I am very interested in starting a specific service project my junior year for CAS hours and this would be a great help to me with that. I think that I would be a valuable attendee to CASL because I am a freshman. Anything I learn can be used for all the rest of my four years of high school. I would also be a valuable attendee to the CASL conference because I would easily be able to make up the work that I miss on that Monday from school. I am also one of the older ones out of all my classmates so I would like to go to CASL so that I can learn to be a better leader to those who might look up to me.
| At school | At the start of the course | During and after studying health and social care | Knowledge | In secondary school I did study BTEC Health and Social Level 2 so I do know quite the basics about Health and Social. I got a merit for this course, I could have got a distinction but I did do 3 more other subjects which I had to focus on as well. I always had an interest in this subject because it expanded my knowledge in a range of things as I done 7 units covering 7 topics. My teacher explained each unit clearly and if we wanted help she would have gave us that support to make it more understandable. Whilst I was doing this course I realised this course is for people who want to pursue a career in a health and social care sector, to become a nurse, midwife, social worker, counsellor , care worker etc.
Kathleen went to school to become a nurse practitioner when Becka turned one, and Brent took care of her during the day while Kathleen went to school. He worked as a custodian in the evenings. They have advocated strongly for Becka’s inclusion in the general education classroom, sometimes needing to threaten the schools with mediation. However, the schools and Becka’s family have finally recognized the value of her placement, and have seen significant growth in Becka’s social and academic outcomes. Becka has one younger brother, Alex, who is in the first grade, and who is progressing well through the general curriculum.
Developmental psychology is another important course I took. I did not realize how beneficial that course was until I started working in a clinical setting. Many of the unhealthy behavior patterns clients come in with were developed as a result of specific events that took place in the early years of their life. After have worked in a clinical setting the last couple of years I can guess the kind of childhood a client had just by observing him/her for a couple of days. Another extremely important course I took was Clinical Psychology.
Personal statement I have always been greatly fascinated by cardiology since my first exposure to an ECG as a first year nursing student. Since I graduated as a registered nurse, I have worked in acute general medicine, a nursing home and cardiac care settings. Comparing my experience in different work speciality, I learned that I enjoy most working in cardiology and CCU. My interest in cardiac nursing has been further stimulated as I have continued to learn more in this subject area through trainings, courses related to cardiac care and my day to day work experience in clinical setting. Since I became a registered nurse in UK, it was always in my agenda to continue further studies and gain higher qualifications.
Essay 2 Life changing lessons I all remember those teachers who encouraged me to be better than average, and everyone has at least someone in their life that I admire. Until now, there are two teachers who have influenced in my life. One of them is Mrs. Chau in elementary, and the other one is Mrs. Jennifer who taught my first ESL class. They are the one who raised my standards and change my life. I was six years old when my father moved our family from suburbs of Tien Giang to Saigon city, where I encountered my first teacher, Mrs. Chau at elementary school.
Wendy’s first experience came through working with her own child, which led her to working with children at the Sara A Reed Foundation ( Erie, PA) This is an early intervention Center with an after school behavioral program, where the classroom consisted of 10-12 behaviorally challenged children with only one teacher and Mrs. Silva (aide) When the subject was presented to her she rejected at first with the thoughts of not being able to handle working with children in such a mental state and then returning home with her own child. But she did and over the years she has advanced and has also used experiences from place to place as well as developing curriculum and plans to accommodate the other deserving children. Upon
Many of my earliest memories are of being by my mother's side at the clinic in town. As the son of a registered nurse I had the privilege to get to be back behind those wooden doors instead of sitting in the lobby. As I grew up I loved just sitting at my mom's desk and watching the doctors and physician assistants interact with the patients. I can still remember the first time that a patient walked out of the exam room, wiped away a tear and hugged Dr. Karber. It was at that exact moment I realized what I wanted to do.
Therefore, for the next five years I’m going to be higher my education in my nursing career and prepare for a long overdue vacation after I complete my BSN and MSN Nurse Practitioner programs. I currently have an associate of science degree in nursing. This is an entry level tertiary nursing degree from a community college. (Wikipedia, 2010) I been practicing nursing for the past thirteen in a half years with this degree and I don’t regret getting the ADN degree because it got me prepared to work with patients at the bedside and with the degree we developed strong assessment skills because during the program we had more hands on clinical experience then anything. However, I want to higher my educational level in nursing.
After spending six weeks in the NICU with my best friend and her son, I knew then that was exactly where I wanted to be in 4 years. Those six weeks changed my life. The nurses there are so kind hearted. Even now I am pretty sure that I still want to be a NICU Nurse but every once in a while I think about working in Pediatric Oncology unit. I know that I am meant for the medical field and I will always want to be a part of it.
