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). After observing the available options and doing research of the three different programs I decided to attend an AD program at Keiser University. The reason I went this route was because in two years of nursing education it permitted me start working in the clinical setting as a nurse. On April, 2015 I graduated Keiser University Orlando, and on May 2015 I obtained my RN licensure from the state of

Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) programs include advanced coursework in biostatistics, research methods, care of special populations, clinical outcome measures, organizational management, infomatics, and healthcare policy and economics, and completion of a research residency. Some pursue the Doctor of Philosophy as a terminal degree. PhD in nursing is the highest level education which enables you to conduct research and teach.

This class taught me a lot about the medical field. It also provided me with hands on experience. I learned how to take basic care of patients. Even though I did not want to become a nurse, I wanted to work my way up because I believe that to become a doctor, I should be able to delegate duties of the people who work under a physician. During my time there, I learned how to make hospital beds, give bed baths, change patient’s clothes, and other common duties of a nursing assistant.
This theory defines nurses developed skills and the understanding of patient care over the years, with a combination of educational background and personal experiences in the clinical area.

As soon as I entered high school, I started taking all the “medical” and science classes, such as principles of health science, that were required in order to take a CNA program, which is a certified nursing assistant, during my senior year. Taking the CNA program has only amplified my desire to become a nurse. The primary duties of a CNA is to feed, bathe, dress, and take patients’ vital signs; this may seem very basic

Taylor knew from a young age, that this life was not for her. Her mother knew this as well in saying “Mama always said barefoot and pregnant was not my style. She knew.”(3) Taylor was not one to be content with being a man’s housewife. Her strong trait of independence was realized and taking action. This is furthered when the school’s science teacher was able to get Taylor a job at the local hospital.
Plenty of people apply to get accepted into PA school, and the open slots are intensely limited (Pearson). It is important to do exceptionally well in science courses (Pearson). Abby Pearson is currently a student pursuing her Master 's degree at PA school at the University of Oklahoma-Tulsa.

The registered nurse (RN) at the clinical site is responsible for identifying students’ health-related barriers to learning and developing a plan for service to reduce those barriers (BCPS, 2017). There are multiple levels of management above her level in the organization. My preceptor fits into the organizational chart at the lower end of the organizational chart. My RN preceptor has one individual under her scope of authority that she manages once per week. The type of structure BCPS has is formal (Schatz, 2017).
I do not want to be so wrapped up around myself that I miss the beauty of the people around me. I do not like to see other people hurt and will give everything I have to make the quality of life better for them. As an aspiring nurse, my short-term goal is to work endlessly towards obtaining my Bachelor’s degree in nursing.

However, after a few years of working and getting experience I want to go back to school and get my masters in nursing.

Then after graduation they will provide the employers, or both through classes and in the NICU a mentorship or preceptor program. This training may take about six weeks to three months depending on a nurse prior experience. You have to have a lot of school to enter in the NICU, you have to learn everything you can because you will need
