Being knowledgeable in promoting a high quality of life and optimum health appealed to me. Mastering and understanding the body’s response to diet and exercise intrigued me. Studying the art and science of human anatomy and movement interested me, which resulted in choosing nursing as my career. UCI would be great for me because I am a dedicated achiever of my goals, and will finish the Master of Science in Nursing program with an open mind and a driven spirit. I am not afraid to make mistakes, as I have learned that they are the greatest opportunity for growth.
The second competency that resonated with me was the ability to “Demonstrate the use of informatics methodologies to advocate for patient autonomy, dignity and rights and in policy development that would support both the patient and the institution.” I am passionate about advocacy. As a nurse and officer, I must often advocate for my patients and the soldiers who serve under my leadership because I recognize keeping them at the center will improve overall outcomes, satisfaction and morale. Despite the challenges and push back I may encounter as an advocate, it is my responsibility to the patient and soldier. The competencies acquired with this specialty will mature my advocacy. Additionally, I will be
I will also have a chance to interact with people from different cultural groups thus making it easy to develop cultural competence in my line of duty. On the other hand, I will gain experience in handling different patients with a variety of needs for restoration of their health (Reel & Abraham, 2007). The nursing profession in the future will receive the support of the government, the hospital administration and the community served. As a result, working in different parts of the country will ensure that I acquire more skills and advance the learned ones thus meeting the demands of the patients. The future will thus offer an opportunity for the APRNs to operate in different parts of the country thus achieving long-term
I will be able to use my past experiences and my passion for connecting with others in order to build relationships with my coworkers and patients. My life experiences have also developed me into a socially responsible leader. I have personal integrity and want to use my knowledge in order to contribute to the larger society. Using my knowledge in order to make a difference in people’s lives would be satisfying and
Observing and meeting people with similar experiences made me reevaluate and reconsider nursing as a major. I choose to major in Biology because it is a broad field, and offers a wide range of careers. Also, a concentration in Biology will allow me to help others, give me the knowledge and research to help others with asthma , and persons who have other medical conditions. Majoring in Biology will not only help me better human life, but also enhance animal life, and the environment. I want to go become a student at West Chester because I love the student life.
After sitting in the hall for five hours, David complained that he needed to lie down. The ER staff, who had been trying to move him to a VA hospital with no luck, finally transferred him by ambulance to a local nursing home. David had a massive stroke shortly after being admitted to the nursing home and died six weeks later (Fremgen, 2016, p. 161). a. Does there appear to be negligence in this case?
My personal goal is simply to be successful, and I don't mean money but to be happy with myself and what I have been able to accomplish. Whatever I choose to do I simply want to enjoy it, to be good at it, and to continue bettering myself. Becoming a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner is my goal and I know in some few years to come I would have a Phd degree in nursing. I would like to help, be a huge part and play a role of success in the nursing field. Working for a major children's hospital has always been my dream and making a difference within the hospital would be my ideal goal of professional success.
Suddenly, everything went blank, and that 's all I remember from my first hospitalization. Three surgeries to fix the structure of my hips, and months of life-threatening complications later, the memories are coming back in pieces. I remember the post-seizure fatigue that swept over me as a result of the drugs being pumped into my system. I remember the little girl whom I shared a room with and her plaid comforter that practically engulfed the entire hospital bed. However, most prominently, I remember the half smiles, the quickly wiped tears, and the exhausted sunken eyes of my mother.
As a student I know the importance of studying and completing school works in a timely manner. That is what helped in the past and I plan to continue doing it throughout the RN school. Obtaining my RN is an investment both intellectually as well as financially. Once I complete the course, I hope to have a broader knowledge in the field of nursing which I can use in the
This hospice clinical will affect me for years to come, it taught me how to show compassion even when I am scared for the patient. It taught me that just because my patient is dying, or is very much near death, doesn’t mean that they are unaware of their condition. I honestly feel that this hospice experience has made me a better person, and it will make me a better
My family was going through a tough time, all they wanted were answers. All that night I had to drink a drink the doctor’s gave me to get ready for surgery that early morning. What? Another surgery my incision wasn’t close to healing before they opened me back up. The morning of the surgery came, and the doctor came in my room told my family if you guys would have brought her in any later then yesterday Ms. Jessica would have died.
She drank to relieve stress, but it had gotten to the point where she could not go a day without this poison. I was thirteen years old is when it became a problem. Over the course of these three years, without my mom receiving the help she needed, it came down to us having to call 9-1-1. I was terrified to go home at night, to fall asleep, and to stay asleep because of the nightmares I would have about that night. I did not want to talk to her because of how much I resented her.
