Her communication skills helped empower me with confidence needed to execute my task. If she not for her walking me calmly through that procedure I would have missed out on my education. I was lucky enough to do that task two more times and felt comfortable while executing that task. Conclusion
The parents should have known that Sarah does need care being that she has not seen or diagnosed by a doctor. The only way that she can be properly be helped is if she is properly diagnosed. The family could also learn about different skills about her condition, which could enable them to be better caretakers. I would help this family by allowing Sarah to stay at her home but recommend that she see a doctor immediately. I will also provide them with documentation that explains more information about her condition and effective ways of treatment.
As a leader within my fraternity, I've performed and practiced therapeutic communication without even being aware of it. This week I was able to active listen to patients, such as a patient who explained his glaucoma to us and how it was partially fixed, but a complication arose that needs to be assessed and stabilized. I also was able to sit down and talk with a patient before her bath to see what she wanted to wear. Asking open ended questions, active listening, being silent to give her time to respond, etc. enforced my therapeutic communication within the healthcare setting. A non-therapeutic bias I've come to realize is that instead of talking to the patient, I communicated to the nurse instead.
After receiving the first project back, I was surprised to receive such a low grade, being that our group put a lot of effort into it. Once we understood what we did wrong, my technical communication started
Focus 2 Assignment – Reflection Upon completing the Focus 2 career assessment program, I am quite impressed at the quality of information it presents. It allowed me to not only look at careers that would fit my personality, but also those that take into consideration the fields I am already interested in. Also, as with any form of self-assessment, there were strengths and weaknesses that I did not expect based on how I feel I live my life currently. Beginning chronologically, the program had me complete two subjective, current measures of my professional career.
For my professional interview, I scheduled an appointment to meet with Warren Windsor at the University of West Georgia’s counseling center. I was nervous to talk to someone who has experience as a counselor but I was excited to get to see what someone who is already established in their career would have to say about the work they have chosen. I went into the interview without knowing anything about my interviewee and I assumed I was going to be talking with someone who was working at the counseling center as an intern in the counseling program. I was very surprised by the counselor I met and the story he shared with me.
Unsure if I was correct, I asked my instructor to ensure that I was performing the skill correct. This began to make me more aware of the differences in how some nurses perform skills. I also
I learned the different roles of what a nurse needs to be to ensure efficient patient-care outcome and how leaders, followers and managers are all important in being a part of role development. The one experience that caused me to be a leader was here recently with my epidemiology presentation project in Community Health class. I was the one who initiated the group text, which was never used; I also was the one who created the power point for the presentation and sent out the first email asking for advice for the information that we started retrieving from our first meeting and asking any opinions on the power point itself. After four emails of no responses and several classes in which no one exerted any attempts to meet and talk about the project, I started forwarding my issue with the teacher, which she never inputted any advice after asking her for help.
I took a nursing assistant class through a dual enrollment program. I performed clinical hours at Golden Living Center in Rome, Georgia for CNA training. I took this class not because I wanted to become a nurse but because this was the only healthcare class left that I had not taken. I did not want to go senior year without taking a class in healthcare because I did not want to forget important skills that I had learned in prior classes. This class taught me a lot about the medical field.

When completing the Enneagram Personality inventory, I found my dominant personalities were the perfectionist and the peacemaker. Each of these personalities aided in my decisions when working with Mr. and Mrs. Wilson and the rest of the collaboration team. My first trait, the perfectionist, helped me to be very productive and orderly when putting together an agenda for the collaboration meeting. In order for the meeting to go smoothly, it was very important for me to have a detailed agenda in which I knew I could cover all the information that the Wilson’s needed to hear and also give everyone a chance to voice their comments and concerns during the meeting as well.
The entire assignment was basically creating a presentation on a genre we found on our own to show our understanding of the concept. At the beginning of this class I thought that all of the writing assignments were going to be extremely hard, but after this assignment I realized that these assignments really aren’t going to be too difficult. I think this is due to the Writing as a Process SLO and that fact that it really helps break things into easy understandable parts that flow into one another. I’m glad this was the first assignment because it helped me get a good foothold of what this class is going to be without being too
I was a bit brought down because I didn’t get my interview. Fortunately I was still able to do a survey and get the perfect amount of results. I feel like my paper is very powerful. I tried to improve my word choice and language so that I wouldn’t get a lower grade like we discussed. Also in general I am just really exited for this topic.
