He supports his argument very well by providing information on the other side of the argument. Once he explains the other views, he then explains their limitations and why his view is more correct. I think by doing this he shows that he has deeply thought about and understands both sides. He shows this strongly when he replies to possible objections. An objection that he replies to is that by treating a patient that wishes not to be treated, is requiring a patient to live a life that she does not want to live.

When most people train for jobs, they just go through the motions, not really paying attention to details. In the medical field, it is extremely important to be passionate about the job you are training for and to make sure you go above and beyond in training, so it will carry over into the workforce. In order to be accepted into an Emergency Medical Services program (EMS), you must be 18 years old (Welcome to Career Cruising 2.0). The programs you can enter consist of either a two year college degree in Emergency Medical Services, or an equivalent two year training program. I am looking into going to Florida State College in Jacksonville, at this college there are no prerequisites for the Emergency Medical Services Degree.
Crumpler became a nurse, a profession that did not require formal education in that time, and cared for patients in Massachusetts for eight years. She was eventually admitted to the New England Female Medical college in 1860, and graduated in 1864. She was the first and only African American to graduate the school due to it closing in 1873. Crumpler practiced medicine in Boston until the end of the Civil War, after which she chose to move to Richmond, Virginia. Virginia was where she believed she would be able to help more people and learn more about the diseases that afflicted women and children.
When I began to prepare and administer medication to my resident, it wasn 't much of a new experience. The one new thing I was taught about was the important six rights of medication administration. I had to research every single medication for the purpose and side effects of the drugs, as well possible nursing assessments that I would have to do before and after giving it to the resident. Making sure that I knew how the drug would affect my resident, as well as know how to administrate it, was extremely
I sense that Caterina has had this problem prior to initiating methotrexate and the fact that her lung function tests have been stable over the last few years indicates a non-progressive disease. I have asked her to check at home whehter she has any old imaging for me to review, but otherwise I have suggested we obtain updated lung function tests and chest imaging in a couple of months once any residual impairment from the recent infection has cleared. I will need to then to have discussion with Russell Buchanan as to whether Caterina should continue with methotrexate or whether we consider an alternative regimen such as micophenolate combined with prednisolone. I will see Caterina again in a couple of
Reflection on Medication Administration Description (Competency 3j) I have looked over my moral development regarding medicine administration and have noticed there is the need for improved and has been agreed with my mentor to write a piece of reflection to identify areas of concern Feelings One of the major concern is the pace of dispensing and the time spent used to open charts and allocate them is one of my weakness. Although I am learner I need to back up the pace of dispensing so that patient doesn 't feel my skills is dull or boring and waste of time. I Had developed that feeling of being extra careful to avoid drug error and that makes me feel slightly nervous more also being under the influence of supervision as well. Evaluation
The second step is getting into the Sonography Program in a local hospital. It is an 18 month program that only accepts 6 students into each class.

Nurse Practitioner Interview I spoke with a friend’s sister, a recent graduate DNP, who works as a women’s health NP at a public health clinic system in Utah. Role The role of the women’s health care nurse practitioner can vary widely depending on the setting. J. Yale sees patients for both annual visits as their main care provider and for gynecological issues (personal communication, September 9, 2016). “Many people don’t realize you can do annual visits,” she said, “for example, I can treat someone for high blood pressure in the clinic, in an office setting.”

In December of 2008, I completed a Certified Nursing Assistant and Patient Care Technician course at Pima Community College in Tucson, AZ. I applied for my CNA License after passing my exam but, was denied at that time. The state board stated that not enough time after absolute discharge had passed for a 2001 felony conviction (I needed to wait 5 years after complete discharge and it had only been 4 years). Even though I did not get my CNA license at the time, I was still given a chance to work at a local hospital as a PCT, because a CNA license was not required for employment and I had already received my Level One Fingerprint Clearance card under the Good Cause Exemption from Arizona Department of Pubic Safety. I have been working at this
