To improve current service delivery methods in my future position to keep up-to-date with the growing trends is to become a member of the National Council of Nonprofits and the Society for Nonprofits. These organizations will help provide resources and consulting services to further develop my nonprofit. By joining these two organizations, I will get the opportunity to attend conferences, receive free phone advice and assistance from nonprofit experts, access to technical assistance, scholarships for attending training and educational workshops, newsletters,
Reflecting on the past seven weeks I have acquired countless knowledge, which I will use to further strengthen my profession as an Advanced Practice Nurse. The course allowed me to think beyond my current practice knowledge and acquired innovative ways to evaluate the situation at hand. The learning objective in program outcome four helps set standards that I will use to guide my clinical practice to meet various healthcare needs. Using the case studies has helped to further enhance my knowledge on disease physiological state, using differential diagnosis, disease manifestations, and clinical presentation. It has also taught me the skills on how to differentiate between similar diagnoses to properly identify the problem and treat the patients.
I look forward to learning skills that help them to handle adequately complex challenges such as working within tight budgets, initiating health care policy change to eliminate health disparities, and improving health care outcomes at all levels of care. As a DNP, I will practice health promotion, health maintenance, and prevention in the facilities where I work. DNP provided me with the knowledge of where to seek to fund when carrying out a research project from The National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) and the National Institute of Health (NIH). These institutes work together to improve minority health and eliminate health disparities through scientific research that is federally funded. (AANC,

I had chosen to use my work as a reflection of my values. -Sidney Poitier Although I am in my late thirties, I am elated to find my purpose. The aforementioned quote from Sidney Portier could not express my sentiments more. The human services field is where I want to contribute the most during my lifetime. Moreover, I learned a lot about myself, I have some experiences that will contribute to my professional growth and identity and I am certain there will be challenges in my future as a psychologist.
The last three clinical weeks at the Long Term Care Facility have provided me with real life situations to enforce the SILC clinical skills and improve my therapeutic communication. This experience has helped shaped me as a professional by allowing me to develop essential skills that contribute to the holistic care of nursing. A significant improvement that I developed following this experience included my assessment skills during every resident interaction. During these resident encounters, I began to address the resident’s overall well-being and comfort rather than just the current problem. I started incorporating questions about pain, how the resident slept at night, their current mood, and many other questions addressing the resident’s status as a whole.
First, we are clinicians to which these patients seek for our expertise to address their health problems. Secondly, we are diagnosticians whereby we seek the underlying causes of our patient’s health issues. Third, we are educators to which we help our patients cope and understand their health conditions. And lastly, we aspire to be the catalyst for a positive change in our patient’s concept of wellness and health. And truly, when we achieve our roles as catalysts for change for our patients we exude the transformative power of physical
Today, On Wednesday, September 9, 2015, I attended a beginning of the school year healthcare meeting. The annual meeting was conducted by one of the school nurses and it included all of the second grade teachers. Before today’s meeting I had never attended a health care meeting, but I certainly knew of the importance of having a good relationship and communication between school nurses and educators. A teacher’s responsibility includes so many variables including and foremost a student’s care and safety. Additionally, School nurses help educators in ensuring and caring for student’s and their healthcare needs.
In becoming one, I hope to accomplish many things. I want to be able to utilize the skills and knowledge that I have developed and apply them to the best of my ability in the care of my patients. By doing so, I will make an impact on the lives of every patient that I meet. Furthermore, I will continue to learn throughout my practice by continually researching new proven methods of care and eventually contributing to the improvement of health care in the future. Overall, I envision myself to not only be a care provider, but also a leader, researcher, advocate, and educator (Yoost & Crawford, 2016). Lastly, as I work with patients, families, and members of my community, I will strive to uphold all ethical standards and treat everyone with respect and dignity, in addition to being culturally sensitive and embracive of
Being a parent of a child with chronic issues I feel I have an added insight to many medical and emotional situations. Direct patient contact and being in charge of the direction of my patient’s care why I want to be a FNP and not a PA. As a FNP I would like to be involved in the community based services like the county health department, healthy start and BCMH because these programs helped me when I was a scared, uncertain parent. Educating patients about community services is vital to patient care. Every situation will be different but just being a person in a similar situation I know that many things can be achieved and things are not
I chose to take part in the gastrointestinal medicine service for our mandatory clinical week since I enjoyed the GI block greatly and heard it was a good mix of ruminating on problems and doing procedures. My assigned team was with Dr. Saloojee and his band of residents. On my first day, the first person I met with was Dr. Stephanie Collins, PGY-5, and we began patient rounds. The first patient I met on service was really medically complex: a middle-aged female that presented with chronic diarrhea that severely affected her quality of life, with a long-standing surgical history including small bowel resections, antrectomy due to a perforated ulcer, and a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy tube. She was in the hospital for five months at this
Hospital Corpsmen were often the only medical caregivers available in many fleet or Marine units. Hospital Corpsmen served as enlisted medical specialists for the United States Navy and the United States Marine Corps. They worked in a wide range of areas and locations, including naval hospitals and clinics, on ships, in battle, and as well as the main medical caregivers for sailors while underway (2).
Having grown up in a community underserved in mental health care, my beliefs are commensurate with the National Health Service Corps’ in that access to health care is a basic human right. As a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner I will strive to increase access to mental health care for individuals in underserved communities as a nurse in a community-based practice. National Health Service Corps’ mission to increase accessibility of quality health care will benefit from my commitment to serving individuals without health insurance and those living in rural and urban areas where mental health care services are limited.
A: During my Peace Corps service 3 professional attributes I plan to use are human centered design, project / program management, and Outreach coordination.
To begin, I feel that I am a dedicated student and that being so, I believe that I am a great candidate for becoming a part of the NHS program. And because of even being considered for a role in this program I feel very dignified. As well as, to hope that soon enough I will be a member of NHS.
