So you could come over here to achieve your goal to become a Trauma nurse?” Ginny replied in an exciting tone “of course, do not get me wrong I enjoyed every moment at Riverside but I feel I could become a better nurse at Sentra, besides Sentra is the only level one trauma hospital in the region.” “I completely understand,” Chiquita responds. “Anyways, how long is the typical stay for a patient?” Chiquita asks quietly while observing a very heavily sedated patient who is on life
During My Observation, I had the opportunity to observe Terkisha, a Registered Nurse, who was a kind person who gave me lots of information. Not only about nursing but about the Hospital in general. Before heading to the observation, I had a clear knowledge of what a Nurse does in a hospital setting. During my High school years, I had the opportunity to observe many nurses in different departments. Nursing was never a choice I had thoroughly thought about to become my career in the future.
She told me all about how she absolutely loves her job and how she loves working with all the babies, but she concluded that by saying that it is a tough job to perform because “these babies have just come into this world and it seems unfair that sometimes they are taken out of it so quickly.” (Bryant) She told me how the hospital she works at does not have any services available to its workers regarding counseling and that if they need help dealing with a loss, they are expected to get their help outside of work and not deal with it there. When asked about whether or not hospitals should make it
One example of her daily behavior was being very truthful with her care team right off the bat. Hannah told each of them what she did and did not like, and they all followed through, "From that day on, no more than three or four residents entered Hannah 's room at a time, and everyone who did introduced themselves to her using their real names" (Housden 28). She taught her family, care team, and church community the importance of being fearless in life because of how short life can be. Later in the book Maria touches lightly on her divorce from Claude and in the acknowledgments, and she thanks her second husband. I would like to think because of Hannah she learned to make the most of life and if she was not happy in her relationship, she should make
Doctors can save our life and give us life. Our health is important because it is how we live and stay in the right shape. Doctors keep us safe and healthy because when there is something wrong with our body, they can detect it and prescribe the medication that is needed for us to recover. Years ago, doctors didn’t have the training and test equipment they have today. We should be grateful for all the experienced doctors and medical teams in hospitals.
Virginia Henderson’s theory closely resembles the personal theory I use as my guide when providing patient care. Henderson stated that it is necessary for the nurse to “get inside the skin of each of her patients in order to know what he needs” (Masters, 2017, p. 53). Knowing your patients inside and out is an invaluable tool. When you can truly see your patient, it allows you to provide the best patient care for that person. Patient care is individualized because every person has different
I am little shy person and interacting with someone is always challenging for me. On my first day of volunteer work, I was not sure how I am going to interact with people or to what level I am going to provide assistance to them, but I definitely got comfortable a lot quicker than I thought I would. The Darby Glenn nursing home staff is very friendly and helpful. They were caring each resident with respect, warmth and patience. I believed these qualities must need to work in any field to make successful career.
They help the mothers-to-be to welcome their babies come to the world. When you just get into the hospital, nursing assistants are always the first people take care of you. When someone who has illness, and cannot be cure, nursing assistants are always take good care of them, even just emotion. In the delivery room, nursing assistants are good helpers to help the doctors prepare for delivery the new born baby, welcome the new life coming to the world, and take care of the baby after they born. Sometimes it’s easy to get done, but it’s not always like that easy.
“Thank you for taking care of me at the hospital,” she barely uttered, as tears of liquid silver trickled down her cheeks. I watched from afar, as I realized that even though the nurse may have thought her contribution made no difference to the world, they made all the difference in the woman’s world. Every contribution, from the biggest to the smallest, played a part in changing people's lives. By volunteering at this clinic, I created packages that informed families about the importance of vaccines. I also checked the height and weight of children, which gave the parents, and nurse an indication of the child's growth.
I know from experience that struggling to pay bills is stressful and I don’t want to one of those people who just think about money nonstop and never seem to have enough. I am going to provide for myself, and my future family with ease. I enjoy knowing that I will have a secure future and that the possibilities of advancing in this career are endless. Another perk would be having the ability to improve the face of healthcare and actually making a difference in human lives. Changing people’s outlook on healthcare and improving lives for the better is something worth working
They must also make sure that their patients are healthy and that there are no abnormalities or signs of diseases. The advantage of being a pediatrician is you get to help children and prescribe medicine if needed for them to get better or help mend their injuries. You also get to work in your own private office to help your patients. Pediatricians get to bond with their patients and become long friends. Pediatricians also get to maintain a relatively constant work schedule and will not be called into the office at different times (Kokemuller,
According to Julie the healthcare jobs are there, but without getting your foot in the door it can be difficult to get a job. She recommends starting out small and working your way up the hospital chain. When she was in college she spent her summers working in the emergency room in attempt to get a feel for the hospital environment. She recommends this to me because she got a lot of valuable experience working in the emergency room. She says that working on one floor can result in you seeing a lot of the same things.
Nurses have the ability to turn what can be a frightening experience in a hospital or doctor’s office into a mild or even enjoyable time. More than that, nurses are healers, problem solvers, and compassionate companions. For these reasons and many more, I strive to be a Professional Registered Nurse. When nurses explain why they chose this profession, many respond, “to help people” or “to make a difference.” Although these explanations are selfless and inspiring, my answer is somewhat different. I aim to be a nurse for the lifelong learning experiences that will allow me to grow and develop each day.
The most demanding aspect of this experience for me was to carry the interventions on my own. Although my preceptor was by my side, he wanted to make sure I was capable of doing everything alone. I believed that the preparation I received in this seven semester of nursing school was key for my success in this scenario. At the end of that shift, I received many complements from other nurses, staff, and even the attending doctor. My preceptor was very proud of me, and told me in front of everybody that my intervention with that patient demonstrates that I am ready to be on my
Since Alexis took time out of her busy day to personally acknowledge the well being of a former patient, I was reassured about my interest in the healthcare field. I was given an opportunity to shadow a physical therapist 's daily routine, and tag along during strenuous cases. However, I witnessed how much a health profession can impact the personal lives of a patient in a positive way. To work in an environment that interacts with the community and promotes good health is something I aspire towards. I believe that Butler University will provide the necessary pathways for me to choose which healthcare profession I would like to be a part of.
