With almost 15 years of experience of working in an acute hospital has been rewarding for me and the benefit of showing empathy has further reinforced my desire to pursue a registered nurse degree . My love for children that are helpless and unable to take care of themselves especially during illness , has further stimulated my desire for becoming a registered nurse . The premature birth to my daughter , coupled with my work experience caring for the sick and needy people have solidified my desire to peruse a career in Registered Nursing even more . My clinical exposure has also allowed me to mature as a person . Even though working with the sick can be challenging at times , it is infinitely gratifying .
I chose to interview someone that I have looked up to and has been an inspiring role model for deciding to pursue a career in nursing. I have known Phyllis Czarnecki, for six years now, however, I was never familiar with the details of her career as a registered nurse. This interview gave me more respect for Mrs. Czarnecki by giving me a better understanding of the path she has taken to be where she is now. I have always known the general idea of a nurse's responsibilities, however, this interview allowed me to learn the personal opinions and a specific job of a registered nurse. Phyllis realized, as a teenager, she wanted to become a nurse when her mom was hospitalized and undergoing surgery.
Making a difference I started my health care career as a nursing assistant at the young age of 16 years-old perusing the dream of one day becoming a nurse. At that time, I really had no idea what I was getting myself into and what it meant to be in the health care. I have been able to touch and impact so many different people’s lives throughout the last 6 years from patients and residents to their family members. Sometimes not even realizing that I was changing someone’s life. Although I’ve helped hundreds of people there is one person that will I will always remember.
Nurse Practitioner, professional health care I wish to pursue because of, caring for people,getting paid a lot, working a set schedule. I have been interested in being a Nurse Practitioner for about a year or two2. I have always had an interest in the medical field,but being a nurse really hooked me, because they are always in need and they are payed well. Being a nurse practitioner has a huge amount of duties some are easy and fun and some are difficult and stressful, you might deal with a tragic injury.(“Common Work Activities”1). This part of the job I feel I would dog good with because I am very good in a crisis.

The first day I stepped onto the floor, I felt overwhelmed and I questioned myself if I was meant for this line of work. I was assigned 14 patients. Soon after interacting with all my patients, my perspective and doubts changed. After leaving for college; I started my college days as a full time pre-nursing student. I continued to work as a CNA and
During this time, I noticed the difference in care provided between the doctor and the nurse. The nurse offered a more trusting relationship, emphasized the use of holistic care, and provided empathy, which was much appreciated. Thereafter, I began volunteering at Lowell General Hospital and experienced my own interpersonal relationships with the outpatients. I felt truly satisfied during my time there, as I was able to apply my values and experience the gratitude and warmth that radiated from each patient that I helped. Therefore, I chose to pursue a career in nursing, as it is similarly based on my own beliefs and makes me feel like I make a difference in the lives of every person that
As a nursing student, I have a grasp on what nursing is through textbooks and lectures. The more I learn about this profession, the more I learn about what my philosophy is. Although I haven’t gained clinical experience as a nurse, I have gained some clinical experience as a nurse assistant that helps me administer patient care while acquiring knowledge working under the supervision of nurses. This experience helps me to become knowledgeable on what their roles and responsibilities are, and it has inspired me that I hope when I graduate, to equal their skill, diligence and passion.
My Intent to Be a Nurse Practitioner Coming from a third world country where there aren’t many opportunities for work and funding for education, proceding to nursing school was a grand opportunity. The privilege to attend a government subsidized school where top students in the region compete to get into the program that allowed only 60 students per year was indeed a blessing. As clinical rotations began, what was once considered a mere opportunity evolved into a true passion for caring as I truly love and enjoy nursing and helping people.
I was fortunate to be able to observe academic education of nursing students at DeSales University. This education was held in a classroom setting on Mondays and Wednesdays. My observation time was 16 hours in which I observed Alyssa Robertson prepare for class, prepare exams, give lectures, provide hands on education, assist students in learning, and provide support to students. I also observed many student interactions and learning techniques. The learners were NU 220 Pharmacology and NU 230 Therapeutic Nursing Interventions students.
The school taught hospital and home care nurses how to teach other nurses. She was aware of the poor reputation of nurses and sought out to change the image of nursing. To improve overall conditions for nurses, she began working relationships with philanthropists, journalists, law makers, and administrators so that patient care would improve and respectable women would be drawn to the profession. Using her strong voice and determination, she fought constantly for healthcare reform for all individuals and sought for an improvement in health standards focusing on cleanliness and
For this week’s discussion I chose to write scenario 12 Nurse- Nurse. I really believe that being in preceptor’s role makes all the difference in new nurses’ life and it can also be very rewarding. By precepting we can be role models in our nursing professional. “It seems natural and obvious that all nurses, given their education, would share similar values and beliefs about patient care” (Porter-O’Grady & Malloch, 2016, p211). Preparing students and new nurses to transition from being new to the field and help them to achieve competency and proficiency is still remain concern in our hospital or work area.
Introduction: As a first year student I have very specific goals in mind that I hope to achieve through my work in college. My main hopes for the future are that I pass all of my exams in the coming years, graduate and receive my honours degree in general nursing, become a registered nurse and finally get a job as a nurse. Throughout this essay, I have detailed my strengths and the opportunities that will help me finalise these goals along with my weaknesses and the threats that will hinder my progress. Strengths:
