As discussed on the website of Carrington College, Communication skills, dealing with pressure, and self-confidence is the most important things when it comes to important skills for a health career. Looking for your colleagues and advisors for advice is the best way to help you with your skills, so they can help you strengthen them (Carrington). To be a nurse it is also important to be focused and work well under pressure. I consider myself to be very well at these skills. In the article “Skills for Nursing Practice” The authors note that Nursing takes skills such as leadership, communication, teamwork, and compassion.
A medical assistant is an allied health personnel who supports the work of physicians and other health professionals, usually in a clinic or a hospital. The choice of becoming a medical assistant has a lot to do with my love of helping people, the compassion for humanity; and the desire to make a difference in someone’s life. In today’s society where people are only concern with themselves instead of the betterment of our community. Becoming a medical assistant will provide a way to show my kindness and love toward people. However, getting a degree in medical assisting is the career I have choosing and a goal I will accomplish with much pride and honor.
The second competency that resonated with me was the ability to “Demonstrate the use of informatics methodologies to advocate for patient autonomy, dignity and rights and in policy development that would support both the patient and the institution.” I am passionate about advocacy. As a nurse and officer, I must often advocate for my patients and the soldiers who serve under my leadership because I recognize keeping them at the center will improve overall outcomes, satisfaction and morale. Despite the challenges and push back I may encounter as an advocate, it is my responsibility to the patient and soldier. The competencies acquired with this specialty will mature my advocacy. Additionally, I will be
Choice of Nursing I chose nursing as a career because I knew it was my calling. I have the desire to help and care for people who are in need and this was what drew me into this profession. Being a nurse gives me that rewarding feeling, knowing that I’ve made a positive difference in my patient’s life. I love interacting with people and nursing gives me that chance to do it every day. With nursing, I have so many options and specialties to choose from.
Although there are many responsibilities to take care of, I am able to push myself simply because of one thing: motivation. As an aspired nurse practitioner, I plan to pursue my education through graduate school and eventually, serve my community as a healthcare professional. My interest in nursing began
My leadership in nursing is grounded in the knowledge of the needs of patients; knowledge of skills, individual characteristics and needs of the staff employees; and objectives implemented by the group. The strongest feature of is the stimulation of motivation for each employee to develop their potential, and to take care of a particular patient where the employee recognises that he was considered the best qualified who provided with a service that meets his needs . My leadership in nursing allows me to implement the actions with a view to achieving higher levels of efficiency in care in health and nursing, while in the professional practice law and the code of ethics I find support for the development of process of nursing leadership. According to the theory, the restrictions and requirements the hospitals hinder intimidate the professional nursing as to argue in front of such situation. Another aspect that deserves attention is the fact that, after completing the graduation, I enter a labor market, which requires professional
Climbing up the ladder to achieve a master degree in nursing will be the first commendable achievement. I firmly believe that an educated and empowered nurse provides the best nursing care at all times. Similarly, I would carry out numerous research projects in the field of nursing to determine the primary causes of common illness. It is indeed prudent to note that achieving all these things requires the support of all the stakeholders in the nursing
I thought that this would be a great way to develop a better understanding of the career and what it takes to care for others. The STNA classes I completed to receive certification and the work as a patient aid that followed helped me confirm that I was making the right choice with respect to my career choice. I worked as a personal care aid in an assisted living home to gain knowledge and experience and I am extremely grateful for that opportunity. Working in the health care field provided a chance to care for the elderly and watch nurses do their jobs. I saw at first-hand the impact of diseases including, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, but more importantly, I witnessed the impact of empathy and good care had on a patient and their families.
To enhance patient outcome quality is always a goal of the health care industry. One way to achieve this is therefore to encourage and facilitate nurses’ participation in clinical judgment. As demonstrated, true empowerment is the antecedent of good clinical judgment. This means a structurally empowering environment, a belief of self-efficacy and autonomy to provide valuable quality care, and a nurse-patient partnership. Unless nurses feel empowered, they will however rely on physicians’ order or the bureaucratic system rather than their ability and creativity to make
One of the reasons why I have decided on this career path is my willingness to work directly with people and help them. I realize that nursing requires full dedication, as it is a profession for the whole life. That is why it was decided that the Nursing Degree at Georgia Southwestern State University would equip me with all necessary skills and knowledge on my way to become a professional nurse. I consider the abilities to show compassion, make autonomous decisions and satisfy needs of various individuals are among the biggest challenges in the nursing sector. In addition, there are some outer ones as budget cuts and growing workload for nurses at different hospitals and care centers.
Morehouse School of Medicine is an appealing option for pursuing my medical education. When reading Morehouse’s mission statement, improving the health and well-being of individuals and communities grasped my attention. My clinical experiences revolve around communities that are underserved, and sharing the same mission as Morehouse is key to becoming the physician I aspire to be. One of the things that stood out to me about Morehouse is the student run Good Samaritan Health Center. I am very interested about being involved with God Samaritan, because it is akin to the Siloam Family Health Center that I volunteer at, and it is an embodiment of Morehouse’s mission.
I am thankful for my experience as an STNA and Restorative Aide at Darby Glenn in addition to my time at UD. Each has inspired my love for nursing and has influenced me to set new personal and professional goals. I ask for your consideration for admission into your program, which will facilitate my goal of becoming an Adult Gerontology Primary Care or Family Nurse Practitioner.

In addition, exposure to wide variety of casework and early operational exposure to optimize experience in the operating room is important. I would also be very interested in pursuing research to complement my clinical training, especially given my strong background and experience in research.

I aim to be a nurse for the lifelong learning experiences that will allow me to grow and develop each day. As an interdisciplinary profession, nursing employs numerous duties beyond medical care. Critical thinking and creativity are vital to give patients the best treatment possible, as well as empathy and kindheartedness to display care and to promote comfort for patients and their families. Employing these qualities
Serving the underprivileged and underinsured has also always been a particular passion of mine. I feel that the mission, values and visions of the institute that one receives their education from should align closely with their personal beliefs as these are the values that will be taught and form ones character over the duration of the program. Georgetown University’s School of Nursing focuses not only on the individual but also the community as well as being a catalyst for health and social justice as mentioned in the Mission Statement and Vision directly correlate with my personal values and visions. The part that resonates with me the most is the Value of the Common Good which states that there is special emphasis placed on serving the marginalized and underserved. That value is key for me as the want to help the underserved was the primary reason I entered into healthcare.
