But my mom still struggled a little. During Christmas my mom had to work to get us things. My Grandma knew that she was very sick, yet she still does all she could to get us all the stuff we wanted. I still have never gotten that much stuff I wanted today for Christmas. She died a month later and she left things to all her sisters,brother, and cousins.
I want to be the nurse who always listens to patients, when they think their voices aren’t heard. I want to be the nurse who is willing to hold a patient’s hand and sit with them while they cry. I want to be the nurse willing to give 100% of myself to my patient’s every shift. I want to be a nurse because there is absolutely no other profession that will give me greater happiness. Nursing education has been challenging for me, but I do not give up on my dreams.
I learned a lot from those nurses but could not decide which unit was meant for me. Nevertheless, I applied to the University of Texas at Arlington’s nursing program and was accepted in Fall 2014. That opened the doors to countless opportunities for me to find my spark. Through my lectures and clinical rotations, I was taught that being a nurse meant ensuring the safety of every patient and working arduously to maintain their quality of life. With that principle in mind, I practiced my skill as a nursing student on every unit that I was assigned to.
She sadly passed away mid October due to weak lungs and many other complications. As I stood in front of her bed in the hospital watching her life slowly slipping away from her hands. I stared into her eyes, remembering all of the things she had done to help me be the person I am today. She was a person who would step up to any challenge no matter how big and would finish it with a smile on her face. From my grandma, I learned how to be patient and persistent.
Kailee Katt There are many reasons why I have chosen to pursue a profession in healthcare, mainly because I enjoy helping others, I am very personable, and I like to make an impact on the lives of others. However, the primary reason why I want to become a nurse is because of past influences. My mother, and both grandmothers have all been in the medical field as nurses, but the one person who has had the most influence on me, is my doctor, Chris Chapman. He is like a grandfather to me, and truly has had an impact on my life. He has been my doctor for as long as I can remember, due to my mother being his nurse.
Ever since the age of three, she had been a problem solver. She remembers manipulating the adults, aka parents, and diverting their attention to her hurt leg as she faked a fall from the shove of her father. Scene 1, take 1 was a success and their excessive arguing came to an end with the tears of a broken little girl. She constantly had to be strong and always on guard as a child. Her mother sent her to the first day of elementary school without registering her as a student.
I strongly believe that I am going to succeed by being a pediatric nurse. With the support of my mother and the right potential in myself, then I am going to succeed in life. I’ve wanted to become a nurse ever since I was 9 years old. This is what I want to stick to for many more upcoming years. I encourage as many people as possible to become a nurse but I Understand if you’re not into this as a career.
For the latter two of those she required extra schooling provided by her employers. You can also become an operating room nurse, a rehabilitation specialist nurse, or a nurse practitioner, the possibilities are truly endless. When asked what has helped Julie Mills Smith the most in her career she said “personal experience and on the job training. School doesn’t address the realities of the job or teach you how to handle the emotional toll it can take on you.” To be an effective nurse you have to contain the knowledge of the class room and encompass physical and mental strength, compassion and empathy of many before
There were days, especially in mental health, when all a patient needed was someone to care about them and to be a little nice to them. Someone to see them for more than whatever their diagnosis was. My patients were never just a “diagnosis”. They were all individual human beings. I have always had a kind and compassionate approach with every patient I have ever taken care of while still maintaining my professional role as a certified nursing assistant.
The reason I chose to become a nurse was due to my strong desire to help those in need. The profession of nursing, itself, is guided by human dignity, altruism, trust, and compassion (Shahriari, Mohammadi, Abbaszadeh, & Bahrami, 2013). I realized that the underlying values of nursing are parallel to my own personal philosophies, and therefore played a role in my decision to becoming a nurse. However, the overlap in values was not the only factor in my decision. Four years ago, my mother became pregnant with her third child and I was her support system throughout her entire pregnancy.
Nurses see people during all aspects of life. Whether it is one of the best moments such as child birth, or one of the less fortunate times such as a family realizing their eldest member is nearing the end of their life, a nurse is there through it all. It was my mother’s fascinating stories such as these that made me realize that I could not imagine myself working in any other
Although, I thoroughly enjoy working for Children’s Homecare especially the families I work for, I cannot advance my career without further education. In the last few years, I have found it difficult to work more hours, take care of my family and go to school. My husband works hard to provide for our family, nonetheless, in today’s world you need both parents working to financially make ends meet. I am scheduled to graduate May of 2018 from Stark State College with an associate’s degree in nursing. I plan to continue my education and work on my bachelor degree in nursing, while working as an RN.
Until I decided to go to Lenape, I had not had any plans for what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. When I learned I could graduate as a Certified Nurse Assistant, I was interested immediately. However, I knew I wanted to accomplish more than that. I love learning and I have a lot of empathy so I knew healthcare would be a perfect match for me. I chose nursing specifically because I love the idea of taking care of people, and nurses make a huge difference and have such an impact on the patients and their loved ones lives.
I am writing on behalf of my mother Jennifer Motlagh. I am currently a college sophomore and live with my mother. She has helped me tremendously since I am a full time student and has helped me out financially, while attending school. My parents are currently going through a long drawn out divorce and seeing my mother in this emotional turmoil, she has made it her one true goal to make sure her children have had the best. She has always put her family first and has always made it her goal to make sure she can support us.
Losing my mother was the most devastating thing I had to cope with my mother and I was really close she taught me so many things and most of all she taught me how to be a woman she has always been there for me no matter what my mother had battled congestive heart failure and chronic asthma since birth, but,she was a strong woman and she never lets her illnesses stop her from enjoying her life and being a good mother growing up I had to always see my mom either sick or in the hospital. MY mom had been through so much with her health for year 's but, one day she had a bad asthma attack at home and ended up going to the hospital where they admitted her and shortly after being admitted my mother had a massive heart attack and fell into a coma while
