My interest in the nursing profession was not made conscious until I realized that inherently, I am a caregiver. Taking care of someone feels as if it is second nature to me. Being so, I found a passion for assisting others in a professional environment. I became interested in nursing because as a nurse, I will be able to holistically care for patients and their families at their most vulnerable moments and ensure the highest quality of care because I will be the one delivering it. My insight on nursing school is as if it is a journey.
The nursing profession has become one of the fastest growing profession in healthcare. Although some people might argue does the benefit of a nursing degree is not worth the stress. People go into this profession to enrich their lives, help their community and be a part of the healthcare changes we need today. Therefore, graduating with a nursing degree has it good benefit and also a sense of achieving a personal goal for student. First, the benefit of having a nursing degree outweighs the stress of obtaining the degree.
The various skills which I gained while working in the operation theatre can be basis for the future studying and practice. I have a huge motivation and determination to achieve my desired career, and I am ready for academic challenges. There is a lack of experienced and educated nursing staff in my home country, Kuwait. That is why Bachelor of Nursing can be a huge benefit for me while applying for a job in hospitals and medical centers. Thus, it would give me an opportunity to find an interesting job in the health care field, and also help contribute to the development of the National Health care
After graduation I sought out and secured a job in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU) at Grady. After I felt comfortable with my skills set and experience, I transferred to the Rapid Response Team within Grady in 2010. In August 2013, a new twenty bed OBSERVATION UNIT -Clinical Decision Unit (CDU) was opened with in the emergency room. After visiting this area, I noticed the nurse practitioners solely in control of the area. I witnessed Nurse Practitioners (NP) managing patients with congestive heart failures, (CHF), Diabetes, chest pain, asthma, and many more acute illnesses.
These factors include trust, support, mutual respect and collaboration when a colleague is sick (Norris, 2012). This incident had prompted me to think about several important aspects of nursing for me. Nurses should apply human factors knowledge to clinical settings to enhance teamwork and workplace culture. Human factors application is important for patient safety. The underlying reasons for clinical errors are often associated with poor communication, teamwork, leadership, and assertiveness in the clinical settings.
In conclusion, the healthcare system today would not be where they at if it was not for the latest in up to date research and the outstanding healthcare knowledge from the medical staff of Kelsey Seybold. Through current market efforts it is essential to update many facets about the Kelsey Seybold brand and tie them with the technology of today through marketing strategies. Many efforts of planning to market an organization comes from different methods and techniques that break down an organization to drawn in potential patients. Needless to say, that Kelsey Seybold would not be where they are today through various recognitions from staff members and having the best patients support for so many years.
My passion has always been the ex-factor for me in everything I do. Generally speaking, if I love something I try to give it my all despite how hard it maybe for me to attain. My desire to become a medical auditor is to be a part of the solution not the problem. I believe patients are entitled to efficient and quality healthcare. I have witnessed first-hand what errors and incorrect diagnoses can do.
Living after cancer treatment is not free of complications as there are acute and chronic side effects of treatment that requires constant monitoring and attention, and this information spurred me to shift my focus from palliative to survivorship care. The knowledge that I have attained now and my background in patient navigation will help me as a future oncology nurse practitioner, to manage the complex needs of cancer survivorship. I will be able to support my patient’s transition into their new way of life as effective transition management can translate into less hospitalization, lower health care cost and less physical, emotional, spiritual, social and financial stress to patients and their support system. Hope comes in many forms other than with the cure, it comes with control, relief, comfort; to a dying patient, it could mean living another day with their loved ones and
Be sure to do your research and think carefully about the type of healthcare facility that is right for you, as that decision could help determine what degree program is best for you. Health systems management has been described as a "hidden" health profession because of the relatively low-profile role managers take in health systems, in comparison to direct-care professions such as nursing and medicine. However the visibility of the management profession within healthcare has been rising in recent years, due largely to the widespread problems developed countries are having in balancing cost, access, and quality in their hospitals and health systems. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projects a 17% increase in employment of medical and health service managers from 2014 to 2024. This is a faster growth rate than the predicted for the average of all occupations over the same decade.
Introduction 1. Background: Antimicrobial resistance is a global concern for effective health care delivery. (1) Extensive use of antibiotics in healthcare institutes is one of the main causes for emergence of antimicrobial resistance. (2) The misuse of antibiotics has also contributed to the growing problem of antibiotic resistance, which has become one of the most serious and growing threats to public health. Unnecessary exposure to antibiotics affects patients’ health seriously; suffering from serious adverse events with no clinical benefit, prolongation of hospital stay, prolonged treatment with antimicrobials or even the need for further surgical intervention; which causes a considerable burden on patients, health care system and the

Having the opportunity to listen to patients during their interactions with physicians while shadowing in primary care practices was most profound to my journey of pursuing a career in medicine. Often the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions are regarded as most important in providing successful care to patients. However, from my experience shadowing, it became apparent that the act of listening to patients is just as essential to the practice of clinical medicine. While shadowing, I was amazed of how often and to the extent patients would disclose their thoughts, feelings, and fears to their physician. I began to understand that to be a physician is much more than treating the body itself, but caring for all of its components— physically,
As the authors on numerous occasions enforced, in T.V. shows, I too usually equate the doctor as the primary care giver to the patient in each case. One statement by the authors especially struck me: in the show Grey’s Anatomy, the nurse functioning as an on-hand consultant for the actors “shows the actors playing physicians how to do important things nurses really do, and lends an air of realism to a show that portrays her profession as trivial” (17). The only appearances I usually witness on television by nurses usually fit into the authors’ identification as the “mute handmaiden” (9) or “peripheral subordinates” (17) role; appearing behind the doctor, just fixing an IV, or handing over some medical documents for the doctor to actually analyze and then dramatically diagnose. Upon some further reflection after reading, I realize that even in reality I tend to envision nurses as more or less assistants to doctors or physicians in the clinical setting.
Please tell us why you are interested in our program. I am interested in this program because I want to assist in clinical research at a top medical institution working to find new technologies and treatments for currently unmet medical needs, and the Brigham and Women’s hospital is an ideal fit. The clinical research I would be working on through this internship interests me because opioid use is a problem facing the medical field today and I want to help in researching new technologies to eradicate today’s opioid problem. Participating in clinical research to treat pain would not only allow me to get firsthand experience in health care and clinical research in a field I would like to be a part of. The clinical research skills I would be
My societal responsibility once I complete my degree would be to help others be the best that they can be no matter their environment or mental situation. I plan on becoming a neurosurgeon but I really want to focus on mental health treatments. I also want to volunteer with Doctors without Borders because I enjoy travelling and helping others that do not have the opportunity for betterment either with not having enough money or not being able to reach a medical center. Over the course of history, the treatment of mental health patients has been very cruel and inhumane. Although modern standards of treatments have improved greatly, an idea that I have had would be treatment that would be a little less invasive and could be used for many different types of mental illnesses.
