GOAL STATEMENT My first goal is to graduate in the top of my class in UC’s Accelerated Pathway nursing program, with a Bachelors of Science in Nursing. While in the program, assuming obviously that I am first accepted, I want to proactively learn from my professors, other teachers, and fellow students. I want to participate fully in every activity of the program to gradually develop an awareness of where I would like to take my nursing career specifically. The possibilities of a nursing career are far and wide, which is very exciting to me. I will take gravely the importance of the nursing profession, as an oversight on behalf of a nurse can have severe consequences to the patient.
YIT1 PROFESSIONAL ROLES AND VALUES CORINNE BRONKEMA WESTERN GOVERNOR’S UNIVERSITY PROFESSIONAL ROLES & VALUES PROJECT My personal nursing mission statement is changing and developing as my career advances, however, one core piece will remain constant. I will strive to provide the best, safest, most ethical and compassionate nursing care that I can for all patients and family members with whom I come in contact. I began my post-high school academic career as an accounting major. I enjoyed the challenge of manipulating a report until I had balanced. I thought I had found my calling.
I did not want to be the primary caregiver (the doctor). I liked the idea of having a career that I can leave at work and not have to worry about on my days off. I also chose because my personality suits nursing. "When you become a nurse you know that every day you will touch a life or a life will touch yours." Author Unknown, "Chamberlain College of Nursing" (2012) I believe that the core of nursing is caring about people.
I decided that I would choose a career in the medical field. I did some research and decided that I would major in medical assisting because I enjoyed help people. I liked the idea of the medical field so much that I took my first job at sixteen as a NA (which is a nursing assistant) in a nursing home. While working there, I helped the residents with their basic daily living such as assisting some of the residents with eating, bathing, making sure that their basic needs were met. So I used that as a stepping stone to begin my decision to go into the medical field.
I watched the nurse’s and talked with them about what they did and how they did it (and how much money they made). That was when I decided what I wanted to do. I wanted to be an ER Nurse. Prior to becoming a nurse, I had the opportunity to become a Certified Respiratory Therapist. I felt that would benefit me as I went to nursing school.
Though it’s not required for a Pediatric nurse to have a bachelor's degree, I will further my education because this degree will provide better job opportunities and an increased salary. As a student at Coffee High school I have been able to experience what this career choice will be like through the classes I have chosen to complete. Intro to Applications and Applications to therapeutic services, two classes I have already completed, and Nursing essentials, a class I am currently enrolled in has provided me with knowledge reflecting healthcare careers such as a pediatric nurse. In years to come I will definitely be able to benefit from this continuing experience. A pediatric has many duties they are required to fulfill.
Why do I want to become an LPN is because I am a motivated health care professional seeking growth and advancement in the nursing field by continuing thru License Practical Nurse. I have all the qualities of becoming an exceptional LPN. My strengths lie in creative problem solving and managing priorities. I have also exceptional ability to work under pressure, goal oriented, dependable and conscientious team player capable of interacting effectively with all areas of management. I am highly organized, excellent in communication and customer service skills.
My desire to do this course is because; I have always shown a growing interest into Health & Social Care and Nursing, as it strikes me as a worthwhile and satisfying career to choose. I am a confident student willing to provide the university with good communication skills, supporting others, and being able to interact closely with them. I feel that health & social care would be rewarding and create different pathways for my future. My career plans are centred in the future of the NHS and in the Care Home or Nursing Home. I would like to go into a working friendly others with their needs and seeing them to better health.
To treat them with honesty, dignity, and respect is my core focus. My vision for myself as a nurse is that I will create a map in my mind and set high standardized goals which will lead me toward the advancement of my career. I will continue to educate myself with the latest technology and research which will help me in my professional career. I want to succeed in my leadership role which will make a difference in nursing as I can give rise to other successful nurses. I will use all my strength and skills to complete all the challenges I face to provide the best outcome for my patient and the organization.
Success to me is the accomplishment of all desired goals in life. In order to be successful one needs a good deal of self-determination. For that reason, it is imperative to begin planning ahead of time short and long term goals. After completing my Bachelor of Science in Nursing, I have always wanted to pursue my graduate studies; however, the online programs have never been an option. I am more of a visual and audio learner than kinesthetic.
