I have chosen Biology as my major of choice because of my interest in biology classes in the past. Throughout my high school career, I have tried taking a wide variety of classes in order to truly understand what my passion is. After taking a wide variety of classes, I discovered that I was deeply intrigued by subjects involving biology and medicine. I am looking to go to school as a biology major, however, I think I would like to further my education in medical school so that I can pursue a career in medicine. In my family, there is a multitude of people currently working in the medical field including my parents.
Even though the job merely entailed answering phone calls and bringing ice water to patients, I thoroughly enjoyed what I was doing. With the support of the Allied Health sponsor, I applied to be a medical science student at the University of Louisiana at Monroe President’s Academy the following summer. Through this program, I participated in college-level labs and professional externships specifically tailored for students with my interests. I was challenged to apply the knowledge I learned through solving a hypothetical pandemic with a group of other students. This experience showed me that I do have what it takes to be successful in the medical
I attended nursing school and earned an LPN license, but I was determined to get my BSN. I knew nursing school would not be cheap, so I looked for a job as a patient care tech in a hospital. I knew I wanted to work someday in a hospital. I found a job on a pediatric floor and fell in love with my new job. This floor also has a special hall just for cancer patients.
Ever since I was little i wanted to do something that would help other people. I wanted to be a nurse, doctor, pediatrician, and even a veterinarian. This last year I’ve begun to actually get serious about what I want to do, that way I could take classes in High School that will benefit my career choice. As I started researching my career of choice a Sports Physician caught my eye. A Sports Physician cares for people with sports injuries.
Ever since I was young I was adamant to be a pediatric nurse. More than half the women in my life were nurses, so naturally, I grew up always wanting to be one. It wasn’t until I met Maria Wydra that I even considered a career in psychology. I had always been fond of my psychology classes but I never thought much about making it a career for myself. When the class was instructed to interview someone that’s career was of interest to us I thought of Maria right away.
My skills and interest reflect those of a Registered Nurse and I have what it takes to be an exceptional Nurse. I have strong communication and interpersonal skills. I am and have been for years, fascinated by anatomy and physiology. I have great communication, understanding, and multitasking skills and I love assisting people in any way that I can. I love being in the Student Athletic Training Program at school
Thank you for taking the time to review my personal statement on why I have chosen to embark on the journey to become a Physician Assistant. My story started several years ago, more than I care to count, when I stumbled into the health care world as a paramedic in rural Pennsylvanian. While in high school, I became friends with several other students who were actively volunteering with a local fire department. After hearing their stories about the things they were learning and doing I also joined a volunteer fire department, mostly out of curiosity. Over the course of a couple of years I discovered that the challenges that I encountered during training and responding to emergencies had unlocked some unrealized, more like unknown, drive inside
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
When I contemplate why I want to pursue a career in the medical field, I picture my high school allied health class where my enthusiasm for the field first started and I became a Certified Nursing Assistant. I have been around hospitals and doctor’s growing up, but that class opened my eyes to a new world. To learn extensive amounts about the healthcare field and have the opportunity to gain clinical experience has no comparison, to be able to learn hands on at that age, and know that I wanted to care for patients. To see all those elderly residents, to experience helping them and showing them compassion, it made my day, every day I was there. The fact that I can do two things I love, learning new things and helping people get better excites
There are many personal experiences I can relate to nursing. For example my high school classes and my job. My classes consist of A.P chemistry and advanced math, which is highly beneficial for nursing. Chemistry is essential for nursing because it is important to get a basic understanding on how thing become the way they are. My current job I work for as a caretaker; taking care of residents.
Pediatricians work with public policy makers to advocate for children and their families.They teach children and their families. They also teach medical students and residents.Each pediatrician is different.On average, pediatricians work about 50 hours per week.But they also spend another 4 hours per week helping the community through education, schools and government, professional group activities or providing free medical care to the needy.Pediatricians are licensed by the states they practice in. Each state has different rules.Most states make pediatricians pass 3 national tests for all doctors in the United States (called the United States Medical Licensing Examinations).Most hospitals also make them pass the American Board of Pediatrics Certifying Examination at the end of their 3 years of general pediatric training. This is called "passing the boards." A pediatrician who has passed is called "board-certified."
As a child, I would dream that I was Charles Drew, who started the first Blood Bank to operate in the United States that saved thousands of lives. I also would dream I was Vivien Thomas, who designed a shunt that would surgically solve the blue baby syndrome. These stories were very important to me because they instilled the belief that I too could become a medical professional. Furthermore, I had the opportunity to shadow various medical professionals in our community and experience what they did on a day-to-day basis. The information my parents exposed me to, coupled with my belief in God guided me
Watching my mothers work inspired me. During my 7th and 8th grade year of junior high school, I began babysitting my little cousinson weekends. I would also get paid for watching them. From then I knew what I wanted to study when I graduate high school, which is pediactrics. As a nurse I want to help children specifically.
In his weekends he would always spend his time volunteering in different places like daycares, nursing homes, or volunteer work through his clubs. His senior year he spent it working in a biology lab working with Beta Cells. Once he graduated he had a 3.4 GPA. After that, he applied to a nursing program in order to become a registered nurse. In order to have a better chance of being accepted into the program, he retook several classes which were prerequisites for nursing school that summer.
