As I reflect on my medication pass, I not only realize the lessons I learned, but also the things I will take with me with me for a lifetime. This was quite the experience of learning and lessons to become a registered nurse, so as I began my day, I began by looking up my patient’s medication. I would be passing in the MAR – on the computer. This is where I proceeded to check for allergies (medicine and relevant food), this should be done every time you give a medication. The instructor said ok are you ready?
It took me a while to find nurses that wanted to participate in my interview. I was able to interview 2 nurses at a medical center because this week at my private practice, with the help of an Ecuadorian Audiologist who has ABR/ASSR system, we had a Microtia week from all over Bolivia and one of the mother’s was a nurse assistant, she made the contact with her boss and I was able to interview both, yesterday. (NP: nurse practitioner and NA: auxiliary nurse- MARIA) 1) What motivated you to become a nurse? NP:
Deciding that I wanted to be a level one neonatal nurse, I knew who to talk to. I have a cousin that was going to school for the same thing that I wanted to do about two years ago. She was considered to be my motivation. Anytime there was a family function, she was always there with her books, studying. She was honest with me about the medical field, that it would be hard and that you always had to be focused.
My personal perception of nursing is an occupation that requires lots of love, patience, empathy, care for others, dedication and skills. A nurse is the one that stays by his/her patients’ side as they are experiencing pain or even death. Nurses do more than bathing the patients or offering them pain medications. They are there to provide comfort and emotionally connect with their patients. When I was young, I was hospitalized for appendicitis.
During some down time around the office at Headquarters, I decided to ask my field instructor if she would answer some questions for me for this assignment, and she graciously accepted. I already knew a lot about her background and job as a social worker, both from a clinical and administrative standpoint (since she also does therapy in addition to her Headquarters work), but it was fun to hear her stories again and even learn a few new details along the way. My field instructor, Kristin, is a social worker who received her MSW from KU. As I mentioned earlier, she does clinical work in a private practice she has with her mom, which means several times a week her clients will come to Headquarters for therapy sessions, and sometimes she will
She suggested it would be a great fit for my professional aspirations. Shadowing her and asking in depth questions to her students in the AGNP program, further affirmed my ability and commitment to compete in the rigorous curriculum. After researching the role of an AGNP and FNP, I learned that now more than ever before, there is a strong reliance on Nurse practitioners for patient care management. For these reasons, I wish to become an Adult Gerontology or Family Nurse Practitioner. I am thankful for my experience as an STNA and Restorative Aide at Darby Glenn in addition to my time at UD.
I also do well in math and science classes, and science classes, in particular, are extremely interesting to me. What sparked my interest in becoming a Physician Assistant was my sister. She has been studying to become a PA and has enjoyed it. I can continue to learn about this career by talking to my sister about all that she is learning and asking her about what it is like. Also, I can keep doing research on Physician Assistants in any way that I can to keep educating myself on the career.
I am interested in your New Graduate Nurse Residency Program. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing from the University of Massachusetts Boston and recently obtained my MA RN license in August 2015. I choose to be an RN because I love learning about the anatomy and physiology of the human body and working with people. When I was a little girl, I would watch the Discovery Health channel instead of watching cartoons. In high school, I became interested in social justice work when I did a month long volunteer service trip to India.
Today, I am glad I choose nursing because I have overcome my social fears, learn to be a team player, learn how to prioritize and most importantly learned to manage stress. Lastly, I grew as a nurse with each semester because I learned how to respect and treat each patient as a unique individual. I have also learned to put my patient safety as my priority and provide presence because I realized through my clinical experience that, sometimes that all the patients need. Below is the breakdown of how I have developed each semester in nursing school. FALL 2013 • Foundations of Nursing: NUR 2310
I reviewed the degree plans at Eastern New Mexico University (ENMU) and came across social work. I researched social work and discovered this was a better career path to serve and help make a difference on a small or larger scale. My professional background in the medical field began when I became a nurse’s assistant at sixteen. During my time at the nursing home, I grew fond of working with geriatrics. My empathy developed healthy and quickly as I became friends with the residents who did not have visitors.
I have wanted to go into the health care field for as long as I can remember. My mom is a register nurse and I always wanted to be just like her. It always fascinated me learning about the body and how it works. I love to help people, love getting to do something new everyday, and I love a fast paced environment. Making a difference in people 's lives makes a person feel so good and being a nurse I could do that everyday!
Giving me the abilty to use it to further my education, would help me greatly. The gift of having the ability to take an extra class to further my career or being able to use some of the scholarship for room an bored would allow me to focus harder on gaining every bit of knowledge I can. After obtaining my degree in nursing with full intentions of pursuing it through Saint Paul College. I plan on pursuing a(n) fellowship/internship at United Childrens Hospital. With the hopes of becoming a Registered Nurse I will continue to further educate myself in my field after graduation.
I am an experienced professional Geriatric Nursing Assistant/ Certified Nursing Assistant/ Certified Medical Technologist with a personal commitment to quality patient care, appropriate teamwork, and an uncompromising duty to take care for those in need. I have been working for the past two and a half years and I love my job. I work with passion, am punctual, and reliable at all time. I am a team player to come with the best care
I just completed my Bachelor of Science in Nursing and look forward to exploring nursing theory, evidence-based practice and leadership even further in the advance practice curriculum. I am pursuing family nurse practitioner because it will allow me to be more versatile in my nursing skills and serve a larger patient population. There has been a focus on primary care medicine since the Affordable Care Act; resulting in a larger need for nurse practitioners required to care for this patient population. I have been granted an opportunity to advance my career and I am more than ready to take on the added responsibilities and handle treatment plans autonomously, as well as learning additional skills such as diagnosing and prescribing medications. By obtaining my graduate level education my clinical judgment would be enhanced to improve safety, quality of care and patient outcomes substantially.
Beth Israel School of Nursing Admissions Department: I am overjoyed that I finally have come to this point in my life where I am ready to take this next step in my career. I have decided to apply for the nursing program at Beth Israel because of the size of the school and the convenience of having it close to my house. I come from a small town in North Carolina and feeling a personal connection with the teachers and classmates is very important to me. In other universities, I would feel lost trying to figure out who to talk to about my concerns. I would love to have a close relationship with my professors and feel the same support I have from my family.
