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.
My greatest strength that I will bring to nursing is my ability to easily build relationships. Through volunteering I developed my communication and interaction skills by interacting with patients. I further developed these skills while working as a nursing assistant. I established good relationships with many of my residents and many of my fellow coworkers. My caring nature made it easier to establish a good relationship with people.
My Intent to Be a Nurse Practitioner Coming from a third world country where there aren’t many opportunities for work and funding for education, proceding to nursing school was a grand opportunity. The privilege to attend a government subsidized school where top students in the region compete to get into the program that allowed only 60 students per year was indeed a blessing. As clinical rotations began, what was once considered a mere opportunity evolved into a true passion for caring as I truly love and enjoy nursing and helping people.
For my senior project I job shadowed a registered nurse on the Acute Rehab floor at Mercy General Hospital. My goals for senior project were to learn the basic skills a nurse needs to help a patient and to learn how to interact with different types of personalities. My mentor for my project was Michelle Whitten, she has been a nurse for two and a half years. Michelle has a B.S in nursing and a B.A in human development. She is certified in cardiopulmonary resuscitation CPR, Basic Life Support BLS, Advanced cardiac life support ACLS, Pediatric Advanced Life Support PALS, Cardiac Monitoring, MPR, and Certified Rehabilitation Registered Nurse CRRN.
Registered Nurse Kendra Stine English 11 III Miss Mittelman Mifflin County High School The career I am writing about is a registered nurse. A registered nurse can do many different things in their career field. I chose the career of being a registered nurse because I want to be like my mom. She is my best friend, and she is a great Certified Nurses Aid (CNA).
Until I decided to go to Lenape, I had not had any plans for what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. When I learned I could graduate as a Certified Nurse Assistant, I was interested immediately. However, I knew I wanted to accomplish more than that. I love learning and I have a lot of empathy so I knew healthcare would be a perfect match for me.
I was very clumsy when I was a little kid. I vividly remember falling when running around in our yard. It might sound horrible, but this led me to question how our scars healed and how our bruises go away. I would ask my mother, a nurse, as to why this happens. That was when I was a kid.
According to my preceptor last semester I demonstrates a sound understanding of self-care, self-reflection and work life balance. I also have an “understanding of the components of the nurse patient relationship, by maintaining an open and professional relationship with the patients.” I am also “demonstrated self-direction and initiative” (B. Mahy, personal communication, DATE). Rena Hania, my current preceptor indicates that my strengths include “Maturity, professionalism and desire for autonomy. Asks appropriate questions, and have a gift for connecting with my patients” (R. Hania, personal communication,
Some of the responsibilities that come with becoming a Registered Nurse are monitoring a patient, from diets to their sleep schedule you have to look over them. Registered Nurses are legally allowed to change a patient’s dosage of medication if they feel that it is necessary, they are to assess patients and discuss different types of treatment plans with families which includes length of treatment and different types of options. They are to prepare patients for scans/tests and examinations done by a doctor and keep organized notes about the patient. Registered Nurses usually work in a clinic environment but also some work in a hospital.
Introduction: As a first year student I have very specific goals in mind that I hope to achieve through my work in college. My main hopes for the future are that I pass all of my exams in the coming years, graduate and receive my honours degree in general nursing, become a registered nurse and finally get a job as a nurse. Throughout this essay, I have detailed my strengths and the opportunities that will help me finalise these goals along with my weaknesses and the threats that will hinder my progress. Strengths:
You need to know what’s going to make you succeed or fail at various careers. With an understanding of your strengths and weaknesses, and an awareness of what you truly value, you are in an excellent position to pick a career that you find rewarding. (BSM Consulting, Inc. 1998-2015) Ever since I was a little girl, I always wanted to be one of three things, a veterinarian, nurse, or a teacher. At the young age of fifteen, I started working as a certified nursing assistant in a nursing home and on the side volunteered in an animal hospital and shelter to see if that was what I was called to do.
One of the most impactful opportunities I’ve had was working for my volunteer job with Career Trek. At career trek, I had the opportunity to work with students on discovering different career paths they can take, and learning the steps they would need to take to become involved in the field they want to choose. You get a chance to teach classes as well as help students connect more in depth with the lessons and the activities, and you can create a personal connection which can help the children learn. One of the things I was fortunate enough to do was be a junior instructor for theatre and film, one of our career fields. I had the opportunity to teach the lessons and engage the students in their learning.
Every single person in this world is born with some weaknesses and strengths. Throughout our life we work to develop our weaknesses and continue to make the most of our strengths for a better future. Some people stay in denial and think they are perfect while others act on them, recognize their weaknesses and work on it to fix them. I graduated from nursing school in June 2013 and had several job interviews. I still remember human resource staff asking me about my professional strengths and weaknesses.
After taking a personality quiz, I researched all of my suggested jobs to find what I found most interesting. I came to the conclusion of nursing and it helps to know people who are in that field and talk to them about their experience. I once attended one of my friend’s chemo appointments and found myself talking to one of her nurses. That day I decided that becoming a nurse is my career aspiration. After deciding on a career choice, I performed research on the job and discovered certain requirements, salaries, the types of nurses, etc.
