Profile Essay While working several shifts in an Alzheimer's unit in a local care facility, I had the opportunity to meet a registered nurse named Sarah. Sarah had plenty of insight on what it is like being a nurse in a facility. During my observations of her duties I witnessed many things that opened my eyes as to what I want in my future career choices.
There is a high significance for a nursing student completing their degree in nursing to start their career as a nurse practitioner. Nursing students must prepare to become nationally certified by an accredited body upon completion of their schooling in order to advance their career (AANP, 2016). This academic accreditation process helps to show that the students have met the requirements to practice as a Nurse Practitioner in their population focus testing. The scope of practice will be affected based on the certification that the practitioner obtains. If the Nurse Practitioner obtains a certification as a nurse specialists in pediatrics, oncology, geriatrics, emergency medicine, etc. there are scopes and standards of practices that the practitioner must not act outside of (ANA, 2016). There are also state regulation scopes of practices that allow for Nurse Practitioners to practice independently, with reduced practice, and with restricted practice. Along with these practice environments, Nurse Practitioners must abide by facility and institutional policy and procedures that outline their scope of practice (ANA, 2016). There are very few states that still allow Nurse Practitioners to practice without a national certification. These states in the future may require the nurses however to in fact take national certification as more employers and third party insurers for malpractice are looking
Growing up with parents very passionate about the health care field has had a tremendous influence on my decision to pursue the health sciences. This was because of two things: my interest in helping others and my fascination with science. I was always been interested with science in grade school mostly because it interested me to see how living organisms functioned. This was especially true when it came to the human body. Helping others has also always been a passion of mine for as long as I remember. It always has given me great joy helping others to be happy or feel better about themselves in any way possible. So it made sense for me to go into college as a Nursing major. My mom has always been a huge inspiration in my life, so it made sense to me to strive to be a nurse just like her.
I took an interest in nursing four years ago. During this time my grandmother, who was my best friend fell and broke her hip. She was 100 years old so after her fall there wasn't much she could do on her own. It was heartbreaking to see the most strongest and independent person I know become so weak and depressed. I then made it my duty to take care of her when my mom or uncles couldn't. The things I saw disturbing a few years ago such as cleaning someones private parts and changing their dressing on rashes became something I didn't mind doing. My only concern was making sure she was comfortable. It was an amazing feeling when I helped her maintain hygiene, clean her bed, take her down the street in her wheelchair for some sun, serve her food

During the time-out, the circulating nurse said the patient’s name, the surgery that the patient was getting, and the limb in which the surgery was being performed on. The other health care professionals agreed that it was the right patient, right site, and right procedure. Throughout the surgery the circulating nurse continued to ensure the safety of the patient by watching the surgical staff and making sure that the sterile field was not contaminated. This nurse’s role also included gathering materials for the surgeon, throwing away trash, and keeping the environment comfortable for the staff.
Ever since I can remember I have always wanted to make a difference and help anyone in need that I possibly could. From the start of my childhood, I can recall helping my mother care for my great grandparents, so they would be able to live out the rest of their lives from their home, instead of in a nursing home. As a young child it was extremely difficult to live with and watch my loved ones deteriorate as they got older, as their condition got worse and worse, and saw my mother having a difficult time keeping up with caring for both of my great grandparents 24/7, it put a lot of stress on the family. However, I am grateful to have been able to help my mother care for them. Growing up in such a caring and loving household made the situation
