I am very interested in the position as a Registered Nurse for the Medical Oncology Infusion clinic available on the Memorial Hospital of Gulfport website. As a dedicated Registered Nurse with a 30-year span of experience, I believe I would be an asset for this position and the clinic team. My work experience includes Medical/Surgical nursing at acute care setting, a busy Ambulatory Clinic for three surgeons for two years, 10 years at Outpatient Surgery Center, three years as a Community Outreach Cancer nurse and much more. My skill sets are the strong ability to assess patients using the nursing process and principles, knowledge of the many procedures and protocols, proficient with using clinic equipment, multitasking to meet patients and family needs, to think critically during procedures and in emergencies, and interpreting and following instructions from the physicians. As the Community Outreach Cancer nurse, I have knowledge and understanding for the need of quality patient education, my position required that I take over the teaching of patients and families about Chemotherapy treatments when a Chemotherapy nurse was not available.
Most patients do not know what advance directs are, so we should clarify the information and make sure they are satisficed with their decisions.

As the nurse you should explain what the purpose of ambulation is to the patient. You should always teach and educate the patient about their well being.
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.
