I am not just interested in becoming a Physician Assistant; I dream of, and am driven to become one. I have been fascinated by the medical field as long as I can remember. I had the opportunity to begin scribing for a physician and absolutely loved the patient interaction, the variety of duties that had to be accomplished and the fact that for some people a fifteen to twenty minute appointment may seem insignificant in the grand scheme of a day or life, but to those who were being seen, their lives are instantly changed for the better. I learned such a vast amount of knowledge every single day I worked there. I grew to love the medical field more and more and am confident I was meant to work my hardest to be able to provide care to patients as my life occupation; specifically rural areas like the one I grew up in.
My decision to transfer is based fully on this programs direct entry nursing program. Being highly ranked and having good job prospects after graduation truly helping their students succeed in the world of the medical field. Bringing my good attitude and hard work ethic will help me succeed at this institution as well as my love for volunteering in the community around me. Medical
The career I picked was Physicians and Surgeons which is another name for Pediatricians. I picked this career because I like helping kids and babies. I like helping babies because I have a lot of nieces and nephews and they make me feel loved. No one and my family have this job so I will be the first to be a Pediatrician. I wanted to be a Pediatrician since I was 6 years old.
I am requesting this scholarship to help pursue my dream to become a registered nurse to be able to help and lead others. I want to be able to help people get well. Also to give premature babies a voice to be heard, and to be healthy to survive. I have always wanted to be a nurse ever since my twin and I were born at twenty-nine weeks in critical condition. We beat the odds and became two healthy baby girls.
Throughout college, I shadowed many physician assistants and physicians and found that physician assistants have the flexibility to rotate across specialties. Since I was young, I always wanted to be a medical doctor. I would listen to my dad speak about his career, and he was always so animated when he spoke about his patients and the relationships he developed over the years. I would want that connection with my patients. However, the medical field is changing drastically, and I do not feel that doctors are able to develop these relationships as liberally.
I am adaptable to any environment and willing to work hard to be an asset to your residency program. I am eager, dedicated and ready to go above and beyond the call of duty in pursuit of excellence. I am a passionate person devoted to helping and caring for others. As a medical student i always looked forward to interacting with patients and learning through hands on experience. During third year of medical school, clinical rotations opened a whole new world to me.
Physician shadowing was the first real experience I had in the medical field outside of personal ailments. Each experience provided me with important insight into the day-to-day activities of both physicians and medical students. It also showed me the responsibility physicians carry. Responsibility is something I have worked on tremendously in response to these observations. I was able to apply it to both my academic and personal life to great benefit.
I have been able to work side-by-side with a Pathologists ' Assistant since day one and because of this, I fully understand their role in the medical society. I owe a lot of what I learned as a grossing technician to them because of their guidance, input, and examples. The more I asked them questions and the more I watched them work, the more captivated I became by their role and realized I wanted to be in their position. As a result, I believe that my close working relationship with the Pathologists ' and Pathologists ' Assistants, as well as the exposure and knowledge I have gained by working in the department will help me succeed, particularly in Loma Linda University 's Pathologists ' Assistant program. Loma Linda University is a good fit for me a few reasons.
I attended nursing school and earned an LPN license, but I was determined to get my BSN. I knew nursing school would not be cheap, so I looked for a job as a patient care tech in a hospital. I knew I wanted to work someday in a hospital. I found a job on a pediatric floor and fell in love with my new job. This floor also has a special hall just for cancer patients.
Until I decided to go to Lenape, I had not had any plans for what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. When I learned I could graduate as a Certified Nurse Assistant, I was interested immediately. However, I knew I wanted to accomplish more than that. I love learning and I have a lot of empathy so I knew healthcare would be a perfect match for me. I chose nursing specifically because I love the idea of taking care of people, and nurses make a huge difference and have such an impact on the patients and their loved ones lives.
P.A vs. Pediatrician Ever since I was a little girl, I have always dreamed about being a doctor. As I got older I learned about the different types of doctors I could be and I came across a pediatrician, a doctor who treats children. I was so content on what I wanted to be until I discovered what a physician assistant does. I was told it is not common to become a PA and then go back to school to be a medical doctor. With that in mind I needed to figure out what I want to do with my career before I enter into the world of college.
This, I’m sure, is the way many young people become interested in physical therapy. It clicked for me because a physical therapist was the first career I could picture myself as, no other career choice I could so easily see myself doing. So, after I had this revelation I started to pursue higher education in the health sciences and tried to become more familiar with the rehab environment. At this point I started to reach out to physical therapists in my area and observe their workday. In my senior year of high school I observed physical therapy in outpatient rehab, geriatric outpatient rehab, and a hospital.
Although, I thoroughly enjoy working for Children’s Homecare especially the families I work for, I cannot advance my career without further education. In the last few years, I have found it difficult to work more hours, take care of my family and go to school. My husband works hard to provide for our family, nonetheless, in today’s world you need both parents working to financially make ends meet. I am scheduled to graduate May of 2018 from Stark State College with an associate’s degree in nursing. I plan to continue my education and work on my bachelor degree in nursing, while working as an RN.
