I also try to speak to as much cardiologist that I can talk to ask them for any advice in regards to what step to take. The most important step that I’ve taken was trying to build a strong foundation in math and science. The reason why I try to make these two field my strongest is because they are the used in every classes that I will have to take for my major. They will also be used every day as a cardiologist because I would have to be able to prescribe medication to my patients and also know their side effects. In those subject I’ve also taken the harder classes in them such as AP biology and AP statistic.
Because of this self-examination, I have decided to pursue a career in health care. The process has been difficult at times but always illuminating.

A New Way of Learning: High Fidelity Simulation in Nursing Education For years nurses have gained experience in the medical field through clinical rounds at hospitals and doctors offices. Learning has always taken place first through textbooks and then through personal experience during required clinical time. These methods have proven effective but include limitations to the amount of exposure a student can gain before entering the workforce. A new way of learning is on the rise with the use of High Fidelity Simulations (HFS) or the Sim Man. HFS is a computerized life size manikin that simulates real human responses to treatment.
This reflection paper will illustrate my classroom experience, internship experience, and learning experience. The GSIRC highly encourage hands on experience for student interns. In order to have a sympathetic notion on what to do as an intern, the PEES courses taken previous semesters were remarkably accommodating when assisting the clients through rehabilitating workouts.

Having the understanding of the anatomy terms helped me, as an intern, to understand majority of the diagnosis shown on the patients’ charts.
