After seeing my mom being dependent on medical care for the rest of her life, my interest in medicine began to grow. I used to watch when travel nurses and physical therapists would come to my house to provide her with medical care. I have experienced various procedures such as flushing a port

Gibbs model reflects on six defined stages encouraging the nurse to think systematically, each stage provides structure and a methodical understanding of reflection throughout.

Throughout this reflection my patient will be given anonymity using a false name to protect her identity and respect her confidentiality, she will be referred to as Mrs Glover (NMC Code, 2015).

I completed an emergency medical technician program at Valencia College. I started working at Florida Hospital Orlando (FHO) as a psychiatric technician in their behavioral health unit. While working at FHO I meet many nurses, I saw what they did, and desire grew on me to become a registered nurse. The path into becoming a registered nurse was a very confusing process for me because there are three entry levels of nursing, the bachelors science nursing (BSN) degree route, the associate degree (AD) route, and the diploma in nursing, which is basically a hospital based nursing school (Black, 2010, p. 60).

Lupus can range in series from mild to life-threatening from day to day and test to test. This disease should always be treated by a doctor and most people with lupus can lead a full life. Consulting in someone who specializes in diseases of the joints and muscles like a rheumatologist, generally treats people with lupus. A combination of primary doctor, dermatologist, cardiologist, nephrologist and rheumatologist will review all the signs and symptoms followed by family medical history and various laboratory test such as urine, blood and tissue biopsies.
This nurse’s plan as a registered nursing and student is to become an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP) with a specialty certification in Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP). The geographical area in the state of California is in a community with patients having health disparities and it is an underserved population. Healthy people 2020 identified patients with healthy disparities as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender, personnel living in nursing homes with disabilities, individuals living in rural areas, and women households with children (Centers for Disease and Control, 2015).

The nurse practitioners undergo their training through nursing schools, whereas the physician assistants study in medical schools (Nurse Practitioner Schools, 2015). The physician assistants need to qualify through a general medical examination.
Role of Advanced practice nurse A telenursing survey in 2005 was conducted around the world to assess how Advanced Practice Nurses, APN’s, perceived the impact of telenursing and the future implications. Seventy-five percent reported that telenursing could impact the nursing shortage. APNs reported 18 different practice sites for their telenursing roles and most of their time was spent in the following functions via telehealth: consultation, administration, in-person/face-to-face direct patient care, telemedicine direct patient care, supervision, research, and teaching nursing or other students in health care occupations (Fairchild, Varghese, Deickman, & Castelli , 2014).
