I decided to attend Chamberlain College of Nursing (CCN) because of its excellent structure of Master 's Degree Nursing program. The proof lies in the availability of variety classes which I believe would undoubtedly prepare me for my advanced practice in nursing, for example, the course of Nursing Informatics which I did not find in any other reviewed online curriculum. I feel confident that this program will prepare me for this new professional endeavor at the same time realizing the importance that every nurse with master 's degree education, per the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (2011) must acquire the fundamental principles related to the knowledge and skills. I am very encouraged to see that CCN is reflecting these
The goal of this assignment was to help students provide their own philosophy of nursing. The Bible teaches us to care for one another without distinction. As a soon to be a graduate nurse, my personal philosophy of nursing is to provide safe and effective care to my clients, be their advocate, and help them move to the highest level of wellness. I also have the obligation to put their interest first and promote their autonomy as much as possible. Before nursing school, I wasn 't aware of the scientific basis of nursing practice.
For me, Faith recalls positive memories of "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" when Dr. Mike had to defy societal norms. As Andrea has so immersed herself in this role, I found myself hoping Faith stays around. I know not what next week holds, but Andrea's characterization and inspired recitations of her dialogue as she stands up for what she genuinely wants in life should be enough to cause women everywhere to champion her cause. Quite honestly, Peter is such an untoward character that I wouldn't wish him on my worst enemy. I still say that Hope Valley needs a medical clinic, and I hope that Nurse Faith makes the right decision for her and does not cave into what society demands of her.
Theory Description The nursing theory chosen is that of need theory by Virginia Henderson. Henderson has contributed a lot in nursing throughout her journey as a nurse. She intended to define the unique focus of nursing practice, but at the end, it ends up being one the nursing theories that are being used in every clinical setting. Her contribution has helped shaped the way nurses care for their patients and the components she developed help serves as guidelines which nurses used to care for patients. The Purpose of The Theory The purpose of Henderson’s theory is to give the principles that help construct practice and to generate further nursing knowledge.
Through both learning experiences, the clients were sedated, therefore minimizing the interactions that I was able to have with them. In saying this, the main reason that I went into the nursing profession was because I love working with individuals and their families and improving their day-to-day lives. I found that in both of these areas you don’t necessarily get to do that in the same context as you would on some of the other units. This was a positive and eye opening experience for me, as it reinforced my “why” in coming into the nursing program and also allowed me insight into areas that might be more of interest to
This degree will acclaim myself as a registered nurse, this type of nurses are responsible for caring and educating patients about their current conditions and at best to help them improve by carrying out duties such as to “perform physical exams, provide health promotion, administer medications” (nursingworld.org) and much more. I strongly envision that this career choice fits properly for me. The decision to be someone that cares for people, someone who needs to commit to learn, someone designed to have the hunger to work further only seems justifying for myself. The inspiration to be this someone came from my parents, teachers, friends and especially coaches. My parents who always remind me to be the finest caretaker I can be in this big family, my teachers, specifically one of them is Ms.Kelly,who influences me to always output my best self and reminds me that I can reach heights in life, my loving friend, Austyn Ah Choy, who never fails to note to me that I have the ability to show everyone that I can achieve greatness, and lastly my softball coaches who never give up on me and who help build my engagement towards hard work.
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.
A patient may ask for a prescription which might be way beyond our expertise, I don’t think even PCP would do it. She explained to me how hard it is to find a good job and also it is hard to find a group that would open a position for NPs. I asked “What issues you find as an advanced practice nurse that are interesting” When I asked her what is interesting about your job as NP, she states that she is enjoying teaching patients, seeing a wide range of age and type of patients, the patients care and differential diagnosis and also everyday learning something new. We spoke about the working environment and she was very happy about it and how well and convenient it is. Working hours work load were very manageable for her.
Volunteering is a great way to gain experience and become more aware of the world around you while also giving back to others. You learn how to build up character and it can change how you look at the world. For me volunteering is a another step I can take to become aware of people 's situations and not seem like a naive teenager. Plus it would really help me when I do go into the medical field. Volunteering at the hospital relates to my career goal of becoming a nurse.
Personal Nursing Philosophy During my childhood years, the human body always intrigued me. My mother raised me with stories of how she dreamed of becoming a nurse herself, and soon after I sought out to fulfill her dream as well as my own with my higher-level education and opportunities that she did not herself possess. “So, what are nurses?” Nurses aren’t only trained to care for the sick, they are also educated personal whose objective is to fulfill patient needs by performing ongoing assessments and advocating for their safety. A good nurse delivers care by acknowledging the patients’ emotional, cognitive, social, physical, and spiritual needs. These important aspects of the human body are met by nurses each day using therapeutic skills
Being an LPN was one of the milestones for me to become an RN. As a student right now I will follow the same path as I did as an LPN because it was effective for me, as a result I was able to complete the course and obtain my LPN license . As a parent, a student, I had to take into consideration the well being of my family while I was trying to become a nurse. Since nursing was my career goal, I had found ways to balance family and school. As a student I know the importance of studying and completing school works in a timely manner.
There is a lot of talk about nursing homes not being very good to the patient and there is a lot of elderly financial abuse and physical abuse that goes on sometimes in nursing homes when you become a nurse you have to be good at what you do and if you only there for a paycheck then it 's not the job for you. I am passionate about becoming a registered nurse and I love taking care of people so when I will take the course and I felt like a failure I wanted to give it all up. When I took my certified nursing assistant exam I pass it and I started to apply for jobs and within the next few days I was getting calls I started a new job as a certified nursing assistant and I had to attend a training and I 'm already good at what I do. Being at the hospital and or nursing home is such a good feeling because you are making people around you happy who may not have family that home or pet or people to just talk to. I want to continue my education by going to college and getting my bachelors in nursing and then maybe my masters to become a nurse practitioner and then I can open up my range of help to people.
She suggested it would be a great fit for my professional aspirations. Shadowing her and asking in depth questions to her students in the AGNP program, further affirmed my ability and commitment to compete in the rigorous curriculum. After researching the role of an AGNP and FNP, I learned that now more than ever before, there is a strong reliance on Nurse practitioners for patient care management. For these reasons, I wish to become an Adult Gerontology or Family Nurse Practitioner. I am thankful for my experience as an STNA and Restorative Aide at Darby Glenn in addition to my time at UD.
Memorial Hermann is a leading edge medical institution I want to surround myself in and grow at. This experience will lead me towards the direction of working at a hospital, across the world in less developed countries, or even the army in the future. My goal upon graduating high school is to get the best experience I can that will prepare me for the future of becoming an OBGYN. Volunteering at Memorial Hermann will be an excellent opportunity to see how a typical day in a hospital would be. I 'm eager to learn many things such as patient care and basic procedures from the many wonderful mentors around me.
Serving the underprivileged and underinsured has also always been a particular passion of mine. I feel that the mission, values and visions of the institute that one receives their education from should align closely with their personal beliefs as these are the values that will be taught and form ones character over the duration of the program. Georgetown University’s School of Nursing focuses not only on the individual but also the community as well as being a catalyst for health and social justice as mentioned in the Mission Statement and Vision directly correlate with my personal values and visions. The part that resonates with me the most is the Value of the Common Good which states that there is special emphasis placed on serving the marginalized and underserved. That value is key for me as the want to help the underserved was the primary reason I entered into healthcare.
