Dorothy Smith is new to South Shore Hospital, and I realized I have not had time to sit and talk with her about what she believes, where she came from, and where she hopes to be in the future. She has held her current position as manager in the South Shore Hospital emergency room for eight months. She came to this position from Tufts Medical Center. Dorothy has her MSN/MBA in HCA.
She graduated from Shawnee State university in a Bachelor’s of Arts in Social Sciences and received her Maters at Marshall University in Counseling. The second questioned asked was how long she has been a clinical supervisor? She has been a supervisor for fourteen years. Question number three was her personal theory in clinical supervision. She discussed how she does not use just one theory of clinical supervision.

(page. 25). This passage shows that the Mother used to live in a comfortable place, and she neither had to cook nor to clean.
First, clinical nurse specialist started in the late 1800’s. Mostly only women would work as a clinical nurse specialist, only a few males would be a CNS. Clinical Nurse specialist started because people wanted a more advanced type of nurse to help more patients more in person and personally. In 1943, they were first called nurse clinician by Frances Reiter, who was the chairperson at a medical college. A clinical nurse specialist has to teach, research, consult, manage with their patients and their family.
Since I was a young parent I worked in Buffalo until the late ninety’s, and moved to Sacramento CA and for twenty years leaving my daughter by her choice, and I took her young two year old son. I learned what humility was. My first job was working in a nursing home I received my nursing certificate, working with mental and physical patients, I learned a lot of empathy. Working with Transitional Living Community Support, taught me about mental health, and homeless, and how people suffer everyday with this disease, and how being homeless is not always by choice. While, working at TLCS I worked with CARE Connection, a program to recruit homeless hoboes and, homeless from the railroads and from under the byways and bridges.

To have a better understanding of nursing from a person who has been in the field longer, I interview Ms. Santa, Faulkner University’s school nurse. She is located in the school’s gym and is able to accommodate every Faulkner student, faculty, and staff.

British law forced everyone in Williamsburg to go to the Bruton Parish Church every month. The church was a place to worship, a cemetery for the imperative people and families in Williamsburg, the government held meetings of all kinds in the church and citizens could attend services every single day. Firstly, when people go to church they are most likely worshiping the lord. In Williamsburg the community held services every day and on Sunday, four services. Secondly, the church also provides a cemetery for the wealthier people and were buried in a better environment.
I also spoke to my school nurse, a LPN, who recommended that I take the nursing route but to still pursue my M.D. I took her advice and after research I found that a Registered Nurse (R.N.) in New York makes about $63,718 annually- according to Pay scale. In only 4 years of school I would be making about half of a doctor’s salary and doing the exact thing I longed to do for years. After this research I decided to apply to Delaware State University’s nursing program where I am now studying to become a Registered Nurse.
My father set the dream of his son going to college and obtaining a degree. And my mother set the standard for hard work when she had to raise two children, by herself- after my father had passed away. She set the standard by being a single mother, working two full time jobs as a Registered Nurse and getting her Bachelors of Science in Nursing. Something that took her my whole life to obtain. She wanted to be a Nurse since she was sixteen and never lost that drive to obtain that goal.
