A core strength of the Loma Linda University Program is their capacity to seamlessly weave Christian values into an advanced medial education program. The medical profession absolutely could benefit from having professionals who come from a strong academic background, but it also needs professionals who strive to uphold Christian values within their daily lives. The values I’m referring to are characteristics such as compassion and integrity. Human compassion is at the very heart of the medical profession. It is the compassion that is nurtured by nurses, PA’s, and physicians which transforms the clinical and overwhelming medical world into something more humanistic and comforting. Exhibiting integrity and respect towards patients is what allows them to feel secure in entrusting their lives to those nurses, PA’s, and physicians. This establishment of trust is integral to the medical system, and it can only happen when medical professionals make a daily, conscious commitment to treat every patient with compassion and integrity. For me, these characteristics are intertwined with my faith. Being true to my Seventh Day Adventist faith requires me to prioritize the very characteristics that are essential to the medical field.

This article is related to Unit 1 lecture on Ethics and Values taught by Mrs. Townes. To provide optimal care for individuals of different religious cultures, practices and beliefs nurses must be skilled in identifying best practices when caring for patients. Understanding a patient’s religious beliefs and values will determine if that patient receives efficient and standard care based on their own beliefs. Buddhist may deny certain medication based on the make-up or components of the medication and whether medications will alter their normal state of mind. The best care for a patient of Buddhist ethnicity is to provide them with a calm environment that will allow patients to meditate, practice relaxation techniques, and chanting rituals.

They should be good communicators, and actually listen to their patients, or families concerns, empathize, and provide clear concise information. An important value a healthcare worker should also embody is altruism. Nurses and medical professionals need prioritize their patients’ needs, without any regard for rewards or benefits. A persons’ health and welfare needs to be priority to a nurse, no matter what the situation. Josie’s Story highlighted the importance of altruism, and the need for nurses and doctors to take a step back and truly listen.
My faith allows me the interact with my client on a different level. As a Christian, and firm believer in Christ, help me encourage my patient and give hope of a better future. My family is the second most essential values. When nurses can relate to their patient 's values, it forms a trust relationship. Just taking the talk about each other 's children can form a bond.
Coming from a different culture but still embracing the Christian values that Loma Linda University emphasizes, I believe that my unique background and personal experiences distinguish my application from others. Growing up in Egypt, where the gap between social classes is significant, my parents always stressed the need to prioritize service into my life encouraging me to dedicate time in volunteering and helping others. As a result, my experience has grown from volunteering to serve as a camp leader for orphans in the summer to participating in international dental service trips. These involvements would allow me to use my skills in organizing missions trips at Loma Linda. Being a Coptic Orthodox Christian enables me to add diversity to the

The AVID program has had a positive impact in my academics, and in my life by helping me focus, enrich, and solidify my goals. I can say with full confidence that AVID has become an integral part of my High School year that equipped me with the skills and knowledge needed to be successful in college. As an immigrant who came to the United States five years ago and English being my third language, the AVID program challenged me to think critically and strive to learn more. Personality wise, there are major changes that I observed once I joined the program.
Recently, I began a mission to find a great college to attend. After careful consideration and several reasons, I chose to start my process at Suny Empire State College.

Needless to say, I am not the typical age of a college student.
It is important to empathies with those patients, and search for the underlying cause of their anger in order to restore their spirit. Additionally, my personal values include showing compassionate care to all patients regardless of race, religion, or sexual orientation. As a Christian, it is first and foremost my job to spread the world of Christ to those who do not know him. Therefore, I value the ability to speak to patients about Jesus in times of sickness and
Every nursing, in order to consider the profession must have an understanding of at least three of the five professional values, in my opinion. These values consist of altruism, autonomy, human dignity, integrity and social justice (Taylor 96).

I believe that in order to be the best nurse you can be for your patients, you must understand the concept of altruism. As a nurse, your profession is to take care of people, if you do not know the professional value of altruism than you cannot possibly understand how important it is to care about the wellbeing of your patient.
