I couldn’t live without them, but both also had problems of their own; And being the person I am, instead of helping myself out first, I let my depression get worse and worse in exchange of helping them. I was happy of the fact that I was doing some part in them getting better in someway. I didn’t want to repeat what i felt like I did to my other friend. After a while I got to the point where I had to go to a therapist because I couldn’t handle the pain. I ended up telling my mom I needed a therapist and she got worried.
As for things, I would like to delve into this coming term, as well as the one after that, I honestly haven’t thought about it. I guess I would enjoy learning and doing courses that involves in nursing more, like we about to do next semester I look forward to it. My experience at St George’s University thus far has also been inspiring for me. I came here hoping to have my eyes and ears opened and to be able to see things differently in the world, and to gain as much knowledge that I possibly can. But so far, I am learning little by little and it’s looking as if it’s only getting harder as I come close university learning.
Reflection on Medication Administration Description (Competency 3j) I have looked over my moral development regarding medicine administration and have noticed there is the need for improved and has been agreed with my mentor to write a piece of reflection to identify areas of concern Feelings One of the major concern is the pace of dispensing and the time spent used to open charts and allocate them is one of my weakness. Although I am learner I need to back up the pace of dispensing so that patient doesn 't feel my skills is dull or boring and waste of time. I Had developed that feeling of being extra careful to avoid drug error and that makes me feel slightly nervous more also being under the influence of supervision as well. Evaluation
I had never been placed in this situation of having to actually put forth my skills, but thankfully for this experience, I came to realization of what my future profession was truly supposed to be. I was inspired by helping my father and the reaction he gave me, so I conducted research on nursing We always dream of ideas stitching together a certain way, and then suddenly something trots along the path altering the dream. Everything is not always going to pan out exactly how we imagine. There are going to be life changing decisions that we are going to have to make that may change our future dreams. For the first time, light shone on the possibility of becoming a nurse.
Taking my career choice into consideration was key in my decision which for most people is a long, difficult, and tedious process. The university I will be attending next fall is Washington University in St. Louis. I immediately fell in love with the school as a result of the academic programs, its community, and the classic Midwestern hospitality that I have gotten used to after having lived most of my life in Nebraska. I believe that this university specifically will help me achieve my goal of eventually becoming a neurosurgeon and making a difference in medicine and the world. My talents will be best served and exemplified at a university of this nature and will push me to go for the stars and accomplish my
The overall semester definitely had its up’s and downs . As a Peer Mentor I have learned to appreciate my hardwork much more and also learned that speaking up a lot is key to key action to many things. One of my goals for the semester as a Peer Mentor was to get to know my peer mentees on a friendship level or maybe as acquaintances. That goal actually came true in a way because I only made three acquaintances only. Another goal I had throughout the semester was to go outside of my comfort zone a little, I really didn 't like to talk in front of the class.
These projects gave me an indescribable experience, as a participant, in the discovery process and a newfound appreciation for medical research. As an aspiring future physician, I want to enhance upon the efforts I demonstrated in college by merging the principles I will learn in medicine alongside with those that I have attained in Costa Rica and India. My mission is to change lives. I am not a superhero; I am but one person who believes that the needs of the less fortunate must not be overlooked. Once I am equipped with the armor of medicine, I will be able to help people acquire optimum health care efficiently in the United States and
I saw at first-hand the impact of diseases including, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, but more importantly, I witnessed the impact of empathy and good care had on a patient and their families. This experience helped me learn how to overcome challenges faced when caring for patients each day and it reinforced my motivation to work as hard as possible to succeed in nursing school and continue to work to care for others. The experience also provided an opportunity to act as leader since the assisted care home I worked at this past summer was understaffed due to a change in ownership and some staff changes. When my team was short caregivers, I made sure that I spent more time with each patient to ensure they did not have anxiety about the change and end up worried and feeling alone. I found that a few minutes of companionship and
For my senior project, I observed surgeries and clinical visits at Oregon Urology Institute. I selected this area of study for my senior project because I have always had an interest in the practice of medicine. I wanted to learn why modern medicine is perceived widely as safe and reliable. Going into this project, I had some idea about what a surgical environment would be like. For the last two years, I have been volunteering in Mackenzie Willamette’s emergency department.
Nursing students must develop rapport with their patients more rapidly than clinical assistance or RNs because they will only care for that patient one time. I believe this unique situation has made me a better communicator and advocate for my patients. I have been on many different floors including an Orthopedic unit, Neurology unit, Obstetrics unit, and two different Medical-Surgical units, one being an ICU Step-Down unit. I have enjoyed my time on all of these floors and have learned so much. However, my best experience has been on the Medical-Surgical
In addition, the clinical opportunities offered by the 1st Year Medical Student Program would allow me to interface with some of the best clinicians in the world. I hope to cultivate my knowledge under their mentorship so that I may become a better physician for my
What learning activity or emotional response most took me by surprise during the last two weeks? The emotional response that took me by surprise during the last two weeks was the feeling of achieving the goals from the program. Even if we still need to make few changes to our presentation as per Stephanie’s suggestion. I feel that my learning experience during the whole MSBI program and especially during the practicum has already reached its maximum level, with the completion of our presentation. However, I have mixed feelings; satisfaction of being able to complete the program, but at the same time, fears for the oncoming presentation event.
Ambulatory care settings are often the first places where patients discover why patient’s chose Bellin.

In completing three advancement program cycles as a participant, signifies how increased awareness can be expanded further into ambulatory settings as a number of extravagant opportunities for professional career advancements.
Hi Dianna, I enjoyed the NYPH Psych Clinical Case Conference on 4/12/2017. It was a great idea to bring clinicians together to discuss a complex clinical case, which involved with different hospital services in the NYPH system. In the conference, although we were interested in discussing diagnosis and treatment, I wished that we had time to discuss about the effective ways of communication among services, such as the barriers they experienced regarding endorsement and adequate information transmission from one service to another. Also, I fully support the idea of getting other disciplines’ involvement in case conferences. Indeed, they spend more time with the patients than the treating MDs; they are the extended eyes, ears, and hands for MDs
Code Sepsis Intervention Practicum has been a great opportunity for me to connect and integrate all the knowledge I have acquired through out this program into a more effectively clinical practice. The way I came to realize this was during one of my shifts where I was exposed to a difficult situation but thanks to my skills I was able to proceed in a safety manner. The purpose of this journal entry is to describe how my intervention made a difference in the client outcome and a brief explanation of the competencies and skills used. During a morning shift with my preceptor, we were sent to float to a med surge floor. Once we arrived to the floor, we immediately got report for our seven patients.
