Searching in different schools, I found that this program has a bunch of resources not only solid basics of nursing theory , but also nursing practice as well as clinical experience that will give me the opportunity of been successful in different practice situations. The fact of been able to have an integral education, joining theory and practice in the first year of study is one of the reasons I choose this program at Ryerson University. Furthermore, I think Nursing at Ryerson would make me not only a student with excellent communication skills, but also more compassionate, knowledgeable and a health care professional capable to lead and influence the health care field. I am very impressed with all the tools and resource the university has to offer the students experience clinical scenarios and situations as well as the facility of learn and practice nursing skills in an environment almost the same as the real hospital life. Study in one of the leaders in nursing education as is Ryerson University would give me the best education and formation to be a successful professional.
Objectives in setting my goals to ensure my success in my chosen “battle” (Pugsley, 2009). I wanted to satisfy my burning passion to learn and advance my knowledge in the filed that I am in. It is to my understanding that graduate studies will require enormous amount of paper works in APA format thus I intend to master this writing style by the end of this year. I would like to be able to adapt to the changes with my schedules and routines due to this additional responsibility while fulfilling my duties and obligations at home and at work. Ultimately, I would like to graduate MSN/ FNP program on time and become an expert Family Nurse Practitioner who provides quality health care to the underserved populations.
The School of Nursing (SON) vision and mission statements have left a lasting impression of where I want to be advancing my nursing career. Walden University SON (2012a) vision which states that it “will transform nursing with the continuum of care for human life and meet the needs of local and global communities” (para1) is why Walden University appealed to me. The vision of the program to continue my academic career will provide the necessary foundation to build upon my nursing career. Walden will allow me to achieve my ultimate goal and continue to work on my career and present employment. The information obtained through my advanced education can be incorporated
Running head: CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT FOR SPECIALTY INTERNSHIP Curriculum Development for Specialty Internship Joyce Ivie The University of Texas at Arlington College of Nursing In partial fulfillment of the requirements of N5302 Curriculum Development and Education Sharon Judkins, RN, PhD, NEA-BC March 17, 2014 Curriculum Development for Specialty Internship Many nursing internship programs allow interns to choose a specialty, which would ultimately be the specialty they select for their careers. Both the ongoing changes in the delivery of health care and the specialized and technical nature of the dialysis setting demand that new graduates and experienced nurses who choose nephrology nursing as their specialty receive comprehensive training (Singer, 2006). Specialized programs give nurse interns maximum exposure to the field that interests them the most. Specialized education programs for nurses require extensive human and facility resources to be successful (Hall, 2006). This specialty internship program will also assist with retention of nursing staff.
Newly graduates of nursing must be aware that there are some transitions that they have to undergo before they become full pledged nurses. During their initial practice, they will encounter different scenarios in the hospitals or clinics; nursing staff are ready to teach and facilitate the new graduates of the important transitions and development into a professional nurse who later on can make their own significant contributions to the working place. In this regard, the entire health care organization must have a strict orientation scheme that will stress to the newly nursing graduate about the goals and objectives of the organization. In the beginning, new nurse graduates are required to enroll into an orientation program which stresses the important strategies in building good relationships with their colleagues. By this way, all of them can get a solid support system from one another.
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 also feel that there is not only medical help that patients ask for from nurses but attention, care and sympathy which I feel that I could distribute. I also have a genuine concern for the sick and the wounded. Taken together, these several factors clenched my decision to pursue nursing. I have chosen to pursue baccalaureate preparation in nursing for one it is a stepping stone to receiving a master’s degree in nursing which I am very interested in obtaining. Also having the baccalaureate degree in nursing gives me more opportunities in the competitive career world.
Transitioning from the role of senior nursing student to registered nurse, with new workplace expectations and professional accountability has become a reality shock for most NGN. This paper examines the importance of adequate orientation time to help facilitate the transition from NGN to the registered nurse role, and how it benefits not only the NGN but also health care organizations hiring NGN. Preparation for transitioning from NGN to competent RN should begin during the last year of nursing school. According to Hatler, Stoffers, Kelly, Redding and Carr (2011) Nursing school faculty need to develop ways to more accurately shape students expectations and skill regarding their abilities and to provide time and guidance for discussion and reflection related to the often overwhelming aspects of actually working as a nurse. Experiences in the workplace often prompt different priorities
Once the nurse has began establishing a relationship with their patient, they must be careful to not pass or show any judgment on a patient’s decisions, beliefs, values, or culture. The professional nurse should demonstrate sensitivity to diverse cultural needs and ethnic backgrounds. Having an open mind is always necessary when dealing with such a wide array of people in the public as a nurse would be. Because healthcare is a continually expanding field, a professional nurse should be willing to stay up to date with continuing education or seminars, learning new and better ways to provide the best care possible for patients. The nurse should reflect a high degree of professionalism to patients, the public, and other professionals.
I will be a nurse; I will be taking care of people and helping them with their physical and emotional need and I will make them feel as much comfortable as possible. For me nursing is life, nursing is education, nursing is caring for people and understanding what patient is in need for; that is how I would define nursing. My main goal in this point of life is to finish my nursing education and become a good nurse. I am highly inspired by the nurses and their beliefs and the way of communication with patient here. My values will always consider patient first, for me patient’s need and interest is always my first priority, therefor altruism is greatest value for me as a part of nursing.
