Every day brings more opportunity and more experiences. My most important contribution to nursing right now is my positive outlook on life, enthusiasm, and the ability to offer hope to patients and their families. The contribution I hope to make to nursing in the future is being a leader and mentor, and be an inspiration to others to enter into the nursing profession. I would also like to contribute to improving healthcare quality through becoming a nurse educator and share my knowledge and experience with
I am going to Belmont College for their Registered Nursing (RN) program. My proposed career is nursing. I chose this career because I love learning about how the body works and I love helping others. I love learning about how the body works, what can go wrong, and what certain things do to the body. I’ve always loved helping others in my life, and I want to continue to do it for the rest of my life.
Having achieved this will open more doors in continuing my career in Nursing Informatics (NI). Moving from the clinical specialist at bedside, to now my current position as clinical information technologist (IT), allows me to continue to work indirectly with patients, which I enjoy. I feel I am now more of the advocate for my fellow nurses and physicians building the “user friendly” electronic health record (EHR). Nursing is ever changing, challenging, rewarding, and I am grateful to have had all the opportunities in my career. My career journey will take me to a different aspect of nurturing however, just as important our patients are we too must nurture each other.
My reasons for selecting a career in nursing stem directly from my desire to help our prospering population and community. This career appeals to me because it embodies what I strive to become, a person of influence, a guide, a respected adult, a mentor, and a person that can be trusted and looked up to with great passion. Another reason for selecting a career in nursing has a lot to do with my current job position at Generations Elder Care. Working with the elderly community at this personal care home has enriched my life in many ways, including one for my passion of learning more about the nursing field. As I shadowed the nurses entering the facility I watched them do their assessments on the residents which has peaked my curiosity.
All the things that I have learned while in nursing school has taught me how to become a health advocate for others. If a loved one is sick, I will be able to better advocate for them about specific treatment options available. I am blessed to have gotten the opportunity to attend nursing school as it has taught me such valuable lessons that I will carry with me
Mary Denton story has taught me so much such as the difference one person can make in someone’s live. I use a patient-centered approach to care, which encompasses the total needs of the patient; I also encourage the family to become closely involved in patient’s health care. As all these factors plays an integral role in the patient’s recovery. Florence Nightingale understood very well the psychological connection to healing and actually believed that nurses should always speak up when things were unacceptable or inadequate. Florence Nightingale has paved the way for nurses more than we will ever known.
When I got into nursing, I knew that I wanted to help people and make them feel comfortable in their time of illness. This vocation of helping people through nursing, affects my future as I see the endless opportunities I can have to be around people in their time of need. Nursing is my calling, as being a nurse has
You interact daily with physicians, physical therapists, pharmacist you are able to see glimpses at other careers and work together to create the best care of plan for your patients Finally, the last perk of a nursing career that fascinated me towards the profession is the diversity of career choices. I desire to have the ability to switch from various fields and gain different experiences and skills to assist with my continual development of being the best
At the age of 6, I knew exactly what I wanted to do, and became interested in the nursing field. As a kid, I was always happy when my grandfather 's nurse would come over to care for his wounds, because I knew that her good spirits and good care always made him feel better. I believe this is the reason why I did not grow up fearing the doctor’s office, instead I grew up associating the doctor’s office as a place that made people feel better. As a certified medical assistant I’ve had an impact in patient’s care and as a future nurse I want to continue to provide the best patient care that my grandfather once received. In addition to fulfilling my prerequisites for the nursing program I have been part of the healthcare field as a certified medical assistant for over four years in preparation for my career in nursing.
This I believed helped jump start me towards my nursing career. I felt I was helping many to better themselves and worked full time while finishing up my recommended classes for nursing school. I had a dream and was following
