“Chiquita, I believe in you and you will do fabulous.” “Okay Ginny, you are right but it has been two and half years since I have demonstrated bed side nursing.” Ginny instructed to level the bed to be able to conduct a head to toe assessment. “What were the reasons you chose to become a Trauma Nurse?” Chiquita asks. Ginny replies “because I have compassion as well as advocate for the patients that come into the facility.” “I believe in giving each and every patient the fighting chance they deserve in order to survive.” “You will achieve GG” Chiquita continues to brace her smile. “is that why you decided to leave Riverside? So you could come over here to achieve your goal to become a Trauma nurse?” Ginny replied in an exciting tone “of course, do not get me wrong I enjoyed every moment at Riverside but I feel I could become a better nurse at Sentra, besides Sentra is the only level one trauma hospital in the region.” “I completely understand,” Chiquita responds.

A pleasurable aspect volunteering at the United Hebrew Nursing and Rehabilitation facility was the opportunity to see the patients actively involved in meaningful therapeutic activities. In keeping the same schedule for several weeks it allowed me to briefly follow certain clients rehabilitation regimes. It enabled me to gain an understanding of the role of an Occupational Therapist in a skilled nursing facility (SNF) and rehabilitation setting. Therefore, I found it interesting seeing the strategies implemented in the sessions, such as, home hazard assessment and interventions before the patient is discharged. For instance, placing items on the floor and asking a high functioning patient how/if they could pick up the items if home alone.
I have helped my mother, who is a CNA, with my uncle who has MS. When I was helping her was when I noticed that becoming a nursing assistant will be my long-term job. I have learned so much from my mother and other CNA’s. I want to continue my education, so I can help the people in need. This paper will explore the job description, requirements, and salary expectation, including the path for a nursing assistant.
I am currently completing my certified nurse program to proceed with a job as a patient care technician. I believe a job as a certified nurse assistant will give me a better insight while working beside nurses and observe what set of skills nurses use. My strengths that best suit my personality and this program are determination, effort, caring, critical thinker, discipline, and enthusiastic. These qualities would reflect on a nurse and would make caring for the patient easier. I believe that I belong in the nursing field, because ever since I was a child, I always wanted to make a positive influence in people's lives.
I plan on treating and helping everyone I can. I hope to be the person all the women, men, and children look forward to coming to see. I want to be the nurse practitioner that makes a difference in other people’s lives on a daily basis. Being a nurse practitioner you learn many different things, and that’s what I look forward to the most. There is nothing more than obtaining all the knowledge you can.
She then assumed an interim manager position for one year at Tufts Medical Center. Dorothy says she is frequently networking with her peers to learn new strategies and problem solve similar situations. She also attended the ONL Leadership Academy to bolster her leadership skills. How does Dorothy see the current overall effectiveness at South Shore Hospital, and how would she change it if she could? The CNO at South Shore Hospital is very visible and involved in all areas.
She has demonstrated her knowledge of nursing by receiving her education and working with others in healthcare. I look forward to being like her one day and pursue my dreams, just like Angie did. Motivation is key throughout this whole process. I have always wanted to be a nurse since day one. Seeing my father battle sickness for almost fourteen years confirmed my decision.
I began my career as a registered nurse with now 7 years experience. I have worked 3 different nursing jobs while gaining valuable knowledge from each one. Essentially, I have discovered that some of the best nurses are educators. Yes, nurses are primarily caregivers, but they also have an important secondary role in providing education for patients, the community, and each other. I am eager to become involved in the earliest stages of my students’ journeys to becoming employees in the healthcare sector.
Many individuals shared their personal story on Women in Distress. For instance, Olga a victimized mother of two kids shared “In Distress has helped me get my children back in school, find an apartment and a job, and get furniture, clothing and more at the Thrift Store. The three of us attend therapy at Women in Distress, and day by day we are growing stronger. Women in Distress have helped to set my family free, so that we don’t have to be captives in our own home
I have unknowingly evolved into the nursing student and future registered nurse I want to become through my lived experiences; the interactions between patients and their family members, the nurses that I have worked hand in hand with, and the education I have received from my teachers, have individually helped me build my own personal set of values and beliefs to provide high-quality, patient-centered care to diverse populations with dedication and passion. To help patients meet their goals to bathe, eat, dress and be turned-what many take for granted- is emotionally rewarding and I am honored to have helped all of the patients I have helped the past three years as a hospital volunteer, clinical assistant, and a student nurse advancing in my career with a goal in becoming a registered nurse.
I plan to attend Brigham Young University this fall and take advantage of their excellent Family Life Human Development Department. I have read that BYU Provo 's Child Life program is amazing and that I can learn everything there I need to achieve my dream vocation. BYU Provo is also one of the few schools that offer the Child Life Specialist major. It has a wonderful children 's hospital close by, which would be invaluable for an internship and practicum. Child Life Specialists are child development experts who work to make sure life remains as normal as possible for children in health care.
For over fifteen years I have enjoyed being an LPN. Working in nursing homes taught me to how to patience and how to use my knowledge to help my patients to the best of my ability. My time as an alcohol and drug rehabilitation nurse helped me to appreciate the courage it takes to admit to a problem, ask for help and the strength it takes to work to get better. Working in a hospital taught me to how to work in a fast paced setting while keeping my sanity intact.
Throughout high school I have participated in many different activities and programs, but one of the opportunities I was given I will carry with me forever. As a junior at River Valley I participated in the Marion General Teen Volunteer Program. After interviewing and being placed in the physical therapy unit I took the opportunity to branch out into other areas of the hospital. I soon made my way to the labor and delivery floor where everyday a miracle happened. My duties while volunteering included assisting the nurses during hearing checks, changing diapers, and rocking crying infants in special care.
