I started my career with the intent to be at the bedside caring for patients. In the past 4 years I have been learning but not a majority from books or in a laboratory but from human to human contact. I work for a safety net hospital; truly no one is turned away. I’ve helped collaborate care in a time of crisis for people that bring with them cultures, beliefs and values from half way around the world.
I plan on obtaining my masters in nursing and becoming a neonatal nurse. Without taking science courses at River Valley, becoming a nurse would have never crossed my mind. As a sophomore I took biology where I learned about topics such as genetics and how different genes can affect an offspring. In chemistry I became fascinated with the idea of mixing different elements and chemicals to make something brand new and in anatomy I was taught about the skeletal, muscle and nervous systems which we were able to better see through
I have seen the best and of course the not so stellar examples of how to do things. All of these experiences have impacted me and my abilities. I recall shortly after starting my first job as a paramedic asking a physician at the local emergency room about a medical condition that one of my patients had and that I was not familiar with. He politely smiled, said follow me, and walked over to the physician charting area. He reached up to a shelf of books that was above the desk and pulled down this large, intimidating book with a red and white cover, Tintinalli’s Emergency Medicine.
We never underestimate the power of an itsy-bitsy atom, which contrives the mysterious, gigantic universe. The analogously minuscule cell is regarded true biological atom, which institutes many intricate systems of our complex human body and its creation, my inheritance genes provoked my inquisitive mind to dive into the understanding of the complexity of our organs. Up to elementary school, my cumulative treasure of science pertained only theories. My hands-on practical started during 7th grade, I dissected a cow eyeball to learn its anatomical structures. Next dissection was a frog, first time in my life I saw internal organs by naked eyes, and to see the circulatory system I dissected an Earth worm.
I would have the opportunity, not only to shape my own education, but to have the chance to improve the medical school system. It also allows for modernization in teaching methods, such as simulation-based training. I already tend to use hands-on and visual learning methods in studying and so this would help me immensely in succeeding while enjoying the material being taught. We did a lot of simulation-based learning in my EMR class and it was my favorite part of the course. I was also attracted by the WMed approach to teaching through teamwork.
I can feel the sun blazing against my skin while sitting on the grass of the Alumni Lawn. I can witness lifelong relationships being forged in the Common Center. I can hear the whispering voices of students collaborating and spreading knowledge in the Central Library. I can imagine myself being an active student at Vanderbilt University.
I worked with young children in the resource room with the staff that included teachers, special needs assistants and an occupational therapist, who routinely visits the school. I found the experience immensely rewarding to see the progress the children made in such a short space of time. I was able to see and discuss the different exercises that the occupational therapist used with the children in order for them to make progress. This gave me a great insight into the work environment and daily tasks of an occupational therapist and it made me realise that I had the personality traits and abilities that suited this career
Homeostasis is the body's method of keeping internal stability no matter what external influence disturbs its normal functioning (Anna, 2011). And the respiratory system is one of the systems in the body that helps to maintain homeostasis by maintaining pH and regulating gas exchange. The main function of this system is take in oxygen and get rid of carbon dioxide. This system has external respiration and internal respiration. External respiration is a mechanical process that exchange of gases in and out of the body, while internal respiration is the chemical process that breaking down nutrients with oxygen to produce energy.
I had learned different things in the medical field. I learn how to verify insurance, call in prescription and had a great deal of customer experience by now. I had the endurance to learn anything. I would be placed in front office and back office. I enjoyed back office more dealing with directly assisting the doctor.
The functions of the human cardiopulmonary system can be broken down into two, circulatory system and the respiratory system. The main goal of these two systems is to maintain homeostasis in our body. Homeostasis can be described as a type of condition where the internal continuity of an individual has to keep steadiness, regardless of any external changes from the outside environment. External changes from the outside environment may include factors such as excitement, stress, exercise, diet, and much more. Exercise can be carried out because the human body can endure a high level of exercise during a prolonged period of time.
My definition of knowledge is a true fact or justified belief that is acquired through a persons experience and education. To a great extent, faith does play a role in deciding if knowledge we acquire has purpose and meaning in our lives however, sometimes faith does not play a role. Personal lives refers to our day to day life and how knowledge provides us with meaning and purpose in it. Its how we take shared knowledge and apply it to our individual perceptions and perspectives of our lives. Knowledge provides with the understanding of the world and gives us meaning in life.
