I decided to continue that passion. I stated teaching to graduate students at Trine University Indiana USA after my graduation. Being a teacher, given the experiences that I have had with teaching over the past few years. I used same teaching philosophy and succeed in teaching. Meanwhile, I taught several health care subjects in USA including anatomy, physiology, microbiology, counselling, women health, & healthcare management.
The personal statement connects qualities of my current practice as a Registered Nurse to the proficiencies of a Family Nurse Practitioner. I describe my learning habits and how the plan of study that Ball State offers coincides with my current work life. I conclude by describing the skills I attain and connect those skills to the Family Nurse Practitioner Concentration at Ball State. Master of Science in Nursing Statement The healthcare system, specifically nursing, has always had a major influence in my life. I come from a family of nurses and have seen healthcare from an inside point of view as a
Appendix D contains ten sentences in which my transferable, content, and stylistic skills were applied to an experience which occurred in my life. This is exercise 6-4 in the textbook. My transferable skills included “coached”, “listened”, “helped”, and even “evaluated”. It would seem as though I should be in a profession where listening, helping and evaluating are all integrated into a day’s work. By being a physician, I would be “coaching” patients, in a sense, by directing and guiding them back to their normal health state.
Provide specific examples regarding your progress in the ability to plan care for one patient during the clinical shift. 1. Describe your approach to learning about your patient’s story. At the beginning of the shift, I would look up all of the patients that are assigned to my preceptor and follow my preceptor to get RN report on each patient. After listening to each patient’s story, we then decide which patient to assign to me.
All of these topics are essential for an individual reviewing the RN’s profile, because they give the interviewer a basic generalization of a possible candidate for their position. The interviewer can get a good grasp on how long an individual stays at a job, what specialty of nursing they’ve been in, where they went to school, years of experience and why they wanted to go into nursing in the first place. All these descriptions about an individual will lay down the foundation for an interviewer to get know the RN. Next, I would like to discuss the importance for clinical experience to be included in the portfolio. The Clinical experience essentially displays to an interviewer how well a RN documents, how they performed during clinical and how they took care of their patient.
My placements consisted of hematology, clinical neuroscience, acute mental health, complex care and a medicine unit. In looking back over my assessments for these placements I have been able to put together a list of my strengths and areas for growth and from this list I have created my learning plan for my first year of practice. Strengths. Upon reviewing past reflections and feedback from tutors and peers, my strengths include “effective communication with all appropriate parties.” I am reflective and therefore identify areas of strengths and limitations and areas that need improvement; I also seek out constructive feedback regarding my practice (A. Ilic, personal communication, DATE) According to my preceptor last semester I demonstrates a sound understanding of self-care, self-reflection and work life balance. I also have an “understanding of the components of the nurse patient relationship, by maintaining an open and professional relationship with the patients.” I am also “demonstrated self-direction and initiative” (B. Mahy, personal communication, DATE).
Outcome 5: Use Basic Communication and Collaborative Skills to Optimize Patient Outcomes Brenen Dapkiewicz NU 311 Fundamentals of Nursing Practicum Washburn University School of Nursing Knowledge Q1: Describe how you utilized several communication skills you were introduced to in class. During my long-term care experience last Friday, I was exposed to many forms of communication. There was non-verbal communication, where you could just see that a patient was maybe anxious or content. I witnessed verbal communication between nurses, certified nurse's assistants, bath assistants, and even student nurses. However, the best example I can give about communication and how I utilized communication was during my first insulin injection.
If you're interested in becoming a medical assistant, talk to a medical assistant and ask a lot of questions. Watch someone for the day their job. Make sure you go to an accredited school and be careful that you have transferable credits. It's important to become a certified medical assistant. Some medical assistant schools train their students to take the exam while in school.
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. Self-reflection on Professional Practice All nurses registered in the general and extended classes are required to complete their self-Assessment every year. Self-Assessment is a self-directed, two-part process that results in a learning plan (CNO self assessment 2018). Through the process of self-assessment, you identify your areas of strength and learning needs (CNO
My Field as Occupational Therapy I described Occupational Therapy as the field to help all kinds of people with disabilities or who need help to have more prosperous standard of living. This career has a complex concept but the main goal of the Occupational Therapists is understand the different need of the client and improve their daily activities. I always been interested in the medical field especially in the pediatric setting. When I came to this country, I spent almost two years finding what I wanted to study. While I was doing research, I am taking class to improve my English and gain time to be sure my future career.
She took part in the Baxter training seminars and work closely with the Baxter educator, and PD coordinator. She rotates on-call with other colleagues to provide hemodialysis and peritoneal treatments in the event of an emergency during off hours. Ms. Cabral has the responsibility of evaluating the unit performance as measured against the Joint Commission standards on a quarterly basis and takes action to correct any deficits that may be found. Ensuring compliance keeps the unit continuously ready for inspection. The visit by the Joint Commission consultant resulted in a deficiency free survey.
“Continuity at the end of the day will enhance your healing rates, make your administration happier, and improve the quality of life for your patients” ( Vinayagasundaram, Halpin & Sullivan 2009). To complete this study I would need to have the regular staff nurses participate as well as the residents that have wounds, agree to be in the study. The regular staff would be called in to a meeting at least one month before the proposed experiment. They would be educated on the practices of what would be expected of a wound care nurse. The staff interested to be a wound care nurse would then be handed applications to
During the meeting I was able to observe the beginning of the school year medical procedures and learn about the specific needs of students how to care for them. Something valuable that I took away from the meeting is the importance of having a good foundation of communication between the educator and school nurse. A strong foundation allows the educators and nurses to work together and properly meet the student’s
I also attended classroom workshops on inter-professional working and communication by Helen York, where I learnt the important features of inter-professional working, and also the importance of communication in improving patient satisfaction and outcome. During inter-professional working workshop, we had healthcare professionals from various hospitals that came to our school to share more about their roles and responsibilities. An activity was carried out, where the healthcare professionals will walk around the teams to discuss more about their roles in the healthcare field. We were supposed to identify and make a list of the healthcare professionals who would be involved in getting into contact with the patient with a certain condition or
For this week’s discussion post I will identify a situation where evidence-based practice has been applied in my workplace. Evidence-based guidelines are put in place and into practice after research has been completed. This helps with intertwining practice and research and are established by professional organizations, government agencies, institutions, or expert panels (LoBiondo-Wood & Haber, 2014). These clinical guidelines give clinicians findings to help in the decision making process of diseases or treatments. In developing evidence-based practice, a clinical question must first be put into place.
