Overcoming obstacles and improving myself through clinical experience, I learned of other essential qualities needed for success in the field. My greatest time of growth was during my junior residency in internal medicine. Working closely with physicians and developing a rapport with patients, I greatly enjoyed experiencing several areas of the field, from outpatient medicine to ICU to CCU. While the days were long and demanding, I left each night knowing that I had helped relieve my patients’ illness. That’s the reason I am only applying to Internal Medicine as my career; I am the type of person who has always had an acute awareness of other people’s suffering, which has led me to be an empathetic and caring physician.
Growing up as a young girl I was always told that my attitude was perfect for me to become a lawyer – I never lost an argument. I took the advice and I ran with it. I boasted about becoming a lawyer. I started to research the various types of lawyers, their median salaries and the amount of years it would take me in school and to advance in my practice. Although I was focused on pursuing a career in the law I was also intrigued by the medical field.
Today, I am glad I choose nursing because I have overcome my social fears, learn to be a team player, learn how to prioritize and most importantly learned to manage stress. Lastly, I grew as a nurse with each semester because I learned how to respect and treat each patient as a unique individual. I have also learned to put my patient safety as my priority and provide presence because I realized through my clinical experience that, sometimes that all the patients need. Below is the breakdown of how I have developed each semester in nursing school. FALL 2013 • Foundations of Nursing: NUR 2310 In this course, I learned the different nursing theories and how it has been
I’m interested in transferring to VCU because of your medical program. In the Spring of 2014 my boyfriend was in a motorcycle accident and spent two weeks at VCU Medical Center. The care he received there was the best. Not only do the care for the patient, they care for the family too. I remember breaking down and crying in the Gateway Building.
Over the course of the past few years I had the privilege of shadowing Dr. Ghandi M. Saadeh and Dr. Ravi C. Kahatapitiya at Sentara Leigh Hospital. I was able to spend a substantial amount of time with both and I consider each man a great leader and mentor. The medical shadowing experience changed my views not only as a student, but as a person in general. I was taught the importance of the doctor-patient relationship and how to successful build bonds with people both in the office and outside of it. Both continuously conveyed that a patient should be viewed as a friend and each should receive the same level of respect and treatment no matter what the cause is.
Eric Clark was not guilty because his age, his education and his mental illness. Eric Clark was born in 1983. He is Terry Clark’s son. He was 17 years old when he killed the police. So it took three years for Eric Clark to be found competent to stand trial.
Having volunteered with a hospital (Loma Linda Murrieta) that utilized Scribe America scribes, I saw firsthand the expectations and responsibilities of a Scribe America scribe. I also saw how the job was serving as a major stepping stone to many of the scribes overall healthcare career. I want to be a Scribe America scribe firstly because I have seen firsthand what the scribes can do to aid the physicians and what the scribes gained from it, such as strong work relations, education, and experience but also because I have an immense amount of respect for the company. One of the reasons why I have an immense amount of respect for the company is because of the opportunities it provides its scribes, but also because I saw first-hand the treatment the scribes received. What impressed me about Scribe America’s treatment was the work that went into cultivating a positive and enthusiastic work environment for the scribes and chief’s scribes.
Although I have never worked in a library, I believe that my skills and experiences make me an exceptional candidate for this position. During my internship this summer at the Office of Chief Medical Examiner(OCME), my main duty was to contact numerous people to endure that their requests were being upheld on our end at the OCME. This greatly improved my communication skills with other people because although some people may be difficult, one always has to remain professional. In addition, I had to maintain the __ of the cases that I was handling. Granted that I have all these individual qualities, being on the cheer team, in high school and in college, has taught me how to be reliable and how to work collectively with others.
I realized that I belong at George Washington University once I discovered the astonishing opportunities lying within and around the campus. When I learned that this university could fulfill my dream of studying World Health and was located blocks away from the institutions I always envisioned myself working for, I was instantly captivated. By excelling at GWU, I will have the opportunity to work hand in hand with organizations like the World Bank and the United States Agency for International Development through internship, research fellowship, and most importantly through daily interaction that only GWU can facilitate for its students. By being a member of a community where national leaders and global guests convene to share personal experiences, I will be inspired to follow in their footsteps. A building is not built with a single brick but many bricks laid with great attention and care.
The areas that I scored highest are the most important for my profession. Investigative shows that I am interested in researching and finding new ways to improve health and wellness. Being social is extremely important as a physician assistant. You have to work and communicate with many people throughout the day, so there is no room for antisocial behavior. Enterprising and conventional show that I am not afraid to be a leader or make tough decisions while paying close attention to details and following set procedures or rules.

I am thankful for my experience as an STNA and Restorative Aide at Darby Glenn in addition to my time at UD. Each has inspired my love for nursing and has influenced me to set new personal and professional goals. I ask for your consideration for admission into your program, which will facilitate my goal of becoming an Adult Gerontology Primary Care or Family Nurse Practitioner. I look forward to not only embarking on this new journey but also joining my mother and brother as a Buckeye
