For the last two years, I have been volunteering in Mackenzie Willamette’s emergency department. I helped around and talked to a lot of people in the medical profession and I observed how they communicated with each other. I saw the benefits of good communication and how it can positively improve the work environment. And I saw how negative communication can distract from what really matters; providing safe and reliable care for the patients. So coming into this project I wanted to take what I had observed and
I saw at first-hand the impact of diseases including, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, but more importantly, I witnessed the impact of empathy and good care had on a patient and their families. This experience helped me learn how to overcome challenges faced when caring for patients each day and it reinforced my motivation to work as hard as possible to succeed in nursing school and continue to work to care for others. The experience also provided an opportunity to act as leader since the assisted care home I worked at this past summer was understaffed due to a change in ownership and some staff changes. When my team was short caregivers, I made sure that I spent more time with each patient to ensure they did not have anxiety about the change and end up worried and feeling alone. I found that a few minutes of companionship and
(Learn.org 2016) they begin an extensive training course that can range from 800 to over 1,500 hours. The course allows for a person to significantly increase their mastery in basic skills learned during the basic EMT course as well as increase knowledge in Advanced Life Support (ALS) which include topics such as pharmacology and toxicology. Lectures will generally be presented by the medical director in charge of the particular institution teaching ALS or possibly a doctor, nurse, or paramedic instructor. Clinical sessions are conducted in a similar manner with the student being supervised by a doctor or nurse generally in a hospital setting. Once a student completes the necessary coursework they must pass a practical and written exam in order to become a certified
In this writing assignment; I will elaborate on how bridging the generation gap in the fire service is important for our fire department’s morale, culture, and well-being. I will share my own personal experiences on why I decided to join the fire service and share what I have learned from my mentors who’ve helped me through my journey so far. I will also reflect on what I have learned and experienced over the past year as a rookie firefighter. I chose this topic for my final writing assignment because I personally feel like I would be able to relate more to the topic since I’ve been exposed to the fire department lifestyle since I was born. Bridging the generation gap in the fire service between the guys who’ve been in for years compared to
By continuing to partake in the Quality Assurance program and self-regulating, behaviours can fulfill the standard of being “safe, competent and ethical practitioners” (CNO, 2014, pp. 3). Setting of First Year of RN Practice The ideal setting of my first year of practice, as an RN will be at the Juravinski Hospital in the hematology unit. I have always known that I wanted to work in oncology and my placement on the hematology unit solidified my decision to pursue this goal. During a clinical shift, I would be responsible for providing care to patients with malignant hematological diseases, completing pertinent assessments and teaching skills, such as how to care for the mouth when experiencing mucositis and how to avoid infections.

I took a cadaver class last year where we reviewed what we had learned from previous anatomy and physiology classes. The professor of that class is a general surgeon at St. Luke’s Hospital, and he showed us how to do certain medical procedures while we got to practice using the cadaver. We dissected the cadaver as well as learned to suture. That class was by far my favorite class I’ve taken since I’ve been in college, and it made me feel very excited for my future working in the medical
I eventually found a job at the health services that suited my interest in being part of a healthcare setting. Currently, I work as a clerk receptionist at the University Health Services Manoa where my responsibilities include general clerical duties, health clearances for incoming students, checking in patients, and answering patient inquiries. Working at this facility has expanded my knowledge on dealing with health insurances, performing exceptional customer service, and learning about a variety of health
Nursing is a hard profession; as well as, a very rewarding profession. Nursing is not only the skills you learn in school, such as, putting in an IV, pathophysiology or assessment of the patient, but it also requires empathy and compassion. This career is not for everyone. What persuaded me to become a nurse is when I was four years old I was diagnosed with Leukemia ALL, this changed my life for the next three years, while I was getting treatment for my cancer. I would be around nurses and doctors twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week during this time.
My Future as a Nurse Practitioner 1 Take a moment to imagine yourself in a hospital or a clinic. Have you ever wondered who is taking care of almost all of the patients in a medical facility, all at the same time? That person is a nurse practitioner, or an NP. Besides administering medication, treatments, diagnosing patients, and performing small outpatient surgeries, it is an NP’s job to treat all of their patients with love and care. Doing this makes their patients feel like family, so they will trust their NP to properly care for them.
I am very interested in the position as a Registered Nurse for the Medical Oncology Infusion clinic available on the Memorial Hospital of Gulfport website. As a dedicated Registered Nurse with a 30-year span of experience, I believe I would be an asset for this position and the clinic team. My work experience includes Medical/Surgical nursing at acute care setting, a busy Ambulatory Clinic for three surgeons for two years, 10 years at Outpatient Surgery Center, three years as a Community Outreach Cancer nurse and much more. My skill sets are the strong ability to assess patients using the nursing process and principles, knowledge of the many procedures and protocols, proficient with using clinic equipment, multitasking to meet patients and family needs, to think critically during procedures and in emergencies, and interpreting and following instructions from the physicians. As the Community Outreach Cancer nurse, I have knowledge and understanding for the need of quality patient education, my position required that I take over the teaching of patients and families about Chemotherapy treatments when a Chemotherapy nurse was not available.
From the Kaiser Permanente career website, I was delighted to learn about the RN I position at Kaiser Permanente Oakland Medical Center in the Medical Telemetry Department. Kaiser Permanente is a leader in our nation’s healthcare system and has the standard for promoting wellness and disease prevention in our communities. As a result, I am excited about the possibility of being part an organization that so deeply shares the same passion as I of providing holistic and compassionate health care. After obtaining my first degree in Biological Sciences from the University of California, Irvine and assisting nurses and CNAs as a Clinical Care Extender, I became inspired to pursue a career in nursing. I obtained my RN license July 2015 and graduated

In August 2014 I took a class on local anesthesia and nitrous oxide at the University of Farmingdale. I took it upon myself to take this course due to the high volume of patients seen at our practice, so that I could treat SRP patients fully without having to interrupt the doctor during treatment. I also relearned how to perform sealants with the help of Dr. Service and was able to perform
