Nursing has always been my passion ever since I was young. I have started my nursing career by gaining knowledge and ideas through personal and social experience. I must be determined, dedicated, and motivated throughout this journey. These qualities allow me to be a successful individual. I look forward to gaining the knowledge required to be a licensed nurse practitioner.
For over fifteen years I have enjoyed being an LPN. Working in nursing homes taught me to how to patience and how to use my knowledge to help my patients to the best of my ability. My time as an alcohol and drug rehabilitation nurse helped me to appreciate the courage it takes to admit to a problem, ask for help and the strength it takes to work to get better. Working in a hospital taught me to how to work in a fast paced setting while keeping my sanity intact.
My future plans include going off to Utica College for nursing. I have known my major since I was five years old and my education that has been provided has only encouraged my decision. Even though I am going off into the medical field, my time spent playing sports, being in the drama club, national honors society, and participating in community has actually influenced my decision to do so. The mission statement to be educationally affective and academically effective has been shown through and through here at Little
Overcoming obstacles and improving myself through clinical experience, I learned of other essential qualities needed for success in the field. My greatest time of growth was during my junior residency in internal medicine. Working closely with physicians and developing a rapport with patients, I greatly enjoyed experiencing several areas of the field, from outpatient medicine to ICU to CCU. While the days were long and demanding, I left each night knowing that I had helped relieve my patients’ illness. That’s the reason I am only applying to Internal Medicine as my career; I am the type of person who has always had an acute awareness of other people’s suffering, which has led me to be an empathetic and caring physician.
I would be a great asset to the nursing team. I have several years of experience working in the healthcare field. I am an excellent communicator and team player. I bring additional advantages to your organization such as, currently licensed practical nurse and an employee at the St. Cloud Hospital. Being an organized self- starter and multitasker assists me to manage my time effectively.
Having worked in the Emergency Room for several years and now on 4C Surgical Unit, I have gained first hand experience in providing care to very sick patients and having critical care experience. I was nominated for a DAISY Award by the Vice President of Nursing for the Emergency Room. I would like to be a council member for the quality and safety council. I believe an integral aspect of providing quality care at the bedside, is being knowledgeable on information that can promote excellent patient care. I am empowered to help make a positive impact, working with my fellow colleagues to implement great improvements to patient care.
Ever since I was about 8 or 9 years old I always knew I wanted to be something in the healthcare field. I knew that I was interested and fascinated by the human body and wanted to learn more. I was always exposed to the healthcare field because my grandmother was CNA and my great grandmother was a registered nurse. So growing up around them I learned a lot of medical things.
I am devoted to lifelong learning and plan to obtain my doctorate of nursing practice. I have known many fantastic nurse practitioners, physicians, physician assistants, and educators throughout the years. I have known many RN’s that have gone on to practice in each of those professions. I choose to become a nurse practitioner because I believe in the nursing philosophy of healing the whole person. I believe providers need to be more mindful of the benefits of holistic, preventative care.
I also learned professionalism is play an important role in student life as well as in my future practice. Recently, we had obtained our professional photos; this event reminded me one of the six tenets is “ Professional presence”, which plays an important role in pharmacy. The next core is education, besides our main courses, we also leaned and obtained the CPR certification, APhA Pharmacy-Based Immunization Delivery, and volunteer to save a
Up until my junior year of high school, I didn’t know what type of surgeon I wanted to be. I was assigned a junior project, where I researched schools, and most importantly my career plans. That’s when I decided that a reconstructive plastic surgeon is what I wanted to become. I am a perfectionist and I like to take my time so that I can take pride in my work.
I plan on obtaining my masters in nursing and becoming a neonatal nurse. Without taking science courses at River Valley, becoming a nurse would have never crossed my mind. As a sophomore I took biology where I learned about topics such as genetics and how different genes can affect an offspring. In chemistry I became fascinated with the idea of mixing different elements and chemicals to make something brand new and in anatomy I was taught about the skeletal, muscle and nervous systems which we were able to better see through
I definitely believe that I fit into Cor Jesu’s chapter of NHS. I have participated in many service opportunities and leadership positions, and while those both demonstrate what my participation in NHS would be if I am accepted, but I am also honest, responsible, kind, respectful, and helpful. The main reason I am applying for NHS is so that I can help others by serving my community, and I can achieve this by using my gifts and character. One of my most inspiring service opportunities that I have participated in was at Cardinal Ritter Senior Services during my freshman year.
Everyone discusses the cliché that “college is the best four or five years of your life.” I do not believe this. I feel as though finding a career I love and building a family will be the greatest part of my life; therefore, I want to start my life as soon as I can without as little debt as possible. This program allows me
I am passionate about the medical industry and I aspire to major in chemistry and then attend medical school, aspiring to become an anesthesiologist. However, my strong motivation to become successful in the medical industry stems from a negative experience. It was likely the greatest challenge I had ever faced in my life. Just last year, my grandmother began to suffer the ill effects of complications due to her diabetes. It was a traumatizing experience for her, as well as for my family.
My purpose statement is to become a health care manager at a private hospital or clinic and be able to plan and direct the health services there, as well as to be able to assist my coworkers whenever they need help with their questions and concerns about their job. My personal goal is to be able to communicate better with people. My academic goal is to get my bachelor’s degree in health service administration at the University of Central Florida. Lastly, my career goal is to become a health service manager in Orlando, Florida at a private clinic or hospital. My long term personal goal is to be able to communicate better with people within one year.
