Being able to have a chance to watch parental visits, the delivery and postnatal visits, is a great way to put all the steps together. My OB experience has positive and negatives outcomes. The first OB mother I got paired with, did not have any prenatal visits left when I contacted her, but I was able to watch the placement of her cervidil. Her labor went extremely fast, and the nursing staff was unable to call me due to the fasten of her deliver. Then I was going to get place with another nurse’s student, to watch that birth.
However, I feel that in my circumstance, I should be with one preceptor so I can get some insight about myself to see if I am growing as a nursing student. Nonetheless, when I arrived at coastal hospice on Wednesday I met with Merriam and worked with her for a few hours. We went to Lake Side Assisted living to meet with a 98-year-old woman who was recently diagnosed with end stage cardiac atherosclerosis. We were referred by the primary care doctor to admit the patient today. However, it did not go as smooth as one would hope for.
It was my first time administering a medication to the patient. I was very nervous and excited at the same time. I knew all the medication she will get but I did not know the time. Therefore, I look at MAR and figured out the time. After that I went to patient room and introduce myself.
Virginia Henderson said in an interview “Nurses always think about how can they help this person to become independent of the nurse at the earliest possible time which can’t be standardized but individualized. The patient should never feel like they are forced to do something against their will or better judgement. One of the serious flaws in healthcare that the patient involvement is not optimized. When there is no hope of the patient living constructively or they don’t want to live any longer, when death is inevitable it is terribly important for the nurse to make sure that the patient has a good death.” She defined the patient as someone who needs nursing care, but did not limit nursing to illness care. Her theory presented the patient as a sum of parts with biopsychosocial needs and the mind and body are inseparable and interrelated.
I waited for a response but all she did was held her head down in silence. " Oh, that does not matter at the moment we are talking about you and your future" say´s mom. I was so overwhelmed that choosing a career could be this hard I began to call colleges and asking nurses which school will be in there best interest. I received a lot of feedback which took a lot of stress off my back knowing the courses wouldn't be that hard if I take good notes
W. about a make-up test. “What was your excuse for missing yesterday’s test?” she asked me sarcastically. “My father had a surgery,” I replied. “It was very convenient to use your father’s surgery as an excuse to miss the test,” Dr. W. resumed. I made a desperate attempt to explain away: “I really could not think about anything else but my father.” “Nothing personal, sweetheart, but if you wanted to get a good grade in my class, the only thing you should have cared about yesterday was the test.” I listened to her dazedly and tried to remember who she reminded me of.
When I decided to enroll to become a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) last 2009, I know that I would be dealing to different types of people and be part of a team that would be responsible in healing and promoting wellness to our patients. When I acquired my license, I immediately started to look for a job where I can apply the concepts I have learned. I was accepted to various nursing homes and during my stay I got the chance to meet and work with people from other countries with different culture. At first, I was hesitant to converse with them because I might say or do something that is inappropriate to them. For example, I have a workmate who is a Muslim and I am a Christian.
I learned that families are not always going to have the same views and are definitely not always going to agree on social issues. For instance, I brought up planned parenthood in the interview and while me and Lisa love and support planned parenthood my grandma did not know much about it and referred to it as an abortion clinic. I quickly pulled out a powerpoint I made to prevent defunding planned parenthood to show her all the other services planned parenthood offers and how abortions were only the tiniest sliver. I taught her about it and she said she was going to look into it more and learn more about it. Overall this was a great experience and I am blessed to have such strong independent women in my
A brief assessment on the new resident was done upon administering medications. Nurse W then had the next 2 days off. Upon returning to work, the house supervisor asked Nurse W why the admission had not been completed. Nurse W told her that she was told by Nurse A that it was being done by her (the house supervisor) and the DON. The house supervisor stated she only agreed to input the medications.
Some may think nurses are doctors right hand and should do as the doctor says, but in the past few years nursig has taken big monumental steps into becoming its own profession and have its own regulatory body with its own code of ethics. Another reason I chose this topic is because I am currently studying to become a nurse, and the first few courses were just about opening our eyes to the possibilities that nursing has to offer and to enlighten us on what nursing is really about, care for the individual. and i got the sense that the professors had to convince the students who were already in that major that nursing wasn’t as it was. because people still hold a grudge and an unreasonable image of what it used to be. And the evidence is clear in that there is a lack in the nursing profession.
I realized that the previous nurse was not able to see what was happening because she barely assessed the patient during her shift. In addition, she failed to take into consideration the opinion of the caregiver. Once I start practicing, I plan to incorporate best practice guidelines to the care of my patients. Also, this experience gave me the opportunity to practice my skills and to test my ability to think critically in emergency situations. The most demanding aspect of this experience for me was to carry the interventions on my own.
While organizing the health immunization cards, we noticed that the health immunization cards that were in the filing cabinets were mostly students that transitioned to Middle School or have transferred to another schools. It was very disorganized. Nurse Ana was doing her Individualized Education Program that was not done by the other nurse who just walked out and quit her position. It was a very productive day, but there was some unprofessionalism that was going on as well that unfortunately as a student like me should not be hearing. My mom always says, “In in one
I also think this career would be the perfect ﬁt for me because I can care for patients, but because I am not great at socializing I will only be caring for them when they are asleep. I also think being able to watch the surgeries and procedures will be very interesting. The second career I am interested in is PA. PA’s can diagnose and treat illnesses, prescribe medication, and collaborate with other doctors and hospitals.PA’s do almost everything a doctor would do in a doctor’s ofﬁce or clinic, which is why I am interested in it. I have never been very fond of doing surgery or 12 or more years of schooling, but I’ve always wanted to take care of patients like doctors did. PA’s do that very thing, but they can assist in surgeries if they want.
We didn 't get much hand on experience at this clinical, but we did get a lot of information. Wendy went over everything I think you could possibly want to know about pregnancy, the laboring process and what happens afterwards to momma and baby. This was a perfect discussion / education day because we have our first L&D exam coming up the following Friday and I have my L&D simulation lab Monday afternoon. Don 't get me wrong I like my hands-on clinical experience but today 's “lecture” for a lack of better words was so helpful. It has been hard to put the pieces together and see how multidimensional pregnancy and women 's health
