This in return enhanced my motivation to work and to provide quality care to assigned patients. I have gained knowledge from different healthcare disciplines by learning and explaining pediatric related diseases, surgeries, and procedures (e.g. G-tube flushes, dressing changes, appendectomy etc.) to families. Additionally, sometimes families have taught me about some unfamiliar medical conditions that their children have been diagnosed with (e.g. thalamic ganglioglioma) and how to perform certain procedures (e.g. tracheostomy care). This two-way communication taught me the importance of working with the families instead of for them.
If there is no choice would the world be a better place? In the book The Giver Lois Lowry there is something called sameness giving citizens no choice for anything to keep everyone safe in the community. Jonas (protagonist) thought his world was perfect until he became a receiver and realized how corrupted his world truly was and how beautiful life long ago was with color and difference. The three main differences between Jonas’s society and reality are family, release, and memories. Family is one of the most cherished things life has to offer.
Throughout The Great Gatsby, Jay Gatsby is a self subservient character whose inner inhibitions, pleasure seeking lifestyle, and hubris prevent him from caring about how he affects other people. The only people to whom he ever gives the time of day are those who benefit him. Gatsby’s actions throughout the book are exemplary of these traits. The scope of Gatsby’s selfishness goes all the way to his daily life and the people he surrounds himself with. In his life he never really cared about anyone only what they could do for him.
Spirituality is defined as “the aspect of humanity that refers to the way individuals seek and express meaning and purpose and the way they experience their connectedness to the moment, to self, to others, to nature, and to the significant or sacred,” (Puchalski, 2013, p. 493). Repeatedly, studies show spirituality does in fact play a significant role in the health, welfare and recovery of the patient. The patient has always been the center of focus when studies have been conducted on spirituality in healthcare, until recently, when the question arose regarding the impact of spirituality in healthcare on the healthcare worker. Healthcare organizations should be required to incorporate spirituality into their routine treatment regimen in order to inspire happiness in healthcare workers, impact patient health, build stronger relationships with the Catholic Church, support treatment in a whole-person setting and dedicate an entire system to spiritual healthcare to include the patient, clinician, and

Many athletes may say that it is not their job to role models. It may not be their job; however, it is their responsibility to be a good role model.

I chose this competency because it teaches me that I need to have a positive self-esteem and a great attitude towards my patients, colleagues and every situation in order to be able to provide holistic quality care. 2. The article taught me that fitness to practice, includes being accountable and responsible to cope with stress and know how to balance your duty to care for patients; and an equal duty to ensure that fitness to practice competently does not threaten the safety of patients, co-workers or oneself (p. 8). 3. The article widened my understanding that if I am not mentally or physically fit; it’s impossible for me to care for another and meet their needs and can put patients in danger due to errors.
Helping people is what I want to do, but making an actual difference is the real outcome that I
It will help me figure out where I want to go into the medical field. There are so many options in the medical field, and this program will be able to help narrow down that options I have. This program will also take me out of my comfort zone and help me become a leader. I have really bad anxiety and am often nervous to be put into a place where I know no one.

She did everything should could for him so he wouldn’t go down the same path a lot of kids his age were going down. She wanted a better life for Wes. “Well, your grades obviously aren’t bad because you can’t pick this stuff up or because you are stupid, you are just not working hard enough” (75-76). Joy is influential to Wes because she knew that Wes had the ability to learn and to be intelligent, she just needed Wes to push himself to be intrigued in school like how he was in music or outside activities. As Joy tried to get Wes’s grades up she finally came up with a plan to send him to military school.
I always figured that everything was taken care of and life over there was fine. After all, as a citizen of the United States you never really hear about what it is actually like in the war. Most Americans and myself do not realize the everyday struggle and fight our soldiers go through. They risk their lives everyday so that I am able to live my life of freedom here in the United States. I never realized all the work and time they put forth in order to protect our country.
