I witnessed medical miracles and horrors. Half her body would sweat, while the other half would be cold and look cyanotic. Her diseases sparked my interest in neurology and introduced me to a neurosurgeon, Dr. Filler, whom I will be shadowing this summer. He has been in our lives for twenty years and in that time he has become my model of a great doctor. Dr. Filler not only treats my mom 's physical symptoms, but her emotional needs as well; he treats his patient as a
My interest in healthcare began in 2010. I had the opportunity to work as an occupational therapist aid, specifically working with children with autism for a year. Within that year my interest in healthcare had grown. Working as an occupational therapist aid I’ve had the opportunity to work with many people from different backgrounds, learning about autism and what it does to families, but the greatest part was that this job helped build my patience and it reinforced the passion in me to help people. Becoming a PA has been my passion since I learned about the profession through a conversation with my uncle four years ago.
There are many places where a nurse can be employed. The places where nurses can work are endless. Some places where nurses can work include hospitals, camps, tourist destinations, prisons, schools, military bases, homeless shelters, ambulatory care centers, and medical
The field of nursing is a career that has intrigued me for years now. It has become a very popular specialty of healthcare to go into each year for many adults. After working in healthcare at Marietta Memorial Hospital, mainly in the emergency department, I have come to the result that I want to make the next step to pursue to become a registered nurse as a profession. My father has been my biggest influence for me to pursue registered nursing as a lifelong career. He passed away this past May from strokes.

In the beginning, I wanted to become a surgeon; my fine motor skills were something I had always worked hard on to ensure that I could paint the finest details in my paintings, and this skill could easily be translated over into surgery, as the same precision is required of a surgeon when operating. Through my high school, I was able to obtain an internship at the local hospital. When I set foot inside the oncology department, I wasn’t too sure about how I would like it. After watching medical documentaries and television shows for years, I had my heart set on surgery. I learned so much in my first week, but I was still unsure of whether or not oncology should be something I would pursue.
One thing I've always wanted to do, even as a child was to take care of people. Once I became older and was able to take classes in the High School, I found that I enjoyed nursing class after taking two years of fit. Now I'm working to get a job at one of the Nursing homes in Beatrice and get my CNA (which they said they would help!). Being a Registered Nurse involves many tasks and responsibilities. Some of those responsibilities are assess a patient's health problems/needs, monitor all aspects of patient's care, and modify patients treatment plans as indicated.
Over the summer, I completed my community service hours at Ohio Valley Medical Center. At the beginning, I was afraid of whether I would like it but after my first day there I could not wait to go back the following week. It gave me some experience in the hospital since I want to work in the Intensive Care Unit when I am older. I met so many volunteers, new and old, that taught me a lot about volunteering and the hospital. I would not give up my summer involvement at the hospital for anything.
I have learned the importance of love and support in the face of trouble by watching my mother, the backbone of a local parent support group. Families need to know they are not alone, that I, too, was scared to see my brother gasp for breath after running up a flight of stairs. I have seen more aspects of the personal side of medicine than many people my age. I understand first hand the comforting effect a friendly smile and reassuring confidence from a doctor has on both patients and families. My family history is what sparked my interest in medicine, but my own experience has held my attention in recent years.
Health risk is very important to nurses, because they put their lives on the line to help someone. Most nurses work for many years before realizing nursing hurts your body. Many nurses from a long time ago made an impact on today´s nursing habits. Just like Clara Barton created American Red Cross. America still uses this organization today to help people
