Why do I want to become a nurse? Nursing, the one job everyone says that is so fulling, and will change your perspective on the world forever. I wanted to be a nurse since the time I was 10 years old, because I saw what they do for others every day. Becoming a nurse was so important to me because, I wanted to do something in my career that is interesting, challenging, and makes a difference in people's lives on a daily basis. The one person who always told me I can do whatever I wanted in life was my mom.
When I came on my tour here everyone was so friendly and it made me feel like my family. My last reason is the opportunity we get to go to Dartmouth for our clinical. One of the best hospitals around and that’s where I get to be taught the majority of what I will use for the rest of my life. I know that my journey here will not be easy but if I work hard enough at Colby Sawyer I know I will do great things for this college and for the world. This place is the perfect stop on my journey in life.
I vigorously educate women and girls in my community about the dangers of FGM. I particularly enjoy women integrating into society. It brings me joy to know that I have made a difference in someone else’s life. I know that there will be challenges ahead, but I have the faith, potential and determination to reach my vision of becoming a nurse. I also believe that nursing is highly competitive, and rewarding at the same time.
Although the reward of being an anesthetist is very fulfilling, the work environment can be stressful. A nurse anesthetist spends most of their day on their feet, and are at high risk of back injuries due to lifting and transporting patients. It is also very stressful because of the critical decisions that are made for the patient. A nurse anesthetist can work full time, on call, nights, weekends, and holidays. To become an anesthetist you need some education.
Patient centeredness is no stranger to nursing discourse, however, adopting this element to care and compassion is challenging in today's healthcare arena, especially when treating massively increased numbers of patients" (Bramley and Matiti, 2014). Being the patient's advocate, participating in their care, encouraging independence, and pushing them to be the best that they can be to return to normal health are all important aspects of compassion. When I was working with my patient I felt since I had a smile on my face, a positive attitude, a calming demeanor, and the drive to help her with her care she accepted my help and wanted to get better and participate in
A child’s dream that someday I will be a nurse and that dream will come into reality when my Aunt offered her support to send me to a nursing school. The opportunity given to me by my aunt cause conflict between me and my father (crisis arise). This is where I experience the identity moratorium. I love my father and disobeying him hurt me as well. But my decision is final, so I shifted to nursing even though I’m incoming 3rd year in my Computer Science course and shifting to nursing means I will be 1st year again.
Why College Education is Important to Me By Kayte Forrester I made it a goal for myself to be the first in my family to attend college. After a really bad day at work as a CNA, I finally just signed up and said I’m going to do better for myself. I want a career that has a steady future, something that is financially secure, but most important having a college degree is going to give me a big leap in self-esteem. Getting a college education is going to open a whole new world of opportunities for me. I’ve worked many jobs, from waitressing, cashier, and now nursing assisting.
I had always dreamed of becoming a teacher since I was a little girl, at this moment my dreams were different. Going through this experience with the knowledge I had previously gained, changed my thoughts about my future career. I was now inspired to be a nurse, a nurse practitioner to be exact. I see how my courage to handle this maturely and confidently helped my father feel comfortable with me assisting him. I had never been placed in this situation of having to actually put forth my skills, but thankfully for this experience, I came to realization of what my future profession was truly supposed to be.
The motivation to pursue a career in nursing has always seemed to be part of who I am, and some of my earliest memories are of my mom and her grandma, both registered nurses, talking about being a nurse and caring for others. Inspiration from my mom and great-grandmother was complimented by one of the biggest inspirations in my life, my cousin Jacob. I was just eight years old, but still vividly remember Jacob being born and visiting him for the first time in the hospital. Jacob was born with Downs Syndrome and had open heart surgery shortly after his birth. As we waited to be able to see Jacob, I was sure I wanted to be one of the people walking around the halls in scrubs responsible for helping care for Jacob and the other children in the
I am the first in my family to go to college and with that being said, I have always felt the pressure to be the best role model and example for my younger sisters. Growing up, my parents have always been really strict on me, more than they have been with my younger sisters. I never really understood why, until now two months after my fathers’ death. My fathers’ dream was always to see his three daughters graduate with a college degree. Both of my parents, especially my father always expressed to me the importance my education, for my future.
The transition is also stressful for the nurse practitioner, thus making the NP feel inadequate, overwhelmed and incompetent. Fortunately, there are steps that can help this transition run smoothly. Incorporating strategies to have a successful transition is not impossible since nursing is one of the largest part of healthcare. Acknowledging the different transition phases, from phase 1 which starts in school and graduate program and phase 4 which ends in graduation to workplace, would make the novice NP be confident. But the phase that stands out the most is phase 2, that includes confusion, emotional stress, and anxiety.
The first thing I needed was to pursue more education. I needed my B.A in Liberal Studies to be able to get my teaching credentials. Sharing my new goals and inspirations with my family was the first step, after sharing with my family my plans of pursuing more education, I immediately received lots of support and enjoyment through them. I had been the only person in a family of two children to graduated from a Community College, but now I was going further in my education, they were definitely proud of me. I was going to be the first to graduate from an University, that 's something my mom as a single mother wished she had accomplished.
I do not want to be so wrapped up around myself that I miss the beauty of the people around me. I do not like to see other people hurt and will give everything I have to make the quality of life better for them. As an aspiring nurse, my short-term goal is to work endlessly towards obtaining my Bachelor’s degree in nursing. Once I receive my bachelor’s I want to work as a pediatric nurse or in labor and delivery. However, after a few years of working and getting experience I want to go back to school and get my masters in nursing.
I care about providing the best holistic healthcare I possibly can for my patients through evidence-based practice. I respect individuals’ race, socioeconomic class, gender, and sexual orientation. I work well with others and I strive to help create a good working environment where people can communicate, ask questions, learn new information, and feel respected. With this New Graduate Nurse Residency Program, I hope to be exposed to many different clinical situations. I hope to further develop my clinical leadership skills and to gain new knowledge.
Similar to many people my age, I was uncertain with what I wanted to do, or study in college. My original plan was to take a gap year between high school, and college where I could work while saving money for school, yet think about a career path. Nevertheless, I had picked up a job earlier than what I had expected, so my decision in turn was reached sooner. Though I generally enjoyed my job, and started to progress within the shop I realized that it was not what I wanted to do long term with my life.
