Being a Cook Children’s nurse resident has been a dream of mine since I started nursing school. I feel that the nurse residency at Cook Children’s will aid in transitioning me from being a novice nurse to becoming a more confident and competent nurse. I wish to be a Cook Children/’s nurse resident because I want to take part in the preparation that is received to facilitate the shift that is needed to provide excellence in quality and safety in extraordinary care.
The career that fascinates me and what I plan to be when Im older, is a Dental Hygienist. A dental hygienist is a stressful job, but it helps a lot of people. You are helping people get better teeth and even look better, because when people have straight pretty teeth, they seem to have an upgrade in their looks. I haven’t always wanted to be a dental hygienist, I had many other career choices. But, something about making people smile when I’m the reason they look good doing it makes me happy.
Secondly, you have graduated and are now in the very start of your Surgical Technology career. This is the first step in being great at your job, this also comes with good and bad days. The good is the days where you have people who care helping you because yes you just went through clinic but you still don 't know it all. These are also the days that you have a surgeon that understands that your new and don 't know the way he or she works yet. Now I said there would be some bad days. These are the days where you might have to work with some not so nice people. Also you may have a surgeon who is having a bad day and your the nearest person to take it out on. Now I know your thinking why in the world would I want to put up with this stuff? But trust be it gets better, in the beginning nobody is going to trust you becasue they have been doing this a long time and you just walked across the stage last month. You must always remember that you will be in there place one day training people just like you. Even though you are just starting out make sure you jump at any oppertunity to help or take an extra shift. Why do this because you will gain to much just from picking up extra things you never know what can happen from one case to
I am an experienced hardworking, reliable and motivated Senior Nurse. I lead by example and thrive on challenges.
Surgical Tech: As a seasoned surgical technician, I provided training to 7 enlisted personnel on all aspects of the department. I work hand on hand with the general surgeon, nurses, and technicians to ensure quality of care is present at all times. I have scrubbed and circulated over 46 demanding surgical cases with zero discrepancies and zero post-operative infections, resulting in 100% customer satisfaction and promoting mission readiness.
Becoming a surgical tech requires more than just knowledge. One does not simply expect the journey to be smooth-sailing. However, the reward at the end of the line is undeniably worth the work
This week I had the opportunity to spend some time in both the OR and Endoscopy unit. Going into the practice days I was excited and optimistic about what I was going to take away from the experience, as I considered my possible future in working in the operative setting. However, by the second day of practice, I realized that I wasn’t overly excited about either of the units and that the expectations I had set out, didn’t quite match up like I had hoped. Even though I don’t feel as though nursing in either of the units is for me, I was able to take away new knowledge that I believe has enhanced my overall nursing practice.
The career choice that I have chosen is to become an athletic trainer. I love to play sports and be around sports, so I think that being an athletic trainer would be a good career for me. I like to help people and make an impact in other peoples life and becoming an athletic trainer would allow me to help people recover, start to feel better, and get back to what they have to do. There isn’t much better than doing a career that you enjoy and like to do plus making pretty good money doing it. I just feel that becoming an athletic trainer and doing it as a career would be the best fit for me.
NA: I studies at “Technical Institute San Ignacio” for 3 years and from the first year we practice under the supervision of an NP in different hospitals.

My placement was at Toronto Rehab at the Lyndhurst location. I was placed in a seating clinic to work with neurological clients who either have a spinal cord injury, spina bifida, polio or general decline in function regarding their posture. I was assigned to work with Andree Gauthier; she has twelve years of experience when it comes to wheelchair seating and positioning. My placement started from March 6 to April 7 and my work hours are 8:30am to 4:30pm. From my previous intermediate placement, I had the opportunity to do an inventory of all mobility aides residents use at the LTC home. I was able to utilize my previous knowledge and applied my skills in the seating clinic. At the seating clinic, they provide wheelchair seating assessments for custom made backrest and cushion for the clients. Clients may also require specialized drive controls or have chronic postural and skin issues where past interventions have been unsuccessful. I had the opportunity to experience many learning opportunities at the seating clinic that will help me in my future practice as a health care professional.
However, I want to do more I want to be able to follow the process from beginning to end and do the evaluations. I want to be able to do the testing and the measuring. I have set out on this journey of health care because I want to help people go from post-operative to back to fully functioning with realistic goals in place. I want to be able to walk the journey with the patients and let them know that they are not on it alone. Through Physical Therapy I feel that patients get more than just rehabilitation of an injury or surgery but they get a change in mindset from injured to functioning independently again as they did before. I want to be a bigger part of that
The place I decided to carry out my job shadowing experience is at Select Physical Therapy. During my time there, I decided to shadow an Occupational therapist who specialized in hand therapy. I wanted to shadow an Occupational Therapist because at the time, I was interested in becoming an Occupational Therapist and I wanted to see if this is really the career path I wanted to take.
