Discussion will include a professional and a personal short-term and long term goal with the needed skills to achieve them, and milestones for goal achievement using effective time management. Values are the qualities and principles one considers important. A professional short term goal is to return to online education to finish a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing (BSN). The value here is the personal and professional growth possible in becoming an educated nurse. This connects to the professional long-term goal to achieve a Master’s of Science (MSN) after finishing the BSN.

It has prepared me well for what I will most likely have to deal with in my future career. Having completed a Diploma in Child Care of which I gained Distinction and a Level 3 Child Care Award I feel I am ideally suited to further my abilities given the right training. This allied with the continual care I provide for my sister which includes not only support but administering class A drugs, dealing with seizures, changing dressings and regularly changing her ACE stoma I have been given a lot of practical experience in real-time situations, the ideal place to put my skills to use. To further my understanding of healthcare I arranged work experience as a carer at a local special needs school nursery for four months in 2008, an incredible experience where I watched young children develop and improve their skills daily. My
Selena Treviño CRSS—4th Mrs. Kissire November 14, 2013 Pathways to Becoming a Physician Assistant or a Nurse Practitioner I am very interested in becoming either a physician assistant or a nurse practitioner. I am interested in these careers because I love helping others and doing anything in my power to make others feel better. I enjoy working with others and helping others daily. A physician assistant and a nurse practitioner are common but differ in their unique ways and require two different paths to complete. A Physician Assistant (PA) is a skilled healthcare provider who is academically and clinically prepared to practice medical skill sunder the supervision of a licensed physician.
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.
In my studies associated with this course, I have gained a greater appreciation for the history and evolution of our profession. I have come to appreciate that each professional nurse has an obligation to advocate for our professional practice as a means to ensure optimal patient care and outcomes. By sharing our specialized knowledge and understanding of healthcare and patient needs with politicians and legislators, we can shape the direction of legislative change and reform. I have also learned a great deal regarding nursing jurisprudence. As a young RN, I worked in a critical care setting.
I would like to go into a working friendly others with their needs and seeing them to better health. I have always wanted to be involved in working in a health care setting from an early age as I spent a lot of time in hospital community of nursing, working for the NHS. Health & social care would satisfy me helping with my Grandmother who was dieing from cancer. This has inspired me to carry out a career in nursing, as I would like to learn more about health care and develop my knowledge and practical skills to qualify me to be able to practice as a nurse. In 2003 I studied Health and social care, which has shown me new ways of life and insight to how life changes.
Transformational leadership is a leadership style where leaders create an inspiring vision of the future, motivate their followers to achieve it, manage implementation successfully, and develop the members of their teams to be even more effective in the future. Therefore, as a new DNP transformational leader with an instinctive ability to analyze and problem solve, I propose to address the curricula and practice competencies related to nursing skill standards. These standards create concepts that supports defining leadership roles and eliminating health disparities. Sherman (2012) states that transformational nurse leaders are able to identify the changes their environment needs, guide the change by inspiring followers, and create a sense of commitment to change. Transformational leadership hinges on a high level of engagement between leaders and followers.
Nursing is a practise-based profession, so it is vital that the clinical skills, that are the tools of the grade(Maggie 1999).According to White(2000),‘To enable students to develop their proficiency in clinical skills nurse educators use innovative methods of supplementing the practice placement experience by turning to simulated practice to achieve this’ (2000). When I was in University, we use role play in simulation lab to monitor vital signs and record it in different Standard Adult General Observation (SAGO) charts. Mayne et al. (2004) further explained that ‘Simulated practice enables students to increase their competencies in the performance of the practical skills in a safe environment’(2004). Being a first year student, my mentor usually allocated me a post-operative patient received back from theatres to record patients' observations includes blood pressure, heart rate, temperature and respiration (Bulman and Schutz 2004).In the postoperative phase, patient surveillance is based on routine and regulated observation.
As a high school student I dreamed of obtaining my Bachelors of Science in Nursing and as a graduate I will strive to obtain my masters and someday even a doctoral degree. I want to be the best that I can be at any level and will work hard to excel in any situation that comes my way. As a family nurse practitioner I will be lucky enough to be able to provide care for all age groups of patients and families. I would like to work in a setting where I can work with various populations such as a community clinic or even a primary care physician’s office. Some other goals that I am working towards or have achieved include certifications such as; ACLS, PALS, CCRN, and a bachelors degree in Spanish language.
