I need to speak up when I know an answer to a question. I need to ask questions if I don’t know the answers and not worry about what people might think of my question. I need to be put on the spot to get up in front of a room full of people to speak, demonstrate, and answer questions they may have in reference to what I have just discussed or demonstrated. I feel like I am as prepared as I know how to be for school. I have been out of school for many years, but I feel that now is my time to achieve my goals and return back to school and become a registered nurse.
I will never forget visiting her in the ICU and thinking it would be the last time I would see her. Luckily, she healed and was eventually back to normal. After seeing the positive impact the nurses and their care had on my nana, I knew it was my calling. I wanted to provide patients with proper care and help change lives. I will be a first generation healthcare graduate.
When becoming a nurse it should be something that you have always dreamed of this is a career that you should have passion for since it is working with people all day. When making the decision in becoming a nurse, I looked at all those options and still decided that this was the career for me. The median pay for a registered nurse is $64,690 a year or $31.10 a hour. In theory I think a nurse should be paid more because they do a lot of things and still don’t get paid enough in some states. Once I become a nurse I’m sure that I will make a great one and also be excited to come to the work place daily.
I have to be able to make sure that I set aside enough time to do my schoolwork. Having a wife and children and also having a full time job with a lot of overtime, and which I drive to and from an hour every day can make it difficult to get my work done proficiently. Making sure that my wife does not get overloaded with the children is also a concern. I do not want the fact that I am attending school and work affect the duties that I have as a father and as a husband. I also want to make sure that they understand that I have to spend the time needed to get my work done as effectively as possible.
I can identify with more than one nursing theory influencing my practice but the one I most readily relate with is Julia Brenner’s Theory of Novice to Expert. I believe the reasons started when I was a brand new nurse at a small rural critical access hospital. They sent me to a class for “novice” nurses. It was a class that purpose was to further educate and provide an environment where we could voice our experiences. The hospital had a hard time retaining employees and one motive for the class was helping new nurses feel more comfortable and helping us have meaningful, fulfilling employment.
* Attendance * I have to call roll for the first couple of days for administrative purposes, but I will not take formal attendance. * You’re adults and you can make your own decisions about coming to class; plus I get that things happen sometimes. * Just know that you should try to be in class as much as possible because: * You will miss notes and about 70% of the exams come from lecture * You also risk missing exercises/daily work, which cannot be made up * Blackboard * Syllabus, handouts, exam reviews, study materials, and your grades will be posted here * Note, Blackboard Grades tries to give a calculated total, but this is inaccurate because I have to drop grades * Everyone familiar with how BB works?

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.
After working here for about a year one day one of my female coworkers came up to me and said, “You’re going to be a really awesome nurse.” I hadn’t thought much about going into nursing because I always thought of it as a feminine career path. I’ve looked into it extensively and there are so many options in the nursing field that it would literally take all day to explain them all. Here I am in school now. I finally know what I want to do with my life and I am motivated to reach my final goal. I’m going to be a nurse.

I no longer had my mom enrolling me in school, it was all up to me. Picking classes and choosing what time I wanted to be in school was something I was definitely not used to, yet something I could get used to and like a whole lot better. The one factor of college that did kill me though was the fact that me, myself, and I were responsible for paying for everything. I never understood why everyone complained about textbooks until I took a look at the prices tags and saw ALL the books my professors required. Not only did my heart hurt, but so did my
