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 the last two years, I have been volunteering in Mackenzie Willamette’s emergency department. I helped around and talked to a lot of people in the medical profession and I observed how they communicated with each other. I saw the benefits of good communication and how it can positively improve the work environment. And I saw how negative communication can distract from what really matters; providing safe and reliable care for the patients. So coming into this project I wanted to take what I had observed and
At this point I thought that a doctor would not only work on treating the physical condition of the patient but would have a big role in bringing joy in spite of their hopeless condition. When my relative was diagnosed with alopecia, the doctors were too busy with other patients to treat her. They were so busy that it was hard for us to get an appointment with them. During that time, I wished that there was an assistant to the doctor who could treat my relative and help her get through her toughest moments. That night, I went home and researched about doctors having assistants who can
You can enjoy the moments when you play with your friends and family as well as when you join a soccer team. You will be meeting new friends that you have not met before. It is helpful because you and your team will have rules to do when you play in the field, and they build trust with you which you can know everyone strength from weakness. Gaining a friend can increase your popularity which also at the same time will encourage you to play much better. For example, I have been playing soccer for a long time with my buddies, and they call me in every time there is a match.
Despite of everything, I enrolled in nursing for first semester. I am happy and enjoy nursing a lot that I got high grades. My father is so proud and give his support on my decision but after 1st semester, my father informed me that my aunt will not support me anymore. I feel sad about the news but I cannot
I 'm writing this essay because i am interested in becoming a red cross volunteer and would love the opportunity to experience volunteering at Walter Reed Hospital. I was in this program last year and i was put in the Radiology department and it was really great experience i was exposed to so much and i learned so much last year. I want to be in this program again because when i get older i want to work in a hospital and although i learned so much last summer there is still a lot i can learn, see and experience. I got the chance to work in breast imaging where I improved my communication and computer skills thats where i mostly spent my time at. i also worked the front desk where i checked in and out patients i learned the process they take
I took a cadaver class last year where we reviewed what we had learned from previous anatomy and physiology classes. The professor of that class is a general surgeon at St. Luke’s Hospital, and he showed us how to do certain medical procedures while we got to practice using the cadaver. We dissected the cadaver as well as learned to suture. That class was by far my favorite class I’ve taken since I’ve been in college, and it made me feel very excited for my future working in the medical
In my college career I been involved in in the student government, in which I hold a position as a senator of activities.

I also was involved in promoting coaches vs. cancer event held at Porterville college Main Gym, which was very successful event, in which student government and other Porterville college club raise money to support the fight against cancer.
You are not important because of how long you live, you are important because of how effective you live” by Myles Munroe. This is our chance to change our life. This is our chance to help others to improve their life. This is our chance to save the people’s
Last semester I faced employment challenges which, like a domino effect, led to personal challenges. I worked as a pharmacy technician at CVS pharmacy which allowed me to get much needed experience in the health field, however the demands of my job often crowded my life so much that I barely had time to sleep, hang out with friends and even perform well academically. As the most recent hire, I felt a bit intimidated. I did not want to seem too demanding and high maintenance with a limited schedule. Although I emphasized that I was a full-time student, I would still find myself getting scheduled 20+ hours a week, way over the 12 hours and below I had initially requested.
When I was growing up, I always wanted to work in the medical field. Freshman year of high school, I joined Student Athletic Training at my school because it exposed me to medical injuries in high stress situations. Even though I was working with an athletic trainer and loving it, I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do; I switched from wanting to be a pediatrician to an oncologist and then an orthopedic surgeon. I settled on becoming an OBGYN because I had just watched my sister give birth to her son. I thought that delivering babies had to be the most important job because I’d be taking care of new life.
The reason is that I think with experience, you gain knowledge and untimely I want someone who has the experience and the knowledge. I also do not want someone who is doing my check for the first time. If that physician has found new treatment (s), I want to make sure that they have done the correct treatment and have the adequate amount of experience in order to do my treatment. The experience could involve, being a guest speaker at medicals school or medical conferences. The reason behind these two places is that, at medical school you are inspiring the youth who aspires to be a medical doctor.
Ever since I was young, my parents have wanted me to pursue a career in medicine. I was not very happy as it was not a career I enjoyed, and it took lots of studying. It eventually became too stressful as my strenuous efforts toward my parents’ goal were not paying off. My parents stopped pressuring me as it was
Last year, my Osteopathic application was made in haste and was submitted as a back up plan to failing Allopathic applications. As a part of completing the primary application and also preparing for Osteopathic interviews, I discovered that the Osteopathic philosophy appeared to be a better fit for me. Shadowing an Osteopathic physician as well as an Allopathic physician has solidified this observation. Last year’s failed attempt to gain entry to medical school has been soul crushing and has forced me to consider other career paths. During this period, I have examined many options.
The ad read "Dental assistant needed. No experience necessary". After one year of thoroughly enjoying a new career, I decided I wanted to pursue dental hygiene school, where my desire to study medicine began. While excelling in my classes, I often considered switching my field of study to medicine because as much as I learned in each class, I wanted to know even more. However, at that time, my lack of confidence and guidance prevented me from changing direction.
