I used touch and restatement/paraphrasing properly; I believe I could have used silence to give her time to say anything else that was bothering her and could have incorporated more minimal cues to encourage the client to continue to speak. I accidently gave the client false reassurance, which should be avoided in future interactions. In addition, I gave some nonverbal facial expressions that were opposite of therapeutic. This interaction made me appreciate the value of therapeutic communication. I would like to continue to practice and challenge myself to implement appropriate communication strategies as often as
I myself haven 't done too much research on my family but I have done enough to know why my family so close, and to why my parents are so strict about certain things or situations about life. I will like to know more about my family, I also will want a therapist or a counselor to come in and have a session with my family to determine or observe my family on how we function. Traditional outcome research is the focus on demonstrating the efficacy of family therapy and seeks empirical validation fro various treatment approach ( cited pg 340). The more I am researching about my own family I feel as though may understand other families. Family therapy is helpful to families that have trouble, problems, or issues within the system, which helps with families members improve communication and resolved conflicts.
In my previous job, I used to have a charge nurse, who was a good person in the beginning. Later, she has become selfish and started to demonstrate favoritism. I was a new hire there and had many bad experiences with her. Whenever there was a difficult patient in the unit, like a heavy patient, too needy or complaining, she used to assign that patient to me. Usually, the practice in our unit was to rotate the assignment, so that the same staff need not get stuck with such patient assignments.
In relation to caring for this patient I displayed strengths in implementing appropriate nursing actions, adapting to change and communicating effectively with the patient to provide patient centered care; however, I discovered weakness such as, a lack of confidence and patient teachings. I believe that the nursing actions I created for my patient this week were well thought out and my ability to adapt to my patient’s changes and mood to implement my actions greatly improved my patient’s overall health. Comparatively, this patient was my first patient I administered medications to and it was evident that I was nervous when explaining the medication’s purpose and actions. However, since then, with practice and my cheat sheet I feel more confident
Margaret was 97 at the time, legally blind due to macular degeneration, and widowed but very inviting. That Sunday afternoon, I learned what I would do for Margaret each week. Before Margaret was legally blind, she was an avid reader. She volunteered in our local library organizing books and serving others in our small town. This time it would be my chance to return the favor.
This letter formally serves as a request for aid in correcting an unknown issue with Joanie Steddum and with a possible violation of the Starbuck Bussiness Ethics and Compliance handbook from partners Joanie Steddum and Michael Spencer. Joanie 's constant use of an escalated toned, rude, offensive and aggressively mannered and Her preferred method of communicating with me has progressed to a manner in which I feel She is keeping me from exceeding the Legendary customer service standard expected of me. The Authoritative stance and demanding dialog, which also comes from Joanie, seems to be endured by others but I still have not yet seen her treat another partner so unwelcoming, rude, and as offensively and frequently as she has in the past with myself. My Co-worker use of offensive
When Sarah lost her dreams of being a lawyer as well as her later desires to become a wife, she felt that the only power she held was with prayer (Kidd). We are all more like this than we care to realize. Even though we may realize there is something wrong with the world, we stand back and hope for the best. We do this by prayer, or by social media’s ‘like if you wish for world peace,’ or by simply complaining to our peers about the tragedies in our time. These are not bad things to do, but they become decidedly unhelpful when we choose to not take further action.
She ended up taking a job at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston, Maine. She was a registered nurse now and she was working at a hospital, how exciting? After a couple of months working as a nurse, she decided that she may want to further her education. She waited six years before going back to school to become a nurse practitioner. This time, she decided to do online schooling and she worked very hard, staying up late and studying.
During my senior year of high school I got an opportunity to shadow an intensive care unit (ICU) nurse at Adena hospital in Chillicothe, Ohio. Darcee Pierce is the name of the nurse I shadowed. At that point in time I didn’t know which career I wished to pursue. However, within minutes of shadowing Darcee, I knew this was the profession meant for me. I saw patients in critical condition, which was sad, but the care and compassion
My interest in the nursing profession was not made conscious until I realized that inherently, I am a caregiver. Taking care of someone feels as if it is second nature to me. Being so, I found a passion for assisting others in a professional environment. I became interested in nursing because as a nurse, I will be able to holistically care for patients and their families at their most vulnerable moments and ensure the highest quality of care because I will be the one delivering it. My insight on nursing school is as if it is a journey.
Taylor finished, looking concerned. I didn 't feel like answering, so my mom, once again helped me and knew how to handle the situation by answering the questions by saying, "We will tell you later." When the doctor walks in, I am nervous I am going to have to get a shot. Which I found out was a very silly thing to consider. "Hello My name is doctor S," the woman stated, looking at my mom.
I have had the privilege to interview The Senior Chief Nurse Administrator/Health Research Analyst of the James A. Haley VA Medical Center. Dr. Jola Massengale Worked as a Registered Nurse for over twenty years, and in 2011 she earned her doctorate in Nursing Health Administration. Short after her graduation, she was promoted to Chief of Nursing Research, and two years later, she became the Senior Chief Nurse Administrator/Health Research Analyst. She was chosen for this interview because, in 2016, she was one of the key leaders to revamp the way the organization conducted their Las strategic planning process. Although the meeting was scheduled for one hour, it only lasted thirty minutes since Dr. Massengale was called away by the Hospital
In my opinion, my field placements provided me with some clinical practice training, but not compared to other placements. I believe my relationship with the agencies I have worked with has remained positive, and I believe my relationship with my practicum instructors has been satisfactory. Overall, I rate my practicum experience as exceeding my expectations. When entering my field work placement this year, I was hoping to receive the experience of working in an inpatient setting that would prepare me for my future as a social worker. I was expecting to learn more about the resources available in the Sacramento area in order to provide them to my clients in the
Being a nurse is not just about the paycheck at the end of the week, it’s not just about doing your shift because you have to. It is so much more than that, it’s about commitment, and passion for helping others, going above and beyond for each and every patient. I believe there is so much more I need to learn; I will never know everything but the more knowledgeable I am the more equipped I am to be the best nurse a patient deserves. For
