It is ironic how many times I heard “I always knew you were going to be a nurse,” from all of my family and friends when I had never even considered nursing as a career. Is it possible that my upbringing had been molding me to become the nurse I am today all along? I think so. Professional Identity Currently, I am the night Charge Nurse on an acute Oncology floor. I have grown from the nervous self-conscious graduate nurse to the leader of my team in nearly 3
I married young and was going to be a stay at home mom while I decided what else I wanted to do with my life. At 21 years of age I went into labor with my first child, an event that would change my life in so many ways. It was a long, difficult labor. My husband and I looked much younger than our age and we were treated as such. The nurses who came in and out of the room barely looked at us, talked down to us and talked to each other about us.
I would love to have the opportunity to graduate from nursing, because I have a strong desire to help people and make a difference in the quality of their lives every day. What is also noteworthy about nursing is that there is no another job as rewarding as being a nurse. Each day I will have an impact on patients´ lives, and have the opportunity to save someone´s life. I think there is no reward greater than that. Searching in different schools, I found that this program has a bunch of resources not only solid basics of nursing theory , but also nursing practice as well as clinical experience that will give me the opportunity of been successful in different practice situations.
Jobs are hard to find these days, especially when they are seeking a High School diploma or a College degree of some sort. My returning back to school is the best decision that I have made thus far and when I finally graduate, I will know for sure that I made the right choice. My family has a lot to do with me returning to college, I know that there are different job opportunities for me. In order to make it in this world, you have to have some type of degree. Having financial problems played a factor also in my returning to school.
| Why Nursing? Writing Assignment Justin Bluff Spartanburg Community College People who work in healthcare are a different breed from the average person. For the most part their patience is endless, their determination to manage some of the worst situations we could imagine is incredible, and that internal drive to care for their fellow man knows no bounds. I truly believe nurses aren’t made there born with the instinct to help others and satisfy their drive to be the best that they can in helping lives. That’s the person I want to become, giving me the opportunity to care for others and be a source of information and education for people who desperately need to make a life style change.
In my nursing class, I learned that doctors cure the sickness and nurses cure the patient. This means that the nurse attends to the physical, mental, and psychosocial aspects in the care of patients. Some days can be demanding on the mind and body, but you can still go home and be grateful of what you have done for someone else. I believe that the core of nursing is love and passion for others. Without this love and passion, why is one in nursing.
What wasn’t normal was that she was sad, very sad. I had never seen my grandmother cry, that I could remember, and even worse I had no idea why she was crying. Now I can’t believe she didn’t cry more. Then she went to the hospital for a long time for various surgeries, and plans on what to do next. My brother and I stayed at my Grandpa’s house most of the time she was up there mostly only going home to sleep and get ready for school the next day, it was weird and confusing but my grandpa was good at getting our minds off of things and keeping our spirits up when he needed to.
First Year in College It was not difficult at all when I was faced with the decision of choosing my career path. It has always been my plan to graduate high school, and attend college to become a doctor. I am a kind hearted person that has always had a passion of voluntarily helping others out as best I could, whenever I notice someone is in need of help. However, at the time I was not aware of the effort and responsibility it would take to actually become successful at my goal of becoming a nurse until I had to learn self discipline the hard way. I was overly excited and nervous at the same time, preparing for my first year of college.
When people are very sick and have to lay in bed for months without showing a bit of progress, as in the majority of the cancer cases, they are in agony.“The Doctor believed that life must be extended as long they have the means and knowledge to do it” (Huttmann 114). This was a very scientific method of thinking. Doctors did not consider the emotional impact of the disease on the patient and the family members. Physicians are supposed to know when a person can have a chance to recuperate from sickness. In Macs case, the Doctor did not get emotionally involved and chose to endlessly approve resuscitation efforts.
I knew I couldn’t care for the baby like I wanted to. I was unemployed and I just started going to school for my GED. I knew there would be a family out there that could give the baby the world, I knew I could of but it is better when there are two parents there for support. When I went to my first doctor’s appointment, I asked my doctor if I was a bad person for wanting to give the baby up for adoption. She said no.
