Growing up, I always loved helping and taking care of people. After high school I became and EMT and it was a job that I loved but had to give up after having children. Being able to help someone in their time of need, just gave me the satisfaction of knowing that I had a purpose in this world. Now that my children are getting older, I have decided to take back the reins of my life and go back to school to become a registered nurse. With nursing, there can be very different scopes of practice.
When I decided to enroll to become a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) last 2009, I know that I would be dealing to different types of people and be part of a team that would be responsible in healing and promoting wellness to our patients. When I acquired my license, I immediately started to look for a job where I can apply the concepts I have learned. I was accepted to various nursing homes and during my stay I got the chance to meet and work with people from other countries with different culture. At first, I was hesitant to converse with them because I might say or do something that is inappropriate to them. For example, I have a workmate who is a Muslim and I am a Christian.
I thought that this would be a great way to develop a better understanding of the career and what it takes to care for others. The STNA classes I completed to receive certification and the work as a patient aid that followed helped me confirm that I was making the right choice with respect to my career choice. I worked as a personal care aid in an assisted living home to gain knowledge and experience and I am extremely grateful for that opportunity. Working in the health care field provided a chance to care for the elderly and watch nurses do their jobs. 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.
However, they also manage to benefit along the way. This teaches people the impact being kind, and accepting towards someone can have, and the importance in doing so. As had the families not taken them in, most likely the child would have never succeeded, but they’re lives would be significantly worse off as
But the believe that disabled children have the ability to recover quickly once they are supported by their families and the community in which they live and feel that they are heroes for trying to recover from the disease. Also in some case, educational integration in some schools stimulates the disabled child to recover because teachers treat him like a non-disabled
Ability to get motivated of what I do is my major drive, I drive my satisfaction from working to make sure I provide the best care for my patients and ensuring to answer all their question when possible while referring others to my senior colleagues. Having everything especially materials resources to carry out daily activity is also that another form of motivation which has enabled the registered nurses to feel satisfied at their jobs. Also the ability to balance between work and life helps me stay motivated all day, working eight hours a day for 5 days in a week helps me to plan my activities to suit my working schedules and still have a lot of time to study and attend to other personal things. The workplace being healthy helps to motivate staff also to achieve a common goal, since all the staff have a good interpersonal relationship, the workplace becomes very convenient and makes working together as a team more profitable and productive by rendering the best healthcare services in the region. USEFULNESS OF THE CONCEPT TO THE CURRENT
I wouldn 't have the same, strong relationships with my closest friends. I didn 't enjoy the hard times in my life, but I 'm glad they happened, I wouldn 't change it. It 's easy to avoid struggles, but it pays off knowing how to handle them. My advice to all parents is to push their kids and encourage them to take risks. Be there for them when they fall, but don 't take away the opportunities for them to develop their own unique identity.
When looking at my family, and the history of what has shaped my life, the main even that I can identify is having my son Hayden out of wedlock. This effected not only in a positive but somewhat of a negative way as well. Even though in our present time, children out of wedlock is not uncommon; However, many people such as the older generations still believe that you should be married before you have children. Some of the issues I encountered changed me and the outlook I have now. There were also positive lessons learned from this experience as well.
Each day that passes, I get more passionate and excited about my future as a medical student, and eventually a surgeon. Up until my junior year of high school, I didn’t know what type of surgeon I wanted to be. I was assigned a junior project, where I researched schools, and most importantly my career plans. That’s when I decided that a reconstructive plastic surgeon is what I wanted to become. I am a perfectionist and I like to take my time so that I can take pride in my work.
There’s no way to understand your life–the privileges you hold–without understanding the past. You must be thankful for all the things your loved ones have done for you, and I’m sure that I am. I can’t imagine my life if I were in my parents’ shoes, if I faced the struggles and hardships they did, and I know I wouldn’t have the courage to be as decisive as they were and are. Their perseverance and determination make me content with my life now, knowing that it could be much worse. Their experiences motivate me to capitalize on what they gave me–to become something.
Nevertheless, we still have aspects that require attention if we will keep our young athletes safe. Part of it has to do with overcoming the culture and attitude associated with concussions and brain injury. Sometimes coaches, athletes and parents still do not treat concussions as seriously as they should. In some cases, athletes will attempt to downplay the symptoms because they want to continue playing. However, you should always take a concussion with the utmost seriousness.
I admire how much knowledge physician assistants obtain throughout their years of schooling since they learn a great amount about many portions of medicine. I always desired to learn as much about science and medicine as I possibly could; therefore, this profession is perfect for me. I also love caring for people and that is what I get to do as a medical professional. My desire to learn and my passion for volunteering and helping others will allow me to be an essential part of the physician assistant profession. I now desire to work in either Infectious Disease, because of the panel, or Orthopedic Surgery, due to my love for working with injuries like breaks, strains, sprains, and tears.
This year, I experienced both a personal and academic obstacle that correlate with one another. In January, I started the year long Medical Assisting program at my school. Prior to beginning this program, I was so excited to be getting a medically centered education, and learning about the field I wanted to expand my career in. After entering the program and learning that there is so much more to medicine than just taking care of patients, I began to lose my interest. This was shocking to me since, my whole life up until this year, I believed I was going to become an amazing medical doctor.
In my undergraduate psychology, we are taught the importance of good listening and communication skills which makes the patient feel important, comfortable and establishes a good doctor-patient relationship. My psychology training allowed me to improve my interpersonal skills that will certainly aid me in your residency program. During my clinical rotations, and observerships in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, I was extremely fortunate to work with professors and physicians that were more than willing to share their knowledge and wisdom with me. From teaching students in medical school to currently tutoring students for USMLE, I have always tried to pass on that knowledge. Throughout my career, I have recognized, learning is
