In the hospital the nurses are at the fore front of coordination and can easily classify the workers into the various teams that suit them. The various departments in the hospital have to work together in harmony to be able to meet the patient’s needs, making sure all resources are put in place for effective care of the patients and functioning of the hospital.

Browne (2015) says that films and movies shows the importance of doctors and nurses in all aspects of genre and life. It shows that doctors and nurses are the basics of health care structure. Of course, many other medical professionals, such as pharmacist, midwifes and therapist are working in the health care industry, but the majority of diagnosis and patient care are executed by doctors and nurses. Physicians noticeably have more education than nurses, as always shown on films and movies, and that’s the reason why they can prescribe medication and prescription, but subject on the health care scenario, there can be a significant connection on the responsibilities and task of doctors and nurses. According to Ebert (1990) about the movie “The Awakenings” directed by Penny Marshall, it tells about the story of a new doctor (Robin Williams) who comes to work in the hospital.

Personal Statement Essay While working as a nurse at GHI Hospital, I had a chance to receive my first professional experience and knowledge connected to the nursing sector. In the medical institution I saw a lot of people suffering from different diseases. When they looked at me, I felt I had to help them. So, I remember this feeling all the time and it is great to realize that I am able to do that. Providing professional medical service is of great importance, but, to my mind, the most valuable thing especially in the healthcare sphere is kindness and sympathy to all patients without exception.
Advanced practice nurses (APN) have a vital role in the future of health care, especially since the enactment of the Affordable Health Care Act. With more citizens having health insurance coverage they will be seeking health care providers, and there are not enough physicians to care for them all. According to Letiziam (2014), advance practice nurses are licensed autonomous health care providers that have been trained to evaluate, diagnose, and treat patients and their conditions. Advanced practice nursing is an umbrella that covers four separate roles of nurses, this includes: the certified nurse midwife (CNM), certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA), certified nurse practitioner (CNP), and certified nurse specialist (CNS).
This caused a strained relationship with doctors and patients and patients didn’t want to receive care anymore. The government tried to solve the problem by enacting “the Kerr-Mills Act of 1960 to provide medical indigence for beneficiaries” (Stevens, 1996). The elderly in America celebrated the fact that the government was meeting their expectations. They had access to quality health care and a program to help with medical fees.

I would like to see why this is the case and understand how inequality is created in the healthcare field. This inequality has continued to sustain itself in the past 100 years and produces large differences in health outcomes between people. Part of the answer lies in what we as a society value and do not value. Looking at structure shows us the value a country places on healthcare and we see that in the United States, it is highly capitalistic and economic based. The United States is unique in that it is the biggest spender on healthcare yet other countries have better health outcomes according to the commonwealth fund (Davis, Stremikis, Schoen, Squires,
Within this occupation individuals have the ability to prescribe medicine, diagnose and treat mental illnesses, give immunizations as well as perform various other tasks. Many often confuse this type of practice with nurse practitioners which led Mrs. Hughes to distinguish the difference between the two professions.

Usually the medication advertised has more problems than the condition it is treating. In addition, advertisements have changed the doctor-patient relationship. DTC advertising has changed the way doctors and patients communicate for worse. Naomi Freundlich writes in her article about medication advertisements: “Fewer than 10% of physicians believe direct-to-consumer advertising (DTCA) is a positive trend in health care. Doctors report that they now spend more time explaining to patients why an expensive new drug is no better than the one they already take, or that the patient isn 't suffering from a nebulous condition like fibromyalgia, just the normal aches and pains of aging.” This pressures physicians to prescribe when patients come in requesting a particular newer (not necessarily better), more expensive medication by name.
