like any other x-ray scenario, make sure I am familiar with the equipment prior to going into surgery and get familiar with the types of surgeries I will be doing. I think once I get out and start working my O.R. anxiety will go away once I start working. My strengths are that I am a hard worker in the clinical setting I was always willing to do whatever they needed me to do and I was willing to take constructive critic on how I can become a better tech or even on how to manage my time when doing different procedures on the same patient. I
There are also so many different fields to go into the opportunities are endless. This is why I am so glad that I decided that this is really something I want to do for the rest of my life. Being a Physical Therapist would give me an opportunity to have an important job, be successful and maybe one day have my own practice, and the pay is pretty decent. After taking this class it made me want to become a Physical Therapist even more
The doctors cut my tendons so they could reform my foot and fastened in metal pins to hold it in place until my feet could heal. After the surgery I had full leg cast. I learned how to walk in the full leg casts. My parents said that it was amazing how much balance that I had. At checkups, the foot surgeon would tell me that I was handicapped.
As she said some students they have had in the past just hang around waiting to be told what to do whereas if I saw someone doing something I offered to help. There I quite a few things I need to be doing when I go back on placement like being more confident around the patients/service users as I think that any signs of nerves they will pick up on this and take advantage. My mentor also advised that it would be a good idea if I became familiar with some of the drugs that they use on a regular basis and gave me a sheet outlining the common drugs used in mental health nursing and she also gave me a copy of the British National Formulary (BNF) and said that if I was ever unsure about a drug I was administering I should always look in the BNF. I also need to remember to always minimize personal risk by always staying at least an arms length away from a patient and to give them lots of space and never to get stuck in a corner and if anyone does start to show any form of aggression I need to be firmer and explain that that behaviour whether verbal or otherwise is totally
There were many games and practices that I tried to play, and I was constantly going against my body and making myself worse rather than better. I ended up spending months in the hospital which resulted to me having to quit playing the sport that I had grown to love. I didn’t want to quit, and as hard as it was for me quit, and no matter how upset I got because I felt like I was letting my teammates down, I knew that my determination to play had allowed me to gain one more piece of knowledge that I use today. I learned that in everything I do and that if I continue to try, regardless of how many times it takes, I will eventually succeed. All I have to do to is put my mind to whatever I am trying to accomplish and stay determined, with giving up not even being an
I got to interact and learn about the job and learn the ropes. I learned that every patient had a different story behind why they were in physical therapy. Also every patient had a certain strengthen routine for the certain muscle they are weak in. While on my job shadow Mrs. Jen showed me the upside and downside of being a physical therapist. The fun part about being a physical therapist
My Vision for Social Change Walden University Social Change Social change is part of my professional and academic goal because, I have watch patient over the years and seen how patient are affected by their health diagnosis mentally and physically and some patient and there family really don’t know how to handle or cope with their diagnosis. Mental Health help client people understand and help them with different technique on how to accept different life issue. Just thinking that Nursing was the only way of making a different not knowing anything about Psychology until start my journey in nursing school and taking Psychology class then realizing that Nursing is not the only way to help people.

I was always especially interested in occupational therapy because of the way that they are intricately involved with trying to get the patients that they serve back to health and to prevent further injury. Inside I know that occupational therapy is one of the greatest interests that I have and I have several lifelong friends that have been in the field for many years. It would bring me great pleasure to be able to serve those who cannot help themselves and to optimize their assets that they have and attempt to restore the ones they have lost due to
I can improve my Emotional Intelligence Assessment rating. To a great degree I need to eliminate the stress or at least manage it. My primary, doctor even tells one that I need to attend some stress reliving aerobics classes, to assist with my high blood pressure. In-addition, I always put everyone else’s problems before mind and helps them with their stress which, places more stress upon a person. I have been like this so long that I need to start caring about myself.
