Success For The CENA Working with the sick, the disabled, or the helpless is both an emotional and physical job to take on. One of the most important jobs in a care team would have to be the CENA (certified and evaluated nurse assistant). They are the paraprofessionals who are the right hand to a licensed nurse or other health care professional. They provide the primary care for those who are unable to care for themselves. The tasks given can be responsible for major wear and tear on both the mind and body.

Nurses should be recording vital signs, order appropriate laboratory work ups, put Mr. P on oxygen via cannula, put him on I&O, administer prescribed medications, and strict daily weights.
Registered Nurse Do you remember being a child and constantly being asked “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Well I was the kid that always gave a different answer every time. I was always undecided regarding the career that I wanted to pursue. As I got older I realized that I wanted to have a career in the medical field. Being a nurse interests me because it requires the study of the human body, it is respected and because I find fulfillment in being able to help those who are in need.

ACT Task 1 As in every job, a RN is responsible for providing adequate care to all patients despite their prior background. A nurse must be versatile and understand that it is acceptable to be different and learn how to adapt to different cultural, age, gender and religious preferences in order to make the patient feel secure about the treatment that he/she will be receiving.

Jane Vuong is a Vietnamese 24 year-old

I always think about the patient first before thinking about what is going to save my job money; and this is my constant struggle. Altruism is something I believe is the reason I became a nurse. Autonomy The state of existing or acting separately from others. My current job autonomy is necessary.

Training and Development Welcome Knox HCS 341 March 17, 2014 Dr. Rita Fields Training and Development My paper will be about training and development in healthcare and why it is vital to have. I will also discuss the importance of measuring employee’s competencies and the process of tracking and evaluating training effectiveness.

In the instance that a mother is abusing drugs and applying for welfare, she probably isn’t adequately caring for her children in the first place due to the drug usage. Denying welfare assistance because she is on drugs only puts more of a burden on the children. As social workers, it is our responsibility to ensure that, first and foremost, the most important social needs are being met before thinking about other social problems like drug usage and allocation of tax
I believe when they are on it too long, the brain develops wrong and can cripple them mentally in the long run. I feel that some doctors have a lack of understanding on these conditions and just give out medication to hopefully fix the problem, only in the short term. People need to learn to cope with their problems without
