We call it PUPs, and I did participate in the group with other nurses. We were a team of around 25 nurses, and every other month we had to get together and visit all the patients in the hospital. We had to check for pressure ulcers, and possible hospital acquired pressure ulcers. We did measure everything from patient diet, condition, mobility, etc. We also helped nurses in each floor if they had any questions about how to handle a patient with pressure ulcers.
After graduating with this degree in 1993, I worked in a mental health clinic training chronically mental ill patients to live independently. Showing care and empathy toward my clients was natural for me. My drive to help people became even more obvious when my terminally ill in-laws moved in with
The Show Made me decide that I want to Work in the Medical field. My All time goal is to Become A Trauma Surgeon for Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA. The Main reason I would Like to go into the medical field is because I like to help people. I have been Volunteering for A Football And Cheerleading Program Called Brockton Junior Boxers for five years. While volunteering I work with all the players
I took a nursing assistant class through a dual enrollment program. I performed clinical hours at Golden Living Center in Rome, Georgia for CNA training. I took this class not because I wanted to become a nurse but because this was the only healthcare class left that I had not taken. I did not want to go senior year without taking a class in healthcare because I did not want to forget important skills that I had learned in prior classes. This class taught me a lot about the medical field.
I attended nursing school and earned an LPN license, but I was determined to get my BSN. I knew nursing school would not be cheap, so I looked for a job as a patient care tech in a hospital. I knew I wanted to work someday in a hospital. I found a job on a pediatric floor and fell in love with my new job. This floor also has a special hall just for cancer patients.
With the support of the Allied Health sponsor, I applied to be a medical science student at the University of Louisiana at Monroe President’s Academy the following summer. Through this program, I participated in college-level labs and professional externships specifically tailored for students with my interests. I was challenged to apply the knowledge I learned through solving a hypothetical pandemic with a group of other students. This experience showed me that I do have what it takes to be successful in the medical
I rounded daily with every department (ICU, MSU, PNU, L&D, BHU) and met every patient. I would receive report from each department Charge Nurse and CNS (who was also novice). I spot checked documentation in the Essentris computerized charting and randomly would check on drug administration. I was involved with disease and discharge management and followed up on all referral consults and processes. I would meet with every CNS quarterly and work on their clinical challenges and also what Process Improvement Projects they were currently working on.
In his weekends he would always spend his time volunteering in different places like daycares, nursing homes, or volunteer work through his clubs. His senior year he spent it working in a biology lab working with Beta Cells. Once he graduated he had a 3.4 GPA. After that, he applied to a nursing program in order to become a registered nurse. In order to have a better chance of being accepted into the program, he retook several classes which were prerequisites for nursing school that summer.
Over the last ten years of working within the health care sector I’ve worked closely with mental health nurses, listening to their personal experiences in a wide variety of settings. Extensive research, work experience and personal experiences of mental health issues such as my son’s recent diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder has inspired me to pursue a mental health nursing qualification. Mental health nursing promotes and highlights relevant skills that I have acquired over the years that are crucial in this role. Courage to trust my own judgement and competence to make decisions in often highly stressful situations has lead me to be promoted to team leader at work.
The main reason I chose to study the Diploma of Nursing is because I wanted to upgrade my profession and skills. I work as a Personal Care Assistant (PCA) at an aged care facility, there I interact many Enrolled Nurses and see how different their scope of practice between a PCA and an Enrolled Nurse. Since I am young and working part- time I thought I would be best if I started this course as I could work and give adequate time to studying. One another influence that caused me to choose a career in the health field was my grandmother was a nurse in India. As a child I would always visit her during work and she would take me around the hospital and I can faintly remember the hospital setting and how it is so different now.

The first thing I would say about today was thought provoking. What I mean by that is it appears that everyone has different organizational skills. Plus not everyone thinks at the same speed or reacts in the same way. Anyways, I noticed throughout today that I was sometimes one step ahead of my nurse. I was even able to help him find different areas of the charting when he got confused, where something in particular was in the charting.
I believe I could be an Emergency Room Nurse because I love the idea of working in a fast pace environment. There must be an adrenaline rush working as an Emergency Room nurse. I enjoy having to think on my feet and having to react in the spur of the moment. I also love the idea of being able to see new patients with different problems every day. I enjoy the idea of going to work and not every day being the same at all.
Flight Nurses People will forget what you said, People will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. Being a nurse in general is one of the most important jobs in the world. You can either make or break someone's life at anytime.. I know that nursing in general can be very stressful and can also take up most of your time, but it will make you feel a lot better knowing that you just saved someone's life. I have seen nurses help my family members in their best times and also their worst times.
