I have had the privilege to interview The Senior Chief Nurse Administrator/Health Research Analyst of the James A. Haley VA Medical Center. Dr. Jola Massengale Worked as a Registered Nurse for over twenty years, and in 2011 she earned her doctorate in Nursing Health Administration. Short after her graduation, she was promoted to Chief of Nursing Research, and two years later, she became the Senior Chief Nurse Administrator/Health Research Analyst. She was chosen for this interview because, in 2016, she was one of the key leaders to revamp the way the organization conducted their Las strategic planning process. Although the meeting was scheduled for one hour, it only lasted thirty minutes since Dr. Massengale was called away by the Hospital
Tuesday, March 29th, 2016: Montana State Hospital The day began with a care conference by an interdisciplinary team (psychologists, social worker, nurses, and psych techs). Every patient on the wing was discussed about their current situation, behavioral problems, or change in care plan. The nursing process seemed to be utilized when dealing with these problems. The problem was assessed by the entire team, the root cause was determined, a plan was established to implement, and then would be evaluated the next day. Following the care conference, we observed an intake of a new patient.
Being able to work with both children and adults has allowed me to broaden my view of what the field of speech language pathology will consist of. During my freshman year, in the spring semester of 2014, I was able to volunteer in Marquette’s clinic and take data for an SLP graduate student who was working with an adult with an intellectual disability. This experience allowed me to broaden my basic knowledge of the field of speech-language pathology. Also this past fall semester of 2016, I was able to work with an SLP graduate student in Marquette’s clinic, where we provided therapy to a preschool-aged client. We worked together in creating activities to target his speech language disorder, using both hybrid and clinician-directed approaches throughout the semester.
Maria is my boss at the counseling center and has been for three years now. I work under her as a sexual assault peer educator. I have weekly meetings with her and work with her when planning certain events that the SAPES may be doing throughout the semester such as the sex positive event that was held last spring. I have gotten to know Maria fairly well, making this interview feel like just another one of our weekly meetings. In conclusion, I was truly blessed to have Ms. Wydra be so generous with her time to allow me to interview her for this paper and or class.
At each staff meeting that I attend I have been learning a lot about what other staff members do at the agency. I also learned about wellness checks that are conducted with each patient. The wellness checks helps the providers identify the health status of each patient. Furthermore, this week I have been reconnecting with patients, that I conducted care plans with, through follow up phone calls. The people that I have been able to communicate with have made progress toward their goals.
Keneatha is a polite and professional candidate. She most recently worked for Liberty Hall as an Operation Counselor. She managed residence, units, maintained documents, and verified that all information was current and up to date. They decided a couple weeks ago to downsize until the new program is up and running and she is looking for a long term stable position and get away from the correctional field. Previously, she had worked for Damar Services as a Direct Care Support.
Throughout the last three years, I have worked with the elderly in a nursing home called Aase Haugen as a certified nursing assistant. Since then, I have gained a tremendous amount of respect for registered nurses. Their leadership, passion, and commitment has inspired me to provide great health care to patients now and in my future career as a nurse. I am currently a freshman that has been accepted into the nursing program at Luther College. I think I would be a good candidate for this scholarship, because I put a tremendous amount of heart into my job and truly enjoying helping and assisting the elderly.
The best thing I had accomplishment in high school is doing my 200 over hours in the Mercy Medical Hospital. Doing this was a big accomplishment because I learned how to communicate with the people in the community and also I had also learned new things on how to take care of the patients their to make them feel comfortable while they where their. How I earned these hours was by going once a week and doing four hours and I help people locate where they need to go and I also go to the floors and help them get their things ready when they are about to get discharged. Also, when I was able to work on the weekend and during my breaks I had done eight hours each day I took the extra hours to show that I am capable that I wanna help the people

We wanted to get to know Nickerson more, so we asked her a couple of questions regarding her college decision and life post-graduation: Where did you grow up? Answer: I grew up in Hingham Massachusetts, where I have lived for
I had the pleasure of interviewing an LPN named Bernadette Rogers which is employed at Northwell Health Stern Family Center for Rehabilitation. In this interview, I learned that a systematic approach to how you began your day can determine how efficiently you perform your job duties. In addition, there are several elements that surprised me about this position. The first thing was the two-week training period that she underwent. I would have thought that the facility would have provided a lengthier orientation for a newly graduated nurse.
