My teachers have pushed me to achieve my dreams with high expectations and interesting and useful lessons and without their presence in my life, I would not have achieved all that I have now. My grandmother’s stroke was the catalyst and along with these four years and especially my science and math courses have lead me into a career in medicine and
People understandably put a huge amount of trust in their physicians. However, Scrabanek (Skrabanek, 1994) speaks of the ridiculous recommendations by doctors for women between the ages of 20 and 70… “According to the American college of physicians, she should visit her doctor annually and have 278 examinations, tests and counselling sessions. Not that this is recommended for a healthy woman.” If women feel that they are under pressure to see their doctor and have those many tests annually, or they see other women in their age bracket receiving confirmation of ill health, they may feel obliged to spend copious amounts of money of visiting their GP every single year. This therefore will cause huge financial stress and in turn lead the doctor to prescribe medicine for this, yet another ailment. Secondly, due to the fact that she may visit her GP this many times every year, she will be continuously awaiting test results and if the doctor suggests that something may be wrong, she will again, worry.
I took a nursing assistant class through a dual enrollment program. I performed clinical hours at Golden Living Center in Rome, Georgia for CNA training. I took this class not because I wanted to become a nurse but because this was the only healthcare class left that I had not taken. I did not want to go senior year without taking a class in healthcare because I did not want to forget important skills that I had learned in prior classes. This class taught me a lot about the medical field.
Working in different settings and meeting new people that need to be taken care of has always interested me.

One of my most important lifetime goals is to become a CRNA. A CRNA is an advanced registered nurse who has a board certification in anesthesia. Becoming a CRNA is very hard work and requires a lot of dedication and experience. As long as I can remember, it has always been clear to me that I want a job in the medical field. As soon as I entered high school, I started taking all the “medical” and science classes, such as principles of health science, that were required in order to take a CNA program, which is a certified nursing assistant, during my senior year.
This year, my willingness to take on a new challenge of enrolling in the Certified Nursing Assistant course at Wenatchee Valley College has helped mold me into a motivated self-disciplined individual. This year, I took on the challenge of enrolling in Wenatchee Valley College’s Running Start program. One of my most challenging classes at the college to-date has been the eight-credit certified nursing assistant class I applied to. This is a program specific class that required hours of application work along with multiple doctor’s examinations to gain admittance to. Only a limited number of applicants were allowed to take this class and I am happy to say I was able to be one of them.
My First Patient Nursing school allowed me to experience many meaningful moments in clinical from seeing a birth and being part of the happiest moment of families to witnessing the hardest goodbyes to love ones. The experience that stands out the most out of all of the interaction with patient is when I met my very first patient. My very first clinical day at the hospital during my first semester of nursing school, I got to see what I had only heard about or read about during lecture, but perhaps never seen or experience through anyone I know. I got to see a patient who was severely confused. This patient had what medically is known as “delirium”, although I cannot recall exactly what other medical problem this patient had, but I can
Growing up as a young girl I was always told that my attitude was perfect for me to become a lawyer – I never lost an argument. I took the advice and I ran with it. I boasted about becoming a lawyer. I started to research the various types of lawyers, their median salaries and the amount of years it would take me in school and to advance in my practice. Although I was focused on pursuing a career in the law I was also intrigued by the medical field.
A School where you are surrounded by people of all ages, you are taught by real college professors and have to take responsibility for yourself. This was a huge step for me, along the way I fumbled and sort of slipped of track, but my devotion for my dream of attending college and entering the health profession pulled me right back on tract. My whole life I have been devoted to education and striving to do better. My strive for bettering myself and reaching my goals and dreams will never stop, no matter
The doors that have opened since I decided to attend Texas A&M are those which I would have never came into contact with if I had failed to believe in myself as well as the Aggies who were immediate to congratulate me when I did.I stepped onto this campus with aspirations of being a Nurse one day, with dreams of nurturing those in need of my assistance whenever needed, in clinics and hospitals. Nevertheless, one semester later, I see myself studying abroad one day, representing our school in more than just medical settings, and hoping one day I can give back to this school, if it 's in scholarships, research, or knowledge, what they invested in a small Aggie
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.
