I decided to develop a career in nursing due to the exceptional FCC that I have received at the BC Children 's Hospital as a patient. The HCPs treated me and my family with respect, actively listened to and addressed my concerns and incorporated my family into my care. The concepts of the PCC were introduced to me in nursing school and I was passionate about PCC and have tried to implement relevant concepts while having my clinical practicum in adult acute care settings. I found that due to the high patients to nurse ratio and the inadequate time management skill I possessed, it was challenging to build a good rapport with patients and provide individualized PCC to them. The concept of FCC was introduced to me as the standard of pediatric health care during the preparation course of this preceptorship and it immediately drew my attention.
Reflection Qualities that make an effective nursing leader are the same qualities that many other nursing staff and general public possess. Such as, the ability to support and empower their team members, be well organized, remain consistent with their expectations, and be able to communicate with their team. Support and empower the team members An example of this quality is a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) on one of the units at Wascana Rehabilitation Center (WRC), where I had one of my clinical rotations. This nurse would ask each staff member if they had any concerns during their daily huddles. Particular case that was discussed for a few days was regarding a patient’s family member (distant) who would visit every Tuesday and steal patient’s
The experience I gained here encouraged me to apply for the Higher Diploma in Midwifery. During my time as a student midwife I cared for a number of bereaved parents and while it was a challenging experience I found it to be very rewarding also. Student midwives are offered the opportunity to complete a one week elective placement during their training program. I elected to spend a week with the clinical midwife specialist in bereavement and gained a wealth of knowledge from observing her practice during that week. Following the completion of the Higher Diploma in Midwifery I worked in the labour ward of the National Maternity Hospital.
Throughout the last three years, I have worked with the elderly in a nursing home called Aase Haugen as a certified nursing assistant. Since then, I have gained a tremendous amount of respect for registered nurses. Their leadership, passion, and commitment has inspired me to provide great health care to patients now and in my future career as a nurse. I am currently a freshman that has been accepted into the nursing program at Luther College. I think I would be a good candidate for this scholarship, because I put a tremendous amount of heart into my job and truly enjoying helping and assisting the elderly.
Yet, through the many years of consistent research and hit and missed occurrences, the nurses adopted Evidenced-based practice into their scope of practice. Through this method patients and healthcare workers are ensured that the best practices are followed pertaining to selected health problems. EBP is part of the nursing profession because it promotes safe and quality care for patients and their families based on reliable, proven studies. What are the roots/evolution of EBP in nursing? Before EBP was imbedded into healthcare, nurses relied in the advice of senior nurses and what they learned through education and trial and error.
The best thing I had accomplishment in high school is doing my 200 over hours in the Mercy Medical Hospital. Doing this was a big accomplishment because I learned how to communicate with the people in the community and also I had also learned new things on how to take care of the patients their to make them feel comfortable while they where their. How I earned these hours was by going once a week and doing four hours and I help people locate where they need to go and I also go to the floors and help them get their things ready when they are about to get discharged. Also, when I was able to work on the weekend and during my breaks I had done eight hours each day I took the extra hours to show that I am capable that I wanna help the people
I chose nursing specifically because I love the idea of taking care of people, and nurses make a huge difference and have such an impact on the patients and their loved ones lives. In my junior year, I went to Butler hospital to shadow one of the nurses that worked there. During her shift, she was always busy and working hard in order to take care of all her patients. The thought of working hard
Collaboration with your interdisciplinary team in nursing. Why collaboration is important to provide high quality and safe patient care Nursing in the last 20 years has changed dramatically. Even as a young licensed Practical Nurse I knew that being able to communicate with my fellow interdisciplinary team was going to be highly important. Not only for the care of the patients and their families, but to also gather the needed information to stay up to date on all changes in the facet of the healthcare industry. From my experience, you get most of your updates and need to know information from other nursing employees and through word of mouth.
Over the last ten years of working within the health care sector I’ve worked closely with mental health nurses, listening to their personal experiences in a wide variety of settings. Extensive research, work experience and personal experiences of mental health issues such as my son’s recent diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder has inspired me to pursue a mental health nursing qualification. Mental health nursing promotes and highlights relevant skills that I have acquired over the years that are crucial in this role. Courage to trust my own judgement and competence to make decisions in often highly stressful situations has lead me to be promoted to team leader at work. This position requires me to administer medications and undertake audits, update and make evaluations within care plans and build collaborative partnerships between various healthcare professionals.
I discovered that they are in the healthcare field because they truly have a passion for helping others and that is when I realized I too want to spend my life helping people. I have respected healthcare professionals since I was young and through this experience I have an even greater respect for them. I am drawn to nurses especially for they left a warm impact on me when I visited the hospital often during my childhood. I greatly admire nurses for their dedication, patience, and care, and I believe they make a big impact in a healthcare environment. Every patient before they leave the clinic always thank the volunteers who are not healthcare professionals with a big smile, the
