Today, On Wednesday, September 9, 2015, I attended a beginning of the school year healthcare meeting. The annual meeting was conducted by one of the school nurses and it included all of the second grade teachers. Before today’s meeting I had never attended a health care meeting, but I certainly knew of the importance of having a good relationship and communication between school nurses and educators. A teacher’s responsibility includes so many variables including and foremost a student’s care and safety. Additionally, School nurses help educators in ensuring and caring for student’s and their healthcare needs.
The lack of knowledge concerning the effects Adderall has on one’s health and the misuse of the drug has led many students to believe that there are no negative side effects of the drug. The negative effects of Adderall on the human body outweigh the positive effects that are better known by college students. Ninety-five percent of the articles in media reports “mentioned at least one possible benefit of using prescription drugs for neuro-enhancement, but only fifty-eight percent mentioned any risks or side effects” (Lakhan). Since the negative effects of Adderall are not talked about much by the media not many college students are aware of what they are taking and what could happen. Negative side effects of Adderall and drugs similar to it
My eight weeks at Whyalla were a very fruitful professional and personal experience since I was able to recognise how is delivered the clinical health care in regional Australia. I learned clinical skills and attitudes regarding being a RN in an operating theatre and surgical ward in a diverse cultural setting. This report showed that the professional learning goals I set at the beginning of my clinical placement were achievable. My preceptor stated in my PEPR that the nursing care provided was according to the standards of NMBA for RN. I was able to improve my communication and teamwork skills; however I have to improve this competence with senior staff.
Pain is the signal of distress sent by the body; it is a “the feeling of suffering or agony, caused by stimulation of specialized nerve endings” (Rosdahl & Kowalski, 2008, p.704). According to the studies of the international association of the study of pain, it is possible to identify three different types of pain: acute pain, chronic pain and cancer pain (Parsons & Preece, 2010). On this point of view, spiritual beliefs often place a greater significance to help some patient accept their own illness and often render people plan for the future. Also, spirituality can both help people live more profound lives as well as to build-up or console people during suffering and in preparation for inevitable death.
I was a resident of anesthesia & ICU for 35 months, the residency involved providing anesthesia to all types of major surgical procedures including gynecological, neurological, pediatric and emergency surgeries. I learned all the basic skills like airway maintenance, spinal anesthesia, epidural injections, brachial plexus block and ankle block. Intensive care is an integral part of anesthesia & ICU residency so I am sufficiently trained in ventilator operation, providing critical care, central venous catheterization and arterial tapping. I also worked as unit registrar and the scheduling in-charge for entire department. I have actively participated in all academic activities and gave multiple presentations within the unit and on behalf of department
Observations made demonstrated how patient experience within the department is affected by the environment in which patients are cared for including the cleanliness, the security and how well managed the department is; the interactions that occur involving compassion, being listened to and being treated with dignity and respect. The author has recognises that the environment can provide patients with a visualisation of the organisation values. The observations made have reaffirmed that patient experience is an equal element in achieving high quality care. The author acknowledges that the experience may have been different if the activity was undertaken at a different time e.g. not in the school holiday period or later in the morning which
Since I only did observational duties, I was still able to do minor things that does not deal with me lifting patients or touching patients wounds. While the PT have their patients around their gait belt, I would follow behind with patients wheelchair, since at times the residences become tired quickly than others. Since majority of the residents either stayed in the wheelchair or in bed all day.
I had the pleasure of visiting with Mrs. Cooke’s fifth grade class during my clinical experiences. Mrs. Cooke has a great rapport with her students and has very little difficult actively engaging students in learning. One of the “takeaways” from my visit references the students’ and teachers’ commitment to the principles of “The Leader in Me”. From a school-wide perspective, East Elementary School does not practice the traditional positive behavior interventions. Instead, the administration has adopted the ideals and principles behind “The Leader in Me”.
You are a new nursing student who has been hospitalized for injuries from a major car accident. Earlier today, you were told the fracture in your right leg will require complicated surgery to repair and extensive rehab to recover. There is a question as to whether you will ever regain full use of this leg. The surgery is scheduled for tomorrow morning. Tonight you are alone in your hospital room and the night nurse has just come in.
On this day October 24th, 2016 many events happened at Jessie Trice Community Health Center (JTCHC). As usual, I was exactly on time to start my clinical rotation at 8 am. My rounds were made in the clinic looking for something out of place and improvise with my assistance. A morning huddle was hold at the nursing station. Everyone met to listen to the points Joel Polanco, RN would present.
Why I Chose Nursing As a young girl, around the age of eight, I decided I wanted to become a singer, however, that was only a dream of mine. As I got older and more mature, I realized all fantasies do not come to life, so I began to venture toward a more reasonable career path. At first, I wanted to become an anesthesiologist, then a nurse anesthetist when I heard they spent less years in school. I would not necessarily say I lowered my standards or decided on a less prestigious program, but as of right now, I wish to become a Family Nurse Practitioner. This decision was solely based on my shadowing experience.
