Before I started DOS and the nursing program at Georgian I had never had the experience of looking up scholarly articles and journals through CINAHL, now I know how to find files that are scholarly written and peer reviewed. It has helped me tremendously as I have used CINAHL in every class so far this semester when writing my papers. It had made it easier to find credible resources that I know is well written and has real, honest information. The second one is Investigate the past, present, and future of professional nursing practice, through the history of nursing I learned how nursing started and the techniques they used, and the amount of schooling that was required which I stated above. We are now learning about current techniques and practice standards while in school and we are learning the new ways of nursing which will affect the future of nurses.
The members played a big part in this personal growth of mine, as well. I was shocked when random community members would come up to me to congratulate me on a win or ask how the teams are looking. It was important for me to be assured that they care about the things I was doing. These small conversations felt like an invitation for me to start and hold meaningful conversations with adults. Some of the greatest lessons that I have taken from high school are lessons that have nothing to do with the curriculum.
My mother, Wina Bailey, is a hard working woman who is very successful in life. She not only has a satisfying job, but she is also able to care for her family. When Wina graduated high school, she wasn’t able to achieve her college degree right away because of her family struggles. However, when she was 36 years old, Her best friend inspired her to go back to college because even though it took her friend years to achieve a masters degree, yet she persevered and that gave my mom strength mentally in which she was able to say “ I can do that too”. She decided to attend University of Phoenix’s online classes in extent to care for a family of 4 and juggle working full time.
[(In high school, I was a good student despite having to struggle with a learning disability, ADHD. Now in college I have adapted to overcome the obstacles of having ADHD and learned to thrive.) or (Although I was a good student in high school, I am now a passionate student.)] I currently have a cumulative 4.0 GPA and over 210 hours of clinical experience at Ruby Memorial Hospital. My passion for nursing and perseverance to be the best nurse I can possibly be has been the key to my success.
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.
In this First Clinical Practicum, it is incredible that I have spent 8 weeks to work in medical and surgical wards. Standing out of laboratory, all new things in the wards are curious to me so I am aggressive to explore and grasp every chance for study. Apart from many psychomotor skills I have learnt and applied, I found something I have to improve for my further nursing field. In this reflective journal, I would like to focus on one significant item which is communication. Kimberly B. Chapman (2009) mentioned that as healthcare providers try to accomplish more in less time, the relationships between patients and providers-and among partners-naturally suffer.
Nurses (both Licensed Vocational Nurses and Registered Nurses) make up the largest part of the health care, and have greater opportunities practicing in different disciplines and departments. In Black’s Professional Nursing, he states, “the profession of nursing is more than ever requiring the education of well-trained, flexible, and knowledgeable nurses who can practice in today’s evolving health care environment.” (Black, 2017, p.1). There are different reasons that influenced my decision of seeking a Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN). Flash back to when I relocated to United States in 2011, my goal was getting into a pre-pharmacy program, then get into a pharmacy school. Due to family pressure back in Africa, I had to get a CNA license,
The motivation to pursue a career in nursing has always seemed to be part of who I am, and some of my earliest memories are of my mom and her grandma, both registered nurses, talking about being a nurse and caring for others. Inspiration from my mom and great-grandmother was complimented by one of the biggest inspirations in my life, my cousin Jacob. I was just eight years old, but still vividly remember Jacob being born and visiting him for the first time in the hospital. Jacob was born with Downs Syndrome and had open heart surgery shortly after his birth. As we waited to be able to see Jacob, I was sure I wanted to be one of the people walking around the halls in scrubs responsible for helping care for Jacob and the other children in the
The degree in nursing is one of the most demanded by students worldwide who dreams of becoming a nurse able to help many people. To access nursing career are several requirements that are demanded, but one that must and do not require access to a vocation, because during practice and purpose once the race will run the lives of people who have to attend, so if you really like the safest thing is that this race finish leaving because as any in the world of health care is hard and requires a lot of sacrifice. But vocation aside, the requirements to access the nursing degree are have passed Bachelor or upper-health branch, and not only this but the great demand for this race, especially in recent years, you should have a pretty high court noted
I was lured into the nursing field because of the care nurses have towards their patients, it is more than a job. Also, everyday is a new challenge for a nurse, never knowing what will come in the door next is exciting. Being a nurse means being prepared for anything and everything, helping people, and doing more for people than just your job. The first personal experience I have had with nursing was when I was 12, and my dad needed medical
She said in her interview, “I have learned how difficult it is to get through school. Also, I have learned how great of a job it is. I can choose different specialties to work in the field.” It is extremely tough to get into PA school. Becoming a Physician Assistant is so competitive that a 4.0-grade point average in college may not even be enough to get accepted, but having it certainly helps. Plenty of people apply to get accepted into PA school, and the open slots are intensely limited (Pearson).
While talking with a friend about the field the Physical Therapy and months of research of career opportunities, training requirements, and available training, she had found the path she been looking for. Enrolling in class at Wytheville Community College, the desire and drive for a learning and preparing for a new career started. While waiting to go through the interview process for the Physical Therapy Assistant program, Jennifer completed the Health Science Certificate. With great joy she was accepted into the program. Jennifer, is now a full time student and starting the second semester of the program.
I chose to interview her because I have heard a lot about what they do and it was fascinated. I could not believe CSI were the ones In charge of all those free activities that are constantly happening almost every week at the school. It was indeed a pleasure to have finally meant Ms. Alejandra, and having the opportunity to interview her. In a brief introduction, she began by explaining her view on servant leadership, which she states, “She believes in a group of people working together to achieve a goal, not in a dictatorship.” She then continues to talk about how she operates in
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 should be considered for the Kaiser Permanente Health Care Scholarship because I have proved and accomplished more than what I thought I would be capable of in my education, I am passionate for the health industry, and I financially need to be to succeed. I will continue my education by pursuing my goal to become a Registered Nurse. I first considered Registered Nursing when I joined the Health Academy and realized how passionate I was to help others. Throughout my years in the Health Academy, my passion grew drastically. My summer of 2015 was dedicated to two internships; one being a Medical Assistant (200 hours) and another as a Physical Therapy Aide (80 hours).
