I consider my life unique and not like many ordinary lives today. Since I was very young, it has always been a strong feeling that my future job would be caring for many individuals. I grew up in a wonderful home with two loving parents. Yes, I am an only child, but don’t hold that against me just yet. I had many first cousins, whom I gladly call my sisters and brothers. My parents taught me at a very young age about hard work, love, responsibility, and the ability to appreciate life while striving to accomplish all my goals. Unfortunately, my family’s health history is not all that great. We have hypertension, thyroid problems, diabetes, and high cholesterol in our history like many others in this world. I learned at a young age to help take care of myself physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and nutritionally to help prevent some of my future problems. There are many experiences throughout my life that has attributed to the growth of who I am today. Early in my life, I learned to help take care of my grandparents. My deceased grandfather named Pressley Shaw was a war veteran of World War II. During the war, he was parallelized on his left side from a massive stroke while in active duty. He was told many times that he would not make it. He continued to work hard and with the help of many doctors, nurses, therapist, and our family members he lived a prosperous and happy life. I remember always helping him with his brace that was specially made for him to be able to walk. I was so intrigued by the mechanism of this brace and how he was always able to walk with this brace with ease. He was someone I looked up to because he strived to accomplish all his dreams and work after his stroke. Nothing ever pr... ... middle of paper ... ...rsing. Everyone must work as a team for the health and welfare of every patient on our unit. Now I am looking to pursue my career even further in nursing. I want to help as many patients as I can better themselves. I feel I am ready to accomplish a new role as a Nurse Practioner. I foresee I will still be active in health promotion while continuing my education skills and techniques to many about their chronic illness. It will allow me to guide them through their treatment options and work together as a family should. Listening and my communication skills will be my two best attributes that I will continue to lead with every day while opening my heart to all. I feel I will get more one on one care with all my patients and be able to make a change in their overall health care options. I look forward to my new challenge and welcome it with open arms.
