Dr. Edward Kammerer, MD is a good family friend. We have been friends for more than 17 years! When he heard I had a goal of job shadowing an internal medicine physician to see if that is the path I want to take, he kindly offered a day when I could follow him around and see what his typical work day is like. I met him at 8:00 a.m. on a Friday. When the day first began he had some paperwork to fill out and catch up on.
I have volunteered at my hometown 's hospital, Los Robles for 4 years now as a floater and ER volunteer.

My feelings about volunteering were neutral. This was something I wanted to experience and was excited about. The licensed social worker that gave me permission to volunteer was Ms. Pearson.

My nursing experience began in July of 2005, when I began working at Kaiser Permanente as a certified medical assistant. As a medical assistant (MA), the MA can do something as minor as checking someone’s weight, to administering immunizations under the supervision of the LVN or the physician. The things I did over the seven years as a MA, was limited and I began feeling complacent and wanted to do more with my career. I continued my education with the assistance of the company I worked for, and received my LVN in 2012. There, I transitioned to a department that is considered a high-risk perinatal unit.
My research project with the Iowa Violent Death Prevention Program and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention exposed me to the causes of violent death in Iowa and I produced a report for the state detailing suicide data and advocating prevention methods. I served as a Student Leader Board Member at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, where I managed hundreds of volunteers in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, tracking their hours and working on projects to benefit the patient and family experience. I was recently chosen to be the Chairperson of the Student Leader Board and will manage over 700 college student volunteers over the coming year. However, I started out as a typical volunteer in the hospital, mostly in the pediatric inpatient units. There, I met a vibrant young patient who taught me a great deal about the power of listening.
I attended two physician appointments on 2/2/18 Neurosurgery and 2/20/2018 Neurology with Mr. Noveloso, his sister and his son Bernard. Parking fees were also paid for each clinic appointment of $2.00 for each appointment. Mr. Noveloso’s sister had come from Germany when the accident occurred and had been assisting them. She had prepared meals and her brother was able to reheat them. I inquired about what she had noticed as she was a nurse.

Informal interviews took place before and after healthcare meetings, and the researcher asked questions about the activities and interactions. Formal interviews with the participants took place 1–14 days after the observations. Three interviews took place in the participant's private home, and 12 took place in a meeting room in the hospital, selected by the participants.
For my Capstone Project, I chose the career as physician assistant. I worked hard throughout the year to make sure I make a good grade on the Capstone Project. I job shadowed at D.D. Eisenhower Army Medical Center in the pain management unit. I spent most of the time observing my mentor while she performed check-ups on her patients. Also, I saw my mentor give injections to patients to help with pain.
The four pillars of the National Honor Society consists of leadership, scholarship, service, and character. These characteristics must be possessed by an individual in order to be a member of the society. I believe that I possess all the these four qualities and should become a member of National Honor Society. Leadership is when someone has a positive influence on people and brings out the best in them. I am a leader of the junior class student body as being a member of student council.
Volunteering at the VA is one of the best choices that I have ever made. I have met so many amazing people and have learned many new things by giving back to our veterans. My transition from just starting to now has been a great one and I am grateful for all the people who helped get me here. Volunteering here has taught me more people skills, how to work together with others, and how good it felt to help others. It has now been over a year since I first became a student volunteer with the VA.
