I write on behalf of Joshua Whiting’s application for a Resident Assistant position. I believe Josh to be an exemplary student-scholar as well as a person of tremendous character with significant leadership skills.
My interest in pathology dates back to high school. I enjoyed most sciences but especially sciences about the body. I knew then that I wanted to work in the field of pathology. I took all the sciences I could, eventually majoring in Biochemistry in college to understand the workings of the body.
Please describe any personal characteristics which you possess that make you qualified to be a Resident Assistant. What skills do you possess and what experiences have you had that might enhance your candidacy for the Resident Assistant position?
I care about providing the best holistic healthcare I possibly can for my patients through evidence-based practice. I respect individuals’ race, socioeconomic class, gender, and sexual orientation. I work well with others and I strive to help create a good working environment where people can communicate, ask questions, learn new information, and feel respected. With this New Graduate Nurse Residency Program, I hope to be exposed to many different clinical situations. I hope to further develop my clinical leadership skills and to gain new knowledge. The two areas I am the most interested in are medical-surgical nursing and emergency

I want to be a physician because I want people to grow old. At the age of 6, one of my closest friends was diagnosed with leukemia. By age 8, the disease claimed his life, robbing him of the opportunity to experience the privilege of growing old. Unfortunately, we live in a society of vanity. We see the process of aging and choose not to embrace it. As a physician, I would work with my patients so that they do not fear age, but rather welcome it. I want to effectively educate my patients so they may willingly choose to lead healthy lives and ultimately extend their days left in this world with their loved ones. I hope that as a caregiver, I am able to help my patients realize that a long, healthy life is far more fulfilling than a short, glamorous one.
I want to be an RA so that I can become more involved in the Geneseo community in a positive way, by helping and representing other students. In particular, I would love to be a resource for incoming students to Geneseo who are nervous and unsure about how they'll find their place here, like I was when I was a freshman. I also think being an RA is a great chance to develop leadership, conflict mediation, and public speaking skills, which are important to have now and in the future. Most of all, I'd like to be able to connect with students I otherwise might normally interact and
I am a firm believer in academia being the top priority while in college and I have proven this attitude through my performance over the past semester. As a Political Science and International Business double major at Monmouth College, who is on the Pre-Law track, I aspire to work in politics one day as a Political Campaign Manager. My academic attitude, I believe, is important for a Resident Assistant to hold because as a RA, one should be a role model for the other members of the hall. While I do take my academics seriously, I also understand the value of communication and social stability while in college. I am very capable of delivering emotional support to any future residents that I may have. Due to my position on the Monmouth College Forensics Team, I, in no way would consider myself shy and have a very warm and outgoing personality that I feel would be able to help residents feel at ease.
I have chosen to get my Bachelor’s degree in Healthcare Administration at Kaplan University, because of the high demand in the healthcare profession. As a Healthcare Administrator, I am required to have strong communication skills and leadership ability. Being an administrator I must be able to make decisions and delegate authority, while managing all levels of medical and administrative personnel. Our job is to manage, direct and coordinate medical services in a variety of settings. It is our responsibility to know the skills and knowledge of medical services, as well as the laws that govern the industry. Being a Health Administrator over a facility means being in charge of so many people including workers and patients. We are to protect our workers and patients when it comes to patient rights and confidently.
A dental assistant is a person who does what their job description implies. They “assist” the dentist in many procedures. Their duties are to take radiographs, assist in restorations, as well as dental extractions. These are just a few of the many responsibilities that a dental assistant entails. An assistant must be fully educated in all procedures that a dentist performs in order to efficiently assist.
It took me a while to find nurses that wanted to participate in my interview. I was able to interview 2 nurses at a medical center because this week at my private practice, with the help of an Ecuadorian Audiologist who has ABR/ASSR system, we had a Microtia week from all over Bolivia and one of the mother’s was a nurse assistant, she made the contact with her boss and I was able to interview both, yesterday. (NP: nurse practitioner and NA: auxiliary nurse- MARIA)
Describe a challenging, diversity-related situation that you have faced, and likely will continue to face in your nursing career.
I want to be a RA next year again to keep improving the lives of students on campus through building community, planning programs, and being available to residents. First I want to build community by making everyone in my house feel welcome and appreciated. Welcoming starts on move in day and continues throughout the year with conversations and having an open. Next I enjoy planning programs. At programs I find out more about residents interest, goals, and stories. Programs allow for important educational aspects to be shared and discussed as house such as current events, health and wellness, and community services. Thirdly I want to be a RA next year to continue to have an open door
The first thing I will like to remember as an RA is Everyone is different. Each person has a different background, personality and choices that I have to respect. I cannot force my beliefs or choices on anyone just because I am an RA
