I saw at first-hand the impact of diseases including, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, but more importantly, I witnessed the impact of empathy and good care had on a patient and their families. This experience helped me learn how to overcome challenges faced when caring for patients each day and it reinforced my motivation to work as hard as possible to succeed in nursing school and continue to work to care for others. The experience also provided an opportunity to act as leader since the assisted care home I worked at this past summer was understaffed due to a change in ownership and some staff changes. When my team was short caregivers, I made sure that I spent more time with each patient to ensure they did not have anxiety about the change and end up worried and feeling alone. I found that a few minutes of companionship and
They were concerned with me because I was in my second trimester of pregnancy, a nursing student, and the stress was affecting my blood pressure.

During this time great stressors were placed on my sister
Over the course of the next two weeks, I grew to admire and appreciate the nurses on the step-down unit. One nurse, especially motivated me to choose nursing as my profession. My mom and I would talk with the nurse each time she would come to care for my mom. For example, the nurse, my mom, and I discussed the events of the day in addition to my nonappearance on picture day. Nurses, along with their hard work and determination, impacted me because they accept what life unexpectedly throws our way.

Being able to have a chance to watch parental visits, the delivery and postnatal visits, is a great way to put all the steps together. My OB experience has positive and negatives outcomes. The first OB mother I got paired with, did not have any prenatal visits left when I contacted her, but I was able to watch the placement of her cervidil. Her labor went extremely fast, and the nursing staff was unable to call me due to the fasten of her deliver. Then I was going to get place with another nurse’s student, to watch that birth.
Through being a student nurse, I was taught and molded to become a safe and practical licensed nurse. I endured a whole year of reading and book work, sleepless nights and a whole lot of sacrificing to become a future nurse. Through all my days in a clinical setting and shadowing different care team members, one of the most valuable lessons I have picked up on is the good and bad habits health care members attained over the years when it came to professionalism in the workplace. I have realized that for me to be a successful and professional nurse in the field, it is crucial to be respectful, advocate for patients, show integrity, look the part and have good personal hygiene. When I talk about respect, it is not only in regard to respecting the ones that have a higher rank.

Dear Mrs. Anderson, I really enjoyed the last week’s hospital staff meeting. I particularly enjoyed your presentation on infection control and found it very informative. I think that this training helped the nursing staff understand the importance of infection control and emphasized the hospital policy on the subject. After the meeting last week, the topic of stress in the nursing community came up, and many of the nursing staff came to me to talk about the stress they experience in their day to day routine. As a group we discussed workload and the amount of staff available to get work done.
The foster mother reported that she went to her teacher who gave her an attitude before and apologized to her asking forgiveness and help in her assignment, the teacher smiled and cried saying that she loves her and she wants to help her if she allowed the teacher to help the client and if she needs any help, just ask at any time and the teacher will help her. The client also reported that she was tired as well because she had to stay after school several times as she wanted to have extra help in math and English and Art. The client reported that her foster mother is dealing with her in a good way and communicating better than last few weeks as they started to spend more time together and talk more.

The client reported that she does not have to lie in the future as her foster mother's reaction is not like her biological family's reaction and there is no reason to be
For over fifteen years I have enjoyed being an LPN. Working in nursing homes taught me to how to patience and how to use my knowledge to help my patients to the best of my ability. My time as an alcohol and drug rehabilitation nurse helped me to appreciate the courage it takes to admit to a problem, ask for help and the strength it takes to work to get better. Working in a hospital taught me to how to work in a fast paced setting while keeping my sanity intact.
