They deserve to also get the care and love that nurses give and that is what I hope to do in my nursing career.I have always wanted to become a nurse since I was a little girl, seeing both of my grandmothers working in a hospitals and always helping everyone in need. My goals in becoming a nurse is just the basic foundation of just helping people who physically cannot help themselves. I want to be able to shed light in people's lives who are losing it because of their situation. I feel as nurses is the backbone in the hospital. The nurses are there day in and day out with the patients, holding their hands and walking them and their families throughout such a difficult time.
After talking to my grandma, a retired registered nurse, I found that this could be a possible career choice. One of the things she loved most about her job was being able to get to know the patients personally. Nurse anesthetists are able to develop a relationship with their patients, but they don't have to do the dirty work like bathing patients and changing their bed pans. Another reason becoming a nurse anesthetist appealed to me is because I like to challenge myself. The classes are tough and several years of school are required.
The American Nurses Association defines nursing as, “Nursing is a profession within the health care sector focused on the care of individuals, families, and communities so they may attain, maintain, or recover optimal health and quality of life.” I strongly believe I was born for the nursing profession. Caring for others has been embedded in my soul. Over the years I have ignored my calling and pursued Accounting, but my inner soul would not allowed me to continue in this profession. I love to interact with people and providing a helping hand to those in need as always brought some form of gratification to my life. My decision to become a nurse was greatly influenced by my beautiful mother.
It made me feel real good knowing that I had taken care of them. I knew I wanted to be a nurse when I grew up but, I just started hanging around the wrong people at school and got caught up. I came to job corp to get my high school diploma and a trade. I knew that the CAN program was the best program for me. My instructors have been great in teaching me everything I need to do.
I wanted to be a nurse because I wanted to be like my mom. She has been a nurse for about 35 years and she has a lot of respect from her colleagues and people who are superior. I want to be well-known in the hospital and become a successful nurse just like my mom and gain the respect from all of my colleagues. I know that with my mom’s
I, of course, knew my mother as a mother. As I have reached adulthood and become a mother myself, I have also known her as a friend. My mom shared much of herself with me, and I saw sides of my mother as she struggled with her cancer that I had never seen before, especially her strong belief in positive thinking and the importance of quality of life. I was privileged to know so many facets of my mother, but certainly I did not know all. There were parts of her life that I didn’t see, relationships that I didn’t know about.
When I saw how much the Alzheimer patient’s daughter appreciate my care for her mother by treating my patient as I was treating someone I loved, I felt like I am working toward my goal of being a professional nurse; I can put aside my personal feeling and act professional according to what I learned in nursing school. This is the first time I took care of a patient that has Alzheimer, I didn’t know what can I do to make a difference in her life at the beginning. But by applying my learned experiences from the nursing school and by being myself, I actually achieve the goal of providing the best care as a professional nurse student to my patient. And my actions also lead to the satisfaction and happiness from her family. Nothing can make me feel more satisfied when I saw the appreciation from the patient and their family.
The purpose of this paper is to compare and contrast my values as they relate to nursing and my possible future career and my plans. My goals are to someday become a pediatric nurse: I love helping others and working with young children so I feel like this is the field for me. I interviewed a nurse who I have looked up to my whole life. I wanted to become a nurse, but watching her as nurse made me decide I wanted this for myself even more: her RN initials are JSJ. JSJ has an associate’s degree in nursing and is working towards her bachelor’s degree.
After that story was told to me, I didn’t want to be anything related to nursing. It wasn’t until my step mom went to school to be LPN that I realized it would be possible for me to do. I saw how much happiness it gave her, and I want the same thing. She loved helping the patients by treating them, and helping their families cope with their disease. She has many responsibilities, such as making sure the patients knows how to properly care for ones self, and getting a sickly patient to their maximum state of good health.
Women, children, and families have better lives because of the work of certified nurse-midwives. I have always wanted to make a difference-and have a positive influence on health care, which has lead me to my interest of the midwifery profession. To learn more about midwifery I chose to interview Kathleen London-Lopes. Mrs. Lopes is a board certified nurse midwife at Highland Obstetrics and Gynecology, in Fallriver Massachusetts. Along with the information she gave me about being a midwife I also researched information on onetonline.org.
