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.
The role of compassion in nursing is sometimes overlooked, but it is one of the main reasons that I chose this profession. I considered medical school for a wh... ... middle of paper ... ... the more fulfilling the experience. Forcing myself outside of my comfort zone when it comes to nursing will enable me to reach my full potential. I want be generous with my time, knowledge, energy and compassion. I am looking forward to the opportunities to not only improve the quality of peoples’ health care, but to also get to know the people I am helping and form relationships with them.
As a clinical observer, I found an opportunity to create a solid foundation on patient diagnosis and treatment, and not to mention, long hours with charting and recording patients’ information. Finally, I believe my experience as a CPhT, clinical experience along with knowledge and passion for helping people will help me become a successful physician assistant candidate. While working in groups as an undergraduate student, I would always motivate myself and dedicate to reach the team goal. And learning from my shadowing experience, I think that motivation to give fullest attention and care to patients is very important. I believe being a PA is having great responsibility and with my educational background, cultural diversity and strong desire to be a health practitioner, I am ready for this challenge.
A public health degree is promoting health and the prevention of disease and injury to a population as a whole. Careers in public health will always be an expanding and needed as we progress toward the future, because health of our population will always be a top priority. This career choice is for an individual who wants to help others by educating, improving the lives of others and the community for the chance to make a difference. The Public Health field encompasses a wide variety of career paths, from community health workers to health educators. My interests in Public Health involve Medical Administration because you need to have the passion to assist others, to motivate and improve their health.
My unique background and my dedication have equipped me to make a meaningful contribution to the field by providing a sympathetic ear to the concerns of my patients and to interact with them on a personal level, just as David did with me. I expect the program to provide strong clinical training with a balance between medical education and patient care and will help me master new skills and sharpen my clinical judgment. The patient is at the center of health care and it is only their satisfaction and improved quality of life that truly matters in the setting. The work is demanding and tiring, but ultimately fulfilling. I have aspirations of providing excellent care to every patient I encounter, and this program will provide me with the academic foundation necessary to do just that.
Upon entering my career, I had assumed that professional and financial success would surely bring personal fulfillment. This realization triggered a process of self-searching that led me to medicine. The commitment to provide others with healthcare is a serious decision for anyone. As I examined my interests and goals, however, I underwent a process of personal growth that has propelled me towards a career as a physician. A career in medicine will allow me to integrate thoroughly my passion for science into a public-service framework.
Bodybuilders engage in extensive practice and personal progression, in order to master the skills of their trade. As a physician, I intend to integrate all of these fundamental principles. I desire to master the skills necessitated by current demands of medicine and to motivate and empathize with my patients, so they can live long and prosperous lives. Being able to make sound medical judgments is a result of immense study and practice, over a life time. A successful bodybuilder also relies on the same principles.
During my medical school, I came across some doctors who were US trained. I got particularly impressed by their patient interaction, thought process, decision making and clinical acumen. It was my discussion with these doctors that ignited my interest in getting trained in US. I believe I have the passion and determination that this field demands. My work as medical officer has taught me work ethics, team work, dedication, persistence and a passion to perform best under all circumstances.
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.
These core values have sculpted me into the man I am today. Good communication and listening skills are invaluable in all health care systems and I pride myself in knowing that I will bring both of these skills to MSU’s College of Nursing. While in the nursing program, we will be interacting with fellow students, nurses, patients, and doctors. With my open personality and ability to work well with others I believe that these interactions will not only be positive, but productive as well. While in the program and after graduation, we will be working with patients from diverse backgrounds.
