Also, I am going to start getting paid when I am still doing my schooling because you have to start as a Registered Nurse. I would work to improve my patients and their family’s community and make them feel happy and healthy. They would be able to trust me and feel protected when they are around me to make my job easier. The biggest reason I chose this career is because I love children. I would love to help them and bond with them.
I am interested in pursuing my education in obtaining my Master’s in Social Work because I have a strong passion for helping people and I can give back to my community. I have a passion to help others and committed to helping people function the best they can in their surroundings, meaning that I can provide direct services to people in their homes or place of work, helping people through social service organizations, and working towards change to improve social conditions. Like any helping profession, i.e. Doctors, Teachers, etc. Social Work seeks to help people overcome some of life’s most difficult challenges. I want to improve the well-being of people and society.
I feel like communication skills and being comfortable with many views are both great necessary qualities to have when dealing with a diverse college campus. I am very open minded and respect other people’s views even though they might not agree with my views. I possess great social skills and find myself very personable. I get along well with multiple different people which I think would be a great addition to the counseling team. While in college, I have demonstrated my
The career that I am interested in pursuing is that of a patient representative. I am currently on track, educationally, to pursue this career. With the help of the personality and traits questionnaire I was able to learn what is expected of a patient representative and if my personality is compatible with this profession. Becoming a patient representative will open doors to other career goals that I have. Kaplan University Career Services will be beneficial to me when it is time to create a resume and practice job interviews.
Looking back, I recall that I was accepted to go to a mortuary science program in Boston to be a mortician upon graduation. With enthusiasm, I was planning to take the train to school. Believe me, I worked with the guidance counselor and thought, and this was my plan. Sadly, I remember the day my father told me that they could not afford to send me to Boston and instead, they wanted me to attend a local community college first to take classes, and they would help me in the next couple years. Thinking back, I was crushed; I expected to be able to attend the college of choice for my friends.
It’s been a rough journey trying to find a career that I am interested in for my profession. When I discovered occupational therapy, I didn’t know much about the field. A family friend of mine was the one who introduced, because I always knew that I wanted to work with families and infants. I then did some research and found occupational therapy that specializes in infants. I wasn’t aware that you could be an occupational therapist that works with infants, until the end of my senior year of high school.
Portfolio Part B: Reflection on the overall learning within the module Prior to starting this course the MA Social Work course and the PPSWP module I felt very confident in the aspects of communicating effectively and working with a diverse range of people, and after the reading the professional capabilities framework I believe that I hold the same personal values which is expected of a social worker. The PCF6 talks about the importance of critical reflection and reflective practice explaining that it helps improve accountability, professional development and helps to you understand your own tacit knowledge and gain new knowledge, which improves outcomes and experiences for social workers. (Capabilities within the PCF, 2016) For this reflection
Good relationships promote change, unity, and equity. My role here will be to engage clients to work as partners and enhance their interpersonal relationships in the healing process. Friendships and partnerships that begin in the rehabilitation centers always blossom even after the clients are out in the community. This helps in restoring the functionality of the individuals themselves, their families and the community as a whole. Achieving such a scenario will require my patience and dedication as I attempt to achieve positive changes in the lives of the clients.
They need to be aware of the disadvantage as well, in that case they know what they’re signing up for. In A Career As a Social Worker, the book tackles the pros of social working in the chapter “Attractive Features of This Career.” The vocational guide cites that this job has personal satisfaction attached to it. Social workers get to interact with different people with specific needs daily. There’s great emphasis on noble intention, “they get to witness the resilience of the human spirit in action, which can be very inspiring.”
In my opinion, for many new graduates, practicing effective delegation and supervision, building relationship and trust within the healthcare team and creating a supportive work environment is very important. Therefore, it supports knowledge development and integration. Nursing leader takes a proactive role and approach to implementing changes that will improve patients care and clinical process. Moreover, he/she advocates for
The key competency that I have is my ability to care because I genuinely care about how a person feels and who they are as an individual. Not only being a recreational therapy major have I grown as an individual in this characteristic but, also working in residence life as a community assistant here at Slippery Rock have grew as a person. I learned the value of these characteristics because just like how in the professional field you have clients/ residents and I already have to learn how to build this kind of relationship with my residents. I have to build this relationship so that they feel comfortable in their living environment.
That is what helped in the past and I plan to continue doing it throughout the RN school. Obtaining my RN is an investment both intellectually as well as financially. Once I complete the course, I hope to have a broader knowledge in the field of nursing which I can use in the

Her passion is working with gifted students. She is capable of sharing her achieve strength with these students by pushing them further.
My first year at Brookdale I joined the ALP program because I didn’t get a good grade on the Accuplacer. I decided to join this program so I wouldn’t have to take a English course next semester and be so behind. I joined Brookdale because I didn’t know what I wanted to do as a major and also didn’t know what four year college to go to. I didnt think Brookdale was going to all that great
