I attended nursing school and earned an LPN license, but I was determined to get my BSN. I knew nursing school would not be cheap, so I looked for a job as a patient care tech in a hospital. I knew I wanted to work someday in a hospital. I found a job on a pediatric floor and fell in love with my new job. This floor also has a special hall just for cancer patients. Every day, I see them and their families as they fight their cancer. On the pediatric floor, I will take care of kids of all ages and each with differing diagnoses from surgical patients to cancer patients. I am currently going back to school to finish my bachelor’s degree. My goal after I finish nursing school is to work on a pediatric floor. I plan to become chemo certified and
“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring: all of which have the potential to turn a life around” -Leo Buscaglia. From this week alone in class I have learned how just one little thing can change your residents attitude from being grumpy to being happy again. This to me is what it means to be a CNA. Yes we get paid to change the bed, give them baths and so on but connecting and changing how they feel is probably something you can’t put into words. Not only do you get help them they can help turn around your day as well. Helping others and impacting their life is just one tiny reason why I want to be a CNA. Working as one will never be a dull

When people grow up, they always dream of being successful and becoming something important, such as a doctor or a nurse. My childhood and present-day dream is to become a Veterinarian Technician.

I believe my experience working as a registered nurse for a few years before pursuing my Nurse Practitioner will allow me to experience bedside nursing and only help me become a better caregiver to my patients. With my Nurse Practitioner Degree, I plan to specialize in OBGYN, helping women of all ages, expecting mothers, and those who may need help conceiving. Lastly, another long term goal I plan to obtain is to constantly have a positive affect on my patients lives, despite where I am at in my nursing career. I plan to achieve this goal by never allowing myself to stop learning about the nursing profession so I can provide the best care possible and always allowing my passion for enriching lives of others to shine through on each patient of mine, regardless of the circumstances. Overall, I feel my strong desire for success and endless amount of ambition will help me achieve my short and long term goals in my future of becoming a
I believe that I would greatly enjoy being a NICU registered nurse. I would like to peruse this career because I love anything that has to do with the medical field. I have the nursing classes in high school so I have a jump-start in this career. The medical field is so interesting I love learning about the human body an all its functions.

For me, choosing the career of nursing was quite and easy one. From analyzing the nurses who took care of my father, when he came home, I assumed the position of “head nurse” I took care of him the best way I a child can.We had rotating shift between my sisters and I and he spoke to us as if we were nurses. So may see that as just a game, and so did my sisters, they outgrew what I took as a responsibility. The personality I developed and who I became as person are all based off these moments. I gave myself that title as a child because I saw that the nurse's concerns were to make my father as comfortable as possible so his recovery would go smooth. I looked up to them not because they have broken the rules, but the reason why they broke the rules. I want to be that nurse that understands their patience needs and to be able to provide it to them the best of my
Nursing, the one job everyone says that is so fulling, and will change your perspective on the world forever. I wanted to be a nurse since the time I was 10 years old, because I saw what they do for others every day. Becoming a nurse was so important to me because, I wanted to do something in my career that is interesting, challenging, and makes a difference in people's lives on a daily basis. The one person who always told me I can do whatever I wanted in life was my mom. My mom was my number one supporter, and always told everyone how excited she was for me to fulfill my dreams of becoming a nurse. My mom would always tell me “Sam all your dreams can come true if you just believe in your self”. The days I questioned myself, and thought to myself is nursing really for me, I always thought of those exact
The level of nursing that I am currently at as a Certified Nursing aide is a physically demanding job. I personally do not wish to make a career out of it, only use is as a learning tool and stepping stone for my next level of education. My intent was to become a registered nurse someday, although now I am making other considerations. The personal care that I am able to give to a resident is rewarding. Knowing you have helped someone is a grand thing. As a registered nurse it appears that most of the time is spent charting medical records, dealing with way too many headaches, and passing medication.
A nurse practitioner is a nurse with a graduate degree in advanced practice nursing. When I was little I always said I wanted to become a nurse practitioner.

I was at baseball practice. I was in the outfield, the overgrown and bee infested outfield.
I have always wanted to be a nurse practitioner. My mom has always pushed me to be a nurse, finally I realized what nurses do. I like to help people. I used to always doctor my papaw. I want to be able to help people in need. Also a lot of my family members work in the medical field. My cousin Kim King is a Nurse Practitioner at Takoma Regional Hospital. She started out as a registered nurse and kept the job for 2 years. And then went back to college and became a Nurse Practitioner. She says she does mostly everything a doctor would do.
Dodgeball; the greatest elimination game on Earth. What would you think if you could never play it again? I, for one, would be crushed that could never play it again. Many principals in Elkton, Maryland banned dodgeball because they believed it was inappropriate. They removed it from the P.E. curriculum just recently. I believe that dodgeball shouldn’t be taken out of the curriculum because it helps them be more aware, teaches them about life, and it leads to more games being taken away.

All the influences I have had over time have formed my idea of the perfect occupation, that fits my personality and interests. The careers I have based my future life plans are a pharmacist or a certified registered nurse anesthetist. Both of these careers require a great deal of school and hard work. My decision of these careers was influenced by both of them being within the medical field, and also both focus on helping people. My main interests lie in my math and science classes, which is the reason why both these careers rely heavily on these subjects. My life goal is to achieve the title of one of these distinguished
