I am getting use to navigating through Cerner to get to what I need for my patients. I still need to gain confidence in myself and trust that I know how to perform skills. I love my nurse Abbi and feel she is really good about explaining procedures, policies, how to admit new patients and discharge patients. She is a bit of a control freak so she doesn’t really allow me to do things on my own but I know I can learn the skills when I get hired wherever I go next. Abbi has been the only nurse who really takes the time to explain things to you instead of treating you like a task person.
Amelia’s personal opinion supposed sharing skills and abilities learned was a smart way to share her passion with the community. However, if Amelia refused to share such skills, numerous women would be scared to try. Women following a passion, results in the best possible outcome. Overall, Amelia on no occasion preferred the choice which lead out of a difficult situation. Nevertheless, selected the route which provided the greatest possible
I very detail orient when describing or explain something. Next, feeling I was always told I think with my heart. I’m a very understanding person and very empathetic to people feeling. Which I know can sometimes can be bad because you have some people who will see this as weakness. This always led me to career choice of being a social worker because I just want to help people that in a bad situation.
For her, managers and directors should be supportive and encouraging every nurse to further their education, either professional organizations, certification, career ladder or promotion. Authenticity is essential because trust is harder to gain, and other managers and directors can be dishonest and untrue to their profession. Calmness and maturity is an important factor of being authentic. However, managers and directors can utilize authenticity without abusing their power and unnecessarily breaking someone’s position or career. An example of good leader is genuine, values other’s opinion and can greatly influence
Audrey Lorde discusses the importance of speaking up and breaking the silence in ‘The Transformation of Silence into Language and Action,’ a chapter from the ‘Sister Outsider.’ “What is most important to me must be spoken, made verbal and shared, even at the risk of having it bruised or misunderstood” (Lorde 40). Lorde acknowledges the power within the system but doesn’t allow the fear to limit her. “and I begin to recognize a source of power within myself that comes from the knowledge that while it is most desirable not to be afraid, learning to put fear into a perspective gave me more strength” (Lorde 41). The fear we so often face, whether it be from our race, religion, class, status, sexual orientation, gender, age or ability, we need to understand that knowledge is power. That with knowledge comes the ability to gain power.
Awilda Pedraza, bilingual mother of two, has been in her field of counseling for many years now. She is a Penn State and Kutztown student who is know working in the mental health care. Working since 1997 she has learned many new important tactics and ways to living the life she owns today. Pedraza states, “Work is a way to provide for my family and a place to help influence others.” Her typical day at the job is giving her clients the advice they need to make it in their everyday life day, but Awilda does more than talk to her patients. She has gone far enough to even help a mother therapeutically meet the requirements for Children 's Services and regain custody of her children.
Because Dot cared about Harry’s well-being she let her values and opinions get involved which led to her speaking negatively about Harry’s mother. Before documenting the encounter at Harry’s house Dot should have reflected on how she felt and then documented. Once Dot’s head was clear and free from any negativity she could have made a more professional note that stated her concern for Harry’s well-being and the next steps that she would take to assist Harry and his family with getting the help they needed. As a social worker we not only have to understand our client
A patient may ask for a prescription which might be way beyond our expertise, I don’t think even PCP would do it. She explained to me how hard it is to find a good job and also it is hard to find a group that would open a position for NPs. I asked “What issues you find as an advanced practice nurse that are interesting” When I asked her what is interesting about your job as NP, she states that she is enjoying teaching patients, seeing a wide range of age and type of patients, the patients care and differential diagnosis and also everyday learning something new. We spoke about the working environment and she was very happy about it and how well and convenient it is. Working hours work load were very manageable for her.
I worked directly with patients diagnosed with various psychiatric illnesses in groups designed to assist in rehabilitation and teaching activities of daily living. In these groups I helped with a wide range of activities such as assisting the patients with stimulating crafts, and encouraging them to participate in exercises and games, and answered questions related to the activities. Continuing my volunteer experience with occupational therapists I worked at Encore, an assisted living and rehabilitation setting. Here I worked with geriatric clients with both neurological and orthopedic impairments. I also spent time volunteering at Therapeutic and Recreational Riding Center, Inc. working with an occupational therapist in facilitating Hippotherapy to incorporate equine movement into treatment.
My development of soft skills started with having a sense respect for the position I was in, and for the individuals I came into contact with. Although I think soft skills are natural, the skills can further be nurtured by having confidence in oneself and abilities through hard work. For example, a nurse will come across someone who is facing adversity each day. It is important to be calm, and know the best way to handle the situation. Not only does the nurse need hard knowledge of how to solve the issue, the nurse must also display soft skills which will instill confidence inside the patient.
