This week was a very good presentation. It was very relatable and helped me get a better picture of what applying to coop will be like. It was cool to hear David`s perspective because he is a nursing major. Before going to this lecture I had wished that I had been spring/summer coop. However, David brought up a good point saying that most colleges will be office for summer break looking for interships at that time.
My “aha” moment was also when we started the research paper. I feel like the assignment made us as nurse to fine tune our critical thinking skills and expand our thoughts. This is exactly the kind of assignments we need to help us grow from RN’s to BSN’s. It was also difficult for me at first also, but once I started it flowed well. The important concept is what we are going to bring to our careers in the future.
On this day October 24th, 2016 many events happened at Jessie Trice Community Health Center (JTCHC). As usual, I was exactly on time to start my clinical rotation at 8 am. My rounds were made in the clinic looking for something out of place and improvise with my assistance. A morning huddle was hold at the nursing station. Everyone met to listen to the points Joel Polanco, RN would present.
A nurse is not about the pills or the charting. It’s about being able to love people when they are at their weakest moments. I would like to take a second and thank our wonderful instructors, especially Mrs. Davis, Mrs. Gregg, Mrs. Allen and Mrs. Jones. For always being there with your kind and encouraging words and giving us the tools necessary to become the great nurse you all knew we could be. We also want to thank you for dealing with us when we were also eagerly waiting for our exam grades.
This week I had the opportunity to spend some time in both the OR and Endoscopy unit. Going into the practice days I was excited and optimistic about what I was going to take away from the experience, as I considered my possible future in working in the operative setting. However, by the second day of practice, I realized that I wasn’t overly excited about either of the units and that the expectations I had set out, didn’t quite match up like I had hoped. Even though I don’t feel as though nursing in either of the units is for me, I was able to take away new knowledge that I believe has enhanced my overall nursing practice.
I honestly did not know what to expect, I heard it would be the hardest thing I have ever done and I definitely believe that to be true. I have definitely felt defeated on multiple occasions and for the first time in my life actually cried about school. I am so thankful to have such great professors to encourage me when I did not do well on exams, give me feedback on study habits, and truly care about my future at Denver School of Nursing and as a nurse. My classmates for the most part are exceptional. They have been so positive, helpful, and I feel like we all learn from each other.
The first day I stepped onto the floor, I felt overwhelmed and I questioned myself if I was meant for this line of work. I was assigned 14 patients. Soon after interacting with all my patients, my perspective and doubts changed. After leaving for college; I started my college days as a full time pre-nursing student. I continued to work as a CNA and
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

This experience was very familiar to me because I have been in the academic scene for many years now. Knowing that I am a very visual and auditory learner I tend to do well in the classroom setting. Some students I could tell also do well in the classroom setting while
As I enter my final semester of nursing, I look forward to new nursing opportunities and to apply my nursing philosophy with each new experience. My goal as a nurse is to grow and learn each day, knowing that each day will provide me with new knowledge making me a better nurse than the day before, and becoming a better nurse the following day than the previous day. Nursing is an exciting, fulfilling, and respected profession which I am very fortunate to be a part of and look forward to the journey
Today, I am glad I choose nursing because I have overcome my social fears, learn to be a team player, learn how to prioritize and most importantly learned to manage stress. Lastly, I grew as a nurse with each semester because I learned how to respect and treat each patient as a unique individual. I have also learned to put my patient safety as my priority and provide presence because I realized through my clinical experience that, sometimes that all the patients need. Below is the breakdown of how I have developed each semester in nursing school. FALL 2013 • Foundations of Nursing: NUR 2310
