She is the main carer for her husband, who is currently staying at a care home until Gladys is discharged from hospital. Gladys admitted to the nurse that she had been experiencing regular chest pains for some time; however, she had been self-administering aspirin to herself, rather than go to the doctor. As I observed, the nurse explained to Gladys that she should have gone to the doctor straight away rather than self-medicate and stated that Gladys would need an angiogram to confirm a diagnosis and assess any trauma sustained. She also gave Gladys a copy of The Eatwell Plate and stated that Gladys would need to lose weight in order to prevent the event from happening again,
Although she was unhappy no one in her family knew she wanted to leave until she was already gone. In a letter she was writing to her family Marilyn said, “I have kept all these feelings inside me for a long time”. This inward questioning about whether she should stay at home and become the perfect housewife, or if she should chase her dream of becoming a doctor is what defines Marilyn as a character. She has all of these aspirations however, due to the social norms around her she is forced to choose between two separate lives. This decision and specifically the letter relates back to the title where it hints at secrets kept by characters in the novel.
I am passionate about nursing because I aspire to succor and care for people, and I want to make a difference. My parents have had always pushed me to be a nurse, and while I was growing up, I thought I wanted that too, but during and after high school, I was indecisive about my major. My indecisiveness led me to just go for nursing until I find the right career for me. I was accepted in Vocational Nursing Program, and during my journey in the program did I first realize my passion for nursing. Then I work as a Licensed Vocational nurse which made me more fond of being a nurse and be passionate about it.
A professor of mine, who started her career at an oncology unit, had to quit due to the overwhelming sense of grief and loss. Although one could argue she is too young and unprepared to cope to the emotionally taxing job, I believe that the absence of help contributed to her emotional burnout. The organization has to provide education, counselling and allow nurses to grieve. Some nurses preferred informal peer support (cite) but the organization should also cater for nurses that would like to have a group counselling. As well as developing a culture that is more open to the reporting of occupational and emotional fatigue so that nurses do not have to suffer in silence and receive the help that they need.
It enables the student to reflect and consider his/her intentions and actions prior to the incident and prompts the health professional to critically assess the incident and identify the key learning outcomes through a series of questions (Johns, 2013). These two models can be interlinked to enable the student to explore his/her thoughts are feelings without making assumptions whilst creating learning opportunities to change future nursing practice. Due to having two different models of reflection, where Johns (2000) reflective model does not permit the practitioner to delve into their thoughts and feelings, Driscoll (2000) model of reflection enables them to do so to achieve different learning outcomes (Jasper, 2013). The student school nurse aims to use all three stages of the Driscoll (2000) reflection model and only three out of five stages of Johns (2000) reflection model: description context and clarification, reflection and influencing factors. The rationale for this is because some stages of both reflection models are similar such as: What?
Although my grandmother did have her first born delivered at home, this was not by choice and she reports that she was scared for the health of her and her baby and would not do it again. While we chose the safe, medical approach with anesthetics our babies were all born healthy. The hospital stay varies in days with mine and my mothers deliveries. She had her babies delivered via caesarean delivery so her healing process took more time. I believe the stay for c section deliveries is 1-2 days longer than a vaginal delivery.

In nursing practice, a nurse shoulders the responsibility of making decisions that affect their patient's life. In order to effectively make the best decision, they must be able to use critical thinking. Critical Thinking is important because it is the difference between simply believing what is given and being able to make one's own educated decisions based upon evidence provided in the field. Multiple aspects make up critical thinking, and who is equipped to be an effective critical thinker. Most of these aspects can be taught while nurses are still in school to better their chances of success.
