Upon observation of the circulating nurse, I noticed that she was very interactive and involved in the surgery. One of the responsibilities of the circulating nurse is to retrieve any surgical supplies that are not available in the operating room and to make or receive any calls for the surgeon. During the surgery, I noticed the nurse call for an x-ray for the surgeon, the laboratory for biopsy samples, and the operating room floor front desk to inform them that the surgery would be later than expected. This is her responsibility as the surgeon cannot break sterility by touching the phone and it is easier for him to communicate through her and not leave the surgical site. Also in the operating room, I observed the scrub nurses’ roles. Before the operation, the scrub nurse opened all of the sterile packages, arranged them on the sterile field, and took count of what was there along with the circulating nurse. The scrub nurse did this because she is sterile during the entire procedure, and once the sterile packs are opened, the contents can only be handled by sterile personnel. The scrub nurse also was ready and waiting at the sterile field at all times to get the surgeon any equipment needed from the sterile field. This is helpful to the surgeon because it enables the surgeon to stay at the surgical site and convenient for when
On wednesday at my internship was a very important day, because I got to go into the field and instead of go to the agency with went out into the field.

Through this program I have gained so much knowledge. Being a student in this program for two years has been a blessing. It has allowed me to get hands on patient care as a junior and experience five different careers to begin to rule out what careers are not right for me. Now as a senior, I have been able to have a year long internship at McLaren Bay Region in the Emergency Room. I have learned so many skills like blood glucose monitoring, electrocardiograms, and cardiopulmonary resuscitation. While being in this program I have truly found my passion for emergency medicine. This program has given me opportunities that most high school students don't have the chance to experience. The Health Technology Program has also prepared me for college. This program allowed me to write a career summary on my future career to explain what the job is, types of work and possible places of employment. I also wrote out a career plan. This made me sit down and plan out all of my classes for each semester at college and see how much it will cost. This has made me more aware of the importance of being aware what classes I need to take and what ones are not important. This class there is always something to do and it is important to write down due dates so all assignments are turned in on time. This really allowed me to prepare for college and understand the importance of

I had to stand in the restroom with the patients because in the past they try and cheat the system. For example
The world is filled with different kinds of people who can learn information in different ways. Many people can learn simply through being taught in a traditional classroom with the help from textbooks. Of course, there are many other ways to learn new material. However, I strongly feel that actually observing work and seeing all the angles of work being performed can be more beneficial to a person. Internships can help people or students see and learn what they could not in a traditional class setting. They can also give students a better understanding of what their future profession might involve. It is very difficult to learn concepts until a person is able to see or experience them for his or herself. I chose to undergo an internship at a chiropractic clinic because chiropractic is the profession that I am striving to reach in my future.

This summer has by far been the most meaningful due to my internship at the Lloyd Moss Free Clinic. I had a wonderful opportunity to use my summer before college to explore healthcare professions and learn how a free clinic functions. Throughout my experience, I was exposed to many different professions within a clinic. My daily task consists of a wide variety of activities. I would begin by sorting and filing patient document, gathering charts for upcoming appointments, and helping the clinical operations director with projects regarding referrals.

The circulator or documenting nurse and anesthesiologist were around the sterile field (aseptic technique) without any contact with the patient whatsoever. As you would have guessed, the surgeon was the one who performed the surgery with the help of the scrub tech and monitored by the circulator nurse and anesthesiologist. The main duties of the circulator nurse was to document everything during the surgery from what medications used to how many sterile dressings were used, proving supplies to the surgeon and the scrub tech as needed,and making sure the room was prepare for the assigned surgery. This nurse also provides conform measurements for the patient while in the operation room. For instance, there was a patient who was too big for the operation bed, so the circulator nurse had to find additional supplies that would prevent the patient from sliding down the bed. Nurses always provide the finest education towards their line of duty but also take the time to teach those people who starting the nursing
