to care for patients. To see all those elderly residents, to experience helping them and showing them compassion, it made my day, every day I was there. The fact that I can do two things I love, learning new things and helping people get better excites
A person was just in a serious car crash, they flew out the window and broke they 're neck, yet they get through it because of a person who was there to help them through the frightening memories, the pain, and stress; the nurse practitioner. A nurse practitioner does a variety of tasks in a hospital. A nurse practitioner is a higher position than a regular nurse. A nurse practitioner requires a Masters degree from an accredited program, some licenses, passing an exam, and good communication.
I knew that I wanted to be a nurse but didn’t know what type of nursing I wanted to be until my friend got diagnosed with two brain tumors that are incurable. After seeing how she was taken care of made me decide I want to become a Pediatrician Nurse Practitioner.
This degree will acclaim myself as a registered nurse, this type of nurses are responsible for caring and educating patients about their current conditions and at best to help them improve by carrying out duties such as to “perform physical exams, provide health promotion, administer medications” (nursingworld.org) and much more. I strongly envision that this career choice fits properly for me. The decision to be someone that cares for people, someone who needs to commit to learn, someone designed to have the hunger to work further only seems justifying for myself. The inspiration to be this someone came from my parents, teachers, friends and especially coaches. My parents who always remind me to be the finest caretaker I can be in this big family, my teachers, specifically one of them is Ms.Kelly,who influences me to always output my best self and reminds me that I can reach heights in life, my loving friend, Austyn Ah Choy, who never fails to note to me that I have the ability to show everyone that I can achieve greatness, and lastly my softball coaches who never give up on me and who help build my engagement towards hard work.
There is a high significance for a nursing student completing their degree in nursing to start their career as a nurse practitioner. Nursing students must prepare to become nationally certified by an accredited body upon completion of their schooling in order to advance their career (AANP, 2016). This academic accreditation process helps to show that the students have met the requirements to practice as a Nurse Practitioner in their population focus testing. The scope of practice will be affected based on the certification that the practitioner obtains. If the Nurse Practitioner obtains a certification as a nurse specialists in pediatrics, oncology, geriatrics, emergency medicine, etc. there are scopes and standards of practices that the practitioner must not act outside of (ANA, 2016). There are also state regulation scopes of practices that allow for Nurse Practitioners to practice independently, with reduced practice, and with restricted practice. Along with these practice environments, Nurse Practitioners must abide by facility and institutional policy and procedures that outline their scope of practice (ANA, 2016). There are very few states that still allow Nurse Practitioners to practice without a national certification. These states in the future may require the nurses however to in fact take national certification as more employers and third party insurers for malpractice are looking
I am a firm believer that in order to be happy and successful, you need to have a job that you love to do. This ideology is what motivated me to want to become a nurse practitioner and help the people in my community. Attending California State University, Los Angeles is allowing me to pursue my academic goal of getting into the nursing program. I aspire to get my bachelors of science in nursing to be able to become a registered nurse. After gaining experience as a registered nurse, I will pursue a master of science in nursing to become a nurse practitioner. A job as a nurse practitioner will allow me to look forward to going to work every day because I know it is something I will love to do. Once I have gained experience as a nurse practitioner and have a stable job as one, I will pursue a doctorate of science in nursing. Being able to treat and help patients fascinates me, therefore every step I take will be worth it.
You may have heard of travel nursing before, but are still wondering, what exactly is a travel nurse? How do people get into this profession? What kinds of qualifications do they need? You may even be wondering if this is something you could see yourself doing.
I believe my experience working as a registered nurse for a few years before pursuing my Nurse Practitioner will allow me to experience bedside nursing and only help me become a better caregiver to my patients. With my Nurse Practitioner Degree, I plan to specialize in OBGYN, helping women of all ages, expecting mothers, and those who may need help conceiving. Lastly, another long term goal I plan to obtain is to constantly have a positive affect on my patients lives, despite where I am at in my nursing career. I plan to achieve this goal by never allowing myself to stop learning about the nursing profession so I can provide the best care possible and always allowing my passion for enriching lives of others to shine through on each patient of mine, regardless of the circumstances. Overall, I feel my strong desire for success and endless amount of ambition will help me achieve my short and long term goals in my future of becoming a

It has always been my passion to care for people. I would like to take my passion for nursing to a higher educational and professional level. My career goal and dream is to become a nurse practitioner for geriatric patients with an emphasis in palliative/hospice care. Through the years, I have been able to make advances toward my dream.
I have a heart for service and a strong desire to make a difference in people’s lives.
The level of nursing that I am currently at as a Certified Nursing aide is a physically demanding job. I personally do not wish to make a career out of it, only use is as a learning tool and stepping stone for my next level of education. My intent was to become a registered nurse someday, although now I am making other considerations. The personal care that I am able to give to a resident is rewarding. Knowing you have helped someone is a grand thing. As a registered nurse it appears that most of the time is spent charting medical records, dealing with way too many headaches, and passing medication.
A nurse practitioner is a nurse with a graduate degree in advanced practice nursing. When I was little I always said I wanted to become a nurse practitioner. It was something about being able to help patients overcome their illnesses that interested me the most. It always seemed like it was the perfect profession for me because I am a people’s person.
Until I decided to go to Lenape, I had not had any plans for what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. When I learned I could graduate as a Certified Nurse Assistant, I was interested immediately. However, I knew I wanted to accomplish more than that. I love learning and I have a lot of empathy so I knew healthcare would be a perfect match for me. I chose nursing specifically because I love the idea of taking care of people, and nurses make a huge difference and have such an impact on the patients and their loved ones lives. In my junior year, I went to Butler hospital to shadow one of the nurses that worked there. During her shift, she was always busy and working hard in order to take care of all her patients. The thought of working hard
Becoming a Registered Nurse though is an adventure not to be taken lightly. Nursing is a constantly evolving and rewarding career for all, but especially men which only recently have been attracted to the career in larger numbers than in previous centuries. Getting into and surviving nursing school can be as challenging and daunting as any other profession but can arguably be considered more rewarding. Men sometimes struggle with stereotypes within the career field because generally society looks at them as being less of a caregiver and more of a provider. Men are
