As a dedicated student, dismissal from Kaplan University has been an eye-opener. While I blame no one other than myself, it has been the hardest year of my life. My education has been hindered this last term due to a family illness. I failed to acknowledge the importance of my studies and allowed the sickness of my grandfather, my caregiver, to effect me. My grandfather moved in with me from Arizona to be closer to Sloan Kettering Hospital after being diagnosed with Lymphoma.
My first semester of college was quite rough, as early on a tumor was found in my mom’s hip. I was forced to drive home and help my mother and family out, making my transition into college extremely difficult for a while. My two Q drops my first semester were not because of my inability to understand the work, for when I retook calculus I got an 89 in it, but rather the difficulty I had dealing with this tough time and transitioning into college. Sadly, I also had to use two Q drops last semester with some scheduling issues with my afternoon classes because of that business I was running to pay for my tuition and necessities. I had to make a sacrifice here due to the fact that majority of my family 's money has been going towards medical expenses and my dad had lost his job.
My college years are over and I’m trying to get in to a hospital to start working a real job. The job I had at the coffee shop was terrible. Sometimes I wanted to quit, but then I realized that I need it to get money for my needs and wants. Age 23 My life had gotten a lot better over the year. The job at the hospital became mine.
As a result of Barbra selling her business, she was forced to conform to these new set of regulations as proposed by Universal, the medical company in which she sold her practice too. Upon reviewing this case it appears that Barbara is mostly frustrated with the decline in patient care. However, I think they’re ways to oblige to the new set of rules while still providing the best patient care possible. For example, every patient is billed for a minimum of an hour, utilize this opportunity by maybe incorporating a modality and/or manual therapeutic techniques as opposed to just providing therapeutic exercises. Home exercise programs may be given to new patients when they are discharged after meeting their insurance limits.
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.
I miss them so much, the last time I had spoken to them was right before I left on June 28th, 1914. In December of 1913, I was in college at the University of Birmingham Medical school for 4 years and had just got my bachelor 's degree whenever they recruited me to start training for the war. It was very hard on not just me but my family to. Just knowing that I would be gone for who knows long is hard. I was on month 7 of training whenever I got the call that I would be heading to war that day.
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, again, was too little to go through this devastation of him having cancer and eventually dying, but being a widow and having her husband die when you still have many years to go has major effects on you and your life. One of them can be your relationship with God. This past semester I asked my grandma this question for my religion class and just from this simple conversation I had with her, I learned a lot about her relationship with God and her faithfulness. “Why do you believe in God?” “I believe in God because when I was going through breast cancer and the death of your grandfather and when I felt alone in those times God was always with me. I might sound weird, but sometimes I just talk to God and I don’t even need a response because I know, deep down in my heart, that he is there for me,” Donna replied getting emotional.
My father has recently become unemployed, and my mother is still recovering from surgery as I write this essay and is also unable to work. I know my parents support my decision to study abroad, but they must prioritize the day-to-day needs of my siblings and their medical bills, and as such they cannot possibly afford to aid me financially. Unfortunately, I have continued to put off participation in international education because of financial hardship. I distinctly remember during the fall of my freshman year of college not being able to afford a one-week international exchange program. I felt devastated as I wrote an email to the program director saying that I wanted nothing more than to participate but I did not have the monetary means to finance my voyage.
After that first contact and our back and forth communictions some progress was made. Unfortunatly at the same time due to the fact that I was dealing with my physical therapy I wasn 't able to make the deadlines for enrollment. I was also job hunting again, taking care of my Mother after she broke her foot and my Grandfather passing away my further education was put on hold. Then I received the email regarding the scholarship give away which I decided to take advantage of. When you followed up with me on my entry taking the time to continuing your sharing of information about Colorado Chirstian University I know it was time to invest in my future education.
I asked my Grandmother, when you finally went for your scan and the results came out positive what was your first reaction? She answered in tears and said i immediately fell to the ground in shock, “I suffered through the treatment and ended up in breast conserving surgery were i got my left side breast removed, over a 2 months of healing after being in hospital for 1 week after my surgery, after a couple of months after my surgery i went for my weekly check up and the Doctor then informed me that i had to get a mastectomy done on my right breast because the cancer cells had spread too and also a bit just by armpit , i am now 77 and finally recovered from the removal of both my breast and now i am proud to say i am Cancer free but in saying that i will never again hesitate getting a check up to insure I’m well. Because my grandmother was a victim to this disease me and my 5 sisters have a great chance of also getting breast cancer. My grandmother asked me to research some of the symptoms that could possible indicate that i may have breast
Module 1 Discussion Nursing was my second professional career choice. Originally, I was going to school for business, but marriage and kids prevent me from finishing my education. Shortly afterwards, I started working in sales, eventually owned a few business along the way, due to the economy I returned to the work force. Although interested in returning to college, I was unsure which field to pursue. It was during a time my mother was in the hospital gravely ill, that made me realized what I wanted do.
