Interview Narrative Imagine being in hospital room with a patient in critical condition, only minutes to live and you hear the flat line. Madelynn Varnado is faced with this possibility each day. Today we got personal insight on the life of a doctor in training. Madelynn Varnado is a former French Settlement High School graduate, she took time out of her very busy schedule to come to our 7th hour English 1 class for a interview by out students. Madelynn had always wanted be a doctor since she was little.
She has demonstrated her knowledge of nursing by receiving her education and working with others in healthcare. I look forward to being like her one day and pursue my dreams, just like Angie did. Motivation is key throughout this whole process. I have always wanted to be a nurse since day one. Seeing my father battle sickness for almost fourteen years confirmed my decision.
“Chiquita, I believe in you and you will do fabulous.” “Okay Ginny, you are right but it has been two and half years since I have demonstrated bed side nursing.” Ginny instructed to level the bed to be able to conduct a head to toe assessment. “What were the reasons you chose to become a Trauma Nurse?” Chiquita asks. Ginny replies “because I have compassion as well as advocate for the patients that come into the facility.” “I believe in giving each and every patient the fighting chance they deserve in order to survive.” “You will achieve GG” Chiquita continues to brace her smile. “is that why you decided to leave Riverside? So you could come over here to achieve your goal to become a Trauma nurse?” Ginny replied in an exciting tone “of course, do not get me wrong I enjoyed every moment at Riverside but I feel I could become a better nurse at Sentra, besides Sentra is the only level one trauma hospital in the region.” “I completely understand,” Chiquita responds.
Joalexis Nursing Professional Development Plan Introduction While attending high school I always wanted to work in the healthcare field. I completed an emergency medical technician program at Valencia College. I started working at Florida Hospital Orlando (FHO) as a psychiatric technician in their behavioral health unit. While working at FHO I meet many nurses, I saw what they did, and desire grew on me to become a registered nurse. The path into becoming a registered nurse was a very confusing process for me because there are three entry levels of nursing, the bachelors science nursing (BSN) degree route, the associate degree (AD) route, and the diploma in nursing, which is basically a hospital based nursing school (Black, 2010, p. 60).
Nursing was never a choice I had thoroughly thought about to become my career in the future. However, when I had the chance to work as a Certified Nurse Assistant, that was my definition or the image I had with a nurse. Nursing seems like a nice job, especially when being able to talk with the patients one on one and having more time than a physician to know the patient. The Host, Takisha, was an RN who graduated from Michigan State University. I loved the way she greeted each of her patients with a smile
I thought I knew what career path I wanted for my future, with that in mind, I sought a degree in Fitness and Human Performance to continue with a career in Occupational Therapy. In this career choice, the way I got to help patients was through therapy. While taking classes, I realized Occupational Therapy is not what I truly was passionate about. I decided to take my mother’s advice and choose what I truly love to do, which is to help people all around and I believe the nursing program would be the best fit. I am currently completing my certified nurse program to proceed with a job as a patient care technician.
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.
LCTA Typed Essay Though there have been many experiences that have shaped my life, the one that stands out in my mind is when my grandmother had a stroke. I was with my grandmother when the stroke hit and this experience has profoundly changed my view of life and the world and has taught me many valuable lessons. One way this has affected my development is that I now have an extreme appreciation and respect of medical professionals, everyone from surgeons to nurses to emergency medical technicians. Without their help and collective effort, my grandmother would not be here today. This dedication and persistence to ensuring excellent medical care has inspired me to go into nursing, so that I may give back like these medical professionals gave
My Future Career, Nurse Practitioner A nurse practitioner is a nurse with a graduate degree in advanced practice nursing. When I was little I always said I wanted to become a nurse practitioner. It was something about being able to help patients overcome their illnesses that interested me the most. It always seemed like it was the perfect profession for me because I am a people’s person. The required education is to have a Master’s degree.
I trust that my philosophy of nursing will have a positive impact on my clients as my goal is to consistently provide competent, safe nursing care to all which is culturally safe. As I enter my final semester of nursing, I look forward to new nursing opportunities and to apply my nursing philosophy with each new experience. My goal as a nurse is to grow and learn each day, knowing that each day will provide me with new knowledge making me a better nurse than the day before, and becoming a better nurse the following day than the previous day. Nursing is an exciting, fulfilling, and respected profession which I am very fortunate to be a part of and look forward to the journey
