The second competency that resonated with me was the ability to “Demonstrate the use of informatics methodologies to advocate for patient autonomy, dignity and rights and in policy development that would support both the patient and the institution.” I am passionate about advocacy. As a nurse and officer, I must often advocate for my patients and the soldiers who serve under my leadership because I recognize keeping them at the center will improve overall outcomes, satisfaction and morale. Despite the challenges and push back I may encounter as an advocate, it is my responsibility to the patient and soldier. The competencies acquired with this specialty will mature my advocacy. Additionally, I will be
I've learned that even though the language is sometimes different, the feelings and emotions are the same. Seeing how brave and stoic some patients can be in a time of pain and uncertainty is truly humbling. I am grateful for the exposure I've had to the vastly different people I help care for at work. I believe it has made me a better person, and I now know what it means to learn something from every interaction. I hope to bring this diverse learning experience to the UA COM and collaborate with fellow classmates to help keep peoples minds open and to approach every patient with the mindset of not only healing but learning something from
What exactly is a nurse? A nurse is someone in the healthcare field who focuses on the well being of individuals, families and communities.I chose this career path because I love to interact with others, and I have a passion for helping those in need of care. As I’ve become more mature, I have realized that I have a natural calling for tending to others’ physical and emotional needs.

My caring nature made it easier to establish a good relationship with people. My friends and family all know that they can count on me to help them out. 4) What do I think will be the hardest part of nursing? I think the hardest part of nursing will be that no matter how much you care about patients there will be some patients that you will not be able to help or save. I know that I will come across patients that no matter how much I educate them about their bad life choices they will not change.
When I was growing up, multiple people questioned me about my future career, and others even pressured me into certain careers. All the influences I have had over time have formed my idea of the perfect occupation, that fits my personality and interests. The careers I have based my future life plans are a pharmacist or a certified registered nurse anesthetist. Both of these careers require a great deal of school and hard work. My decision of these careers was influenced by both of them being within the medical field, and also both focus on helping people.

From this experience, I discovered the bliss that comes from helping patients and the desire to continue to serve them alongside peers. The insights from my time at South Coast Physical Therapy taught me to continually strive to serve patients with selflessness and responsibility.
My development of soft skills started with having a sense respect for the position I was in, and for the individuals I came into contact with. Although I think soft skills are natural, the skills can further be nurtured by having confidence in oneself and abilities through hard work. For example, a nurse will come across someone who is facing adversity each day. It is important to be calm, and know the best way to handle the situation. Not only does the nurse need hard knowledge of how to solve the issue, the nurse must also display soft skills which will instill confidence inside the patient.

Mirroring is a perfect skill nurses can use to uplift a patient and change their mood. Mirroring is mimicking the motions of another, but it’s done without the other person knowing that they are following your lead. In this case, the goal is to get the patient to follow the lead of the nurse as he or she changes their body position to a more upright position that shows positivity. Verbal and nonverbal communication play a role in therapeutic communication, often as techniques. The relationship is based on mutual trust and respect being sensitive to self

I wish to pursue my career in the care profession, due to previous experiences looking after elderly people. Over the years my desire to continue working in the care sector has grown, along with the experiences gained throughout my previous studies. My interest in working with and around new people, has lead me on to completing a Health and Social Care short course, where I gained valuable knowledge on how to look after elderly and the disabled people.

I knew that I wanted to be a doctor since early high school. Experience in a hospital and clinic setting, both personal and professional, have given me many reasons to pursue medicine. Through these viewpoints, I have gained an understanding of patient hardships like financial and travel issues, the grief associated with loss, and the trust that accompanies putting yourself or a loved one into the hands of physicians. These experiences have built empathy and compassion in me that is necessary in medicine. As a patient, I prefer a physician to be knowledgeable on new medical information.

When I help those that cannot help themselves, I am buoyed by a sense of purpose unmatched in my other life pursuits. Becoming a PA is challenging and rewarding and will allow me to work both independently and as part of a team. Although the path ahead will be demanding and challenging, I relish those opportunities because I have become intimate with the profession, undertaken a rigorous academic set of courses and witnessed first-hand how a word can change a life. I think about my grandpa who has recently been diagnosed with congestive heart failure, and I wonder will there be anyone in the medical field who will be able to spend their time with him, to listen to his stories of his grandkids, to tell him a joke and make him laugh? The answer is yes.
