Looking into the future is what I do most on my free time. Thinking about what career plans I have for myself, where exactly I would like to be and how far I’m going to get. Going to college was the best decision I’ve made. Throughout my whole college experience, I want to work as hard as I can and as much as I can, to achieve an overall great life for myself and my future family. That being said, my career path that I have chosen is, to become a Physical therapist assistant.
One way to gain a better understanding of altruism is to learn through personal and professional experiences. Because altruism is a learned value, the more experiences that one gains further instills the core value within the individual. Throughout my final semester of undergraduate studies, I was granted the opportunity to work closely with a rehabilitation staff complete with two physical therapists, an occupational therapist, a physical therapy assistant and an athletic trainer. The greatest part of the experience was the interaction with patients, this opportunity was highly effective in providing a real professional experience in patient care. This observation experience allowed me to gain a greater understanding of altruism and a realization of just how rewarding this profession

The skills I learn in college will give me more confidence in my future job- which I plan on going into nursing. College will help me understand the right techniques, clinical skills, and people skills to excel in the nursing career, which needs plenty of practice. College will also allow me to discuss and work with other nursing students and teachers who will give me helpful tips and tricks for the workforce down the road.
I realize this dream continues to come closer to reality. I will be graduating high school next year with my Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). This is an advantage as I apply for nursing school. This career best fits me because I will have the necessary qualities and skills needed, I will have the education required, and I am going to significantly impact the lives of others. Human beings have unique characteristics that make them who they are today.
Marybell came to the appointment after a job interview in which she was approved to go through training and believes she has a good chance of getting the job. Marybell still filled out a referall for supported employment services and said she felt better knowing that she would have someone to help her if this job fell through. Marybell says everything seems to be on the positive and this is helping minimize the depression and anxiety symptoms and stablize her mood. Her affect in the appointment was upbeat and happy, much more engaged than previous appointments. The lessening of symptoms was also seen by her being able to get up early to get to job interview and other appointments when she had been oversleeping and also being able to ride public

The last few days I have had the chance to work with Chrystal I wanted to do a quick recap on what we have been able to cover in her training so far and confirm improvement on points Amanda was able to make in her first recap! Chrystal is overall very confident in setting up for appointment, filling out tray covers, getting patients from the front, walking them to the front, and taking photos (we discussed improvements on photos and techniques.) Here are a few appointments we have covered in the last few days. Comfort shorts: She is very eager to jump in! She has done an amazing job at not only fixing the initial reason for the patient coming it but also checking the whole mouth.
Based on the previous research done by Komaratat and Oumtanee (2009) showed that mentorship program had a significant effect on cultivating communication skills and human relationship among the newly graduated nurses.

She suggested it would be a great fit for my professional aspirations. Shadowing her and asking in depth questions to her students in the AGNP program, further affirmed my ability and commitment to compete in the rigorous curriculum. After researching the role of an AGNP and FNP, I learned that now more than ever before, there is a strong reliance on Nurse practitioners for patient care management. For these reasons, I wish to become an Adult Gerontology or Family Nurse Practitioner. I am thankful for my experience as an STNA and Restorative Aide at Darby Glenn in addition to my time at UD.
