I believe in treating others the way I would desire to be treated. I believe in going above and beyond for my patients, whatever it takes and then some. I believe our patients are our utmost priority and preserving their dignity, self-respect and maintaining patient’s rights in a caring environment is of great importance to the wellbeing of the individual. As I reflect on my personal philosophy, a well-known story came to mind, “The Mary Denton Story”. The story I mentioned above is about a resident named Mary Denton, she saw where she could make a difference in the other residents’ lives and seized the opportunity to do so.
It comes with many challenges and stressors of every sort however, with all of its complexity my passion in caring for the people I serve comes great satisfaction. I care equally for the ill as I do for the healthy. To me illness prevention is as important as disease treatment and often find myself providing education to others such as friends, family, and of course my patients. As I continue my plans in furthering my education in completing my Bachelorette in Nursing (BSN), I will move forward in achieving my Masters in Nursing (MSN). Having achieved this will open more doors in continuing my career in Nursing Informatics (NI).
I am a licensed practice nurse who is compassionate, competent, and displays empathy for all my patients. My personal and professional experiences help me contribute to clients’ recovery and wellness which gives me a sense of pride that strengthens my commitment to this profession. I enjoy making people feel better and that is what drove me to this profession and is currently driving me to further my career in the nursing field. I am currently pursuing a degree as a registered nurse at Gwinnett Technical College. I believe this degree will help me to furthering my career, which will allow me to expand my passion to care for the sick and ill.
Becoming a nurse practitioner will grant me the autonomy of leading the care of my patients while simultaneously have the ability to seek out the guidance of the physicians when needed. I will be able to broaden my scope of medical practice while still applying my principles of nursing to patient care. I want to be the best skilled, most competent and empathetic nurse simply because I want to bring the safest and highest quality of care to my patients. More often than not, patients voice out that no one listens to them, not even their own doctors. This concern further inspires me to become a nurse practitioner that will provide quality care by understanding my patient as a person.
Christina Feist-Heilmeier, RN, beautifully explains what all nurses feel when they are called to their career: “Every nurse was drawn to nursing because of a desire to care, to serve, or to help." I deeply relate to her statement. The idea that I could change somebody’s life is incredibly enticing. Nursing is not easy, but it is not made to be. It is a hard path to follow, but the outcome is beautiful.
Working in the medical field has proven to be more of a reward than a task. It has enabled me with v... ... middle of paper ... ... step by step, mindful of others, flexible, yet enduring until the goal is achieved. It is with this tenacity and sense of purpose that I will apply myself to the MSN degree program at Metro State University. Patients are able to receive the best care if the nurses are able to pay thorough attention to each and every patient. Therefore, because of the shortage of nurses, nursing will provide me a plethora of chances to interact with patients in order to offer them my undivided attention and caring assistance.
My biggest reason for being interested in nursing is the connection they gain with their patients. Nurses are the ones who build relationships with their patients as they watch their patients’ progress and regain their health. The nurse is the person who spends the time getting to know the patients as they care for them, and that is the whole reason I want to go into the medical field. My passion in nursing is to develop bonds with my patients, and find ways to bring them back to their health. I know that the nursing profession is right for me, because I am the type of person who loves helping people and making sure that they are doing well.
Committing myself to lifelong learning is my second goal. Nurses need to cultivate and internalize a passion for learning throughout their careers, which provides a foundation for excellence in practice. I would like to become a Critical Care nurse since I work as a Health Technician in the ICU at the VA Hospital –Madison. I love taking care of people at their sickest. The intensity of the care and challenges presented at the job excite and motivate me.
I love knowing that I can try to help make someone 's life better just by doing something small, or even something big. I am a nurse, and I am going to Belmont College to continue my education in the field of nursing. I want to be a nurse because I love learning about what all the body does, and what things can affect it. I also want to be a nurse because I love helping others, and I want to do it for the rest of my life. I absolutely love Nursing.
Everyone has that one nurse that makes your hospital experience good or bad. When going into the nursing field in my opinion, there is always that one nurse that has made an impact on your life even if it is something so small, it helped you decide on your nursing career. I feel like the definition of a good nurse is understanding: someone who can be flexible, someone who has very good patience, and someone who can react with patients in a positive way. I have always had the desire to be a nurse since I was little and this is something I know I can achieve. The purpose of this paper is to compare and contrast my values as they relate to nursing and my possible future career and my plans.
