Through continuous learning, we will be aware how to avoid, care, and manage in that particular condition. They said that prevention through being aware can cure and stop the spread of transmission. The challenge of being a registered nurse is how to become knowledgeable and competent because we are dealing with lives of the people around us. Every single action is vital and every second should not be disregard. Therefore, it has made me realized that even you had already encountered a specific diseases, skills, equipment and so forth we have to be vigilant for the continuous changing world of being not just a registered but also a professional nurse.
Within the nursing world, organizational skills and stress management are huge. Staying on top of tasks that are time critical as well as holding yourself in check are two components of every day nursing that need to be dealt with regularly. Most people in society deem nurses to be kind and compassionate and hold great deal of dedication and patience. It is important to not lose these traits, because they identify the types of individuals working within this professional practice. Nurses need to be extremely observant and pay attention to very minute detail in order to ensure their patient’s safety and well-being.
My passion is for people to have good health and for their positive well-being. Furthermore, nursing also calls for a great deal of time spent with patients, which will lead to a great relationship with them. I enjoy making relationships with people because it’s critical to accomplish strong connections in life. I want to be the nurse that people refer their family members and friends because I have great service, a caring heart, and enjoy teaching them how to live a healthy
It is of the utmost importance for the nurse to take all the competencies into consideration while caring for a patient, but the most important competency for a palliative care nurse is systems thinking. I believe the need for this capability supersedes the others, as according to Matzo & Sherman (2015) it is through this competency that the nurse is able to apply the knowledge they possess and it in turn offer the patient an improved quality of life as they are undergoing palliative care. This allows for the nurse to have the capability to provide the patient with the care they require. This capability enables the nurse to be competent and recognize the patient’s needs and tailor a specific care plan unique to the specific needs of the patient.
I have engaged APRN and MD’s committed to providing comprehensive clinical experiences and supervision. The challenges I anticipate are the many demands on my time, which I will need to continue to manage efficiently. I am fortunate to have the support of my family, and continuing to show them my appreciation for their support through this will need to remain a priority. My education pathway has progressed to meet the essential knowledge foundation for a rapidly changing healthcare system.
There are many careers in the field. But I choose to be a pediatric nurse. There are many reasons to why I picked this as my career. I love working with infants, I like helping with others, and a career as a nurse pays very well. I really want to be this because my mother is a nurse.
I know now that I must appreciate and respect the roles nurses play in patient’s daily lives. I am aware that I will have to be emotionally and physically strong to grow as a nurse. I know that I will just have to work much harder to learn from others mistakes as well as my own. I can only imagine the reasoning behind these types of situations as I question things such as: how can burnout rates decrease, what does the future of nursing look like, and when will nursing burnout rates improve? Moreover, I think more research can be done on the media portrayal of nursing as well as the differences found between public’s perception of nursing and the reality.
In all my experiences as a nurse, I’ve realized the importance of communication, providing holistic care to an individual and empowering them with the knowledge to manage their health. When an illness strikes a person, it affects not just his body, but also his mind and spirit. The art of communication is invaluable to patient interaction and establishing a therapeutic nurse-patient relationship, that facilitate coping mechanisms for patients, moreover it prepared myself as a nurse to meet their individual needs. Furthermore, there is at the moment an insurmountable demand for survivorship care as a result of the advancement in technology and medicine, which made living beyond life expectancy possible for increasingly more people. Living after cancer treatment is not free of complications as there are acute and chronic side effects of treatment that requires constant monitoring and attention, and this information spurred me to shift my focus from palliative to survivorship care.
Cultural diversity makes our world interesting and unique. However, birth is the unifying factor among all people of this earth. Jan Mallak describes it best in her article when she claims that by being “humanly” sensitive and providing equal care for all, we are as politically correct as we can be. Childbirth educators have the wonderful opportunity to promote change and acceptance through education and advocacy. By incorporating cultural awareness and sensitivity into the curriculum, childbirth educators assist all women and families to have a positive and beautiful birth experience.
Nurses have an empowerment to change many lives, by becoming emotionally attached to their patients. Therefore, a patient who is under the nurse’s care develops comfortability with them in a respectful relationship. A nurse must always be observant to its working condition in the environment when it comes to patient care assistance. I decide to choose a wonderful nursing career, because of the health problems people experience that is associated in a busy lifestyle.
Having experienced many difficulties with my pregnancies, childbirth and now as mother of two and enjoying motherhood from a patient’s perspective, I am aware of the valuable contribution that professionals in the health care industry make in alleviating not just the medical and physical problems that may occur, but also in offering guidance and comfort on a psychological level. I possess a caring and compassionate manner. I have a strong and commitment. I am good at listening. I have a love for mankind, as well as an intellectual aptitude for the related subject areas.
Nurse Midwifery As the second hand on the clock ticks by, her contractions begin to occur closer and closer together. At thirty-nine weeks along, she has been preparing for this day for quite some time now and has reviewed all of her options. Her husband and herself have both made the conscious decision to not have the baby in the hospital, but rather in their own home; she knew that she wanted to be as comfortable as possible, and there is nowhere more comfortable than their home. Another contraction hits her and she finds herself yelling out, the pain becoming more defined with each minute.
Laurel Ulrich’s A Midwifes Tale is a book over Marth Ballard who was a New England women living in America. Ulrich uses Marth Ballard diary entries along with other historical documents from the eighteenth century to show her audience the life of women specifically a midwife in the American society, and the sexual standards that were present during the eighteenth century. Martha Ballard the wife of Ephraim Ballard was midwife during the eighteenth century in Hallowell, who not only played the role of a midwife in the society, but also the role of a wife and a mother. Ulrich starts to book by talking about scarlet fever epidemic that had taken places in Hallowell during the summer of 1787. During the time of the fever and after the epidemic had ended, Martha played the role of an important member in the community, even though the social structure in Hallowell was giving more importance to male doctors.
A midwife's tale" was written by historian Laurel Thatcher Ulrick who transforms the humble diary of a midwife into a magnificent commentary that depicts the missing treasures of everyday colors of the eighteenth century. In the year 1785, America was still a green and chaotic nation the dairy of Martha Ballard began in the remote corners that is Maine. In that year the fifty year old Martha begins the dairy for which she would keep for the next twenty seven years well into her dead bed. What is amazing however was not how long she could keep the journal well into her seventies but that during that time only fewer than half of all women in America was literate. She faithfully took into account of daily weather and her household tasks, her duties
