When my relative was diagnosed with alopecia, the doctors were too busy with other patients to treat her. They were so busy that it was hard for us to get an appointment with them. During that time, I wished that there was an assistant to the doctor who could treat my relative and help her get through her toughest moments. That night, I went home and researched about doctors having assistants who can
1. As I sit back and think of the many things I have learned through personal events, engagements, observations, or opinions while walking through the different avenues of life, I realize how much of my pathway has been aligned with the social work profession. This came as a surprise since the social work profession was not the initial goal. I moved to Clovis, NM, to attend Clovis Community College nursing program in order to work as a case manager. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I had to decline my acceptance and turned my focus to another career where I could help geriatrics or veterans.
A person might want to travel to a certain place or meet their idols before passing away. By knowing of their conditions, patients would hurry up on achieving their goals and dreams in this life. On the contrary, a patient that is not notified of their health won’t hurry up the process as they would think that they could do it in the future (“Honesty in Medicine: Should Doctors tell the
When I came to FAMU my major was pre-physical therapy. I chose to study pre-physical therapy because I wanted to work in the health field and assist people. I then changed my major within a semester of attending FAMU because I realized physical therapy is not something I was interested in doing. I would watch my cousin study, go to clinicals, and put cardiopulmonary science on such a high echelon. I then inquired about respiratory therapy with her and became interested in the profession.
In this essay I am excited to discuss what I have discerned from Socrates’s dictum; “the unexamined life is not worth living”. I was first exposed to Socrates as a freshman during the humanities class I was taking, and his teachings made a considerable impact on my life. Many of my own outlooks towards life can be considered a consequence of the wisdom I found in Socrates 's words. I am convinced that Socrates believed that the purpose of life was to acquire knowledge and understanding of oneself and the world.
Personal Statement I am interested in studying for a degree in the Mental Health Nursing in your university, and I would like to make my career in this noble profession. I first considered nursing as a career some years ago, after I lost my father to a chronic kidney disease. The role played by the nurses in terms of care while he was in hospital and after his death was quite overwhelming. Although I had my first degree in Agricultural Economics, but this nothing in compare to the passion I later developed for nursing after the death of my father. I have since developed myself in health and social care sector by training and updating my skills.
I feel that there still exist psychological, cultural and social therapeutic elements to medicine that have not been exhaustively researched. I intend to pursue the connection of these three elements. I want to go to medical school to achieve growth, maturity and expertise. I need to go to medical school so that in future I can be life changer, to be someone who is capable and of gives back to the community. I want to be an example to others.
Some may think nurses are doctors right hand and should do as the doctor says, but in the past few years nursig has taken big monumental steps into becoming its own profession and have its own regulatory body with its own code of ethics. Another reason I chose this topic is because I am currently studying to become a nurse, and the first few courses were just about opening our eyes to the possibilities that nursing has to offer and to enlighten us on what nursing is really about, care for the individual. and i got the sense that the professors had to convince the students who were already in that major that nursing wasn’t as it was. because people still hold a grudge and an unreasonable image of what it used to be. And the evidence is clear in that there is a lack in the nursing profession.
Last year, my Osteopathic application was made in haste and was submitted as a back up plan to failing Allopathic applications. As a part of completing the primary application and also preparing for Osteopathic interviews, I discovered that the Osteopathic philosophy appeared to be a better fit for me. Shadowing an Osteopathic physician as well as an Allopathic physician has solidified this observation. Last year’s failed attempt to gain entry to medical school has been soul crushing and has forced me to consider other career paths. During this period, I have examined many options.
The reason is that I think with experience, you gain knowledge and untimely I want someone who has the experience and the knowledge. I also do not want someone who is doing my check for the first time. If that physician has found new treatment (s), I want to make sure that they have done the correct treatment and have the adequate amount of experience in order to do my treatment. The experience could involve, being a guest speaker at medicals school or medical conferences. The reason behind these two places is that, at medical school you are inspiring the youth who aspires to be a medical doctor.
I am in the Medical Billing and Coding Program. For the past year or so I have been very indecisive on what I wanted to go back to school for. I started off going to school for sports medicine and decided it was just not for me. Every time I would push myself to apply for school I would always back out. My aunt is a coder at the local hospital here.
I took all the sciences I could, eventually majoring in Biochemistry in college to understand the workings of the body. I always thought I wanted to be a pathologist. I was aware of pathology assistants but was unaware of what their job entailed. In my junior year of undergrad, I was fortunate enough to find out that my college worked with a teaching hospital, Montefiore Medical Center. Through them, I was able to obtain an internship in the Surgical
This year, I experienced both a personal and academic obstacle that correlate with one another. In January, I started the year long Medical Assisting program at my school. Prior to beginning this program, I was so excited to be getting a medically centered education, and learning about the field I wanted to expand my career in. After entering the program and learning that there is so much more to medicine than just taking care of patients, I began to lose my interest. This was shocking to me since, my whole life up until this year, I believed I was going to become an amazing medical doctor.
