I learned a lot from those nurses but could not decide which unit was meant for me. Nevertheless, I applied to the University of Texas at Arlington’s nursing program and was accepted in Fall 2014. That opened the doors to countless opportunities for me to find my spark. Through my lectures and clinical rotations, I was taught that being a nurse meant ensuring the safety of every patient and working arduously to maintain their quality of life.

Kailee Katt There are many reasons why I have chosen to pursue a profession in healthcare, mainly because I enjoy helping others, I am very personable, and I like to make an impact on the lives of others. However, the primary reason why I want to become a nurse is because of past influences. My mother, and both grandmothers have all been in the medical field as nurses, but the one person who has had the most influence on me, is my doctor, Chris Chapman.

Over the last ten years of working within the health care sector I’ve worked closely with mental health nurses, listening to their personal experiences in a wide variety of settings. Extensive research, work experience and personal experiences of mental health issues such as my son’s recent diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder has inspired me to pursue a mental health nursing qualification. Mental health nursing promotes and highlights relevant skills that I have acquired over the years that are crucial in this role. Courage to trust my own judgement and competence to make decisions in often highly stressful situations has lead me to be promoted to team leader at work. This position requires me to administer medications and undertake audits, update and make evaluations within care plans and build collaborative partnerships between various healthcare professionals.
After accumulating these two clinical exposures, I found myself wanting to see what it would be like in a major hospital and in a fast paced setting. I began volunteering in the Cleveland Clinic Emergency Room this past December and to say it is fast paced is an understatement. I am hands on helping nurses, I am observing physicians, and interacting with patients in ways I had never experienced before. This clinical experience really gives me a hospital feeling and understanding that I think everything has accumulated to prepare me to handle this position. While completing all of these clinical experiences, I also had the privilege to shadow physicians in 8 different professions.
