As I work my way up through the ranks taking on new responsibilities, I will be prepared for the basic needs of an officer. With an officer job, I could respond to more serious and upgraded duties to work successfully and effectively as a team captain. I also feel it is my obligation as an American citizen to pay homage to our veterans and country. It is important to keep the legacy of America alive, and as an officer I can see myself on the forefront. After seeing the multitude of honor veterans receive, my donation to them would be to continue their labor of freedom in the Navy.
Howley: Nurse Leader Interview I took this opportunity to get to know my leader a bit better. Dorothy Smith is new to South Shore Hospital, and I realized I have not had time to sit and talk with her about what she believes, where she came from, and where she hopes to be in the future. She has held her current position as manager in the South Shore Hospital emergency room for eight months. She came to this position from Tufts Medical Center. Dorothy has her MSN/MBA in HCA.
Ida Maud Cannon is a historical figure worth mentioning since she is considered the “medical social work pioneer” (Social Welfare History Project, 2012). This woman has made many contributions in medical social work. Ida was a nurse prior to leaping into the social work field (Social work trailblazer, 1997). She was an inspiring woman who travelled to many different countries to create and teach training programs for students and staff. Ida was one of the few that worked with lower class clients who had “unspeakable diseases” (Kerson, T. S., & McCoyd, J. M., 2013).
Check your skills to help you on your goal to becoming a practitioner in the nursing field. Meanwhile, practical nursing only requires at least one year of education that will earn them a certification. They are required to perform basic nursing care and work under the supervision of a RN. As a nursing assistant, they will have to report all the observations and changes in a patient’s health condition to the nurse or medical professional. The reason why the title is called a practical nursing is because, as you can see, they do most of the practical stuff and
The Army also taught me the value of saving money for the future. Although, those changes were great, the best part of my training was getting to meet new people. Learning how to make friends was the best skill I learned. Compared to my old life, I am now on track to being the best I can ever hope to be. The Army transformed me into the man I am
The path into becoming a registered nurse was a very confusing process for me because there are three entry levels of nursing, the bachelors science nursing (BSN) degree route, the associate degree (AD) route, and the diploma in nursing, which is basically a hospital based nursing school (Black, 2010, p. 60). After observing the available options and doing research of the three different programs I decided to attend an AD program at Keiser University. The reason I went this route was because in two years of nursing education it permitted me start working in the clinical setting as a nurse. On April, 2015 I graduated Keiser University Orlando, and on May 2015 I obtained my RN licensure from the state of
I took a nursing assistant class through a dual enrollment program. I performed clinical hours at Golden Living Center in Rome, Georgia for CNA training. I took this class not because I wanted to become a nurse but because this was the only healthcare class left that I had not taken. I did not want to go senior year without taking a class in healthcare because I did not want to forget important skills that I had learned in prior classes. This class taught me a lot about the medical field.
MacArthur was a very brave and commanding general. His Thayer award speech acceptance passed the torch to the next generation of leaders. Throughout his speech, he uses logos to show what it means to be a military leader. He goes on to say how he will always feel “a sense of pride… which will be with me always: Duty, Honor, Country.” He uses this statement as a logo and achievement for these cadets to look up to. The three words “Duty, Honor, Country” also show logos because they are what every man or woman stands for in the military.
Another thing that I learned from experience in the military and my civilian job is always hold people to increased standards. High standards I learned in both profession is important because you are a role model to someone at all times. Just like in the Marine Corps, I act as a professional in my profession at all times from the time I come in until I leave each day. According to Pelled (2007), “The thought of a missing goodness is a relatively comforting one that can give rise to mental development by learning from experience” (p. 1510). To be honest, I would not have made any different decisions with the knowledge I now
The main library at the largest military base in the Pacific Northwest was also built, dedicated, and named in his honor and memory in the early 1970’s. Through my education to overcome my lifelong struggles, I would finally earn my BA in Social Sciences and a dual Masters in Adult & Community Education and Executive Development. When my firstborn child came into the world with a diagnosis of Down syndrome, it was her precious life that helped me discover my voice of advocacy. As I learned to speak on her behalf, I began to give my own experience a voice and I learned I could help to narrow the divide between the Military and the world of the Civilian by educating both civilian and military populations, reclaiming a legacy of which I was robbed, and I saw that, through the
State Veterans homes fill an important need for veterans who wish to spend their last years with other individuals who served in former active duty. Research states that the most preferred service offered is nursing home care. State Veterans homes must be licensed within that state and can perform skilled nursing home services acquired by the state. Every state has the minimum of one home while others may have multiple. Demographics suggest that activities and the social atmosphere of the veteran homes should revolve around the needs of women and men.
I also spoke to my school nurse, a LPN, who recommended that I take the nursing route but to still pursue my M.D. I took her advice and after research I found that a Registered Nurse (R.N.) in New York makes about $63,718 annually- according to Pay scale. In only 4 years of school I would be making about half of a doctor’s salary and doing the exact thing I longed to do for years. After this research I decided to apply to Delaware State University’s nursing program where I am now studying to become a Registered Nurse.
Have a visiting nurse check in once a week to check how she is doing. I would encourage Ms. Washburn to find community legal aid that can offer low or no cost legal advice regarding her pension and survivor benefits through the Army. Suggesting that she volunteers at her local church or agencies that she may enjoy spending time outside of the home. Finally, utilizing available community resources to bring her housing up to
First of all, I had the opportunity to interview Kim Bartells who’s a Licensed Social Worker (LSW) in Michealsen Health Center and learn more about her role as a social work. Before I started interviewing Kim, I asked her if it was alright with her if I recorded the conversation and she said it was fine with it. I started the interview with asking what type of population Michealsen Health Center serves and she told me it was mostly elderly people. Kim works in a “Microlevel intervention involves working with individuals--- separately, in families, or in small groups---to facilitate change in individual behavior or in relationship” (DuBois and Miley 69). This types of individuals she is working with are elderly residents “who utilize long-term care experience a combination of physical or cognitive limitation that require some level of assistance in activities of daily living” (DuBois and Miley 314-315) and their families as well.

Exploring the veterans perks accessible for secondary professional education is an excellent starting point get yourself ready for a new career. The transition from military services to
