For the past two years, I was working with developmentally disabled and substance abuse population. Most of the time, I was delivering direct patient’s care and had limited time to review policies and procedures of the organization. I identified a few policies with which I did not agree. At that moment of reviewing those regulations I knew that a change must be made, however I was also aware that with my title there wasn’t much I could have done. The feeling of being unable to make a difference in people’s life encouraged me to continue my nursing education in order to influence life those in need.
I rarely call in sick. I am conscientious about supplies that are used, being careful not to contaminate or use more supplies than necessary. When patients are admitted to our unit, I start discharge planning and instructions as soon as possible in order to make the discharge from the unit as expedient as possible. Professional development: I am able to improve my personal performance at work by attending continuing education courses, attending hospital training classes and inservices, and maintaining nurse licensure that is always in good standing. I read professional nursing journals and visit nurse websites in my free time to keep up to date on new trends, treatments, and medications.
Using a laminated card and by displaying the Whooley questions discreetly I have implemented them at each clinic I have undertaken since. It is essential that the HV is both confident and competent in the delivery of the questions and committed to exploring any concerning outcomes fully. It has been suggested that many new mothers will not disclose feelings of low mood due to the perceptions a health professional may have if she does. Edhborg (2005) suggested women who are depressed after giving birth often struggle with tremendous guilt over their depression and believe that it means they are a bad mother, this inhibits their likelihood to disclose feelings of low mood to a practitioner. I have seen mothers react after presentation of the Whooley questions, with a sheepish “No” on occasion.
Nurses spend the most time with the patients and it is the nurse’s job to notify the doctor if any changes occur throughout the hospital stay. Without nurses, doctors would be unable to successfully cure the disease process. My vision for myself as a nurse is that I will grow
Being there made me scared but encountering the nice nursing staff and doctors made me feel more secure. I would always ask questions like do you love you job and what made you become a nurse. Getting those answers and having those experiences made me feel more competent about the career choice that I was playing on pursuing. As I got older I began to do research on the field and I learn that it was not only a rewarding career but it was an auspicious one also. Nursing is one of the few careers that not only help others but it also helps
Growing up and hearing stories at family gatherings of their experiences, always left me on the edge of my chair. I would not go play barbies with my cousins or basketball with the uncles I was the kid eavesdropping in on the adult conversations. I wanted to know more but most of all I was intrigued. I believe that nursing is both art and a science consisting of psychosocial and biological sciences that work together to continually improve the health care field. As a nurse it is crucial to carry the attributes of being caring, compassionate, understanding, nonjudgmental, realistic, open-minded, honest, ethical, and moral.
Nursing Long ago there was a close and personal relationship between a physician and their patient, but today that no longer exists. This has left an empty gap between medical personal and their patients, and in today’s time that gap has been filled by the role of nurses. Nurses were once seen as the doctors as the doctors assistant, a mere tool if you will, assigned to a doctor for doing the work that did not seem important such as paperwork. Now, nurses have risen to the apex of the medical community not only commanding more responsibility, but also generating much more respect amongst other medical professions. Nurses were always viewed as feminine females prancing around the hospital giving sponge baths, but no more.
At the Long Term Care where I worked as a student nurse, they didn’t have as many residents as the Heimstead Lodge where I also worked as a student nurse and many health care aids ended up going home because there wasn’t enough work to go around. Another negative experience that I faced when working as a student nurse was now the employees, especially the health care aids treated me. They would come up to me at times and tell me that there was a problem or that I was doing something wrong or tell me that one of my fellow student nurse should be looking after their client. This happened at the Heimstead and soon after, the student nurses, I and our instructor moved on to the Long Term Care and the reception we got was amazing. The head of the facility greeted us and gave us a tour of the facility and told us that if we didn’t have
Anesthesiology's focus is pain and its control, both within and outside the operating room. Unfortuantly I got to witness this job in action when I was younger which I believe that experience may have greatly influenced my decison along with a few other clumsy momments in my life. Now this proffesion is going to take alot of schooling which I knew my family could not afford to help me with and it was also going to take alot of time and motivation. But I know this is what I want to be; I know that this is my future. "In general, an Anesthesiologist is a medical doctor who cares for a patient before, during and immediately following a surgical or medical procedure by administering appropriate anesthesia and monitoring the patient for reactions and complications, and to ensure comfort and manage pain.
I tried to study business, but then my father said no. As a good daughter I went to the nursing program to make everybody happy. And I made it -- everybody were happy, except me. Being in a hospital is very hard, even for the high salary. So, I decided to talk seriously with my parents, saying that I am not under 21 anymore, I am married, and as a mother of two I think I know, what I really want to do with my life.
